I remain annoyed by how much I hated this class: I wanted to be an ES minor, and hate to say that I was weeded by this bs weeder class. I found the content extremely interesting, but I found the professors to be pretty condescending (not dash, she was awesome!), the problem sets to be my nightmare (they were not that hard but they were really harshly graded with little explanation of expectations prior/why the answer was wrong) and the class environment super disengaging. I was excited about this and learned a decent amount, but I would rather do many bad things than take it again. I would literally not recommend it to anyone ever.

This class was just very disorganized – we only had lecture once a week, so I never felt like I was really picking up anything that we learned, and the hearings were only really helpful when I was the one giving the presentation. I had Przyperhart for lab and absolutely LOVED her as a person, but the material of the labs was either way too confusing or way too simple (IMO). Overall it just wasn't a great class, but not something to stress much about if you have to take it as a requirement, which I did.

I really liked Prof Ryan, but this class was extremely uninteresting. The material is super basic, and I dont think i learned anything. The labs are taught as an essentially completely different class. Some of the field trips are cool but it does not need to be a required class. I learned most in the debate section, but it overall felt pretty scattered.
