A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I was wondering if anyone knew how difficult geol 101 is- the online course. I'm looking into taking it to get some GEs out of the way, but it would push my credit hours to 18 and I don't really want to do that. If it's easy, I'm willing to take it, but if not, maybe I'll just take it some other time. Thanks!

A: Dear High achiever,

A lady in the Geology Deparment says, "Harder than you think." She added, however, a caveat that it kind of depends on your learning style. The online study course is not an easy A by any means, nor is it even really easy. Instead of having the hands-on experience you'd have in the class, you will find a lot of text and no helpful visuals.

In other words, if you're trying to just "get this out of the way," it sounds like it might not be a good idea.
