    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She had strong accent which made it hard to understand. Reading my textbook and reviwing my group projects helped on the exams.

    Course highlights:

    Group projects were major grade booster you were able to use your textbook. I learned a lot about social clock and social deviant behavior

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. Read! Read! Also review your group projects.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student looking to fulfill a GEC at WVU. This course IS a service- based learning course, which means you do have to do community service in addition to attending classes. However, it's a real eye- opener and makes you think about things in a way you might not have before.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of SOCA 101 were the guest speakers (one was a police officer, one had been arrested for cocaine trafficking) and the interactive activities of the course. We learned that not everyone sees everything the same way and that it is important to look at other people's views, cultures and backgrounds before jumping to conclusions about things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend every class and do the service. It really isn't hard, and it isn't as time consuming as you might imagine. As long as you do your service and show up to class every time, there's no reason you shouldn't get an "A" for the semester.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it opened my eyes to the world around me. Not only did this class show me the struggles of other peoples, but also how their struggles may be caused and perpetuated by the places in which they live. Furthermore, this course showed me how to address these issues on a level with my family and friends. For example, I am now prepared to converse about these issues on a multitude of levels. Finally, and most importantly, this course showed me how to mitigate these issues, and the actions to take to my the world a better place.

    Course highlights:

    This course brings to light several concepts; however, the most important, I believe, is privilege. The course does not just defined what privilege is but also how is affects the lives of everyone regardless of their acknowledgement. This course shows one how, for example, a person from a poor family has a myriad of huddles that a student from a more affluent family does not. Privilege identifies how this obstacles are easier for some to overcome than others, and answers questions about why the "American Dream" is not attainable by all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important step future students could take would be to read the chapter assigned for class before attending that class. Also, depending on their learning preference, flash cards extremely helpful with keeping the myriad of new terms under control and organized.
