    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was super interesting. i was introduced to a lot of ideas and events that I hadn't previously known or thought much about.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the discussion we would have about how 'race' has been used in science over the years as a result of society. It sounds boring, but I thought it was fun, especially when taking it with friends.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings ahead of time, and don't try to cram it all in one night. If you have to skim, that is fine, just know the ideas and concepts, and the important individuals of each reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Creativity, Innovation, and Invention with Gib Mason was an awesome course that let me get hands-on experience in the process of invention from brainstorming a product, designing it, building it and marketing it. In the class, with the support of the professor, we built a phone app and a company that was eventually sold.

    Course highlights:

    I got to work first-hand in the field of entrepreneurship, a field that I would have never even considered working in before. I learned that with teamwork and dedication, a small group of young college students can design a product and make a campus-wide impact with determination.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take ownership and accountability for the task at hand. Understand that each member is needed for team success.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Going into the class, I wasn't so excited about American Politics. I had never really paid much attention to this because it had always seemed boring. Professor Spahr completely turned my opinion around. Through his enthusiasm, I began to not only enjoy the class, but I developed a genuine interest in the subject of american politics and policy.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight for me was my professors enthusiasm and passion about the subject. I learned about the different language that politics use to express ideology. I also learned how to debate a policy. I also got the chance to write a research paper on a policy that mattered to me!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you stay ahead of the game when it comes to assignments! The professor provides all the course material in the syllabus and encourages students to get ahead in reading and guided questions. Take advantage of this.
