    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a jaw-dropper. It's a mind-opener, a questioner, and a hub for SO MUCH INFORMATION. Dr. Margaritis supplies you with some of the best literary works in history, beautiful random facts during the medieval and renaissance eras, questions that are deeper than you originally believed, and sends you off with a broader mind and an intuition about 'what the author was talking about', and 'what this character's intentions are'. Just....incredible.

    Course highlights:

    Reading, discussing, and analyzing Robbe-Grillet's "Jealousy" was probably the most educational literary experience I have ever had the privilege of being smack dab in the middle of. The power of an author is often undermined, and this class's approach to trying to get in the middle of that man's mind proved impossible, albeit a struggle and failure I would want to live through over and over again other literary works. Read that book.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Just read the chapters, and CONTRIBUTE TO THE DISCUSSION. But remember to keep it light in the classroom. Margaritis isn't a hard-a**. He's just incredibly intelligentand soft-spoken. It's fun to throw around a few educationally inspired jokes. Note, *educationally*. Enjoy the difficulty, most of all. There aren't a lot of classes like it, and there aren't a lot of professors like him.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Wow. What an incredible professor, incredible classmates and incredible coursework. So far, in Honors 104 I have expanded my mind in 16,725 ways ALREADY! And we're not even halfway done! This class, and Dr. Margaritis, is challenging, inspiring and incomparable to any other class ever. Want to feel your jaw drop to the floor in awe every day? Take this class. Now. Go.

    Course highlights:

    Uh. Everything. Lectures in class are all discussion and drooling over Margaritis lavishly and eloquently reciting Italian poetry, bringing up Medieval and Renaissance historical events like cake, and broadening your horizons. The reading choices were spot-on: novel to students, interesting, and all very different from eachother.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    He's tough, but in the best way possible. Just be ready to add insight, whatever it may be. Make connections, ask questions. Don't just read the book and expect to do well. Its good for your head and others' to lend ideas to the class!
