HONR 100
Honors Colloquium
3***
Pros: Easy class. You don't actually see Dorland after the first few weeks just your TA's. Easy. Class is cool because it's just talking to each other or presentation. You might make friends, you might remember your classmates names or whatever which is cool since most likely all of them live in your building (only 1 person in our class didn't).
Cons: Dorland kind of led us astray with this one paper we have to do. He said he would give out the assignment and there would basically be like dozens of chances to do it. He assigned the first paper before midterms so I was like, okay, I'm just gonna skip this one and do the next one. The people who did their papers didn't get a grade for a month and the next one wasn't assigned until 3 days before Thanksgiving. I did that one and it's finals week and I still haven't gotten a grade. So I'm a little worried but it is what it is. I'll be mad if I get anything other than an A in the class though.
Free ice cream is awesome.

HONR 100
Honors Colloquium
5*****
Pros: Great guy, good professor.
Cons: You don't really see much of him, as this class breaks up into smaller sections and is taught almost entirely by the TAs.
1 journal per week on various topics. He assigns 3 papers throughout the semester, but they're optional to the extent that if you like the grade you get on the first one, you don't have to do any more. This class is mostly taught by the TAs, so don't expect a whole lot of face time with Dr. Dorland.

Pros: Only one paper. HONR100 is the easiest class ever. Follow MLA and you'll get full credit on the paper. Class ends before the end of October = AWESOME.
Cons: Going to the hour long class is totally pointless.
