 “My favorite class this semester is my music history class. I love music and sometimes it makes me feel better. In this class we learn about different cultures and their music styles and why it’s important to them, it’s really interesting.”

“Second Language Teaching 103 is my favorite class this semester. The reason for this is because I want to be an English teacher in Japan when I get older, so I’m learning what I want to do in this class. I want to be an English teacher since my dad is one, but I also love to teach people new things. I want to be like my dad.”

“My favorite class was Family Resources 230 with Professor Muszynski. She makes her class really interesting and her lessons are super fun. She’s a really good teacher and she teaches the material in a clear way.”

“My Microbiology 130 class is my favorite class this semester. I’ve taken the class before a long time ago, but this semester I really paid attention to the material and I saw how everyday life was possible. When you finally learn about the mechanisms of how everything works, the world around you puts everything into perspective. I’ve learned a lot and I now understand why biological processes happen around you. Professor Berestecky is a great teacher.”

“Calculus was my favorite class this semester because Professor Nadine Wolf is absolutely amazing and caring. She teaches the class in a lot of different styles. She made the class easy and she connected the math to real world applications.”
