    With three semesters to go, and taking care of the majority of my requirements, I've got a few elective credits to throw in there (roughly 12 over the next three semesters to be exact).

    So what's the easiest class you ever took at Iowa State? Preferably 2-3 credits each.

    U.S. Religions with Eric Northway. Easy, but really interesting and he was a great professor.



    .......though upon further research it appears that as of January, he is now teaching in Idaho.

    American Indians with Jen Coppic. You just have to go to class. Also everyone else who has taken the class would agree she is quite attractive.

    HDFS 276, the class where you talk about sex.

    Will never forget the day I walked into class late and the class was watching an adult movie.

    What? Northway left? He was one of the most badass teachers I had at ISU and he was teaching Religion! A big loss for ISU IMHO.

    To answer the OPs question Religion 210, Religion 205, and Theater 106 are all very easy. They aren't just sit through class and collect an A classes but if you put in decent work you'll get an A.

    American Indian Studies 300 or 301 or something with Cecil Whitehat. I was one of a few people in there that weren't on the football or volleyball team. Man that class was a piece of cake. You basically sit back and listen to stories from the professor about his visions during sweat lodge sessions, and watch a lot of documentaries.

    I'm looking for a class with no projects and easy multiple choice tests. Any suggestions?

    Is there a certain professor in particular to try to sign up for? The American Indians study one sounds pretty easy too. All depends on what sections are taken up before I register. I'm trying to work it out to get Friday off. Convenient for mug nights.

    All Psych classes. I guess 101 was the easiest, but the other 3 I took (I had to take electives in one course of study) were easy too.

    I messed up so bad with my electives when I was in school. In my two (failed) attempts to actually find interesting out of major classes I just ended up taking needlessly hard classes filled with poli sci majors who were usually condescending.

    HD FS 239 - Housing and Consumer Issues - meets US diversity. Super easy and actually interesting.
    HD FS 283 - Personal and Family Finance - pretty sure I took this online. It is a cakewalk.

    A good benefit of the HD FS classes is that they are probably 70% female.

    Jen is also incredibly talented as a singer, and her husband is a great person and friend.
