    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend English composition because it is the firm foundation in basic writing. Basic writing is a director link to communication which is essential in order to learn, grow, and converse.

    Course highlights:

    From this class I learned how to be a better writer. I learned proper grammar and how to compose my writings in a way that made sense and captured the reader.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise someone to take this class because it is important to be able to write and be grammatically correct. Writing is a form of expression and is needed in all aspects of life.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class I was encouraged to find my own creativity and voice as a writer, and for the first time I felt that I was writing for myself rather than simply writing to receive a passing grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it is okay to not understand things. As a writer, one has the gift of discussing and presenting any idea! I never had experienced that freedom until taking this course

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Forget what you've learned about English thus far, live in the moment of this class and listen. Apply yourself, find topics to write about that challenge your mind and excite you. If you do that, you will succeed.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Guelcher was an phenomenal professor. Amazing feedback, great humor, progressive writing style, really cares, and wants to get the best writing out of you that he can. His writing topics help you to find out who you are and get you excited for your future, or at least thinking about it in the long term. Would highly recommend and would take him again if I was an English Major.

    Course highlights:

    The writing and editing process was really fun for me. He had check-ins with each paper so he could see the work that we were doing. His topics helped me to better understand myself, from where I came from and how my writing style developed to where I plan to be going and how to get there. It was a very informative class and his patience and humor were definitely helpful to every one.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell anyone coming in to enjoy the process and heed to the requirements for each paper. It isn't hard to do, but you do have to be ready to look deeper into who you are as a writer to really get what you need out of the class. I think that as long as you ask questions and take advantage of office hours you will do just fine.
