First quarter (yes quarter) fluids at Georgia Tech. Weed out class for the Mechanical Engineering school. First day of class, professor (yes, taught by a real professor, not a TA) came is and said, 'If you ever finish a test, quiz, or exam in my class, go back and try again. No one has ever made 100 on anything in here."
It was brutal, totally appreciated by B.
Organic chemistry for me too! The class made me change my major.
"Never take for granted what it means to be a Volunteer." Peyton Manning
Organic Chemistry and statics
On the other end of the spectrum was economic geography taught by Bill Cherry. This class was a blast with many visitors each day just to listen to the lecture.
Wild Bill Cherry, one of the most colorful professors UT ever had. Seeing that name brings back some memories:
"My name is Cherry and I'm the only one on the Hill!"

Engineering Fundamentals 101 and 102 at UT.
Switched to Loistics halfway through EF102 lol
And for those who know soccer:
Not a hard class, for me at least, but ha anyone taken one of the BA classes at UT that was all about Access? The teacher used to pull the wifi logs from the auditorium and call you out for browsing the web lol
His lectures were a hoot but his tests were deceptively difficult, as I recall. I remember an epic tale one day about why he did not eat canned tomatoes. He was touring a cannery and saw a worker barf into a huge vat. "Did they throw that batch out? Hell no, they canned em. That's why I don't eat canned tamaters."
Ahhhhh, yes, the great Bill Cherry lectures. The quiz questions were worded something like "is it TRUE that there are NO counties in Tennessee that do NOT have mountains that are NOT more than 5,000 ft. in altitude?"
The question itself was confusing!
What a guy ... I remember he bragged that if you dropped him blindfolded out of an airplane anywhere in the U.S. he could identify where he was, to within about 50 miles. And he had visited every county seat in TN. He was very colorful. I really miss the guy, he was great.
He loved to go off on Ruby Falls not being natural. "They pour water down the hole at Ruby Falls," he would bellow. "If you don't believe me, check it out!"
Organic Chemistry at Emory & Henry College!
