    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Ylostalo, first of all, is amazing. He is personable, really cares about his students, and is willing to spend time working with you. Second, the class itself is extremely interesting and fair warning could turn you into the world's largest germophobe.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about the different types of microorganisms and the way they can develop and grow. We also learned about their impact on the world around us and effective ways of killing them vs. growing them. We went further into metabolism and learned about different reactions and cycles. In lab we put all these things into practice by growing our own bacteria off things like our cell phones and door nobs. We preformed tests in effectively killing microbes, for example, we tested different cleaning products and discovered why they're allowed to say they kill 99.9% of germs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study as you go and build off what you're learning; never cram. If you don't understand something, go to Dr. Ylostalo's office hours, because he will help you and it will be extremely beneficial.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is interesting and very beneficial to understand the basics of infection and disease. The professor is very helpful and the way he teaches helps you learn the material rather than just memorizing it.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course if figuring out how microbes effect our everyday lives. You learn that they are everywhere and that things from blue jean dye to life threatening disease are cause by microbes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapter material that is scheduled for the class time before coming to class and use the study modules effectively and do not just go through them to get a grade.
