    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this course because it teaches college freshmen how to appropriately write for their college classes by making a balance of factual information and personal opinion that really makes an essay worth reading.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to feel comfortable writing with my own opinion as well as integrate the factual information that some of my essays required. My professor helped me with constructive feedback and open discussions in which we could all share our thoughts on topics such as thesis writing and analysis. I learned that it's better to write in our own specific styles rather than the standard testing structure that high school has pounded into our heads.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class knowing that the five-paragraph structure of high school is long gone and unnecessary in this class. It will help you begin to develop general college writing, so your major professors will have a foundation with which to better develop more specific types of writing based on the majors.
