    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There is a lot to be gained from this course. Not only do you learn about the environment directly around FGCU, you learn about other environments and systems as well. You will gain a better understanding of your effect on the world and how small everyday uses of resources and energy ultimately have a large impact on our world.

    Course highlights:

    I continue to practice what I learned through this course. I am much more aware of the amount of resources I use and the personal effect I can have on my environment. I am also significantly healthier. Part of the course involved participation at the school Food Forest where you can learn about new foods, their benefits and how to grow them yourself.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded and take full advantage of what is learned during class field trips and participation at the Food Forest. This class be very fun and informational, as long as you are willing to take it all in.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required course to graduate from FGCU which you will typically take in your junior year. The course is all about the ecosystems of Florida including plant life, animals, and respecting the environment.

    Course highlights:

    Interesting to go walk campus and visit Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and other places. Definitely a nice break from the classroom, but I'm not sure students really walk away with any newfound appreciation having paid $600+ for the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Hands down, the best advice I can offer is to take this class during summer. There are a few trips during this course and they are longer than a normal class period so if you take it during spring or fall, you will have to schedule to make these outside of class. During summer, the classes are longer so the trips fit into schedule. Also, the class would really drag on if it were 15 weeks.
