Professor Glass is the best professor I've had at Duke so far. He's very engaging and he makes his lectures fun. I actually looked forward to going to class with him as the professor, and he makes lots of jokes and makes things easy to understand. His tests are very detail-oriented, so you should go to class and take good notes.

Nice professor in general. Tests tend to be tricky as materials from extra credit assignment have been involved. Recommended for students with perfect attendance.

This guy is a legend. He really loves his powerpoints, for good reason, they're incredible. He's really good though, but you have to go to class and actually study for the test

Fantastic professor. Engaging lectures. Had no interest in geology before taking this course, but looked forward to it every week. Highly recommend it, and not terribly hard. But study!!! I bombed the first midterm because I didn't think studying was necessary and then had to absolutely pull it out at the end.

Great professor! Course material itself could be extremely complicated but Professor Glass manages to explain it in interesting and understandable ways. Lectures are always interesting and keep my attention. One of the best class I have taken!

Professor Glass is an awesome lecturer, but he's also interesting outside of the class. While I have to say he sometimes doesn't have his stuff together, he does a great job regardless. Definitely make use of regrades, because his TA's tend to not speak the best English, but he's great about giving points back. Take his class.

Prof Glass is a boss, enough said! It was fun digressing during class and talking about sci-fi and philosophy and other random stuff, though he made the class content pretty interesting as well. I'd definitely take another class with him!

Professor Glass was great. While some of his test questions were quite difficult, he is an excellent lecturer and his power point presentations are out of this world! I would highly recommend him as a professor.

Grade is based on tests which are drawn solely from the lecture. Show up to class and pay attention, and you'll get a good grade. Glass is a great professor for non majors because he brings out a childlike wonder about the earth and universe which makes the dry scientific material more engaging. Trees friendly (rocks for jocks, get stoned)

Chill bro. Very interesting lecturer. Makes something that could be impossibly boring interesting. Catch is that tests can be pretty hard in that you really have to know everything he talked about in lecture to do well.
