    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is so personable and engaging, never a dull moment. Not only that but when she makes a mistake, she is honest about it and she will do something about it. She will proudly admit where she went wrong. Plus as you're reading the textbook, certain things fit into place in your brain. The whole semester was just kind of an, "Oh that makes sense," moment for me.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the clinical side of the class. When I say this, I mean the psychological disorders we covered. We went over many as a class and in the textbook, but the most significant disorders were mainly Schizophrenia, Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders. All of these were extremely interesting because as the course continued it became more apparent that these people with disorders are more than their disorders. People who struggle with psychological problems get a bad reputation for the way their brains work, which breaks my heart. All in all, I thought it was interesting to be able to look into the way someone else viewed the world and how different it was compared to me.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. That is my biggest piece of advice. I know so many students who procrastinated and didn't do well. You have to keep on top of your readings. Another piece of advice is to get into the reading. When I say this, don't physically try, because you can't actually get into it. I mean you need to engage with the reading. You need to read to understand, not just read to be able to say did the homework. Connect information to your life and make it personally interesting. Doing this will help keep the information in your brain, especially since it applies to you directly. Finally, set goals, which kind of goes off of not procrastinating. If you need to read one or modules before the weekend (which with this course, you definitely will), do not wait until Friday to do so. What I did was counted the total numbers of pages I needed to read, I then would divide that by the days I had to complete the reading. As I was reading and if I had time, I would also read a few pages of the next day's, just in case something came up making it to where I couldn't read tomorrow's. All in all, try. Try to do your best. Try to work hard. Try to get your work done. If you fall behind, talk to Dr. Henderson. I did when I was struggling with adjusting from high school to college, and she helped me. It is okay to not understand some classes, but it is not okay when you don't do anything to understand and you just watch yourself fail.
