Which class did you like most? What made it so great?

well so far the class i liked the most was Speech...
partly because i am a pretty funny person, and my speeches were funny. Along with other speeches were either funny or entertaining
and to top it off we had a bomb teacher ^.^

my favorite so far has been fundamentals of forensic pathology or german
my fundy class because I am completely amazed and engulfed in the ideology of pathology
and german because I love the language and culture
Do I have to choose one? My first year was duller than a piece of lead, practically just repeated all of my 6th form studies (except Law which was just crap anyway).
Maybe I'll get back to you when the year starts again towards the end of September :P
Business Law was very interesting and I learned more from it that most of the other classes that I took.
For my Business Law module I practically learned that most of it is just pure logic such as what an offer and acceptance actually are.
Same with what constitutes every aspect of TORT Law, not difficult.

The classes that were considered "honors" courses at Drake were pretty good. The classes on Stereotyping, Income Distribution, and Human Rights still stick with me. In other words, the liberal arts requirements that I cursed for eating into my schedule and major-related classes I know view most fondly. *smile*
On the technical front, I would have to say VAX/VMS Assembly Language was the coolest class. Not for the low-level coolness of it, but for the things it taught me about indirection, looping, and recursion. Great class.

There was one time in English 201 or whatever the call number was when the teacher gave his first A+ on a writing assignment to a student, me... he made a big deal about it and if that wasn't enough just after he handed out the final exam, he asked me why I was still there, and said I already had an A for the class and I could leave... so I did! It was great.
There was another class I took just for diversity credit called "The History of Rock and Roll" ... yes for 3 credits and not only was the class rockin' but the teacher was SUPER fine :o
Worst classes: O-Chem (never liked that class), and this one Philosophy course I had to take where the teacher was a complete pompous jack arse..... who actually graded my final wrong and miscalculated ~4 points which I calculated was enough to move me to a C+ to a B... so I went in and got my B so it was sweet revenge for him jerking the class around :)

I'd have to say my favorites thus far have been Advanced Lighting for Film, Photography, and HD Television Production. Worst classes would have to have been Production Design, in which we learned the backwards program Vectorworks, and the Media & Society class I just finished was totally messed up. For some reason the majority of our final grade was how well we performed on our four speeches... I already took Public Speaking!
I don't know if any of that counts since it's a non-traditional college (though accredited). They don't bother to teach us stuff that's not directly geared towards our degree, and even our gen-ed classes are aimed more towards what skills we'll need in our field. Not that I'd mind learning other things...
I haven't taken many courses (i'm a second semester freshman) but I really enjoyed English 110 because I enjoy writing about controversial topics.
This semester I'm really enjoying philosophy logic, primarily because my professor is really good.

Speech? I hated that class, my teacher made an elective seem more difficult than Organic Chemistry.
I really liked Electro acoustic Music Composition. We made songs by breaking down all kinds of sounds, repeating them, adding reverb, changing pitch, etc.
