Pretty easy, overall.
This is where it begins. No matter what major or course of study you select you are going to need to communicate your thoughts in writing. You are no longer handing in three paragraph book reports. You have to learn how to research and develop a position of your own without stealing someone else 's work. How do you do that? That's what you will learn in English 101.
Did you ever have a moment where you imagined yourself in some kind of story? Maybe on the bus or when you were alone with your thoughts? This is where you get the chance to put that story together. Even if you don't have aspirations to be a writer this is a great way to practice putting your imagination to work. Think of being able to explore and stretch your mind in a safe encouraging environment. You might like it.

Advice for students:
Start by letting go of the person you were in high school. You don't have to become someone else but how are you going to grow unless you try different approaches to challenges. English 101 gives you the opportunity to express yourself in ways you have always wanted to but didn't or couldn't depending on your situation. Start to become the person you've always wanted to be.
