    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this class because it was very helpful and it was a general class that had to be taken. One impact that this class made on me is that it expanded my writing skills. Sometimes there was a lack of student-professor engagement, and for that I did not enjoy the class as much as I could have.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights in this class would consist of the days where Professor Hayes presented a video or a movie. Most of the content that was taught in the class was fairly easy, and most of it was self explanatory. The professor mostly focused on teaching the class about different types of writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I could give is to not overthink it; the content is fairly easy to understand. If for some reason it is hard to grasp this subject does have a class book that has all of the information you need to know.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Absolutely recommend! This course was the best English class I've taken so far, Meg was awesome and the class was very intriguing!

    Course highlights:

    I think the best part of this course had to be the different teaching style Meg has. She spent more time getting to know us more than most profs, and went out of her way to involve her students in the lectures and daily class activities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to enjoy this class. Go in with an open mind because her class is different and will take you out of your comfort zone.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She is an excellent teacher. Her way of teaching is different than the other instructors that I had. I highly recommend her to anyone for EN 102. When you get a bad grade or didn't turn in homework, she lets you redo it and still turn it in after 24 hours. She even allows you to bring in writing works to help her on how you learn and you can get advice and get a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I did relearn some information, but there were other parts that we learned that made me see English in another way which forced me to work harder and question different aspects that will help me with assignments.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to other students is this. Work like all the classes you have as a job. It will help you in the long run. Test out different study options. I did a lot of testing with how to study, and I found two that works for me and cramming sometimes helps too, but I don't recommend jamming.
