Yujhan Claros

I wrote the review below. But I also want to clear up that he does really care about his students and is very passionate about the texts. The reason that it is easy to get good grades is because he cares more about education than the exams/passage IDs.

Yujhan is the best! He CARES SO MUCH about everyone learning in class. Everyone pretty much got an A because Yujhan is super invested in making sure we all do well and get credit for our work. He was kinda frazzled in a lot of classes, but like... it was relatable. With Yujhan, you know you're gonna do well, so it's really about how much YOU want to get out of your Columbia Core experience. I'm really thankful I had Yujhan my first year. Go to office hours!!! One of my best memories of Columbia is sitting with Yujhan and talking about books and movies (not from Lit Hum but just in my own interest). He knows so much and has such interesting perspectives that I would definitely recommend taking the time to get to know him / his brain while you have the chance.

Interesting.... I honestly got really bored in the class but I was lucky because he was the best for grading. Never did any of the readings. Never participated in class. Copied all my essays from Sparknotes. Got an A+ We literally had self-graded participation. He said that he was worried about anyone who got an A-. So pretty much everyone got As.
