    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Steven was an amazing teacher in that he created an environment where there were no lines separating who the teacher was vs who the student was. He told the students to address him by his first name, igniting the spark of comfortableness that makes a student learn better.

    Course highlights:

    How we all pitched in our perspectives of a philosophy and he never shoved his opinion into our minds, we just kept debating over topics until we came to our own personal conclusion as to how we view the world and how we perceive ourselves and others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually read the book and come to class with an interesting debate to bring up.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course in itself I found very interesting and intense, but what changed my views towards life was not the content but the professor who presented the content. He applies these concepts to real every day life in a way I have never thought of before. Serious food for thought.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained from this course was not only excellent critical thinking skills, but the importance of finding yourself, loving yourself and finding meaning to your life on your own terms. You may be influenced on how to live your life, but essentially it is up to you to decide how you want to live.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enter this course with an open mind and do not fall behind on the readings and assignments. He gives excellent lectures. Take thorough notes since most of his written exams are based on the notes you take in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Do you know what the Truth is? If you said yes you're wrong. In Philosophy you don't learn what the Truth is but it opens your eyes to the small truths around you that lead you to wonder what the big Truth is about life. Philosophy makes you question everything and it makes you think about things you would never even think twice about before. Do we have a purpose in life? Is there such a thing as good and bad? Even though I wasn't the best student in my class, I'm sure glad that I took the course and had the most amazing professor teach it to me.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a completely new perspective after taking Philosophy. I feel like I entered another dimension and I had to forget everything I know so I could try to understand what's around me. You begin to question everything around you and wonder what is the purpose of things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work on your argument!!! I didn't ace my papers because I provided my professor a report. Pick a side, answer the prompt and have a strong argument to back up your side. If you need help go the the professor's office hours!! She is always willing to hep and will break it down so you understand it more. This is the truth!!
