    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Walz is super knowledgeable on the topics covered and presents it in a way that is almost like he is telling a story! I felt I got the better end of the deal than just taking it at my high school junior year with my high school instructor!

    Course highlights:

    I gained the basic knowledge about the beginings of US history because Mr. Walz so passionately cared about the topic, it was way more fun to listen to him! He also makes some good jokes now and then!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch every lecture, and don't forget to take notes. It is also good to take HIST 152 the next term.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the course, Prof. Smith was an Amazing teacher.

    Course highlights:

    She taught history in a way that made you want to study and learn in. Not so much the "boring? facts, but the reason why the evens where happening and the back stories behind it all.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I was study about an extra hour and a half a day per hour of class time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Kemper is so passionate about what he is teaching that it truly engages students- if they allow themselves to be engaged.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new appreciation for history in general. But I loved learning about the Native Americans that lived before us. Kemper really focuses on how well you know something, in that he expects you to connect ideas together and prove your points.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention. If you don't pay attention, you won't pass the class. Kemper provides outlines of notes, but you have to take your own notes and he talks extremely quickly. Also, actually study for the tests. You can't "flounce" your way through this class and expect to get a good grade.
