    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    LOTS of reading, especially in printouts. Be prepared to pay an extra $20-40 in printing outside of the normal book costs.

    Course highlights:

    We took a trip to Monticello, which was very fun and informative.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot and to print a lot... of you don't bring that day's handout to class it counts as a tardy.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this class. Professor Cox has such a love and enthusiasm for this course and it makes learning all of this so much fun. I am so glad that I took this class. The things you learn about our history and the way you learn to think about our history is amazing. I would highly recommend this class.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts of this course for me were the things that I learned about our Founding Fathers and how the Constitution and Declaration of Independence came into being. I loved the field trip to Monticello, home of Tomas Jefferson, and being able to see what type of scholar he was. The daily quizzes on modern events going on around us really helped me to connect and follow up with the world around me. It also made me reconnect with the issues in the world around me and how I could get involved and contribute to society.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to do all of the reading assigned. I know that at times it can be a lot but it will benefit you in the long run. In addition to that it would be wise to keep up on current events. There are a lot of extra credit points that can be earned just by knowing the political, social, and everyday issues going on around you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is passionate about the course and you learn SO much! U.S. History has always been one of my favorite subjects and to dive so much deeper into it was wonderful!

    Course highlights:

    We took a trip to Monticello (Thomas Jefferson's home) and got to learn more about him as a founding father and one of the more successful men in early America. We also had opportunities to receive lectures from various political figures throughout the semester that enlightened us into the processes that take place to keep our country running!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen and take notes during class periods. STUDY YOUR NOTES! Be willing to ask Professor Cox questions. Stop by during office hours, email him, stay after class etc...
