Pretty easy, overall.
This course is actually a required class that everyone must take in order to graduate at the university, but I just didn't feel like I personally benefitted from it much. A lot of the information we went over in the class was a lot of review from health class that many people had already had in high school. So it's not like we learned much new information. I understand why they made this class a requirement/gened, it's all good information to know, but it's just that the majority of us had already learned about this before. A lot of it was just common sense - what a good diet looks like, how to stay healthy while being sexually active, creating goals, just ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And most of the time, this class was only 20-30 minutes, when it was supposed to last 50 minutes. So we obviously never had much to go over.
I mentioned this a little bit already, but I suppose it was nice just to go over all the information, review it just to make sure I'd remember it all. We did have a final project packet, which was a whole packet of creating goals for our sleeping habits, diet, and just thinking up ways of how we could create a healthier lifestyle for ourselves. I thought this was pretty neat, because after we created our goals for some of the topics of focus, we had to actually try and go through with these goals - accomplish them before the semester was over. It was just interesting and eye opening to see what we could change about how we live our lives, and how that would impact our lives too.

Advice for students:
In order to get a good grade in this class, you have to show up to class everyday because the professor handed out worksheets everyday that would count as your proof of attendance. Also make sure to not procrastinate on all the online weekly quizzes (we could take these whenever throughout the semester) because having to finish them all within like the last week would be really overwhelming and just not fun. Lastly, do NOT procrastinate on the final project packet, that actually took quite a bit of time for me to fill out, so I can't imagine how I would have felt if I had waited until the last week or so to start on it.
