Quarter: Winter 2023
Grade: A
April 18, 2023

As one of the few nonmajors in the class, I can say it was overall worth it. I took this class as one of my last few GEs and it was a pretty good one to take. Perhaps because I have taken classes where colonialism was the main topic prior I found much of the information pretty engaging and easy to follow. I stopped doing the readings completely after week four, but perhaps I would have had an easier time finishing my final essay and engaging in class conversation if I had continued them.

Attendance is required and 30 percent of your grade but you get up to five absences (barring if you have COVID) without needing any sort of excuse without it affecting your grade. We had three writing assignments, two letters, and one final essay. We worked up to our final essay throughout the class which was really helpful in alleviating a bit of the stress during finals week (I still barely slept to finish my essay in time tho lol).

There wasn't any homework in the traditional sense apart from the readings which we would pick apart in class. One thing I really liked was how the class had conversations that would sometimes go past the readings and really delve into one's own experience-- which was nice for me to step away from the STEM world a bit.

Overall, if you take this class the only thing that's really a bit annoying is the college rule, but tbh if you hit your essay with the CTRL+F at the end you should be able to catch all of the errors. Would recommend!

I enjoyed this class, though people who meet him either love or hate his teaching style. He's a friendly and helpful professor if you attend his office hours. His teaching style prepares you for academic writing and makes every other paper after his class seem easy work.

He makes all the class materials free and accessible to students, which is very nice.
