    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Alfieiri cares about his students and inspires everyone just by having a zest for life. As a freshman, I needed this. He pepped up the entire classroom.

    Course highlights:

    This is Water- to always deepen our perspectives. To look around, to see things differently. He didn't strictly focus on readings, he wanted to know what we thought. He facilitated discussions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded! Participate in the discussion. If you're worried about your presentation- don't be, it's relaxed as anything- I sat on a table for mine! Talk to professor Alfieri, his perspective is gold

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class, given that Professor Donovan is a very bright, engaging and interesting individual that brings this "dreaded" required course to live. The one thing that may turn some off is that the theme for the class is war, and that is what all of our papers are about. I want to personally say that writing about war (with a specific focus on the experiences of soldiers and mental reactions such as PTSD) has been a very informational process. Research is very interesting since it is not on a dull subject at all. However, everybody's preferences are different. The papers and other assignments are introduced in detail and she tells you exactly what she expects from your submissions. She offers office hours where she gives great advice and also lets you rewrite the papers for a better grade if that is something you need. She is very intellectual, witty and overall a genuine person. As one of my first professors at the university, I can wholeheartedly say that she has given me a great experience in my very first college courses!

    Course highlights:

    Despite the brevity of the course, being that it was a semester long, I have learned a credible amount. Although at times the papers made me feel overwhelmed (due to my personal desire to do the best on them as I could) the time and patience I incorporated into their completion have transformed me into a completely different, and more advanced, writer. This course is ultimately what you make of it. If you are willing and devoted to completing the papers carefully and with care, you will exit the class at the end of the semester with writing skills that will undoubtedly bring you success in the rest of your academic career as well as in your future professional endeavors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As stated previously, my number one piece of advice is that what you get out of this course depends on the effort you put into it. If you complete all the readings, assignments and produce well written and thought out papers, you will find the class discussions engaging and the lessons will resonate with you instead of being completely forgotten the second class has ended. If you put effort into the papers and go to her for further guidance and advice, you will definitely find yourself being a better and more detailed writer than when you began the course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was great because it really helps you develop your writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about analyzing texts more in depth and accurately.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always take advantage of re-writes. You learn about your writing and helps raise you're grade. It also makes you stand out to your professor.
