SOC 1102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass." "There for you"

Nancy keeps the class involved in lectures and is always willing to help if you go to her during her office hours. She will read over and correct your draft for a paper and help you get the best grade you can. Always quick to respond to emails when I had questions regarding a test that I was studying for. Wonderful teacher, fun class!

Nancy is amazing! She is the sweetest lady, and is always willing to help. Her tests are not obviously easy, but as long you study, you will be set. If you talk, or do any other distracting thing in class, she will politely call you out so you stop.

SOC 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Claycomb is very intelligent and well informed about sociology. The class is can be dry at times, though that is probably the nature of the material. The attendance "policy" varies day-to-day, depending on when she feels like or remembers to take it. The tests are straightforward and basic as are the two essays and reading summaries.

1102-20 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nancy is weird. Sweet but weird & helpful the lecture notes are very helpful for the exam, take the notes & you'll do great. LOTS of reading! There are summaries do weekly (short articles) but the summaries only have to be 8-10 sentences. She takes attendance randomly if you show up after attendance you're marked late you get 6 freebies. take her!

SOC05 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

i found her hard to understand sometimes in class lectures. she would ask you a question and give an answer,she would say "not quite" and rephrase it in your own words, so that it sounds better. same goes with essays. she tweaks your writing skills so that it makes sense to her writing style.

Loved taking this class. Nancy kept it interesting and she stayed on schedule with the syllabus. Easy to know what and when an assignment was due. Its a show up class and most of what is needed for assignments and tests is in the lecture notes. I would jump at the chance to take another class of hers. Easy, interesting, and on topic.

She is an amazing professor! We have two 100 point reflection papers, but she revises them before hand for you! She answers all of your questions, and as long as you do all of the work you will end up with a fantastic grade. She is also has a sense of humor. She is also very understanding about everything. I recommend her!

She was a nice teacher, but I felt like a child whenever I was in her class. Treated us like middle schoolers with role call and everything. She was helpful for the most part and her papers are easy A's. Take this class if you need a GPA booster.

Soc1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher i've ever had. Any time I had a question, she made me feel stupid. On test day, I didn't have a #2 pencil, so I asked her if I could borrow one, because she had a little box of them, and she told me no, so I had to leave class to go to the school store to buy one, and on top of that, she marked me absent.

I don't know what those people are talking about, she is great!She is super funny and and makes class fun. She explains everything well, has a well planned out syllabus, she is a little strict, but we're all adults here. People need to stop blaming her for their own irresponsibilities, she is a great professor! Just read the chapters & youll be fi

Soc.- She is very nutty, but makes the class interesting. She is a good professor, explains lectures well with real examples. Attendance is MANDATORY. Annoying but half way through she stops taking attendance. Tests are okay, study well and you should be fine!

Great professor!Every class is a discussion. If you take notes and study you will do great! We used 2 textbooks (one hardcover, one paperback)- I didn't read the hardcover book at all and I got a high A. She covers all of it in class (except for a couple terms, which you'll get on a study guide). Participate in class discussions and she will love u

love, sex, and family (think it's 1104). Nancy is not a bad lady, but I felt like I was still in high school. She's very weird about laptops and cell phones. However, she does care, notes were extremely helpful, and she will review your papers with you which helped me get an A. If you show up late; you're absent.. that annoyed me.

I dread showing up to mindlessly sit in class. If you are interested in learning anything useful in this class don't bother. If you are looking for an easy class that is monotonous, repetitive and painfully basic, this is the one for you. Expectations are set exceedingly low. Take Love, Sex and Family with another teacher.
