    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course for entry level college students. The College experience course give valuable tools and resources to be a successful college students. More so it gives the student exposure to the campus community by participating in a volunteer community based project. This project is selected and headed on by the students. For example my class planted flowers and did some custome landscaping at the neighborhood fire station. The staff was so grateful that we added some brightness and beauty. Now that's an experience I'll have with me for a life time.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of College Experience were study tools and resources. The what and what not to do. The safety protocols of being on campus. The most valuable resource was obtaining information about the academic study center. This resource enabled me to get all A's my first semester. I would of not known about the value of the resource had I not taken College Experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is one, take the course if you're a new or returning student. Two, if you take this course be on time and try not to miss any classes. One day can cause you to miss out on important information and resources. This class involves a lot of on hands group participation and not taking.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    During this course while it may seem like busy work it is indeed not. This course really helped me figure out what I wanted to do and some steps on how to get there. The worksheets and guidance books they give you really help shape how you look at certain things and to make sure that what you pick is because you want to pick it not because someone is telling you to.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was how helpful everyone was, including the students. No one judged you for wanting to do something that some considered odd or weird. The teacher really made sure that the choice was all yours and didn't push you in a direction in which you didn't want to go. They would give you the pros and the cons of every part of anything you suggested.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't over think it! The course speaks for itself in helping you figure out what to do
