    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of things about the city of Chicago and also how to convey ideas.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read the articles that are given for homework every night and take notes.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The manner in which she grades your scholarly essays is incredibly difficult.

    Course highlights:

    Despite her difficult grading, I learned where the Writing Center was on campus during my Freshman year.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in to her office hours in order to find out what it is that she wants to see in your paper. Even then, do a double-check with the Writing Center to make sure your writing is solid.
