    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, the best thing about this class was how much it improved my writing. I came in a decent writer and I left an experienced one. For me, style and a limited vocabulary were never a problem in my writing. However, with the help of my professor, I realized that my writing was not concise enough. I was using too many words to express a simple thought. That all changed after I took this course. Now I always reread every new sentence I write and think about all the different ways I can express those notions more succinctly.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the most memorable aspect of this class was probably how we were forced to volunteer at a nearby elementary school for two hours every week. Sometimes the best way to grow as a writer is to teach others about writing and it was just incredibly refreshing to interact with diverse groups of young faces every week. In a way, it was nostalgic watching those kids struggle with concepts that come to easily to me now. Then, I think back to when I struggled with the same things and it just brings a smile to my face, the realization that there are so many surprises lying in wait for those kids.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Walk into this class eager to learn but ready to accept criticism. Professor Vos is simply one of the most knowledgeable English professors I have ever known and he can understand many things about you that you have not even realized for yourself just from reading your writing. For instance, I never knew I was a poet until he commented on my essays. He could just tell that I loved manipulating the English language to express my thoughts differently
