My thinking has been completely overhauled as a result of this subject. I have a totally different concept and view of nutrition and organic foods. Nat 308 Deborah Ransey (Debbi)

I knew my thinking about food and nutrition would change while I took the class, but I didn't realize by how much. I am thrilled with what i've learned. I've realized that there is so much more to learn now - and i'm eager to get started on that path. Nut 101 Caroline McLane

I found that this subject touched down on so many areas in natural health and it has made me want to expand my knowledge further. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn. Nut 101 Pamela Mahoney

On an individual level I had the opportunity to learn about the human anatomy and how the body's systems work to maintain proper homeostasis. It also gave me the chance to interact with other students in the class as well as with the facilitaor. Nat 210 Victoria H Shibata-Hatch

The projects were thought provoking. Our instructor was tough but it was a good thing. She really made us dig deep and really think things through. Nat 212 Karen S. Norland

 

I had never taken a course on line so I was apprehensive. I not only learned a lot about nutrition, I also learned how to participate on line, discovered that I can manage my time well enough to incorporate a class into my life, and look forward to the next class.  Nut 101 Norma Bedwell

 

I have a great appreciation for the instructor - she is the most inspiring and knowledgeable instructor I've had in over half a century of schooling! She engaged the students which made us think, research, and respond. The online interaction was the best part of this course. I was inspired to change and share. Nat 308 Eileen 

This course has helped me become more comfortable with research type work. Also the discussions with fellow students was very valuable to the learning experience. It is nice to know how another looks at the same topic. Nut 101 Camilla V Bullman
