    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    From General Biology to Cell Biology to even Mathematics, Dr. Haynes has always been a phenomenal Professor. He is very wise and approachable. He has always been willing to help, even when you are struggling. He is in a class all by himself. He has led the Biology Department for years and has blazed many trails.

    Course highlights:

    I learned perseverance and never to give up. He taught me the essence and beauty of the cell along with Dr. Clark. He caused me to appreciate the entire process of life.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your reading, study every night, attend labs and study sessions, and use your professor's office hours religiously.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I don't recommend it for those who aren't STEM majors because the probability of you getting behind with your grades is high. The class is a wake up from high school sciences to a taste of how real world science and learning is done.

    Course highlights:

    Bio 111 is a gen course, we learn the basics. We go in depth on Mac Molecules and Cell Division and DNA/RNA replication. The class is great and the professors aren't pushovers nor are they amateurs in their respected field. You wont pass by kissing up only by putting in the work to build relationships with the professors and administrators in the Bio department and putting in the time to study and get assistance.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay in the teachers ears and get at least one other person who is on the same level or higher in terms of understanding to occasionally study with. You have to study and get feedback on each test, and the professors are more than available to do so.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Though HBIO 111 is an introductory course as a biology major, it teaches one more than just the necessary curriculum. Speaking with Dr. Sharif during office hours made a huge impact on my decision to remain a biology major. This course challenges one’s perception as a student and one’s purpose for wanting to embark on a career in the medical field. Because of Dr. Sharif, I can confirm that I want to aid underserved communities as an Osteopathic Physician.

    Course highlights:

    Callosobruchus maculatus! Bean beetles, formally known as callosobruchus maculatus, were definitely a highlight of this course. Not only was I able to conduct experimental research on bean beetles, I was given the opportunity to establish my own experiment. During the process of experimentation, Dr. Sharif took his time with each student to grasp the concept of effectively crafting a scientific research paper. Overall, this course allowed me to understand there aren't any limits as a biologist; I am the captain of my fate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Time is the only thing one ultimately does not have control over in this course. The only advice I would give students taking this course is to manage and allocate one's time as needed.
