Tuesday Sept 4 is my first day of college.
I'll be there are 8AM taking English 401. This is my basic required class that I'll have to take anywhere I go so I figure I might as well get it done right away. Plus, english as a class has always been a strong point for me, and I figure I could use some high grades 1st semester to get some financial aid from my parents!
This class is only 24 people, and I had to pay a 15 dollar "English fee" to take it.
The other class is Political science 401. As it is now, politics and the studies related interests me. So if I like the class, I'll go ahead and take 402 (or whatever is next in sequence). If I don't, I'll do well academically anyways and just use it as a credit for some class outside my major that I would have to do anyways. So it's a win either way you look at it.
This class is 85 people! I expect a lecture (which I much prefer of any other type of teaching) in an auditorium. What can I expect besides that? Are these most likely going to be teacher aids up front? Is it going to be pretty dull, generic, and high schoolish? This is UNH, so it's a public university with probably around 10k students. It's a good school though, on the top 100 in the country. I told work that I'll either need to be switching to a part time schedule or going to have to leave, and they didn't have any issues at all switching to part time (especially considering half of the people are recent UNH grads).
