Fall 2017 - Professor Olivia-Alvarado has been one of my favorite professors at UCLA. This was my first Chicano/a class I took and I’m glad it was with her. She’s a very friendly professor who is really passionate about what she’s lecturing about. The class itself consisted of a take home midterm paper where you choose 2 questions and write a short essay on them, a final paper and a group project. None of it is very difficult, as long as you put in effort. I personally didn’t buy the books and just used the slides when needed.
