When talking about general educations classes, most students tend to hate them, considering it a waste of time. They also tend to think that it lacks importance and just take it because they have to! To be honest, I used to think that way too, but after thinking about this matter enough, I now believe general education courses are great opportunities that are handed out to students. Let me tell you why.
When choosing courses ask yourself: Is this course going to give me a skill to use later in life? What does it add to your skills? Will it make you more well rounded? Don’t choose a course just because it is easier, because sometimes you need to learn the hard way!
To look at your options for general education classes, look at the general education courses sheet. I have a ton of suggestions, but I will suggest several courses that I thought are either fun or easy credits. A course I took in my first semester was called Physics and Engineering. It was a learning beyond the classroom course, which I really enjoyed. I also gained many skills practicing laser cutting, 3D printing, and robot-making. I would definitely suggest it to anyone looking for hands-on experience. Another course I read about was a course where you do yoga. Imagine getting credit for learning how to relax and relieve your stressed mind and body! That’s another learning beyond the classroom experience.
Whether it be a course that caters to your interests, or something new and intriguing that you are curious to learn more about, general education courses can truly enhance the college experience.
In the end, I advise you to choose in a way that saves your time or makes that time worth it at least. By that, I mean mastering the skills and getting the experiences that you might need one day.
