    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Kukday is currently on probation, and rightfully so. Her attempt at teaching really does nothing for her students, and her tests are full of information never covered in class.

    Course highlights:

    If it were not for Bio 212L, I would have learned nothing. Luckily, I had a great TA and learned loads about the human body and the systems throughout.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters of the book that correspond to the test. Professor Kukday will not go over this material in class but it is largely what the tests are based on.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    the subject matter itself was interesting but the teacher made it had to understand.

    Course highlights:

    Learning how the body carries out certain functions and what all goes in to make that process possible.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and study a little bit everyday because it will help you later on.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student majoring in Biology or Animal Science. Dr. Coffman was a great professor and was always willing to answer any questions his students might have had. He tried his best to make the curriculum seem fun and interesting. One of my favorite lectures was a guest lecture giving by a doctor from the Vet Medicine school on campus. She talked about different diseases found in cattle and new technology that was being developed to help detect mad cow disease up to six months faster then old methods. Overall, Dr. Coffman did a great job in making his class interesting and easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    There were many highlights of this course for me. I am a Biology major and interested in disease and how cells are affected by disease. This class touched on both human and large animal diseases. Through many lectures, I learned how certain enzymes in the body can be shut off or turned on depending on the disease. With cancer, many enzymes are turned on causing cells to over produced therefore causing the cancer to spread and affect many other areas of the body. I learned that scientists when trying to treat cancer look for those specific enzymes that are affected and work to find cures that will turn them off so they no longer reproduce the cancer cells. Although this was my favorite highlight, there were many others I experienced through this course as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any student taking this course should always do the assigned readings. They are long, but they will help make the lecture easier to understand. Participation is a large portion of the grade, so students should always show up to class. This class is not a breeze, so before every test I would suggest going into office hours and asking questions. If a student can do all of these things, they will have no problem getting an A in the class.
