    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Loebenberg really cares about her students and loves to lighten the mood so everyone is interested in the subject matter. The readings are abundant and sometimes tedious to read at best, but the seminars make it more exciting. Some of her analyses are recycled from other sources, but for the most part Loebenberg offers stances no one may notice at all. The essays are very ambiguous, so what she's asking for may not be clear.

    Course highlights:

    Being in class. It was always fun to attend, even if I didn't read what we were discussing. There is a real friendly atmosphere in the class, and everyone is encouraged to voice their opinions (especially with participation points on the line).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    ASK QUESTIONS. The essay prompts are confusing to understand, so it is best to ask Dr. Loebenberg herself--not the TAs, as even they don't know what she means at times--how to interpret the prompt at hand.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. McAdams is a gem to the Barrett Honors college. At the beginning of the semester, I was nowhere as great of a writer as I am now. She cares about her students, and that is shown through her teaching and also her personality. Taking her class was one of my best decisions and I am happily taking her again next semester.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read ancient and difficult texts that I'd never thought I'd be able to tackle before. I also learned how to rationalize my thoughts and organize my ideas more clearly.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always show up for class. You're allowed to miss twice, but it's best if you don't. Always complete your assigned reading, you'll look like a fool in the classroom if you don't and it will be highly embarrassing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Mac was a fantastic professor who really connected with students and was able to be human with us in a way that many professors aren't. The course material was artfully selected and the way the course was taught allowed me to hone my critical thinking and speaking skills without fear of looking foolish that I might have in a larger classroom.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were the hip hop day and the short story days, as well as the project days, of course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work and read every article, story, and book thoroughly. Skimming is not good enough here.
