My favorite course thus far, and why
229 Words
Having just finished my sophomore year of college I have taken a fair few courses so far, but my favorite has definitely got to be a class called Bibliomania. As an English major I've found that scheduling is tough because many of the classes that I want to take are either full by the time I have gotten to register or they conflict with my other class times.
