    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Learned a lot about writing; formal writing, casual writing, letters, essays, stories, fiction, etc. These are skills that I will carry with me throughout my life in an situation or predicament I may find myself along the way.

    Course highlights:

    I did a lot of reading during this class. I found a lot of great articles and heard many interesting stories during the time I spent in this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the work load. In any Lang or English course there will be a lot of essays, and writing pieces expected from you. Don't wait until the night before to throw together a 10 page paper, some do but they never turn out just right. I can say that I didn't make deans list my freshman year by cutting corners and procrastinating, I had to study and keep up on my homework assignments, ensuring successful papers during this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazing! I learned so much more about writing and critical thinking then any other course in my career! Everything I learned is still applied daily in all my other courses!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to critically think, how to research and how to write. All of these individually are skills every college student needs so when they are wrapped up in a nice bow by a single course: it is great! Writing research papers have never been so much fun!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework! It is easy to skip assignments but trust me: each and every assignment makes you grow a little bit more.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She was such a sweet professor. She made it a point to make herself as available as possible. Her assignments were interesting and artsy while holding to what's usually expected within the writing curriculum. She made you think without forcibly trying to change your mindset. She was genuinely wanted to know what you thought. The class was like an open forum and she made everyone feel welcome.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the research project and I used to despise them with a burning passion. But hers, it wasn't set within confining borders, she was willing to listen to any suggestion you gave so long as you were able to have a different argument to defend your choice throughout the month span she gave you to complete the assignment every time she asked.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Well, it's mandatory to take if you ever want to declare your major. Or at least it is at my school, I can't speak for others. So for those who're ready to push their analytical sides, take it, smash it, and walk out with your high average(so long as you put the work into it), declare your major, and embark further onto your journey of bettering your future.
