    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I personally enjoyed this class because of Dr. T. She was so interested about my live outside of the classroom and genuinely cared about my well-being. The class as a whole was very small and very informative. I definitely learned things that I can apply to real life and other classes.

    Course highlights:

    Because this class was about media literacy, I learned that so many people have access to what you view and media is a big resource of information. Our final project consisted of a portfolio about an issue that we cared about. It was amazing to see all the amazing opinions and the background behind these issues.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO IT! This class was so worth it. I would take it again and again if I could. The work load was extremely light and worth the little work that it entailed.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this course! It was an extremely helpful course that allowed me to learn about life skills that would help me throughout not only my college career but my entire life. It was the perfect transition course from high school to college and helped make starting a new school easier.

    Course highlights:

    The First Year Seminar that I took was on Harry Potter so that was probably the biggest highlight of the entire course! It was a great way to meet new friends. The main things that we learned in the course was how to manage time more efficiently, what resources were available on campus, better work ethics, how to be more social, and how to establish more professional relationships with others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend choosing a First Year Seminar based on a topic that you enjoy (such as Harry Potter). It helps when the teacher relates real life examples back to events that happen in a fictional story that you have grown up knowing.

    Course Overview:

    Although this class is just a first year seminar, it was helpful for a freshman like myself who have never explored Flagstaff,AZ. This class is mostly field trip based, where we explored all of Flagstaff to have a better understanding of our surroundings. As for assignments, everything was initially research on the history that made Flagstaff today. The class did not have a midterm nor any other tests but, a final that ended up being a project. The project reflected our entire experience of exploring Flagstaff during our field trips, as we were to take pictures during our adventures, we then assembled them into a power point that we had to present to the class as a final grade.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class would be that we attended once a week, which was every Monday. On those Mondays we were to meet outside of class at a certain point on campus that would usually be close to the area we would explore for the day. The Professor herself, is very lenient, understanding, and more so, willing to help you succeed in her class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If one were to consider this class I would say to prepare for Flagstaff's weather comnditions, as it varies every year according to the professor; one's experience may be different from mine.
