    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because even though it is a general education requirement, it helps shape your character. Even though you might be afraid of public speaking, everyone in the class is probably in the same boat, and not just with the fear of public speaking. This is the class that made me realize that I am not the only one having to endure through so many gen eds, we all do, you just have to make the best of it.

    Course highlights:

    One of the greatest highlights was when we had to give our first speech. It was a demonstrative, so not only were we having to speak in front of a whole classroom, we had to successfully show them how to do something. Everyone struggled a bit, even myself, but it was in that moment I realized I was not alone in the struggle to conquer my fear of public speaking. I learned that it is important to stay calm, to breathe, and to not over analyze every detail of the situation. I also found interesting all the different steps it takes to plan a speech, especially how we need to always consider the audience; people who do this for a living are very talented.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be so afraid that you hold yourself back. Take chances with the topics that you choose. It is important to be passionate about what you are speaking on because it makes delivering the speech so much easier. Always remember that you are not the only one that had fears entering into the classroom, everyone is in the same boat as you, use that knowledge to calm yourself down.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Stevenson is the best! He's not only a great teacher, but a very kind person as well. The course, though challenging at times, was enjoyable and educational.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that public speaking has a lot to do with body language. It isn't just about what you're saying, it's how you say it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes. Everything on the midterm and final can be found within his lectures. Although he doesn't take attendance regularly, it is important for you to attend.
