ENG400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Diya really is a wonderful professor and her enthusiasm is contagious. Her guidelines are clear and grades fairly. She provides a lot of feedback. This was the best English classes I have ever taken. My only complaint is that while she makes herself available for students, she always seems busy and you feel like you are interrupting her.

I have had three classes with Diya, and is a wonderful instructor! She is passionate about the material and her students. She is helpful and responds to emails quickly. She gives great feedback on her papers. Take one of her classes if you get the opportunity, you learn a lot from her!

Great professor. The class is tough without a doubt but has made me a much better writer and I believe it was certainly worth it.

Engl300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Diya is good on class teaching, she does encourage you to participate, and read. But look out for assignments, if you do well but miss one item, she fails you. I wish she would listen more to her students. She doesn't like students to question her grading style.

Diya is amazing! I learned so many pivotal things in her class that I found a new path in my academic life, and went to grad school. She. Is. Awesome. Take her class! There's a lot of reading, but it's totally worth it!

She has so much energy and interest in what she teaches that it will make you just as excited about what you learn in her classroom. You will not get by if you don't do the work, but you'll get the most out of the class if you stick with it. Great and accessible teacher who loves her students!

ENGL102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Diya is a one of a kind teacher. The class requires tons of work; however, if you take interest in it, it will be so much more easy! Diya is THE best teacher that I've had at Guilford. The class discussions are engaging and entertaining and the required writings are different, so they will make you think. But it's a great class!!

Diya is the best professor I've had so far at Guilford. Incredibly smart/wise/hilarious/nice. Participation is really important, but she would never make you feel dumb about what you say in class. Hard grader, but fair. She's the best, really - take her classes if you have any interest in feminist and/or post-colonial literature!!

Best professor I've had at Guilford. Takes a genuine interest in her students and will greatly improve your writing. Be prepared to work hard to get a B, this class is no joke.
