QotD: Class

Question: What was your favorite class (college, HS, whatever)?

My Answer: I may have to go with physics or French in high school (though organic chem was great too). In college, I enjoyed far fewer - mostly because other students rubbed out my enthusiasm. I enjoyed all of my CS classes most - funny, given that I got my main degree in medicinal chemistry. If I had to pick a class, it would be CS 161 with Dr. Hudak. He's left academia last time I heard, but he was a good guy - not necessarily a great teacher, but a good guy - that made even the mindlessness of CS 161 (for me) tolerable and enjoyable.

  1. My favorite class was CS 537: Internet Programming. Every week we would explore a different internet protocol (HTTP, POP, SMTP, gopher, etc) and then have an assignment to write a simple program to use that protocol.

    I found it fun and informative.

  2. In high school, Beat Literature slightly edges out The Sixties in Art and Literature, both taught by an amazing and passionate teacher. In college, Contemporary Social and Political Philosophy was a favorite because of the subject matter, the professor, and the students.

  4. OMG, you actually enjoyed Orgo? That's incredible -- I don't think I've ever taken such a brutal course -- even biochem and med school later on were easier! My hat goes off to you 🙂
