    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sullivan is a great professor. Her class is spent explaining why the readings are important and the context that surrounds them. Only two tests, which were fairly involved but if you keep up with the readings (usually short) you will do well.

    Course highlights:

    Her class is spent explaining why the readings are important and the context that surrounds them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Daily 5 question quizzes on assigned readings but super easy and she only counts the 10 highest quiz grades. Class discussions were interesting, easy A if you're not lazy.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English. Most all students claim they know the language, feeling very confident of themselves they slack off in English Class because "they know the language already". I personally was one of those people, but I soon discovered its very difficult to right a excellent essay. A simple mind set of just writing down stuff won't get you anywhere. Composition 1 is the class that will help you not only write good essays but builld a much better way of communication.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights that I recall is on the topic of rhetorical analysis. Pathos,Logos,and Ethos, its amazing how these basic categories can provide a powerful message or simply convince you to buy something you don't need. I learn how to identify an audience and provide an essay that would not go off topic.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! Reading gives you a better visual on how a good piece of writing should look like. It also enhances your vocabulary

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    read,listen,go to class, and don't turn in late work.
