CC and Juniors' Colloquium

Herz, Zachary
CC and Juniors' Colloquium

I feel like responding a little bit to the single review that currently stands here. The review worried me, and it almost made me consider switching out of his class, which would have been a mistake! Yes, he lets the students drive much of the discussion, but the things we talk about require nuanced and critical thinking, so at least in my opinion, it wouldn't make much sense for him to just lecture at everyone how we are supposed to read these texts. And the important points are always covered. The discussions we have in class are helpful and memorable, and he pushes students to articulate clearly and defend their points. So yeah, not really an "easy A" type of class if that's what you're looking for. But if you want to be pushed to improve as a student, this is a great class!

hard, but definitely not the worst I've heard of. No pop quizzes or anything weird

Bagger, Matthew
CC and Juniors' Colloquium

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof. Bagger is intelligent and presents well organized and clear analyses of the thinkers we read. His approach is very straight and logical-he is a no-nonsense type of professor. He is not very exciting and can be a little boring. The discussions were not very great but that could be because of the students in the class. He is a pretty nice guy-I used to bump into him in the gym and he always smiled and gave me a good hello.

Workload:

CC-3 3 page papers and a midterm and final. His grading was pretty nice but his comments were not very elaborate. Juniors' Colloquium-no tests-1 10 page paper. (only take this class if you are required to)
