    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course if you are interested in World War II and particularly the Holocaust. Dr. Bisson is very set in his ways when it comes to class. He expects you to show up and participate. Getting the reading done is the most important part of the class! Overall, it is really interesting and you learn a lot about the Holocaust!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were probably the in class discussions. We had really great conversations about why the Holocaust happened and what motivated Hitler and the Nazi's to do what they did. I was lucky enough to have a pretty active class who all shared this interest which also helped a lot!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read. It's sometimes a lot and you get annoyed, but it's the most important part of the class. If you read and take notes for each reading you'll do fine on the tests and it will help you a lot with the research paper!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course and teacher helps you stay in tune with yourself regarding the world you live in. The class and teacher encourages inclusive thinking about one's neighbor or just about taking timeout of your day to slow down and perhaps do nothing.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights are the easy but hard work load - as in, he presents a ton of material to you but its up to the student to engage and absorb the content he gives. If one doesn't want to, they probably could finesse their way through the class with a good grade, but what's the fun in that? You just spent all this money to attend a school to not be present in your entirety?

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time well. The days become longer when you utilize your time well

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened my eyes and my mind to the importance of letting myself enjoy the little things in life. We talked all about distractions in the course, like what we get distracted by, why we get distracted, and how to determine if the distraction is worth pursuing. I am one who is easily distracted in class, but also in life in general. This class allowed me to make use of a trait, I once thought was only an obstacle I needed to overcome.

    Course highlights:

    This course changed my perspective of how I could live my life. I don't have to suppress every distraction that comes my way. Some things are worth taking a detour for on the way to a bigger goal.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell any student considering taking this course to have fun with it! Don't worry too much about specific requirements of the class, just do your best to interpret what Dr. E is asking of you and put forth your maximum effort. Overall, keep an open mind to all the assignments. They may seem pointless or outside of the box at first, but if you really work hard on them, you'll be surprised to find how much you can learn!
