Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
This is one of the most comprehensive Humanities courses I have ever had the pleasure of taking. The instructor, Mr. Kinsella, is a wealth of information about the subject matter and a skilled professor. Take any class he teaches!
From the Ancient Etruscans to The Epic of Gilgamesh, all of the ancient knowledge you didn't realize was still available is illuminated in this course! For me, the most moving aspect of The Epic of Gilgamesh is the change that he goes through, from a cocky, brash youth to a sad, friendless king, who in the end, upon looking at the city his countrymen have so greatly improved, says not, "Look what I have built," but "Look what WE have built."

Advice for students:
Attend every class. Read all assignments. Pay careful attention to the lectures and take notes. Almost all of the test questions come from the lectures. Mr. Kinsella has a lot of wisdom to impart. Be respectful. He is exceedingly kind, but does not suffer fools gladly. Learn from this great man!
