    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor in this course uses an online program for homework. As long as you do your homework fully(and do it with the intent to learn it) you will do well on her tests. She gives detailed lectures with PowerPoint presentations which make the material easier to understand. She also frequently emails students with videos or links to help them get a better grasp on difficult topics.

    Course highlights:

    As the course name would suggest, I learning the basics of biology. Gillespie helped me to do more than just memorize, she helped me learn the material. The lab that goes with this lecture is fun. This course was not writing intensive.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do your homework. Go to her lectures. You can pass with poor attendance, but being in class truly helps you to understand the material. Get comfortable using online materials. The online book provided with her online homework helps you to learn the material by guiding your reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as it explores the basics of biology that science majors need. The topics are also really interesting!

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course was learning what I did in high school, but much more in-depth. I learned ecology basics, comparative physiology, taxonomy, and much more!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put effort and time towards the course. Also be sure to use the Connect assignments for their purpose of helping you learn the material. Do not procrastinate on studying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's amazing! She's extremely knowledgable about her subject, and she knows how to teach it in a way that students actually understand it. Many professors are geniuses in their field, but fail to get the knowledge to students in a way that everyone understands.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Axel spends every summer in Africa studying lemurs, and she has lots of amazing stories to tell from her experience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and pay careful attention to the quizzes. Many questions will pop again on the exams.
