    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Wilking was a perfect professor, I took this course as a flex course so it went by pretty fast, but she was there to help the whole way if you needed assistance. Don't let the fact that it was a flex course discourage you because the class was easy.

    Course highlights:

    I was never a great public speaker before this class, but I learned that stage fright is only temporary. Public speaking is a huge part in accomplishing many achievements in life. Knowing how to talk to people is a game changer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid of public speaking, no one is going to make fun of you. Practice and memorize your speeches, it'll make this class so much easier.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because having proper speaking skills is beneficial to anyone in any field of study or work field. Being able to speak well helps people to communicate and excel in everything they do.

    Course highlights:

    Something I really enjoyed about this course was how beneficial it was. Because speaking skills can help you in many aspects of life there is nothing about this course that is unnecessary. I learned how to properly set up a speech to make it the most powerful speech it can be.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One thing I'd really recommend when taking this course is to constantly and consistently go to the speech lab when you're preparing a speech. Going to the speech lab helps you turn a good speech into a great one and gives you confidence that you are prepared which, in turn, helps you to do better on the speech.
