    I learned how to effectively right a research paper, while still being creative.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Unfortunately, COM 101 is required by the College of Communications. It's an introductory course that every student in the college has to take in order to graduate. This means many freshman, but also inter and intra university transfers, as well. The class is a large-format lecture with about 300 students per section and then discussion once a week. For freshman this will introduce them to a typical lecture-discussion format which they will likely encounter again over the course of four years. The information is general enough and as a survey course, does exactly that.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Supa is perhaps the greatest highlight of the course. He may seem unapproachable, but I attended his office hours several times and he is very down to earth. On the first day he pranked the entire lecture by going into a forty minute lecture on neuroscience at breakneck speed. He doesn't post the power points but is an engaging enough professor. The information is not that interesting and he knows it, but he tries to make the best of the situation.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely say it's important to attend lectures and discussion, and also purchase and read the book. It's expensive and may seem superfluous, but information from the book not mentioned in lecture is definitely present on exams. I did not have the book and did OK on the exams, but if you want an A the book is a must. There are three papers scattered throughout the semester but they are neither difficult nor particularly long. Grammar, however, counts for 50% of the grade so go to the COM Writing Center to have someone look it over. Participation and attendance counts in the discussion sections, and although I read the entirety of "Too Big to Fail," the book assigned for discussion, it probably wasn't necessary to.
