ENGL 223 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is the sweetest teacher you will ever have. He's extremely knowledgeable and always does what he says he will do. He will explain something as many times as you need and he just wants everyone to do well. He cares so much for his students and if you take one of his classes, you will not regret it.

ENGL 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Amazing guy! So nice and so helpful, doesn't waste a moment but makes sure everyone fully understands everything. Attendance is mandatory but there is no penalty for missing, I turned in a paper a week late and he didn't take any points off. He's great and extremely intelligent on the subject matter, definitely take him if you can!

What is not to love about Professor Curley! He is one of the most caring, fun, and interesting professors I've ever had. He truly cares about his students and tries to make the readings interesting. This class was about literary travels and it was so much fun! You will never regret taking him, especially when he ends class 2 wks early!

ENGL 360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you get the chance to take Curley do it, you wont be disappointed. He is the most genuine, funniest, sweetest old man who cares so much about his students. The work load is manageable and he is a very fair grader. I only wrote one 8-10 pg paper. There is a midterm and a final but if you take notes in class it is very simple!

ENGL 393 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The guy is an absolute sweetheart. I took Modern British Poetry - I hate poetry, modernism and british lit but this guy was an excellent teacher. I'm practically an expert on a subject I hate which is useless but he's a fair to easy grader. I got an A just by showing up to class, paying attention and reading notes an hour before the exam. Hes funny

ENGL 393 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This guy likes to talk. Sometimes, he goes way too fast for you to understand him. He does know his stuff though. Grade is based on midterm exam, final exam, and a 6 page term paper. The exams are pretty tough so you must study. Poems are not my thing but he made it a bit clearer when reading them over. Nice guy though, attendance not required

ENGL221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Curley has an intense respect for his students. He is a nationally recognized authority on Samuel Johnson and very knowledgable about the material he teaches. If you need a class he teaches, choose him. He has a somewhat monotone voice, but he is very interesting and funny. He is ending class early this semester so the seniors aren't swamped.

ele100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took him over 15 years ago and I still remember his lessons and class as if it were yesterday. He is the most committed/ complete educator that I have ever had. He never missed a class. He even came to a class after he had injured himself prior to coming to class. I think his work ethic has rubbed off on me. I owe him a great deal of gratitude
