    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you aren't a business major, I would definitely recommend taking this intro to accounting class. "Why should I put myself through an accounting class voluntarily?" you may ask. Honestly, accounting is quite literally the "language of business" (nota bene: you will be told this verbatim on the first day of class), and it doesn't matter what field of study you are choosing to go into, you will need to know the basics of accounting so that you can be not only educated on how a simple business operation is, and should be, run, but also because it gives you a considerable leg up on your competitors and fellow employees when it comes time for a promotion later on.

    Course highlights:

    I was always told that accounting sucks and to stay away from it at all costs if I can... Then I decided to add a finance major and got stuck having it as a requirement for it, and I couldn't be happier. Especially in Mrs. Bloodgood's class, I feel like I learned A LOT about how the world of business works in a monetary sense. She always somehow found a way to interact with her students and make accounting as fun as she possibly could have because even she understands that accounting isn't exactly the most exciting field of study. If you take her class, you won't regret it and I personally guarantee that you will come out of the class knowing more accounting than you probably ever wanted to, but trust me, it will be worth it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In the ACCTG 231 syllabus (which I'm pretty sure is department-wide, i.e. so regardless of which teacher you wind up having) it strongly encourages you to do the homework and the reading before you go to class, and I cannot reiterate and emphasize this enough. ***TAKE THIS ADVICE***. It might seem boring and tedious at first, but the reason that most people come out of the intro to accounting hating it is because they didn't put in the effort necessary to get the grade they wanted. If you can develop that habit early on, you will be able to ask questions on the material that confused you and you will inherently better understand the material not only just at the beginning of the class, but also at the end of class since everything in accounting builds on itself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning the basics of accounting. It was a very interesting course, and it actually helped me in my decision to major in accounting. I would also recommend taking it with Fred Smith if at all possible. He is probably the best instructor I've had so far in my college career.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a thorough understanding of the accounting operations involved with businesses on a day-to-day basis. I was also able to get an overview of the whole accounting cycle, from the general ledger all the way to closing entries.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go to class. Attendance is weighed heavily and most if not all material presented on the exams comes from examples/notes that are only covered in class. Most assignments are also done in class, and missing out on too many of them can really cripple your grade.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a requirement for any student in the field of Business. Although this course was quite challenging it taught me the basis of Accounting and information I can use in my life regardless of being in the field of Accounting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include learning basic accounting at a slower level, learning information about loans that will be beneficial in life all together, and learning how to work with others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the lecture videos more than once if you do not understand. The professor is there to help but the tutors help a lot too! I was always nervous to get a tutor but they are very nice and do not make you feel lesser.
