tory courses is the most chal-
lenging and also the most
important because the funda-
mentals are so important for
all the courses that follow. So
we try to put experienced fac-
ulty who take teaching seri-
ously in those courses. I love
music and signal processing,
so that section of Engineer-
ing 100 is one of my favorites
to teach now. The difference
between what students know
leaving a course, compared to
what they know coming into
it, is especially dramatic in an
introductory class, and that is
particularly rewarding for an
instructor.

Hashwi added that on Friday,

Muslim students. He added that
while he was unable to attend
the Muslim Juma'a prayers, he
still went to the University of
