    | 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.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an average class. The professor is super outgoing and willing to talk. The professor truly just wants you to do the best you can.

    Course highlights:

    We've learned about social literacy, dystopias and visual literacy. This course really gets you thinking about what you already know and as well as what you should know. When writing essays, there is no format to follow, you just have to be sure it flows and makes sense.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I wish i knew more about religion before entering an english class. I'm not well educated in religions and that topic seems to always come up in english classes. Be willing to volunteer and state your opinions in class.
