    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Eric Wardell is the absolute best teacher to have for Freshman Composition. I thought I would really struggle going into the course because I heard there would be a lot of essays and presentation, but he made the course super easy to understand how to write essays and preparing for presentations. If you don't take the class, definitely go meet him because he will help with anything you have questions or concerns about.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about writing the correct form of essays. Also, I gained so much confidence when doing presentations and I got to meet really great people in the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait to write essays the day before they are due. Also, ready the required book because lots of the quiz questions are from the reading.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dan was very engaging and invested in each of the students' lives. He wanted to personally get to know you because he was genuinely nice. His teaching methods were clear and concise, and he gave you plenty of time and preparation for each major essay assigned.

    Course highlights:

    He taught me how correctly cite a source and what kind of citing method to use for depending on certain factors. He also corrected common grammar mistakes and made them understandable to everyone in the class. He also had each of us perform a TED talk about the essay topic we chose. It was very fun to watch and learn from each of them!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare for the essays weeks before it is due; you'll be able to have very credible sources and a strong argument to work with. You're success in this class is almost directly tied to your success in these essays (three in total).

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Would recommend because the professor and class was so welcoming. Dan Darling was an amazing professor, he knows how to connect with his students. You can tell he enjoys teaching.

    Course highlights:

    My writing improved so much, I proof read my friend's papers all the time! The professor teaches you stuff worth learning, and you never feel weird for asking a question for something you don't understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need to take an English course, he is a great professor to do that with! You'll open up and find your inner "writer" without a doubt. Do the essays on time, and you'll be fine.
