    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Borden is by far the best professor South has to offer. He cares about his students and how well they do in his class. He also teaches biology in such a way that you can easily retain the information. I would highly recommend taking him if you have the choice.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were Borden's engaging discussions and the participation of the entire class. It is very easy to make a good grade in his course. Every class is fun and awesome. It is literally the best class I have ever taken.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to attend every class and do all the assignments you are tasked. As long as you do everything that is asked of you then there is no reason why you shouldn't pass.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Borden is a very caring instructor. He offers a lot of bonus opportunities and sincerely wants your to succeed. The lecture class has a very high student to teacher ratio so utilize his office hours. If he knows you are trying he WILL help you! Reading the chapters is a must and definitely take the time to go to the SI (student instructor) sessions if possible. The course itself is very difficult and covers a lot of information. This class is definitely time consuming so I wouldn't recommend taking this along with other difficult classes.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Borden's lectures were most always interesting and he shared a lot of related information that allowed you to apply what you were learning and make the class more interesting. His lectures were always on the more humorous side and he was genially a laid back, very nice person.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters before class!! Utilize his office hours to go over anything that you don't understand and go to the SI tutor sessions.

    The professor loves biology, his passion is reflected in his class and through the classwork you are assigned

    Course highlights:

    The course covered biology both in-depth and on a more broad scale that detail evolutionary processes as well as discussing applications for general biology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course (although labeled general biology) requires knowledge of general biological concepts
