Her lectures are prepared all the way to the jokes she tells. Even if you HATE history, you'll find her lectures fun, it's impossible not to be interested. Attendance is mandatory. The TA's are a little tough, but not too bad. There are no actually tests, just papers, so no memorizing! Take great notes and you've done half the work for your paper. Only bummer is that there is assigned seating, but you can make friends in the labs. overall, Hopkins lectures were intriguing and fun.
