    Back in the '80s, UNI's general education requirements were divided into twelve categories. No personal wellness requirement, but we were required to take at least two one-credit courses to fulfill the gen ed. I remember there being a basic nutrition course in the group, but I think everything else was activity-oriented (tennis, golf, fencing, racquetball, running (some sort of marathon prep course, I think), weight-training, cc skiing, volleyball, etc.). A long list of options, maybe 20 or 30 (but no climbing wall yet).

    My extra was cross country skiing. It was tough we went out to some awesome trails. Enjoyed it a lot.

    I had a racquetball class with Bucky (back in the days before the personal wellness requirement). He would do good-humored, Bawwwston-accented color commentary while destroying any two students in the class in cut-throat games (and not even trying, it seemed).

    Seemed like nice guy - always said hi and would chat for years after that class when I would see him around campus and Cedar Falls.

    I had that class the semester our football team went to the National Championship game. I didn't go to a single lecture class the last two months of the semester (I was traveling with the football team that year) -- and still pulled out an A. A joke, for sure.

    It must be a pretty good time that results in waking on the Hill.

    Prof took attendance and used it in evaluating a final grade.

    Although, it did not even remotely compare to the "Do You Want To Be a Millionaire" presentation given in business statistics.

    I took that class as a sophmore and already had a few classes for my coaching minor under my belt. I wanted to stab myself in the brain.

    They finally got rid of it?? Can they exempt my C then? Worst class to ever have a freshman take. Heck, worst class at UNI by light years.

    Or do to the overall worthlessness of that class. The professors running that class were what you call "not good." I'm not sure its officially gone though, is it?
