I enjoyed this class. The professor was relaxed and the coursework was manageable. As long as you stayed up to date on readings (even skimming) and knew the study guide it was easy to succeed in the class.

The course was very fun. The professor is very passionate about the work he does. The only homework assignments we had for the class were readings. However, the readings could be a lot at certain times. The class can be boring, but it was fun to learn about Rome.

This course is an interesting look into the concept of a Republic via the successes, trials, and shortcomings on the Roman Republic. Professor Star is enthusiastic about the material, and is a thoughtful professor. My one complaint is that the course assumes a lot of prior classics knowledge / desire to pursue the classics studies further. Just taking it as a distribution / curiosity, it is definitely still interesting, but sometimes feels difficult to stay engaged in discussion, which I think contributes to a sort-of stagnant classroom.

Professor Star is a great teacher and person. Class has a lot of reading but he addresses a lot of the material in his lecture. Courseload include readings for class, two essays, a project, and two exams. Would certainly take again.

There's reading for every class, but you can easily get away without doing it. The midterm was super easy. You only need to do one short presentation, and two very short papers and most students got an A or A-.
