Favorite class and why: I thoroughly enjoyed my Writing 200 course with Michael Burns. The reason why I enjoyed this course is because Professor Burns made this class very much relatable and low stress. He cared about each and every one of his students and wanted to see their perspective on the world. I am not always a big fan of writing essays, but I did not mind writing for Professor burns because I knew there was always a purpose to the writing to provide us with a different perspective on life.
