GEOG 590 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Liu is a very knowledgable GIS instructor. I found her classes very useful now that I am a GIS professional. Overcoming the challenges presented to us in assignments made my GIS knowledge base very sound. It wasn't easy when I was first learning the subject, but know I can see how her teaching has really paid off.

GEOG404 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Liu's instructions are not very clear. The assignments are way too big. She does not respond in a timely manner via email or office hours. She is always late to office hours. She has poor communication skills. She racially profiles. Overall not a great professor

GEOG300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is trying to cram way to much information into a summer semester. Her tests are rediculous and twice she has been extremely late to class and now we are suffering why she tries to make up for lost time. She is condesending when you ask for help.

GEOG404 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This was one of the most stressful classes I've ever had to take. Professor Liu is unapproachable and can make you feel dumb. If you go to every class, complete all assignments (well), do at least average on exams, and complete final project and you might walk out with a B. She loves participation and dedication.

GEOG404 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Assignments are tedious! Not to mention the final project is stressful. Professor Liu is not very approachable. She kind of makes you feel dumb. This is one of the worst classes I've had to take. But as long as you go to every class, do all assignments (well), do at least average on exams, and complete the final project, you might walk out with a B

Geog432 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Not very effective at "teaching" what she knows to the students. The assignments take a very long time mainly due to poor directions or files that are too big for the schools computers.

GEOG504 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is EXTREMELY time consuming; well worth time spent. Begin assignments early, keep up, study, and you'll be fine. She gives study guide outline for tests. Type out the answers, study, and life is good. Dr Liu is more than willing to spend extra time helping.Just ask!!

GEO404 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

First of all she is not clear on instructions given in the class. The test is ridiculous for example 2 = A, 2 = B, 6 = C, 2 = D, 2 = f, There is no grading curve although her questions are not always clear.

Loves her job and loves GIS even more. Always in a good mood and she's extremely helpful. 402 requires two exams, about 12 in class assignments, around 6 out of class assignments a final project using GIS software and a 5 min presentation. sounds like alot of work but trust me she'll reward you in the end.Take her!!
