    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is super engaging and easy to follow. The professor makes material readily available online, explains new difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner, and makes the class very engaging. There's lots of room for extra credit opportunities too.

    Course highlights:

    Discussion is optional, meaning you get .5 extra credit points every time you go that's added to the next exam, which is awesome. Also Sprouse teaches in a way that's super engaging. He's always incorporating different types of media in class like videos and even hands-on activities, even in a large lecture class! He was the first professor I've had at UConn to be so engaging in an entry level general ed course with that large of a class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you review the material regularly, go to class (you'll enjoy it!), and utilize all those extra credit opportunities!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is a first year or second year student, or anyone in ACES. The class fulfills two different requirements for a course, and the professor is very engaging and keeping you involved in discussion in the lecture. The lecture material also brings up new ideas which I had never known or thought of before. And, it's a rather easy course!!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were definitely learning about how children and babies acquire language. There are many different levels of acquisition from birth to a few years old that you would never have known of before this!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would just recommend going to lecture and making flashcards for the vocab.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The campus is extremely isolated. There have been some incidences that have occurred on campus, but they are far and few between. I have never personally felt unsafe on campus. Police are present and there are no real threats on campus.

    Course highlights:

    We had snowball fights and made snowmen also. The fall was great I had a ball on my longboard all over campus. I think the weather is great in New England you get a chance to see the changes in every season.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Needing to keep doors locked to prevent theft during move in and move out is my only real complaint.Well we are in New England and this past winter was crazy, but we had a lot of fun outside with all that snow.
