    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Doctor Andrews really had a passion for biology and was able to communicate that with how he taught. Especially during lab, students could see the passion that he put forward even when doing something that, to him, must have been mundane as dissecting a pig.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly the highlight of the course was the professor's enthusiasm. He was a very quiet man, but you could see that he is very knowledgeable and really cared that students left the course with a newfound understanding of biology

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    An y bio student has to take the course, but you would be lucky to get him. He gives you the tools to do well, and he genuinely cares if you do well.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you love biology and have the motivation to read every-night definitely take this class, she knows what she is talking about. If you have no interest in Biology and have trouble memorizing facts this class is not for you!

    Course highlights:

    One of the things I loved about this class was how she would teach us about Biology, but she would also apply it to real life or how it would affect us. She taught us a lot about food and its affects on us as well which I enjoyed. She would also share personal stories from her life and applied them to the lessons which made it more personal.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work really hard for tests. She is an extremely hard grader so you better know your stuff when it comes to short answer.
