I loved his class, he’s a really great, funny guy. I took it over the summer with him and I’ve heard it’s a little bit easier than taking it during the normal year. We had open book, open laptop tests and the lab reports were in the computer lab and checking answers with others wasn’t exactly being watched. I remember not taking too long on lab reports, but I also had old ones to look at (pretty much the same thing except one new one). Basically, I suggest taking it over the summer. Financially it makes sense because it’s a 10 hour class for the price of 3 units and then you can take more units during the year when the price is fixed.
Sorry that’s totally up to you and if you think you can handle it. I never took Mat 17a so I’m not sure how hard it would be to take with those other three. If that was your first attempt at calculus it might be easier to take a prep course online or something before risking it.
Your best chance would be wait listing a class with a late lab. As much as it sucks to be in class until 10, you’ll be happy you did when you’re not behind.
I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, I feel I met most of my close friends outside of the dorms in clubs and teams. The triathlon team is cool and if you want, I could introduce you to a few members so it’s less awkward?
Sorry I have no idea about this. Can anyone else give some info?
On the Latin Cinema class: I took an Italian Cinema class and all of our movies were in Italian, but subbed in English. I would expect it to be the same thing for any foreign cinema class (unless specifically mentioned in the syllabus/your professor).
Free things are everywhere! Especially the MU at the beginning of the school year. Planners are handed out in front of the bookstore for the first couple weeks and also at the Buzz by one of the fraternities. Just go up and ask for one, that’s what they’re there for.
It doesn’t seem like I’ll have much time to maintain this blog, does anyone want to take it over?
Hurry go buy stuff at the MU outdoor sale! I just got 2 UCD shirts, pants, a sweatshirt and art stuff for $30 :o
