HIST 2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Literally the worst teacher I have ever had in my entire life. She expects you to revolve around her class. All her article analysis' are due on Saturday mornings at noon after being given on Thursdays in class. I don't know about anyone else, but I work all weekend and rarely have time to get her assignments done. She is very condescending, also.

TN History Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Best professor I have ever had. Took her for 3 of my 5 history classes at VSCC. She is demanding but very helpful if you go to her. Reading the book is overrated if you take notes in class unless she mandates quizzes then READ. I are a serious student then take Dr. Bucy. I am a better student today because I took her three times.

HIST 2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is a very intelligent woman and knows her stuff, but takes her class far too seriously for just a Gen Ed. Class. It requires at least 15 hours of extra work outside of class. If you are a parent, work, or have other classes, it is EXTREMELY difficult to keep up in her class without slacking in other areas of your life. Do NOT take her.

Bucy is a great teacher! I've taken her for three classes. You definitely have to come to class though, EVERYTHING on the test comes from her lecture- take good notes! You can tell whats going to big a point on the test because she will repeat it several times.

Very tough class but superb instruction. She is fair and she does not degrade students as mentioned. Goes the extra mile to help offers SI classes. Expects you to understand the WHY of history. Have taken 3 classes under her and probably felt she is the most qualified professor on campus. If you don't care to work take her class. Very rewarding.

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

Too much reading to comprehend it all. It becomes frustrating trying to study for exams and it becomes overwhelming when you work and take other classes. She is very smart and is willing to help, but the questions on her tests are things you would never think of as being the important issues. This is one of the hardest classes I have ever taken.

She expects students to be interactive and thoughtful. She teaches more than memorizing dates and has a great deal of passion for it. This was my favorite hisory class.

Hist2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Mrs. Bucy is a very difficult teacher and she seems to hold her class as the highest regarded class. The ex credit she does give is impossible to do because of the amt of reading she expects. Her tests are extremely hard and she doesn't mind degrading you in front of the class.

A lot of people don't like her or thought she was hard, but if you do the work and at least attempt to try then you will get a good grade. She is awesome at explaining things, while making them interesting. I completely loved her and am going to take the rest of the classes she teaches. You just make sure that for the test, you study what she says.

People complain that she is hard, and don't help all the time. I disagree strongly. As long as you pay attention and write notes down, you'll be fine. Her essays are worse than her test(in my opinion). If you are a slacker/textaholic, yes, you will fail the class.

She is a very smart woman. Be prepared to keep up with a good story because she will give you a lot of them. She tries the best she can to help and even wants to make sure you are reading the material and getting it. There is a lot of information, but good notes from class and the book go all the way.

HIST2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I absolutely loved Dr. Bucy. I thought she was very helpful in any way that she could be. It wasn't that it was a HARD class, but you had to listen, pay attention, and attend because there was a lot of information that she explained daily. The reason it was hardest for me was because there was so much information to retain between tests. Not bad!

This professor is absolutely amazing with her knowledge! She can describe the times, way of life, and how everything was in an era. Class is supposed to be learning and you will be a better student and more knowledgeable after this class. Dr Bucy is really one of the best at Vol State and I CAN NOT wait to take her next class!

I absolutely loved this Professor. She is not easy by any means but if you do the work you will be successful. I have learned so much from her and I would take her again. If you are looking for an easy class then pick someone else. But if you want to know real history then take her. LOVE HER!

Horrible! Do not take her! Not a good teacher at all! No people skills and does not know that people have life and other classes outside of her class! She may be called a "DR" but she def does not know how to teach! Please do not put yourself through her nonsense! History is interesting but she makes it boring and hard!

Dr. Bucy is a very unfair teacher. She is not helpful and ignores many, if not all, questions. She knows it all about history, but when it comes to the students -- it seems she could really careless. I'm usually a A/B student, but I had to fight hard for a D. If you want a smooth semester -- take anyone except her!
