Now that I'm in 4th year (Thank god, the end is in sight!) I look back on all my required CS and Math courses to discover that I learned some valuable lessons. Here they are:
Math 135: There's a field of math called Classical Algebra?
Math 137: The prof who talks to the board (Dullerud—no longer here) clearly thinks the board is more important than you.
CS 134: If a class is at 8:30 AM, I will not learn anything from it. (This was my first and last class at 8:30.)
Math 136: Those pesky, 1% MatLab assignments that were too easy to waste your time on add up.
Math 138: "Series", when pronounced in a heavy Eastern European accent, sounds a lot like "Serious", which leads to bad puns.
CS 246: Larch is evil. It is the specification language of Satan.
Math 235: Willard rocks!
Math 237: The class that is earliest in the morning during a 5 math course term will be slept through AND: It sucks to be the last damn class forced to take Calc-3!
CS 241: I know what a seg. fault is! Not that this helps me fix it.
CS 240: Trees, trees and more trees. Computer Scientists have a definite tree fetish.
C&0 230: (Now Math 239) Goulden. The first prof I encountered in math who learned people's names—this scared me.
CS 360: The smaller the book, the more it costs.
CS 370: You really don't need to understand what the program does in order to code it.
STAT 230: It really does help to listen to the prof.
CS 342: Bathroom door etiquette—two people should NEVER be in the bathroom at the same time. That's what locks are for.
CS 351: When you're the last class to ever take a 3rd year course before it becomes a 2nd year course, the prof eases up considerably
STAT 231: Stats-free is a good feeling.
C&0 480: (History of Math) If it looks like a bird course, and sounds like bird course—it is a bird course.
CS 341: It's CS 240—again!
CS 354: I can be a totally hard-core programmer if I want to be, but now, I never want to program again!
