Last Chance to Sign-up for a Cool Class

I was worried that my history and literature courses were going to be boring, but I found out about a secret class that did not show up on my radar.  It is a combo American History/Literature Honors class that was designed for people just like me.  The class is discussion based, so you won’t need a standard textbook. You'll read novels.  Many of the fall classes are already full, yet this one still has openings.  Is it harder?  Not really, but it does require critical thinking, reading, writing, and dialogue with others.  There are only two days left to register for this two hour class that counts for (6) credits.  You heard me right; this satisfies both a history and an English requirement. 
If you ask the instructors at Vol State who they personally recommend as teachers, most include both Dr. Bob Ruff and Associate Professor Nancy Blomgren at the top of their list.  For years this dynamic duo has inspired students with this unique class, provoking students to think outside the box and understand the elements that have shaped our nation.  You may not be able to register online, so if you are interested please contact your advisor immediately or email one of the instructors listed above.
The class meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00 am to 10:00 am in a special room setup in the Thigpen Library.

I encourage all students to take this class. You will learn far more than what you expect, and the things you learn will help you tremendously in other classes. The combo class has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my entire education and I'm sure it will be the same for you. Sign up for the class, do the work, and reap the benefits :)
