    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a prerequisite class that must be taken. The professor is one of the best teachers/professors I have ever had. He is hilarious and can get distracted with random subjects at times, but he is very good a relaying the information he wants you to know. He is a tough grader and doesn't hand out A's easily(although thanks to him I always received A's on my paper); however, he is very clear when telling you what he wants from your papers and is willing to stay after class to provide assistance or provide possible revisions to your paper.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from this course, thanks to the teacher specifically. I learned how to write a summary paper, how to write a response paper to a story or article, and I learned how to properly write a research paper with the proper MLA citations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the class, you miss a lot of critical information whenever you miss class. Read the material before class. Have the professor look at your papers during office hours or after class before the due date, he will help you and the grade on your paper will significantly increase.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend it because this course was very interesting and I learned a lot. I definitely liked it a whole lot better than high school English. This class was very creative and involved deeper thinking, and it even changed my outlook on some things just from learning more about those things.

    Course highlights:

    This class taught college composition with a new way of writing. The way I had to write essays was actually similar in some ways to journalism. I would have to write essays on topics that had a great impact on the world in some way. Of course, while there were still some requirements to how the essays had to be written, it also allowed a lot of room for creativity in how the words were to be delivered and could even include an aspect of your personality to the writing. It didn't all have to be formal and boring like a lot of English essays are.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be a good listener and know how to take good notes. Students who aren't willing to put in some kind of effort won't get very far in this class.
