Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The information is incredibly informative and interesting. The class provided a deeper understanding as to what sociologists do and how families interact with one another. We went from adoption to stepfamilies to ageing people in families. I particularly loved how they incorporated the perspective of minority groups and openly admitted that a lot of research has been done mostly on Whtie, middle-class America. It is truly an inspiring course, because now I've decided to minor in Sociology
The highlight was doing an essay on my own family in 2,500 words. It was relatively short, but I got to learn more about the people I've been around for 20+ years. We were tasked with researching an aspect of family and interview family members on it. I chose to talk about how colonization/westernization has affected my family and it was amazing to research and discuss with family.

Advice for students:
Stay on top of deadlines. Always have reminders. A summer course means deadlines sneak up on you. Don't make the mistake of waiting til last minute. If you can, do everything at the start of the week to give yourself more time for the rest of the week to have fun.
