Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course for students in the Life Sciences First Year program at NC State because it really helps you prepare for the nest four years of college. Many students go into college completely blind about what they want to do with their life. I went in determined to become a plastic surgeon, and this class has only reinforced my career aspirations. The purpose of this class is to really make sure student are in the right field, as well as offering insight into what else is out there.
This course is designed to help students in the Life Sciences First Year program at NC State understand what the different Life Sciences major entails. This program is lead by Dr. Jane Lubischer, a neurobiologist who graduated from Stanford. She uses her knowledge about the brain to design a program that allows students to effectively learn about all opportunities science has to offer. Throughout this class, I have learned that not everyone comes into college knowing exactly what they want to do. With a little guidance, students can make more progress in three weeks of these types of classes than they have in the previous 18 years they have been alive.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this class, I advise students to make sure they get all of their work done and always come to class. We have a weekly presentation about each of the majors in the Life Sciences program, and missing class means that you may have missed an opportunity to learn about something that you might love.
