Breath deep. Don’t fret. This is a 2 credit S/NS (pass fail) course. Basic criteria are: if you attend 7 of 10 classes and turn in 4 of 6 projects, you pass. Rather than thinking of this as an additional two credits of school, I like to think of it as a protected couple hours each week to do something I want to do anyway.
