First Week Special: Classes To Drop Before You Die

Let’s be honest, this is you

We all know those classes – the ones that ruin your semester, kill your mood, make you yearn for the sweet escape of death. For your convenience, we’ve created a list of everything to avoid:

  • Race and Ethnicity in American Politics – “A course that had a lot of potential yet seemed to focus on very few concepts throughout the semester. Don’t get your hopes too high for the content, especially with Raymond Smith.”
  • Intro Biology I – “Mowshowitz just makes this unnecessarily difficult.”
  • Physical Chemistry Lab – “If you aren’t required to take it for your major (and you probably don’t, since there’s only one that requires it) FLY YOU FOOL.”
  • Honors Data Structures & Algorithms – “I’ve only heard terrible things about this class.” “Might actually be decent now that Blaer’s teaching it.”
  • Introduction to International Politics – “Not a bad class content-wise, but Jervis’s monotone makes people want to give up on the Political Science major. Don’t do it.”
  • Introduction to Statistics – “It’s not that it’s hard, it’s just so boring that you can’t be compelled to do a single lick of work. There are better ways to fulfil the requirement. Please save yourself the pain.”
  • Buddhism: Indo-Tibetan – “The professor is clearly an expert, but… maybe too much of an expert. You know those classes where everything is moving so fast that you end up forgetting everything (including your own name)? Yeah.”
  • First Year English (Barnard) – “What is this shit? Can’t even drop it. “
  • More specifically, FYE Women and Culture – “IF YOU HAVE GEORGETTE FLEISCHER, JUST GIVE UP NOW. THERE IS NO ESCAPE. ONLY DEATH.”
  • And FYE Legacy of the Mediterranean – “Apparently half the books listed on Courseworks aren’t even needed? But we need other DIFFERENT books, including the Bible, which cost me $13.50 USED at Book Culture. If I had known I would’ve just taken my Bible from home, you feel? I’m ready to be done.”
