    Gen Ed Elective Ideas

    I looked through the other thread that was posted around a year ago and found a couple ideas. I am looking for some more up to date opinions for some easy classes you took at ISU. I'm looking for a GPA booster preferably in the 300 level but 200 level works as well.

    Re: Gen Ed Elective Ideas

    History of Rock and Roll. Best class ever at ISU. It is a 300 level.
    Introduction to Beverages is awesome as well. Don't take anything worthwhile after it though, bc you are either real sleepy or real drunk when you get done with it.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Note: History of R&R has pre-reqs (my sole purpose for taking Music 102 this fall).

    Re: Gen Ed Elective Ideas

    HDFS 283 - Family and Personal Finance (took this one online)
    HDFS 239 - Housing and Consumer Issues

    Both are insanely easy. In 239, I was in a class of roughly 50 students, and I'd say there were maybe 10 guys in there.

    Yeah, I was taking my time writing a reply, while looking for other classes that might be worth mentioning, but after finding nothing, I just put HDFS 276 down (and that was about 5 minutes later so I didn't see your post until later.)

    Electricity 101. You may need to do more self help projects if you are Gen Ed.

    I would like to get in to HD FS 276 but there is only one section of it and the time conflicts with one of my required classes

    Re: Gen Ed Elective Ideas

    Do they have one of those art classes with the nude female models? I'd take that course.
