    I really enjoyed Psych 115 with Avishek. Maybe it was because it was online, but his class seemed a lot easier than previously expected. I know he’s teaching summer 2022, and I’d highly recommend taking it with him! He gives so much detail and is funny.

    I LOVED this class; highly recommend it. This class always has such poor review but its not the professors fault—the curriculum is just dense by nature
