    I'd have to say "Success & Study Skills"...

    It sounds good...but was very boring. It focused on goal setting...

    If I didn't have any goals...I wouldn't have taken that class, now would I?

    Drawing 101, a humanities credit, and a P.E. class called "Adaptive Nursing".
    Adaptive Nursing consisted of a bunch of nursing students sitting on their butts for two hrs and complaining. We all got an "A" just for showing up. We never did one single assignment.
    A total waste of time and $$.
    PE! isn't that physical education?!!

    "Foundations of Inquiry" It's a class that EVERYBODY at my University has to take in their freshman year. It's supposed to teach you how, well, to inquire I guess!? Stuff like critical thinking, etc. All you have to do is mention FOI to any of the 20,000+ students and you'll get a rise!
