Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course will forever be one that stands out to me from my undergrad years. Professor Verdon was one of the most intelligent and articulate instructors I ever had, but he had a way of letting the student guide themselves in many ways.
I learned the foundations of the art of persuasion and the ways in which rhetoric are intertwined into our every day lives. Things that I had not yet considered were realized in this course, and it was the first memory I have that piqued my interest in speech writing.

Advice for students:
Be thorough, creative, and think out of the box. Verdon appreciates students who take everything they can for a class they are paying to be a part of. Don't just do enough work to slide by, do everything you can to make yourself stand out and build a relationship with this professor.
