Two posts about WOTA.
Well this is the place to vent our problems so here I go. I am a biology major with a pre-med emphasis so most of my classes are of science. There are no other classes that i should have to take other than those that are to help further my knowledge in my particular major. Freshman and sophomores are required to take gened courses before they start their classes for their major's. Since I'm a bio major why do I have to take a world of the arts class? Yeah it teaches me other aspects in the world of art and music and theater, but when am i going to use that in my future? I'm not very interested in those required courses therefore I don't put much effort into them and I end up with not as good of a grade as I want, but that's just me. They are also a waste of time. I could be taking classes for my major but instead I'm wasting time and money on these required classes.
I only know my section but from what I hear of everyone else, something has to be done about this class. Get this. The professor doesnt want to be there. He all but say that. He goes through the poweropint and no one actually cares. Not even him. We have to learn to apreciate the arts by going to 4 events that no one wants to go to. The class is big so the professor doesnt even know me. and everyone says the same things as that. Is this how all of the gen eds are? Im taking gened 130 in the spring. Why are we required to take these courses if no one wants them? Id rather be taking my business courses now.
