    1. "Bashir" +1

      Most of the courses LOOK interesting, but if you get a shitty prof it's torture. Plus I think the ARBUS hate around this time was because Mikes Bikes.

    3. Well, you can say that about any course. Even a math or engineering course. If your prof can't speak English worth shit, then its also torture.

      Plus ratemyprofs is always helpful in choosing your courses. I'd rather have a passionate and good prof to speak about a subject I'm not totally interested in, then a shitty prof that puts my interests to hell.

  2. Cause people look down on arts. I'm in arbus, and I'm looked down upon all the time. And generally when people think of Waterloo, they think of math and engineering.

    People can say that the business is crap, but once the semester ends, how much information can you retain and regurgitate? Even in DD or Business Admin at Laurier?

    I can't speak for everyone, but the best place for me to learn is during my co-op term. Sure the business aspect is not up to par, but its good enough and I get more experience out of co-op anyways.

    1. All business theory is crap. The most important part of a business "education" comes from the networking and other experiences.

  3. Because even the people who think Arts is easy recognize the people who have real talent in Art are valuable and it takes some chutzpah to study what you believe in; the image of the tortured artist.

    ARBUS has the easiness of Art without the passion and the easiness of Business without the drive.

    Basically you are seen as hedging your bets and not "following your heart"

    1. In the Arbus program, you have to complete the exact same requirements for your major as someone who is studying the same subject in Arts.. how does that translate to a lack of passion? And just because someone has an interest or inclination for business, but is not interested in a full degree for it, that does not mean that they do not have drive. With Arbus (as well as many/most programs I believe), you can have a major, a minor, and gain knowledge about business. To me, having many interests does not mean that you are "not following your heart", but quite the opposite.

    2. I didn't say it was true, that's just the perception.

  4. Bashir is awesome. Take AFM 473.
    AFM 131/ARBUS 101 sucks. You can have Jesus teach the course and it wont be any better.
