    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great crash course in general biology. It hits both cellular and organismal levels of biology and there is no lab. There is very little required extra readings but they are all very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights included the evolution of mammals from plants and fossil evolution as well as learning about common ancestors by looking at early development.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make note cards and go to PAL(It's extra credit!) If you are having a hard time talk to Heather, she is always willing to help!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking general biology teaches you the basics of everything you need to know. The history to genetics, to sexual reproduction and development. If you are looking to be some sort of science major, this class is a perfect baseline needed before taking more in depth biology classes.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting thing I learned in this class would have to be the way scientists in the 1800s based their thought process around different subjects, and then being able to compare their thoughts to scientists nowadays thoughts.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There may be subjects that you believe you already know very well from high school or such, but you still need to study. Go over it multiple times and even study on the subject more in depth then what you learned in class. If a professor tells you took read something from a certain book, or watch a certain video. Read it or watch it, it will be very helpful for you. They know what is best.
