This class was tough.
While at Whitewater, I knew I was going to have to complete anatomy courses. I was hesitant to take Anatomy and Physiology 1 with Dr. Mesner because I had heard he was very strict and graded tough. However, I persevered and signed up for his lecture because I decided learning from a great professor and mentor was more important than taking the easier route.
The highlight of this course for me would be finishing in the top 7 of both of his lectures. Every semester Dr. Mesner reenacts the famous painting "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp" by taking a photograph with the top students and himself. By achieving this honor I will forever have my picture hung in the anatomy lab for future classes to see. I learned that if I set my mind to an objective I could obtain it.

Advice for students:
I would definitely urge students to create a schedule and set aside study time throughout the week. It's imperative that you study the material on your own and see Dr. Mesner during his office hours in order to stay on track. I was a student-athlete and really had to manage my time wisely. So the best advice I can give to prospective students is to study outside the classroom and to manage their time.
