This class was tough.
I would recommend this course if you love history, philosophy, theology, and English because it is all of those rolled into one class. The discussions we have elevate my thinking and cause me to be very inquisitive about life. I have learned so much about the nature of religion and mythology and even the meaning of life. Most class days I walk out not being able to comprehend what I just discussed but loving that confusion.
The highlight of this course was after reading Dante's inferno, creating my own personal hell. It was a group project/paper and out hell was about college rejection. Each level had different ways people were rejected from college and their different punishments. As our narrator and his guide, Master Admissions officer, descended deeper into college rejection the punishments got worse. This project was extremely fun and very creative.

Advice for students:
Always do the reading. While it may be long and you might not understand all of it, it will help you in class discussions. Also always participate because you do not want to miss out on the discussions, they are mind blowing.
