Telebears?! Yay new classes!

So I guess it’s that time of the year again…TELE-BEARS!!!! Earlier today I went to Mulford (and so should everybody since it is so amazing!) and picked up my telebears form in 260 so as to get ready for planning. CNR makes it especially easy with its emails and computerized scheduling system so that I could choose what convenient time to see my academic adviser, but first I have to see my faculty adviser. Luckily many of the advisers are nice and after only a short email transaction I’m now scheduled to see my faculty adviser this Friday. This is pretty nice since my appointment with Jenny is on Monday and you have to see your faculty adviser before you can see your academic adviser. Now for some of the classes I highly recommend for spring:

Bio 1B – Feldman is AMAZING! I was never much of a plant person, but he really made me and a lot of my friends excited about plants and really made the subject come alive to the point that you felt sad when he would tell stories about trees being shaken for their fruit. Poor tree! The proof of how amazing he really is in his lecture attendance. Tell me what other professor can pack a 500+ seat lecture hall at 8am AND is webcasted.

Chem 3B – While 3b for some reason was fun for me I doubt it is for everybody so I highly recommend this class with Pedersen. He is loads better than Volhardt and had I took it in the fall with him maybe my thoughts of liking 3b would have changed….

NST 11 – Mercury, ethanol, pesticides, Tylenol! This class really ranks high as one of my most favorite classes at Cal. The material, well for me, is just so fascinating. It just blows my mind how these small chemicals cause our bodies to do so many different things. The professors are also really amazing and captivating such as Bjeldanes who teaches NST 110 currently. NST 11 inspired me to the point that I picked Molecular Toxicology as a second major and now work in a toxicology lab run by an NST 11 professor (Casida).
