Closed Classes

Here is a discussion on College Confidential about how to get in to closed classes, i.e., classes which are already full. Question: How many classes are currently full and which ones are they? It would be great to see that information and discuss it. I hope that there aren’t too many full classes, that the faculty does a good job of adjusting their offerings to student demand. Do they?

Probably an art class, ARTS 100, something similar, that will be overbooked. It is THE gateway course to the department, along with ARTH 101, and it is consistently, totally oversubscribed. Or whatever you want to say.

… and some tutorial or other.

Yep, ARTS 100 it is. Otherwise, the students I’ve heard about (all first years, though) seem to be getting what they want so far.

Professor McAllister’s poli sci classes are often oversubscribed, as are Professor Gerrard’s and Professor Mladenovic’s 100-level philosophy classes.

Professor Cruz’s classes, at all levels, are usually oversubscribed. I think he had to boot me from two classes (102 and the Consciousness tutorial) before I finally had him in the Senior Seminar, which turned out to be a great class.

I am almost certain the student who initiated the College Confidential thread was referring to my class, PSCI 102 “Religion and Capitalism” (same first name of student, same question with same phrasing in email and CC posting). The course is capped at 16 and enrolled 32 before I trimmed the roster. The chances of Jimmy getting in are, unfortunately, rather slim.

It is hard to believe that a Williams Associate Professor would voluntarily enter this swamp of misinformation, disinformation, downright lies, general foolishness and insults. Caveat emptor!

Poor little Jimmy, he will not be able to hear the good ole’ willy professor speak about professional pick pockets and capitalismo. Yes, buyer beware!

I assume that Jimmy can sit and listen to the “willy” Professor Paul all he wants. He just can’t get credit for it unless he becomes quite more innovative than his posts indicate is in his nature.

Now, on pickpocket aesthetics and the sprite of capitalism….

What is it with the anonymous commentators lately? They seem so… hateful towards all that is Williams. Almost like they (or s/he?) are just here to piss of Williams folks…

Now who would have a vendetta against Ephblog? Maybe Rob Schvern can answer that question?

To paraphrase John Dean, anonymity is a cancer on this blog.
