"Clear grading criteria" "Hilarious" "Would take again"

I am taking the hybrid class, which means we can watch online lectures. These lectures however are not from the same semester, so I would strongly recommend going to class. It is a tough class, but he makes sure that people understand the material and is super helpful. He is also really funny. Don't slack and you'll do fine.

com219 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

Over all an incredibly rude professor. Do not be fooled by his jokes and comments he does not allow the class to fully express ideas if he does not agree with them himself. Even with the interesting and relatable movie clips and stories, after the story is finished you will never be tested on it, and you will only remember the ridiculous story.

GREAT professor. The guy really knows his stuff and knows how to teach it. Its a tough class but if you read the book and take notes you should do fine. He does a lot to help you , and he's funny as hell. He actually managed to make com theory interesting! Take this class, but don't slack off.

He was the best professor I have had so far. He is really fun and uses great examples to help you understand the material. I always looked forward to his class. Make sure to read the text you don't cover in class for the tests.

Levasseur is the absolute best professor I've ever had. I recommend him to absolutely everyone. He is so clear and good at lecturing that it makes it very easy to pay attention and therefore do well in his class. The lowest test grade I got in his class was a 92. He also cares about his students a lot and makes himself very accessible Take him!!!!

I love this man. Not necessarily an easy A, but definitely attainable with good notes and studying. Tests are all very fair. I would recommend taking LeVasseur to literally anyone. This was by far my favorite class I've taken in my time here.

I loved taking this class. He made everything really interesting. The textbook that he uses also makes it really cool. Definitely take him for Comm Theory! But make sure that you study from the textbook for the tests. They can be really hard.

Professor Levasseur has been my favorite prof in the department. I took him for Political Com and Com Theory, and did very well both times. His class is difficult; however, he is incredibly helpful and usually offers extra credit. By the end of the semester, you have learned a lot about the subject, and will actually be interested in it.

Had theory & poli com with him. lots of work(reading books, articles, 10 min presentation, tests, pop quizes, final, etc) loves to make students feel stupid if they dont know an answer. great teacher, uses his own text book so the material is easy to understand. theory was way harder than poli com. i had 0 interest in politics but now i enjoy it

Dr. Levasseur is my favorite professor thus far attending west chester. He is extremely intelligent and definitely knows his stuff. I will warn you his tests are EXTREMELY hard, questions are worded tricky, make sure you know the theories front and backwards, if you know your stuff you'll be good. His class is SOO fun! take it!

He's a great teacher, makes theories really clear and understandable. Also tries to keep away from the boring lecture style that most classes with over 200 people in them have. I would definitely recommend taking him for any comm classes you can.

David sure knows his stuff. It might seem like it will be a walk in the park but it is not. attendance is not mandatory but go to class, Read READ READ the book, and ask questions. Asking to go over the tests with him helps a lot too.

As a sophomore, this has been my favorite class thus far. Dr. Levasseur makes the class very entertaining. This along with a the clarity provided in the lectures make attendance very helpful. Outside of the classroom, every question or concern was given adequate attention. GREAT Professor!
