    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    What an eye-opening and incredible course! The Great Conversations program is so unique, and while it is a lot of hard work and late nights writing papers or finishing a book, the wealth of knowledge you acquire is more than worth the struggle. The first semester focuses on Greek and Hebrew literature and takes students through an impressive booklist that dives deeper than anything your peers might be reading. It's a five-semester program, but the professors all care deeply for the subject matter and for the growth of their students, that you will never feel too lost.

    Course highlights:

    I loved reading the works of the Greek Philosophers! It was eye-opening to realize that the deep thoughts and intellectual struggles that we face today were thought about over 2000 years ago. We all realized how insignificant but really incredible our lives are.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do a lot of work. The profs will warn you, but it's far tougher than you can anticipate, and you are surrounded by other high achievers who will challenge you. But keep trying, and you'll persevere!
