    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great class, great discussion but a lot can learn into a bunch of racist bigotry from students and the TA's didn't always seem to agree on how to grade the essays.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions were fun and I learned a lot about Israel and the meaning of justice and diversity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk to the TA's. All of them even though they say only talk to one. They each grade differently and can't seem to agree on what an A paper looks like compared to a B or C.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Billy Close is brilliant! He provides a space for diverse students to talk about the criminal justice system. Here we all had the opportunity to touch on topics that we would have otherwise been uncomfortable talking about such as racism and injustice in the community.

    Course highlights:

    This course really makes you open your eyes and see some of the problems within the system that I may have not known existed. For example I learned about the concept of the power to define. The power to define is basically what it says. Those who have power can make meaning of certain situations and place labels on them. The term "crime" is a label. I also learned about the 3 denials of oppression, blaming the victim being one of them. I also learned about trans-generational oppression and how the events in the past, impacts the present and ultimately the future generations in terms of dealing with diversity and justice.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books assigned. For the most part the assigned work is just your reflections on the concepts learned and how these concepts have been portrayed in the readings. If you are interested in the criminal justice system then the conversations will spark your interest. Have an open mind. Go to the writing tutors to make sure your papers are formatted correctly and so that they can catch any grammatical errors that you may have missed. This class is fairly easy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows students to discover diversity through different ethnicities. The topics we discussed were very interesting. We read and analyzed Things Fall Apart, Second Person Singular, and Do the Right Thing.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned the most from watching Do the RIght Thing by Spike Lee. It helped me view the concept of "right" or "wrong" in a different manner.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is extremely important to actually read the books and pay attention.
