    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend a first year seminar course because they give you topics that you initially would not be interested in and they make them interesting. So interesting to the point where you may feel as though you would want to major in them. Plus they are overall fun-filled classes with many activities.

    Course highlights:

    There are different topics to different fys classes. Mine was the Beyonce and Nicki Minaj class (YES BEYONCE AND NICKI MINAJ) and we basically learned about both of their upbringings and how they ended up in the positions that they are in, and what it takes to get there.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you plan on taking this course you may want to consider keeping an agenda and having a separate folder for this class because you do tend to get a lot of handouts and worksheets and things like that and just like for any class, you want to designate study time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love the professor! She is so passionate about her work and will really work with you to understand the content. She's an inspiration.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the geography on the Colorado Plateau. I also learned a lot about the environments factors that are hurting this region and how they can be fixed or how they are trying to be fixed.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard in your groups! Most of the assignments are group projects, so don't take them lightly. Respect the professor and her love for her work. Pay attention and you'll do fine.
