He is by far one of the worst professors ok have taken. He is so scattered. Sadly, he is more into telling stories of himself than actually teaching. He is extremely confusing and is not clear on when things are due. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU WANT TO PASS.

Taking this teacher was my only regret this semester. For a speech teacher, he is incredibly unclear on assignment requirements and course material Also, HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU! He lied to my face when he said he would round your grade up if you were a few points from a letter grade. I left with a 79.6%. Out of five classes this was my only C.

Pretty easy class if you just show up and do your work. He's pretty unorganized and forgets things hes assigned or said. Just do everything he says and you'll be alright. He will also try to sneak the exam study guides onto blackboard and not tell you he did it. (Exact copy of test). He'll tell alot of dumb stories about himself, just let him talk.

He's honest to a point. Treats his class like the business world and has high expectations of students. Show up with assignments when they're due and do not miss speech days. Take notes during lectures even if it doesn't always seem important. You'll do alright if you do EXACTLY what he asks for.

I would not reccoment this teacher. He talks about his personal stories majority of the time and spent little time on lectures. I dont believe anyone had a decent score on his exams because of how unorganized the course material was. But Ill tell you this, if we had an exam on his personal life and experiences we would all pass it with flyin colors

Would not recommend. What bothered me the most is his lack of organization, not only are lectures a hot mess, but he isn't clear on what is due when AT ALL. He's no nonsense in a bad way and he never thinks he's at fault. He'll never believe that he forgot to tell you about an assignment, because he's always right. Also, tons of boring stories.

Only thing that makes him easy if you do exactly what he tells you to do. Most likely he will give you the answer on the quiz and test if you pay attention. There are times you can use the book or notes you have on the quiz he gives in class. Other than that its very mandatory for you to be present for all your speeches, do that and you will be ok.

Pay attention to when he says to have the persuasive & informative speech outlines done in advance, he's not lying it's as simple as that. The quizzes are stupid easy as the exams are. As long as you don't wait until the last minute to get everything done & don't mind his babbling about things you'll get a good grade.Go to class its an easy grade!

Find a better professor if you can and avoid him at all cost! Can be very sarcastic, rude and conceited. Boring lectures and the speeches/test/quizzes are unpredictable meaning get ready to pull off a speech two days before it’s due because that’s when he will tell you. So many people dropped his class and I stuck it out. Listen to the reviews

His class is difficult and there are a ton of lectures. He is super honest and objective which is great for the right students but grading is harsh. The tests aren't that difficult but you need to take good notes and study. There are a lot of components to speeches which is really difficult for some people.

After finishing the class, I did take away some good tips on speeches and writing; however, during the class itself it held high difficulty. His lectures are terribly confusing and he often goes off on tangents. When you are able to decipher his points, they are helpful hints but otherwise he is hard to follow. He HATES memorized speeches.

very good teacher.one of the few teachers i know who makes an attempt to get to know his students. helps you with assignments if you ask. may be strict on telling you what you did wrong but it does not affect your grade and helps you improve on small overlooked details.

I had the privilege of enrolling in Professor Rushing's Honors Speech class and I must say,if you truly desire to learn the effective mechanics of speech writing and oral presentations:he is hands down the best instructor to learn from. I've learned a wealth of valuable information which has been beneficial in my studies at Rollins. Rushing Rocks!~

He's a great guy, but what he demands out of your speeches might be surprising if you've had a speech class before. The tests and the preparation you're given aren't impressive either. He can be helpful and flexible if you are polite and kind to him though. Your final grade might be higher than you expected at the end of the semester by the way.

Professor Rushing is a very put together speech professor. He helps you in any way possible. He gives you critiques and helps you become a better speaker. He explains everything in detail, and helps you on exams. He is very funny and relates to everyone on a personal level. Practice, practice, practice and you'll do great!

Amazing speak professor! He will always give you feedback when you ask for it(even after class). He is very passionate about improving peoples ability to speak in public as well as their self confidence. He is a no nonsense teacher, as long as you take the course seriously you will do great! Put in the time and he will help you in the end! Awesome!

Overall, I liked this class a lot. Professor Rushing taught me alot about the principles, and concepts of giving speeches. He's very polished, and is really funny most of the time. Hes very straight forward and clear with his assignments, as well as expected us to work from speech to speech with basically no time gap.

Yes, he does know everything about speech and can teach you a lot about communication skills, but he expects you to deliver level 5 speech's in a level 1 class. He is rude and arrogant when he tells you what you did wrong. He made this semester verrrry unpleasant. And NO, I was not looking for an easy A.

I know a lot of people may not like Professor Rushing because he can be difficult sometimes. But besides that he is straight forward with you and gives good advice and help. Everything you will ever need in order to pass is given to you, by him. DO EXACTLY WHAT HE SAYS AND YOU WILL GET AN "A". Be sure to also practice your speeches.
