    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because Professor Savage covered so many things about Winston Churchill that are not commonly known that are not related to his being Prime Minister of England during World War II.

    Course highlights:

    You found out that Churchill almost didn't make it into military school. His mother was American. In 1899 while serving a dual role as military correspondent and officer, he escaped from a prison camp after being captured in South Africa. In World War I, he lost is admiralty post position because of an attack that he organized that failed. Many of his most famous speeches that he made came within months of each other. He organized a massive World War I attack that failed spectacularly. Churchill popularized the term “iron curtain.” and was actually voted out of office at one point prior to the end of World War II. He was an award winning novelist receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature for “his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.”

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't skip class. Ask lots of questions and be involved with class discussions and keep up with the readings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking this course because of teachers ability to teach this course and his underlying lessons he taught us throughout the semester. Anybody who enjoys taking on very difficult challenges and wants to truly understand the concepts of ideas that seem impossible will enjoy the coursework and will hopefully take something away from this course that will improve their life skills.

    Course highlights:

    The most bizarre and craziest paradoxes you can think are more than likely in this course and professor Kung does an excellent job of making sure we throughly understand each one. The most important lessons however was not the math or paradoxes he taught us, but rather the insight to basic life skills that we can improve and takes each idea down to its basic concept. I won't describe some of the life lessons we learned because they do sound rather corny, but I guarantee that after leaving this course you will emerge with a different view of the world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class requires work that includes a lot of critical thinking so don't come into this class expecting to ease on through. This class WILL challenge you and professor Kung does an excellent job go making sure of this.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was taught with eloquence and thought that stimulated conversation about issues both past and present. Not only this, but the professor was phenomenal and had a complete and thorough knowledge of the material that he taught.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely learning about the Dadaist Art Collective. This material is strange, but it is also highly entertaining and relatable. It is immensely weird nonetheless and with the right class can bring all of you together

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of all the writing assignments and actually, do the readings. They are quite fascinating and the information is needed for in class discussions.
