    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Surges deeply cares about her students and it's evident through her teaching style. She doesn't make one feel unintelligent or feel like they're a burden when they asks questions.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the theme of this course which was Social Media. It opened my eyes up to how obsessed and dependent we've become on it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't use your phones because she hates that, and follow her directions to the T.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was focused on "nerd culture" as a theme for teaching writing skills. Each English 102 course has a theme to engage the students in the learning process. Ms. Spires inspired the students with shared experiences and similar tastes in movies, books, and games. Her style made the class enjoyable to attend.

    Course highlights:

    Because the focus included gaming, comic books, and movies I was interested in our discussions and learn writing techniques. I was engaged in the topic and that made learning easier. I believe it improved my writing abilities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Choose the 102 course with a topic that appeals to you. Do not just pick it based on a time slot.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course with this specific professor because I think Professor Surges is extremely good at her job. She is kind, patient, and makes the material in English 102 very easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the essays we wrote. I felt as though I learned a lot when it comes to my writing and I was able to see what pieces of my writings needed fixing and what I did well when it came to writing essays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give students considering this course is to simply make sure they do not procrastinate. That is for any class in college, you want to make sure you complete assignments when they're due and not try and do it at the last minute.
