    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    As a General Ed, this class is nice because it doesn't take up too much of your time and allows you to focus on more important courses. However, the material that you do have to complete will feel pointless. The midterms and finals are common sense based questions, and the only truly helpful part of the class if the experience with public speaking.

    Course highlights:

    The thing I most appreciated about this class was the opportunity to speak in front of people I'm not comfortable with. My whole life, I'd grown up in the same small town where everyone knew each other and presentations stopped becoming embarrassing after second grade. This was a new and exhilarating experience for me, and I appreciated the speech topics.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put effort into the Connect assignments, as they will take longer to complete if you get questions wrong. Use the study sheets for exams, because you might get questions wrong simply because of how vague they are.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a requirement for all freshmen so just make the best out of it by showing up to class and doing your work.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to become more comfortable and a better public speaker. It was a little intimidating at first the thought of doing an 8-10 minute speech without notecards but it's not as hard as you'd imagine as long as you practice. I like the little activities we did in our small section to help prepare us for speeches and work on different parts of public speaking (ex. gestures movement, vocal pitch/tone)

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class! Part of your grade is activity points and you can basically get all 10 points for the day by just showing up. Relax, the speeches are not as scary as they seem and pick topics you like, it'll make writing your outline and memorizing your speech easier and more fun.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Rapp has many entertaining stories to tell.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this class was learning about how to handle public speaking. I think students come out of this course with more confidence than before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to move around a little when you speak!
