    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Kibbe is a wonderful teacher and I personally benefitted greatly from her lectures. She manages to stay on topic (despite talking about her little white dog) and I know that my class loved her so much that we even pooled some money to get her a collar for her dog.

    Course highlights:

    Her lectures were very thorough, and she makes it clear that you must also read any supplemental readings she assigns (hint: they will be questions on the tests). Not only that, but just before a test, she held review sessions for any who would like to attend.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your work, whenever she gives out a review, make sure you know everything that's on it, because if you do, you can ace her tests easy. P.S. Some of her answer choices in for her Multiple Choice are Star Wars references.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As someone who was never particularly interested in American History, Professor Kibbe gave a new life to it that had me more than interested and thriving in the class in no time.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of American History that I was never aware had happened despite taking numerous courses over that very subject throughout grade school. Having a thorough understanding of the past of the culture one is currently a part of is extremely important for someone who wants to be a part of what causes it to progress, and this class made me feel more confident in my knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course seriously, and be responsible for the work that is assigned. It is not an obscene amount of book work or essays, but because of that each assignment and exam should be done with care.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an amazing course and you are going to learn so much, but you MUST apply yourself and study hard. Dr. B is strict but he is an amazing teacher, if you get to a point you are really having trouble he will talk to you.

    Course highlights:

    You learn American history, starting all the way back at when America was first colonized. It's going to seem very overwhelming about mid term when you realize just how much ground you've covered, but it's worth it in the end.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study often, notes are helpful. Annotating the text book as I read was one thing I did then I went back and redid notes or made little doodles and comics to represent historical events.
