    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you're planning on majoring in life science/engineering, there's really no getting around this course. 152 is considered the toughest out of the general chemistry series and I would agree. This is a large (250+) person lecture and many would consider it to be a "weed out" class. Lectures are recorded online and there is no mandatory reading, but ALEKS online homework was a weekly facet and does take a good chunk of time. The topics are difficult, but not impossible and a lot of support is offered to help you succeed. Focused mainly on acid/base chemistry and thermodynamics, there are a lot of equations and calculations involved, and many of them are not particularly intuitive. However, the information presented is pretty crucial for understanding and applying chemistry in a lot of fields. Logistically, I felt that at some points, the lecture material, quiz section material, and homework did not always align, but there were many resources offered to increase understanding.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Craig is truly an excellent professor! She presents fairly dry information with with an exuberance for the topic that can't be faked, and does her best to crack jokes and engage the class, which is particularly difficult to do in a 4:30 class. I found the labs associated with the course very interesting, and I do think I understood the topics beyond just applying equations and memorizing answers to possible exam questions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend going to lecture and doing the readings and suggested questions, even if they aren't required. A lot of information is covered in lectures and it can be difficult to keep up if you don't understand a previous subject. I found doing the reading for the subject before lecture very helpful, and EOC questions helped in preparation for the test. That being said, you can miss a few classes without falling to far behind as they are recorded. I would take advantage of office hours, as Professor Craig is very good at explaining information in different ways. The exams in this course were 20 questions all multiple choice, and each one was worth 5 points. I didn't find them to be too easy, but many would say so. Midterms do end up being a time crunch, so you have to work fast, but the final exam is much more relaxed. Because of the high point value and equation heavy topics, it's easy to lose 5-10 points for silly errors, even if you understand the material, so I would practice applying equations and being thorough with units and calculations. Professor Craig offers practice exam questions which were very helpful but the test was often harder than the practice tests.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend taking Craig's course if you can! She makes even the scariest topics bearable. If you have to take the gen chem series, take it with her. Prepare before lectures. Try to get ahead! If anything, don't fall behind. It will lead to your demise. Get ready to dive into thermodynamics. It's a really cool subject, but definitely challenging.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were some cool labs, new study habits, and a new perspective on hard courses. You really can do anything you put your mind to, and it helps to take care of yourself and find some people you can talk though topics with while you're at it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If anything, I learned that you can recover from the most miserable test scores. I studied hard at the beginning and end of the quarter, before and during mid-winter de-motivation kicked in. I don't want to scare anyone off, but it was definitely tough. If you can stay on top of the topics, attend office hours, make sure you understand something before you move on, you will succeed. And you'll feel great that you made it through!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My personal experience with Greek Life may be a tad bit different than others' experiences, but mine all in all has been truly positive. I have made great friends whom are involved in Greek life and they are all amazingly involved in their community and contribute wonderfully to their chapters.

    Course highlights:

    They all juggle so much on their plates and work really hard to keep their grades up (nothing lower than a 3.5) as well. Those in Greek Life, mostly, are well-regarded in my opinion. Indeed, some fraternities do have notable parties (that I have never attended), but not exactly in the most noble way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I have a personal friend who is in a sorority and she shared that all of her sisters are so focused on helping each other and pushing each other to be the best they can be academically, socially and intrinsically. Another one of my friends is involved and I feel as though he has grown in leadership potential and academically - his time management skills are definitely admirable.
