List Day: Ranked Freshman Classes, Fall '96 - Spring '97

From worst to best, ranked on real-world usefulness, number of times I fell asleep, and nineteen years of perspective...

  1. HUM - Roman World and Early Christianity: The type of class you have to take to be considered an Honors student. (Also, why I decided not to be an Honors student the following semester).

  2. MATH - Intro to Discrete Math: Less salacious than the title would imply.

  3. MATH - Elementary Linear Algebra: Three-man projects with the third guy never showing up.

  4. CS - Intro to Computer Science: Binary addition is fun for about four days.

  5. CS - Operating Systems Tools: Unremarkable, other than this scandal.

  6. MUS - Trumpet Lessons: The sun shining through Dr. Bachelder's venetian blinds triggered migraines abou 10% of the time.

  7. SOC - Intro to Sociology: Lifelong tips to manipulate everyone.

  8. MUS - Theory / Harmony: Partwriting is boring but Dr. Bachelder is not.

  9. MUS - Symphony Band: 50% new compositions by Mark Camphouse and 50% oboe sectional.

  10. MUS - Marching Band: Fun until it got cold.

  11. MUS - Sightsinging: Also known as "Let's sing things for 30 minutes with a bunch of people from marching band, including Dave McKee"

  12. CS - Intro to Data Structures: Arrays are like fruit.

  13. CS - Intro to Programming in C: I was good at it, and this was the semester in which I didn't overwrite my boot partition with a bad pointer.
