Weinstock, Elizabeth
[FYSB BC1156/69] First Year Seminar: Legacy of the Mediterranean I

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof. Weinstock is one of the nicest professors I've had so far. She is always so enthusiastic about the material and about in class discussions. I remember when we went to the Cloisters, and maybe only five people from my class were able to make it, but she was still so excited about it. I loved how she would go on and on about all the artifacts and displays and then stop and be self-conscious about being too talkative. It was the cutest thing ever and just shows how much she loves what she's doing. Although the course did nothing to improve my writing as Prof. Weinstock, like the other reviewer said, left all the work to the Writing Fellows, I did learn a lot about literature nonetheless. And I really enjoyed the Seminar experience mainly because Prof. Weinstock is such an open-minded and non-condescending instructor, unlike my current FY-English professor... It's too bad I really don't like English, or else I might take another course with her.
