    Um, you won't have much contact with Volaric, it's mainly your lab TA that you will have contact with. You don't go to her unless there is a problem, generally. If you can, I'd try to get into Todd Austell's Chem 101 class during drop/add. He's amazing (that's pretty much the consensus...not just my opinion, although I happen to agree with popular opinion on this one). Don't know anything about the others though.

    DRAM 116 with ken strong is an okay class...Ken Strong is one of the funniest professors I've ever met, he's awesome BUT the class is harder than it needs to be. I never went to class...it was useless...but sometimes I went just to listen to Prof. Strong and his goofiness (i.e. dancing in class, playing 50 cent, etc.)....the class is not an easy A. It's an easy B or B+ though...
