His Roman history class in 1965 was terrific, setting me off on a lifetime hobby interest in ancient authors , archaeology exhibits, historic sites.

HIST202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

It was an easy class, but extremely boring. All he did was read his notes for an hour. You could get away with only showing up to class for the study guides and reading the textbooks prior to exams.

Hist300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took him my last semester, never went to class, just for the study guides. The material is interesting but his voice makes you fall asleep. Take him if you have the chance, easy A.

HIST203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very nice guy but very old and gave unbearably boring lectures. I took Roman history with him and the lectures were just non-stop one hour regurgitation of minutiae without any real structure. Nonetheless the lectures weren't mandatory and the grade was only based on a midterm and final test. Ultimately the class was easy to pass but very boring.

HIST203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Definitely take a class with him. Probably the most knowledgeable professor on campus in history. Does sometimes read out of textbooks, but he only reads from ones which you don't already have (aside from primary sources). Very interesting and informative.

HIST101A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Kadish is a legend. Even though I'm not a big history fan and I found his lectures boring, I came to appreciate how much this guy really knows. He's been to many places around the world and he tells about them during lectures. He will retire at the end of the Spring 2013 semester, so if you have a chance to take a class of his, I would do so.

Dr. Kadish is the smartest professor on campus in his discipline. Lectures can be dry, but it's fascinating to be listen to someone who knows so much. He is very helpful outside of class and wants to see his students do well. Take the next possible class you can with him. He is retiring soon and a class with him is a great experience.

the most adorable little old man professor this school has to offer. easy tests, too (gives you study sheets). lectures are beyond pointless though, as 90% of what he does is reading out of the textbook or is directly in the textbook.
