    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will make you question every single thing you've been taught about "the meaning of life". It's definitely a very interesting way to begin your journey in college.

    Course highlights:

    The professor is definitely the highlight of this course. Prof. Guise-Gerrity is not only brilliant, but she pushes you to think outside the box and question what you stand for. The most crucial information that I've learned from this course was: You don't know anything. What you thought you knew is all a lie. Now that you know you don't know anything, you're forced to find the truth. Good luck!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ! Read every single thing she offers you. Why? Because these readings are the basis of most of our modern sciences. Once you get a hang of these readings, you understand a lot more than you'd ever expect.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Wonderful course! If one takes the time to do the reading, the pay-off is worth the time spent. This class helps critical thinking in ways that would have been great when taking the SAT.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the material (Kant, Aristotle, Socrates, Plato). I learned it is okay and even best to question why something is the way it is. The answer may never come but the questioning in and of itself opens one's mind up to a new world of possibilities and ideas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To truly succeed and benefit from this course, do the reading! This piece of advice traverses all classes, but it is nevertheless very important for this course. Do not read just to read; read to understand. This takes more time, but it is the only way to truly learn.
