    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course, Professor Atkinson is unbelievably disorganized, quite, never knows what she's doing, and is one of those professors where exam questions are a thousand times different than what was on homework assignments.

    Course highlights:

    I basically didn't learn a damn thing in this course; I don't remember 95% of the material we covered because yes again, she's disorganized.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Run away, pick any different professor, just don't pick her.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great introduction to biology. It is great to anyone who needs to take a science course but mostly for those in the major. This course is extremely interesting and covers a good amount of the basics of organisms.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the paper that we had to do on any organism that we wanted. The paper was fun to research and allowed us to learn in depth about whatever organism we wanted to learn about. Another highlight was a shark tracking project that we did where we were able to track specific sharks over an extended amount of time and learn more about sharks and their behaviors. In learned a lot about specific organisms and the diversity of the life on earth in this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest advice I could give to someone taking this course would be to go to class, and put your all into learning. As long as you participate, you will learn very interesting things about the fascinating organisms on the planet. Staying involved in the class will allow you to enjoy it and I think that is very important.
