Biographical / Historical
The Course Guide is a student publication which provides information on undergraduate courses. Its aims are to help students choose the types of courses they want to take and to provide student feedback to questionnaires in which students can express their opinion about the course, the professor and the teaching assistants. A summary of the results is printed for each course along with professor's statements when available. The Course Guide was chartered as an independent student publication in 1968, and is now published once per semester.
In 1999, after being absent for several years, the Course Guide returned, entitled the ACE (Academic Course Evaluation) Guide.
