Gen Ed Classes From Hell

We've all been there. In order to satisfy Gen Ed requirements, we've all sought out the easiest class possible to make this nuisance more bearable. With all the tough classes in majors, no one wants to take an even harder class that doesn't even relate to their intended career choice.
