What are the most popular classes offered?


It varies depending on what you are studying. In my college, Diet;rich College (formerly Humanities and Social Sciences), there are a few classes that seem to fill up rather quickly, and with students from different majors. Survey of Forms classes are among them. These classes are required for creative writing majors, so some spots are reserved for them. SoF is the introductory course to writing short fiction, poetry, or screenplays. There's one for each. Other classes I've noticed filling up fast are Black and White Photography, and the craft classes offered by the School of Drama (metalworking, glassblowing, etc.) seem popular as well, although those classes have an additional materials fee attached to them.


I'm pretty sure everyone loves the student taught courses (StuCo). They're pretty fun.
