College is tough and classes are surely like not high school academia. Knowing which classes to steer clear of at Central State University can help you succeed as a student and not panic about the hardest courses on campus. Here is a list of the toughest classes at CSU. Let’s get started!

1. PHY 2211 - University Physics I

PHY 2211 at CSU has an extremely high percent of students who fail or drop the course before bombing their GPA. The conceptual material is very hard for students who do not have prior physics knowledge, and for students that do not have passion to learn about this very complex topic.

2. MTH 2502 - Calculus I

This math course is one of the most difficult for students to pass because of the high level of thinking and equation problems on exams. This course has many formulas and requires a specific type of calculator for students to complete their homework and exam problems which can be expensive.

3. CHM 1201 - General Chemistry I

For any medical major, this course is required for degree completion. In this course, students are tested to their max with not only lectures, but lab experiments as well. This course is weighted heavily on exam scores and this is one of the most frequent courses visited at the tutor center.

4. BIO 1100 - Organismal Biology

This course is foundational for most science based students who are looking to begin their biology majors. With a variety of topics covered and lots of material expected to be memorized by student, the exams are said to be nearly impossible for most who take this course. Many students pull all nighters to complete each assignment.

5. BIO 1500 - Environmental Science

For science students, the study of environment and plants can be difficult to understand, especially when talking about the ecological makeup of the many types of topics. There is a lot of memorizing in this course, and on top of other science courses, this course is dreaded for most kids!

6. CHM 1610 - Intro to Forensic Science

This class requires a lot of work off campus and hands on projects. Aside from the heavy course load, it can be difficult for students to fit this class in their schedule with the off campus trips and factoring in other courses. Many try but fail taking this intensive course.

7. ACC 2210 - Financial Accounting

This financial accounting course is very hard for most students entering into college. Since it is a required class for their major, many have no choice but to face it head on or change their major. If a student has no experience with corporate accounting or finance, this course is said to be quite the struggle trying to catch up.

8. BUS 2343 - Principles of Management

BUS2343 is a very detailed class for students who are interested in this area of study. With plenty of information, this course has hours of extra material outside of class for students to take initiative in doing if they wish to succeed. Many kids are overwhelmed with their other classes on top of this course.

9. ENT 3505 - Entrepreneurship and New Ventures

ENT 3505 is a difficult course that was created for students looking to do plenty of hands on work. This hands on work is quite difficult for students who are first timers in this area. It takes students practically the whole semester to even begin to get the hang of the ideas.

10. ECO 2210 - Principles of Microeconomics

Intermediate microeconomics is an intensive course for students who are studying business or econ. However, with this course in your schedule, there is no such thing as an easy academic year. The exams are nearly impossible and there is an overwhelming amount of material to be learned.

Overall, Central State University has many courses and great professors to teach them. Many experienced students say if you try and avoid these classes and can manage on graduating without them, your college career at CSU will be amazing!
