    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For many majors, you are required to take this class. There is only one professor, and he is not known for being very intentional when it comes to caring for his students, which is understandable since he has hundreds. It’s very important to put in the work outside of class and make sure you really grasp each concept!

    Course highlights:

    Learning about ecology and growing relationships through hardship. This class forces you to rely on your peers, and to work together outside of the classroom to succeed individually.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The lab is a corequisite and it is three hours long. Do not take a night lab!

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course becuase it is the base for many other courses you will take in your future if you are a medical major.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the processes of the cell that give us the power to survive, and the processes of other cells that we live with and around.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to class, take your own notes, and make sure to put in many hours studying for tests!

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a tough class but if you go to class and take solid notes then you will do great on the quizzes and tests. He's very specific on his tests but in his note outlines he is very general so it's up to you to fill in the specifics as he talks about them.

    Course highlights:

    It covered quite a bit of what I learned in AP Biology in high school but it went more in depth than I had before which was cool. Shadwick also gives great examples of interesting things and examples that are relevant and used in everyday life to help better understand the topic

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take solid notes, Go to class, go to office hours, and don't be afraid to ask questions more than likely there are a lot of students that are thinking the same thing
