    I took EESC 2200 in Summer A (2021). It was a pretty quick time period since it was only half a semester, but Professor Tolstoy is AMAZING. She's so understanding and a great lecturer and the discussion sections we had were very interesting. One of the best professors I've had at Columbia. Highly recommend taking a course with her. Professor Malinverno is also very good at lecturing and teaching, a bit slow but with 1.5 speed it's fine. Very understanding and amazing professor. Both professors are very approachable and are not intimidating at all. They're both very kind and knowledgeable and seem to care about the class's understanding and progress in the course. 10/10 recommend

    Fantastic class, I had so much fun even though I am not an EESC major. I learned a ton but the work wasn't very stressful or too much to handle. Nettles is so passionate about the material and cares deeply about her students. I would recommend this class and professor to anyone at Columbia.

    Great class. It was very difficult and time-intensive but I learned a lot. You need to be motivated and willing to put in long hours but Dr. Spiegelman is a great professor (go to his OH) and cares a lot about his students. Previous knowledge of linear algebra and ODE is very helpful but he reviews a fair bit. Overall would definitely recommend to all motivated STEM majors looking for a bit of a challenge!

    On Terryanne as a professor: A lovely, lovely woman. She's very understanding and flexible. If you need an extension on an assignment, just ask ahead of time and she will more than likely give it to you. She gives multiple five-minute breaks during lecture, which I found helped me focus better during class. Terryanne is very passionate about environmental science, and that translates to her giving interesting and engaging lectures. I find generally when a professor seems enthused to be teaching the subject, that makes me more enthusiastic to learn the subject. On Environmental Science 1: A great survey course for learning about environmental science as a field in general. A very basic understanding of statistics and Excel would be helpful, but is definitely not required. I took AP Bio in high school, and found this class to be a pretty easy A. I really loved this class because it is focused on the environment of New York City and New York State. For example, we learned about the Hudson River watershed and the geology of the region. I think my favorite unit from this class was on paleo-ecology. I also think this is an important class to take (even if you don't want to be an environmental science major or a STEM major) because it gives you a basic understanding of climate change, which can be helpful for any discipline because it effects nearly every facet of society. On Bird, Plant and Land-Use Dynamics: Before I took this class, I really thought birds were the most uninteresting topic. However, Terryanne is so passionate about ornithology that I left the class with a newfound appreciation for the role birds play in our ecosystems. This class normally includes weekly field trips during class time; however, because I took it online, the homework assignments included going on six nature walks throughout the semester, observing bird and plant species, and then drawing them in our "field journals." I learned to visually identify common birds and plants in New York City, as well as to identify birds through their bird calls. In short, this class has totally changed the way I look at the environment around me. It has made me more observant of my surroundings, and more appreciative of the nature New York has to offer.
