Not too easy. Not too difficult.
What really makes a class is a good professor. Professor Dorsty made the class interesting where I normally wouldn't have been interested in the subject. He opened my eyes to why learning about the Beat generation and Jack Kerouac was important and how writing could be transformational and meaningful to society.
Besides the needed information, it was the first time a professor was able to show me how English could impact the world. I struggled with being an English major because I wanted to study something that would translate into making the world better. He showed me that writers could change people's way of thinking and influence change. I changed my major back to English after his class.
