3 Best Classes I've Ever Taken

Great classes and professors come once in a blue moon.


As an undergrad, especially in your first two years, the worst thing that could happen to you is having a horrible teacher or realizing that you're not really interested in the subjects you once thought you were. As my second year at the University of South Florida is coming to an end, I've been reflecting on my first two years of college. It honestly went by so fast, but the most memorable parts are the classes I loved.

1. Sociology

Sociology is the study of human society. As a psychology major, not only am I interested in the working of the human mind and behavior but through sociology, I found that I also enjoyed learning about the way in which our psyche and behaviors affect society as a whole. I was especially interested in the sections of sociology that involved crime, and the societal pressures that lead some to live a life of crime and others not to. Taking this course helped me come to the realization that I'm very interested in criminal psychology, and largely influenced by the interest in becoming a Forensic Psychiatrist.

2. Bio 2

First thing first, I completely hated Bio 1. Yes, I know I want to be a doctor, but learning all this cell respiration cycle and DNA replications stuff. It was just so overwhelming. I was really scared for Bio 2 but was happy when I found I really enjoyed it. Bio 2 is about animals and evolution.If you're an animal lover like me, I think you would really enjoy this class. Especially if you like the weird prehistoric ones, like in Discover Channel documentaries, those come up a lot in this class.

3. Chem 2

I know how crazy it is to like a science class; however, like Bio 1 - I also really struggled with Chem 1. I was nervous for Chem 2, but I was also determined to do anything I had to get an A. Turns out, I didn't have to do much. Chem 2 is mostly math, and I really get math. I believe that applying math to chemistry in Chem 2, really gave me a better foundation for chemistry in Orgo 1. I found it very easy to past this class. Granted, I had a great professor.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
