One of my favorite upper div NST classes has to be NST 135. The class is a requirement for Dietetics students, but non-dietetic students can take it too! Before taking the class, I was intimidated by the duration of each class. On Mondays, lecture is two hours while on Wednesdays, the lecture is four hours. Now, however, the class doesn’t seem that bad. They say “time passes when you’re having fun” and I think that’s true. The class is very informational with lecture and discussion-based curriculum on Mondays, and field trips and project-based activities on Wednesdays. There are two midterms and no finals! The class emphasizes not only information retention, but also application. It is definitely a refreshing change from the general requirement science and nutrition classes I’ve been taking so far. The class definitely fanned my passion for dietetics, because it reminds me of why I loved dietetics in the first place. I have a midterm for this class on Monday. That’s in two days! I guess I’ll be posting again after midterm season dies down.
One more thing before I go, I updated my last post with pictures of the food I brought to the potluck! Go check them out!
