“Structure of the Nervous System, because Dr. Hendry is an absolute legend and an amazing teacher who really cares about his students.”
-Nicholas Malloy, Neuroscience

“I loved Prof. Jilene Chua's Power and Pleasure in Asian America: Race and Law in Culture because she is an amazing and caring instructor, and the course content was really engaging and relevant! I had never taken a course on Asian American history before.”
-Angel Zhao, History and International Studies

“Introduction to Moral Philosophy, with Dr. Bok. Definitely made me think about what it means to be a "good person," without necessarily ascribing to an established moral standard.”
-Brandon Park, Psychological & Brain Sciences

“Oral Presentations. You had to give a presentation every single week to develop your public speaking skills. Honestly it was like hell sometimes and so stressful but the professor was amazing and I greatly improved my public speaking skills by giving lots of presentations and reflecting on them. It’s probably the class from which I’ve gotten the most practical value.”
-Diego Tanton, Molecular Biology and Philosophy

“Any course in the program for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality! In my minor courses, I was able to place my literature and writing courses in concert with other disciplines such as sociology, history and philosophy, to name a few.”
-Lillian Kim, English and Writing Seminars

“Community-Based Learning: Teaching Creative Writing in Baltimore Schools because it applied creative writing to real life and taught me about the history and legacies of structural racism in the city.”
-Rudy Malcom, Writing Seminars

“Human Sexuality with Dr. Kraft because we talked about real life and relevant topics and he was always willing to listen to students.”
-Cate Turner, Psychology and Writing Seminars
