I am having the best experience in SJC's department of English. The professors work to give us the best experience possible, and they go out of their way to challenge us and bring us new opportunities. Because the department is small (as most at SJC are) we English majors are very close and often get one-on-one attention from faculty. Sometimes, they even use our input when they schedule classes and select reading material. Even the strangest requests aren't out of the question. For example, a friend and I are doing an independent study of Harry Potter next semester with a professor who has worked very hard to create an intriguing and challenging course for us. The course began as a joke, but I'm very much looking forward to it, and I'm thankful because I'm sure this wouldn't be possible anywhere else.
