Puberty and Sleep
Winter 2020 - Some of the reviews for other classes Dr. Galvan teaches like 160 and 161 have pretty negative reviews. However, this was by far my favorite class I have taken at UCLA (I'm a senior). Dr. Galvan is super approachable, transparent, and passionate about the subject. She is also funny and makes coming to class enjoyable. Her tests are extremely fair if you simply put in the work to study for them; she is not out to trick you. You also DO NOT have to read the articles she provides because she only tests on lecture material. She goes over the important aspects of the articles during class. There are quizzes at the beginning of every class but they are only graded on completion. We also go over the quizzes right after we take them. Dr. Galvan was nice enough to make the final optional during the coronavirus outbreak which made classes go virtual. Overall, if you have the opportunity to take a class with Dr. Galvan, do it! I am bummed I didn't take a class with her earlier, but I am glad I was able to before graduating.
