SPRING2014: Course Superlatives


Pre-registration has officially begun, meaning we have all been (or should be) spending a good amount of quality time with Banner. While we at Blog cannot provide you with your advising PIN or any desperately needed overrides, we can give you the reassurance you need while freaking out about what classes to take and what to do with your life: Don’t worry about that stuff, focus on how hilarious all the course titles are! It’s time for another round of excellently researched course superlatives…
