Fall 2018 - I really enjoyed taking this class. I know Gurval isn't teaching it again, but wanted to leave him a positive review anyways! He is an incredibly passionate professor and is genuinely interested in everything he talks about. I would definitely take this class again, even though I usually hate group projects and presentations! Highly recommend taking a small class with Gurval, it's such a different experience than all other classes at UCLA.
Fall 2022 - (Architecture of UCLA and History of Westwood) I LOVED THIS CLASS!!! TAKE IT!!! It was once a week for an hour and we would meet at a different building and he would tour us around and tell us fun facts and little details about everything. I learned so much about UCLA and now am spitting facts to anyone who will listen. There was no homework other than one comment on a picture and our final was leading a tour with another person on a building of our choice. It was definitely worth it and was an extremely low stress class to take, and I met some super cool people! There were also only 15 people in the class so it was very fun to get to know a professor since all my other classes have like 200-300 people. I love Rob!!!
