    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because you will definitely make friends along the way! Our professor made us feel welcome and helped us act more like a team rather than a bunch of random students. She has a certain format on how she wants her students' speeches to be. Be prepared to use note cards! They're necessary and super helpful.

    Course highlights:

    It was very nerve-wracking at first; however, you get the hang of it after a few tries. This course really took you out of your comfort zone because you had to make a lot more speeches than most public speaking classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should read the book before she lectures on it because it'll help you engage more in class. Also, it would be best to prepare a few extra speeches in advance once you get the topics. There might be days where you just won't feel like making one but if you prepare an extra or two, you won't have to worry that day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because Ms. Crossman let's her students pick their speech topics, which I here isn't always the case. She's a tough grader though!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was that I actually did feel more comfortable speaking in front of the class by the end of the semester. Ms. Crossman does a good job building one's confidence. I learned to control myself in front of an audience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't dread public speaking, have fun.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course, especially with this professor, because this class was very fun and wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Professor Nafzgar was a very nice professor and taking her class was the best decision because I didn't do as bad as I thought I would do. I got an A in her class.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of the class was doing the first speech, we had to cook something and write down the recipe and present that to the class. Then, after everyone finished with their speech, we had a buffet of all the different types of food. I learned that giving speeches isn't as hard as it looks and all you need to do is be yourself and to smile!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give students that want to take this course is that they shouldn't be nervous to say a speech in front of the rest of the class. You may think the class will make fun of your speech or whatever else you can think of but really everyone is just as nervous as you are and want to do their best.
