This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course because Dr. Bill Graves is a very engaging, informed, and respectable professor that does a great job teaching the introduction class for geography. This class opens your mind to the moving parts of our society that require geospatial thinking. When I took this class at the beginning of freshman year, it made me stop and think about my current major and if I would want to switch to studying geography to further learn what we covered in this class.
I gained a broad and basic understanding of human geography. This class made me consider furthering my studies with geography. It genuinely opened my mind to the everyday geographic scenarios we face. It made me think twice about the meaning behind why certain businesses and establishments were chosen to be where they are. This class is very beneficial for someone wanting to gain an understanding of how things work in our society and how places are related to other places.

Advice for students:
Always come to class ready to listen and ask questions. Also be sure to massage your writing hand because I found that hand-written notes were most effective with absorbing concepts and information. Ask questions because it is very interesting material that is covered!
