Summer session?

It is about time to think about summer plan. What I did last year was taking two courses for major requirement, which is a great way to catch up with the grade level and keep on track.

I took were UGBA 105 "Organizational Behavior" and PH 162A "Public Health Microbiology". Both of them are 3 units. UGBA 105 is 6 weeks session, and PH 162A is 8 weeks session.

For UGBA 105, students will do case study, readings, and a group project to evaluate an organization. For the project, the evaluated organization can be either on campus or off campus groups. Students have to write a paper and come up with a presentation for their findings. When I took this class, about half of the class are international students, so I had a chance to work with students coming from around the world. I think it is a very good experience to get to know people with different cultural background.

Another class I took is PH 162A. I enjoyed this class very much. Although the class is very demanding, the topics are very interesting and the concepts are easy to get as long as I paid attention to class and spent time organizing and reading notes. I personally think the fast pace and intense workload over summer helped me to get through the materials more efficiently. I would definitely recommend these two classes over summer for those who has them as their major requirements.
