    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very interesting and kept my attention the entire three hour night class. Not everyone can teach a subject like this at night and keep me away, but Prof Arnwine is a very good storyteller and professor!

    Course highlights:

    We study a new book about every two weeks and each book holds its own new world. I love the way Arnwine brings each book to life!!!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are not very good with stories and understanding storytelling elements, it may be a bit tough for you. This is not a part of the course, but this knowledge helped me though it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Studying ancient Greek literature at 7:45 am on a Monday morning proved to be rather difficult for me, so I don't recommend taking it that early! That being said, Aaron Johnson is a genius. He is a difficult professor, but the material that you are taught is valuable to a liberal arts education. Make the best of it!

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Johnson does an incredible job of relating ancient literature, concepts, and culture to present-day issues. He legitimately blew my mind several times.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes, and try to review the material on a weekly basis that way it doesn't seem like such a daunting task by the time the exam comes around.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Lay is an adjunct professor who teaches Hum 201 on Thursday nights. Since it's a night class it has a 3hr duration. Prof. Lay gives a VERY monotone 3hr lecture each class. His test material isn't over his lectures which make it even worse. There is a lot of reading, a lot of essays, and his test reviews are burdensomely‚Äč long.

    Course highlights:

    You discuss a lot of Greek literature and he has a weird obsession with architecture.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take Lay. Don't take a once a week class. Don't procrastinate.
