    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good class, however, you must really devote yourself to it, or you will not get good grades. Work hard at reading the books and understanding the content of them, or else you will be entirely lost. She is a good professor, but her TAs are the ones who grade everything and they can be extremely harsh when they want to be.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge on Japanese samurai history and the history of life during the Heian period of Japan.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes on EVERYTHING she says, no matter how silly it seems. The TA may put it on the quizzes. Also, take notes, as they'll help you with your essays!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The PVTA/UMass transit is a pretty fabulous system during the school year (it slows down quite a bit during the summers, but it is still around). Every 15 minutes or so, there are busses at every stop. They will take you pretty much anywhere you'd like to go in UMass.

    Course highlights:

    It's easy to use the public transport too much, though. You'll often see students who sit around waiting for a bus for 10 minutes when it would take less than that amount of time to get to their class on foot.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    We've got everything you could possibly want: Division I teams in most sports, a huge variety of IMs and clubs, Quidditch, and a giant, totally free-to-use rec center, plus three other gyms and various other fitness facilities on campus.
