    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a general education requirement, however I would recommend taking it with Professor Marafino. As a professor he was clear about what he expected from his students, and he was very organized with his lesson plans. The readings were easy enough, and they always had some element that he wanted us to use to incorporate into our own work, which definitely helped in developing our own essays.

    Course highlights:

    I was always told that I was a pretty good writer in high school, but I genuinely feel like this course took my writing skills to the next level. Even though it is only a general education class, it will really help to develop the skills that you need to write papers in other classes. Professor Marafino had us write a research paper toward the end of the semester, and I found myself using the skills that he had taught me to write another paper for a different class. If you are looking to try and develop your skills for writing college level papers before you need to write them for other classes, make sure you take GWRTC with Professor Marafino!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of office hours, because they really do help. Sometimes peer review just isn’t enough, so make sure that you’re getting feedback from the very person assigning you your papers. Truthfully, there isn’t much to study, but make sure that you do the readings and read through them thoroughly, because we always had quizzes at the start of class to make sure that we read. As long as you really ask for help when you need it and make sure you understand what is expected, you should be fine!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was challenging. I started out rough but with the help of my professor during office hours, I ended the class with an A! Moral of the story: GO TO YOUR PROFESSORS OFFICE HOURS IF YOU AREN'T RECEIVING THE GRADE YOU WANT!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was writing my personal narrative. I learned to take advantage of the writing center on campus in order to do better on your writing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put in the effort to do well! If you work hard and don't procrastinate, you'll be fine!
