If you're looking to take a class that is like a high school class, then do it. Its probably the stupidest thing i did this year in school. If you can deal with it tho, it knocks out the everso worthless diversity credit they require for general education. I suggest not doing it, its a waste of time and you'll realize its stupid when you have to do dumb homework and shit that you don't do in any other college class. You basically read books and take quizes on them and then write paper on them.
BUT if you do take it, for god sakes don't take the service oriented one. I was told it was the "same thing" but i lost 5% on my final grade because i didnt go to some dumb spanish night school and sit there "helping" for service learning hours. Once again i highly suggest you take a better class, there are soooooo many better classes to take, especially as a freshman.
