The Chattahoochee River: Politics and Science gave us a real-world perspective on the topics we studied. Instead of just learning about ecosystems and river-based industries, we visited them and learned directly from the people who depend on the Chattahoochee. JanTerm inspires us to go above and beyond in a non-traditional subject and it allows faculty to share their incredible knowledge with the next generation.Student, Class of 2020
