I don't know if it changed over the years but you had to take a Humanities every semester and they were usually the nut job classes.
Think about when I was there, 72,73, Cegep teachers definitely represented the young culture of the day. Champlain had a few American born teachers who thought it best to remain in Canada those days and we were happy to have them and supported their presence.
I remember a Humanities class, taught by a spaced out bearded man , I'd guess late 40's, who talked a lot about crossing Mexico on a burro, who seemed to play the Dead's Riding that train song, over and over. After one too many classes of tribal chants and dances, which you can take if you have a friend in the class, which I didn't, I just walked out mid chorus one day. Thought I was smart but I probably had to take a summer course to get the final credit. Probably should've kept singing and dancing.
