    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this class. Personally, I do not like writing very much, so I cannot really recommend a writing class to others who do not like writing. As for people who enjoy writing, this class was not overly challenging, so I would not recommend it to them, either.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was definitely the focus on current events. There has been so much going on lately, it is nice to have a fairly impartial outlet about my opinions on current events, even if the outlet is not one I would choose for myself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to watch out for procrastination. There were very few assignments for this course, but they were large enough that it would be exceedingly hard to do them well if you waited until the last minute to start.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Amanda teaches with a unique perspective on the value of writing. This course is very interesting and requires a high level of creative thinking. It is not a generic writing course due to the required reading materials.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did this class enhance my writing skills; however, I also learned about the value of relaxation and stillness. Beginning each class with relaxation methods allowed me to take time out of my day to reflect on what is truly important; myself.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the thinker's notebooks and the readings. If you fall behind, it will make essays much more difficult to write.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    GSW 1110 and 1120 are required for all BGSU students. This course is great and teaches you how to write academic papers, and break away from the typical 5-paragraph form. It teaches you how to get your point across in your writing, and to make your argument clear. I would also recommend Dr. Jordan because he does an great job making it clear of what he is looking for in our paper, and gives honest feedback. He makes class interesting and fun.

    Course highlights:

    You gain experience in writing academic papers. It teaches you how to make multiple points in an essay, and make 5+ page essays. It is helpful to have a class that specifically teaches you how to write papers, so when you write papers for other classes, you aren't totally lost and unsure of how to approach your topics. This course also teaches you how to correctly cite sources, and how to use the correct format.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend learning how to make a design plan and how to make infographics. I would also say that academic writing in college is much different than writing papers in high school.
