    Strange College Classes

    Who knew Underwater Basket Weaving was a real class?

    I'm guessing #7 and #5 may be of particular interest to CF members.

    This reads like Shonn Greene's transcript.

    Re: Strange College Classes

    I'm trying to think of the best course I took. I think it had to be a May term course called "outdoor rec" where the final was a 5 day trip down the Bufallo River in AK. First night there was 5 inches of rain and the instructor decided we would be better off to stay in state parks instead of floating.
    It ended up being a 5 day party. AWESOME! and we all got A's. Last college course I ever took.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Beer and Society. Not as easy or fun as it sounds, but a good course nonetheless. Learned how to homebrew, the history of beer, and beer's shifting role in society. My group made the best beer, a Belgian wheat, and I still failed to get an A.

    Re: Strange College Classes

    I had a roommate who took a class in the Sociology Dept called "Courtship and Marriage"...

    Anybody know if it's still offered at ISU ?

    What, you don't think The Art of Walking qualifies as a valid course?

    Re: Strange College Classes

    It was always fun to look at some of the temporary or experimental classes they would have posting. I think I remember seeing some sort of Star Wars class posted at one time...

    The Honors program at ISU offers some interesting seminars at times. Tolkien's Mythology is pretty popular - we read the entire Silmarillion and some of the Unfinished Tales.

    Wow, 3 of these are at Cal-Berkeley and a few others in the U of C system...and not really surprised that Columbia College in Chicago had one. :)

    We called it Woo & Screw when I took it in the '70's.

    My son is taking an AM class at UNI this term affectionately know as "Porn in the Morn". I don't know what the actual title is, but he never misses it!

    I knew about the Philosophy of the Simpsons one.

    I know a few guys who could teach the Starcraft one...

    Really surprised a class about studying WoW isn't up there
