    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was absolutely amazing, she always explained things so that everyone would understand. She was always willing to answer questions and was always available for her office hours. Also she's really personable and I find that learning from someone like that is really a hit or miss. Because they might be really funny but stay from the topic too much or spend unnecessary time on their personal life. Prof. Lawson wasn't like that, she shared just enough about herself to make herself likable while still giving an excellent and thorough lesson.

    Course highlights:

    The most memorable part of the course was when we studied poetry specifically war themed poetry. In high school we had briefly studied this and it was absolutely my favorite subject, so when we got to delve even deeper into the subject I felt very prepared and willing to contribute to the class discussions. I learned how to cite things properly and was able to refine my active reading skills. Things that I really did need help with going into the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that you always have to do the reading. I can't stress this enough. Also don't be afraid to ask questions, even if they seem like the answer might be really obvious.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because its an amazing course to learn more about creative writing and understanding to read poetry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, Read, Read! Never stay behind your reading and writing and always have a full notebook with well written notes of the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Orozco's assignments and grading allowed for subjective opinions about advanced reading material and were graded on an objective analysis, ensuring that every student could express individual thoughts while also maintaining a solid argument in their papers.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there could be many perspectives based on the same reading material and that each perspective can be defended through rationale and objectivity instead of insulting or demeaning opposing perspectives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the professor and only provide arguments you can back up with evidence based on the reading.
