    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mosaic I is a course on classical, and more often than not, philosophical literature. This could easily be the most boring class one has to take in college. Luckily for me, I have Professor Orodenker teaching my course. He's a very down-to-earth professor who's been teaching this fr well over twenty years. He understands that many students may find this material a bore to go through, so every day in class he makes sure that we talk about the material in a way that gets us all engaged.

    Course highlights:

    I personally enjoy many of the texts that are required for this course. In the first few weeks we read through Gilgamesh and The Apology, which are both very introspective and philosophical texts. Each day in class after a short lecture, we would split up into groups and discuss the different ideas and symbols that were presented in the texts, and then we would share what we thought and discuss the ideas with the class. So far it has been excellent, and I cannot imagine that the rest of the semester will be any different.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a very simple course as long as you actively read the material you are supposed to, when you are supposed to (and don't be afraid to take a few notes every once in a while). Other than that, understand that the classroom is the perfect place to ask questions about the readings, and it is most imperative to open discussions and talk to the professor and your fellow classmates.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Since this is a GenEd course, everyone is required to take it at some point during their time at Temple. However, Mr. Jurlando is a great professor who is engaging and keeps the material interesting and exciting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about old texts that aren't often studied anymore and we studied connections between them as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material! He isn't too harsh with homework so take just a few minutes to read it!
