East Term II 2018

Instructor: Nacona Nix (least likely to fight a dragon)

TA: Katherine Schauer (most likely to roast the students)

This was a truly legendary class that none of us will ever forget. Between none of the boys talking for the first two weeks and rides on Jimmy's wheelchair, Evolution of Empire was absolutely incredible. Everyone in the class was awesome and Katherine was a 10/10 TA who let us pet two forbidden dogs.
