    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class seems to be required for most majors. Overall, the course with this particular teacher has been very, verrrry slow paced, but the professor is nice enough and will work with you if you are struggling. I don't know how other ENG 110 courses with different professors are, but if you're looking for a professor who is very calm and understanding I would recommend Bob Post's class.

    Course highlights:

    The professor never actually went over how to write an essay, so those who take this class should know the basics of writing short, personal essays. I don't think my writing improved, but I learned what pathos, egos, and logos are and we went over different types of evidence in every class. I also was reminded how to cite my sources. Since I don't find the class particularly pleasant, nothing really stands out to me as a "highlight".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you shown up to class, participate, and complete assignments on time, you will get a decent grade even if you aren't good at writing. There are "journal entry" essays every week about a simple subject such as something that happened in high school and your favorite food. The first 2 are in-class and the rest are handed in at the end of the semester . There are 2 essays that are worth 50 points each, one about a person and the other about a place. All of these only need to be a page and a half, typed, and double spaced. There is also a research paper that is suppose to teach you the basics of citation. It is all very basic and easy enough to pass with an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great class for getting more comfortable with writing at a college level. Many new techniques and ways to go about writing papers not discussed in High School.

    Course highlights:

    The positive atmosphere was great. It was good knowing that all of the other students were there to learn and you were all taking strides together. I learned many new ways to write papers, whether that be the into or conclusion there was always something new to do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to want to actually be involved in the class. If your strategy is to usually write a paper the night before, you might want to take a different approach with this class.
