We can't help but shine the spotlight on Reserve's great outdoors! WRA occupies 190-acres in the beautiful town of Hudson. Outside our historic buildings you'll find wide green lawns, woods, gardens, trails and fields. We even have a pond. Our students experience it all—from outdoor classes and meetings to movies and s'mores under the stars. Off campus, Reserve students are a short walk to downtown Hudson or a short car ride to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The Student Life Office has been busy this fall planning all types of fun outdoor events on-and-off campus, check out a recent weekend's list of activities.
With over 100 courses at WRA, you'll be able to go way beyond the basics. Let's take a closer look at a unique English elective offered to juniors and seniors
Identity Crisis: When Cultures Clash: This course begins with the prototypical tale of one man torn between the push-and-pull of identity formation: Batman. From there, we turn to characters who feel culturally dislocated. You’ll explore questions guiding our inquiry: How does shared history inform our understanding of who we are? What happens at sites of cultural collision? What is lost? Gained? Changed? How do uneven dynamics of power factor into cultural confusion and its aftermath? This course readings include: The Dark Knight Returns; On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous; White Teeth; No Turning Back: A Hopi Indian Woman’s Struggle to Live in Two Worlds; and Persepolis.
