Surviving "Phil Classes"

Your fellow students offer the following tips for "surviving a 'Phil' class". (Compiled bySafety Net Michelle Wagner, Class of 2003)

"Taking a Phil class will definitely raise your stress levels.  However, once the class is over, you will realize that it was all worth it."   -Jerome Allen

“Never settle for work that is just, ‘okay’.”  -Michelle Wagner

"GO TO CLASS!!!  No matter how many notes you print off the website, you will never get all the information!  Also...read, read, read!  If you don't read, the multiple choice questions in the exams are going to kick your butt!" -Angela Stangel

"I was a sophomore in a class full of juniors and seniors, but I didn't let that worry me--I just worked hard and participated in class, and I did just as well as anyone else." - Michelle Stark

"Do not concern yourself with what you believe Phil is "looking for" as the "right answer,"  rather construct a unique solution to the problem and develop a strong line of rationale and you will succeed beyond measure." –Marcus Reitz

“Buy the books and actually spend a lot of time working on the projects.” -Kristy Polland

“Worry more about impressing yourself with the quality of your work than the rest of the class.” -Anonymous

“Listen to class feedback but do not let it upset you.” -Anonymous-

“Listen to the examples that Phil gives.  He tells stories for a reason.  They may help you with those lovely short answer questions on the exam." -Anonymous

“Never stop asking questions.” -Anonymous
