    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone, both male and female! When I first enrolled into the class, many told me that it sounds like a "feminist" class (mind you these were people who had not even taken the class). However, for someone who adores multicultural perspectives and ethnicities, I was unbothered by the name. Boy, was I glad that I stayed. We touched on just about every type of women from all walks of life; they're struggles within America and how they cope with the racial barriers that they have told to stay within. A lot of the readings were from the book Race, Class and Gender (an excellent book by the way) and web articles from women who have perspectives and experiences pertaining to the struggles of being a woman in America.

    Course highlights:

    We learned so much! But some of the highlights of this course were learning about the stereotypes placed on women of color and how racial barriers have been placed that are specific to particular colors. We looked at all women of color and negative perceptions of them in the media, however, the most prominent to me was the unit on Black women. We discussed the color barriers and stereotypes placed on Black women and the daily struggles that they go through because of that. As a young Black woman, I was able to identify some of these stereotypes and relate to those struggles; ones that perceive Black women as the "weaker link" in all mediums. I learned, however, that it wasn't just Black women who have stereotypes and racial barriers over their heads. A discussed topic that actually ties all women of color together in terms of a sense of culture being blindly stripped is Cultural Appropriation, however, you would be reading this all day.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Doing well in this course requires that you do the readings (the readings are really good by the way) and just PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS. Discussions get really deep and you do not want to miss them! Not only will you do well on exams, but you'll learn so much!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A must take for any college student entering a job in the social/societal field. This course gives you an overarching context into the systems of oppression that separate society.

    Course highlights:

    The in class discussions and lectures are phenomenal. Through the combination of the professors academic knowledge of patriarchal history and you and your classmates life experiences, you really gain a fuller understanding of the world around you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please please please do all the readings.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I feel that there is too much emphasis on fraternities and sororities. Even in the campus ministry group that I was attending for a while, people in the Greek system got special opportunities and attention that non-Greek students were not offered.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoy attending those when money permits. It is not a bad school, especially if you are looking to join a fraternity or sorority. But either way, the teachers here are all top-notch and extremely accommodating. Even if I don't find many non-Greek friends, at least I am getting a solid education.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are so many wonderful campus organizations to get involved in and I, personally, have made some terrific friends this way. And the music scene here is pretty happening, also. There are always little shows going on downtown and sometimes.
