Quotes from Fall 2016 seminar:
Very worth taking if you’re interested in anatomy or optometry. Experience in the optometry clinic was a treat.
It’s such a fun class and also a great way to explore your interests without having to worry about getting a good grade. Professor Van Sluyters is hilarious and so fun to learn from as well.
Take it! The course is taught so well that the topics are interesting for everyone – even those who don’t plan a future in optometry.
