This class was tough.
This course was a great introductory level course on Sociology. Prior to this class, I had no background knowledge on the subjects that we went over in class. This class held around 30 people. The other people that enrolled in this class were not high school students, in fact most of them were college students, or graduates. The class was discussion based, so it was vital to participate in the class, and make your voice heard about the issues brought up in class.
Some of my highlights from the class were definitely watching my writing skills improve through Professor Sun's constructive criticism. Entering this class I had never written at a college level. My first essay grade in the class was failing, but by the end I was able to receive constant A-s on my papers. Besides learning how to write in a more polished manner, I learned a lot about the patterns of human behavior and studied how to prevent future behavior from occurring.

Advice for students:
I would say to anyone wanting to go into this class to be prepared to put in the work. This was a shock coming from regular high school level classes, but well worth it. There is an average of 2 books to read per week, and these books range from 300-500 pages. There is also one essay due every Monday in class. This essay is not specified in length, but a good essay usually runs about 6-8 pages of thought-provoking analysis of the material.
