Students Begin Popular Fall Classes
Date Published: Aug. 23
Summer slumber has come to an end as UD students begin their first day of fall classes
today. The Mall is bustling as students and faculty navigate between classes, and the Cap
Bar is a more popular choice than Starbucks as patrons indulged their morning yearnings
With classes now in session, we decided to investigate which courses are some of the
most popular picks for students this semester. While most UD courses have a faculty-to-student
ratio of 10:1, by and large UD’s Core courses tend to be larger, claiming the highest
number of registered students. More notable major-specific courses also attracted
a large volume of students.
- Nearly 65 students are exploring Western art and architecture from Egyptian to baroque
in History of Art & Architecture I.
- 120 undergraduates barely fit inside Gorman A for General Biology I, where students are exploring the biochemical, cellular, genetic and evolutionary
levels of biological study.
- Inside the Haggerty Science Center, Associate Professor and Biology Department Chair
Stephen Slaughter leads 64 students in the examination of human form and function
through anatomy and physiology in Human Biology.
- From the advent of European man in the New World to The Federalist Papers, 31 undergraduates have enlisted in just one section of American Civilization I. Associate Professor and History Department Chair Susan Hanssen, as well as seven
other UD faculty, are teaching this fundamental course on our nation’s founding.
- Associate Professor of Mathematics and Associate Dean of Constantin College David
Andrews is educating more than 80 undergraduates on the science of statistical reasoning
in Introduction to Statistics.
To better picture the happenings on campus, we gathered a few lively scenes taken
from the last week.
