    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was such an interesting take on what we learned in high school, It was an easy transition as one of the first classes we take as college students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were getting to work in groups because that gave you the ability to know your peers, I learned how to cite my work correctly because we did not learn that in high school.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read any material given to you even if it may seem unnecessary because there is a reason behind it. Don't be afraid to ask questions because it might be difficult to understand some of the concepts that the teacher or texts may describe and it's too much of an interesting subject to not enjoy it thoroughly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it wasn't exactly easy but my professor definitely pushed me to my full potential. I became a much better writer and leaned how to use proper citation with using the Purdue owl.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was when Mr. Nicholson let us chose whatever topic we wanted for our end of the year freshman seminar presentation. The project wasn't hard at all and you were able to be as free as you wanted to in this final. Overall what I learned from this course was patients, how to use my resources provided to me through the school, and how to enhance my writing skills.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though this course was pretty tough, Mr. Nicholson was extremely helpful and understanding. I've went to 3 different schools and never in my life have I had a professor who actually catered to your needs just to make sure you succeed. On top of that Mr. Nicholson was a student at the time as well so for him to actually put his work on hold to make sure you passed his class was amazing to me, I would definitely take this course over again if I could have Mr. Nicholson as my Professor again.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class and it's sister course prepared me for any and all writing I have come across and will continue to encounter during my college career and even in general life. I highly recommend taking this course as a basic writing element for anyone looking to improve their writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    By the end of the semester of taking this course, I learned how to better organize my writing, and how to manipulate diction in order to make my writing more professional. Whereas before this course my writing was always inadequate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Simply do the work, do the exercises, do the writing. The course is not easy nor is it slow paced, but its definitely worth the effort and time put into it. My writing skills have improved significantly after having taken this course.
