If you got mostly “A” – You should take an (Un)Common Art or Read! You’re here for a good time and find things to enjoy and you always choose interests that increase your happiness. Take a look at all the (Un)Common courses and find something that catches your eye.

If you got mostly “B” – Take a Professional Development class! You’re adventurous and always setting out to try out new things. You can take a ProDev class about CALS, Journalism, Engineering, or Exploring Medicine Through Streaming Media.

If you got mostly “C” –  You should take an Interdisciplinary Course! You are always trying to learn everything that you possibly can. You can take a class about Statistics and Lies, Puerto Ricans in the U.S., Impact of Chemistry on Society, and the Poetics of Justice.

If you got mostly “D” – You should take a Signature Seminar! You’re breezing through and really enjoying learning about things that interest you. In a signature seminar, you can listen to researchers share their area of expertise – but you do need to contact Dr. Law!
