This class was tough.
This course was challenging and aggravating at times, but I think it exemplifies the saying that help is available to those who ask for it. Very individual, the course seemed daunting and the professor seemed mean, but once I asked for help and developed a relationship with her the course became easier and she became warmer. The Modern American Presidency taught me the work and effort necessary to write a good college paper, and for that I am very grateful.
I learned a lot of historical information of the presidents from Franklin Delano Roosevelt to Obama and beyond--much consideration and discussion was given to the current presidential election. It was very interesting to see how in under a decade or two presidents and presidential patterns can be compared against each other.

Advice for students:
I would say that it is essential to keep up with the readings and try to go to office hours at least twice before the mid term and or first paper. It is essential to have the professor know you by name and work harder as the course goes on so your grade pattern shows an upward trajectory.
