    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate! Share your opinions even when they may seem strange or different from everyone else's. That's how you learn.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I signed up for the Writing the Essay class thinking I was going to be writing on silent filmmaking. The week of orientation I realized the class was actually "Love, Representation, & The Digital Era". I almost dropped it. It was after sitting down and talking with the class and teacher that I realized I loved it.

    Course highlights:

    The socratic style of discussion is what I enjoy most. There is a constant give and take between teacher and student and students together. The readings are extremely engaging and are thoroughly broken down the next class if anyone has any questions. The class is fun when it comes down to it. It feels like I'm talking to one of my best friends whenever I engage in the class discussions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in with an open mind. No one is there to judge you. Just go for it and say what you believe and amazing discussions will be a result of that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My class is so in-depth! There is a copious amount of reading involved but it is really worth it because you learn so much and the things we are learning in class is so much fun!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights is talking about women of color feminism because that is what I am passionate about and seeing other people feel as passionate as me about women of color feminism makes me feel so happy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ READ READ, Yes they do give you copious amount of reading but it really helps you understand the material and follow what you are learning in class it is tedious but it is so worth it in the end
