Everson, Sharon Silver_nugget
Fencing

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

What a wonderful woman. She is so talented and respected in her field. She has taken time off to help with the Olympics before. The Barnard fencing team is one of the best around, which is due to her instruction (I am sure).
Like any great mind, she is a little crazy. Her crazy comes down to students jerking around in class. Pay attention and try - you will be fine. If you do something well, she makes you feel like a million bucks. Especially if you do well enough to demonstrate. What a pick-me-up!

Sometimes she runs a little over the allotted 50-minutes, but that's just because she wants everyone to understand the moves since every class is built on past principles. Very straightforward instruction.

If nothing else, take this class because it is interesting. Who else do you know learning how to fence for college credit? It might score you points later in life.

Workload:

4-allowed absences. Builds your torso, arms and legs. Not much sweating involved.
