We get it. You’re supposed to work hard and get those A’s. Your education is so important blah blah blah. But let’s be honest here, it’s also freaking hard and sometimes you get stuck with that asshole teacher who should’ve never gone into education in the first place. But, with registration just underway we’ve gathered the top 8 easy classes to take at the UO. You’re welcome.
8.) Linguistics 150:
Teacher: No one cares, it’s freaking online.
