    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Only take this class if you are an engineering student who needs in for a requirement. The content is very dry but isn't difficult to earn an A if you go to lecture and do mild studying.

    Course highlights:

    Background of many important innovations

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is easy to not do well in this class if you don't complete your assignments thoroughly.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is actually a useful course if the student looks at the material in the right way. Instead of listening to the negative reviews of upperclassmen, approach this course with an open mind. Focus on the material instead of the annoying professor, and this class can even be interesting.

    Course highlights:

    In the discussion part of the course, we learned to write a technical description as well as a patent application. In the lecture part of the course, we viewed case studies of historical innovations and absorbed engineering advice from each one.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the readings. Take notes in class, but the professor will post the slideshows online afterward, so take use of that. Work hard on the few writing assignments there are, and the class will not be as hard as people make it out to be.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The Perfect Blend of Size and Intimacy – UVA is excellent in regards to the fact that there are just enough people to where you don't know everyone but you do at the same time.

    Course highlights:

    There are always ways to meet new people, yet you see almost everyone you know on a daily basis. Central Grounds (our lingo for campus) is so intimate that you feel like everyone is bundled into the UVA family together. It's awesome

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Parties Are Fun – Good music and accessibility to drinks. Don't go to frat parties, they are not worth it. Many non-fraternal organizations have parties that are way more fun. Asians are really nice with the alcohol :)
