COM 390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

I took three classes with Jessie while at WCSU and each one was great! (Health COM, Methods and Senior Thesis) She teaches in a way that leads you to actually remember the info. DEFINITELY take Senior Thesis with her!!! She has you write pieces of your paper and in the end you simply put it all together and she is very helpful along the way!

I took this class over the summer. It was a lot of work, but you can do it. Stick to the schedule, log in regularly, proofread your posts/papers, cite correctly, and you will do well. It was an enjoyable class. Participate in discussions if you take the class online. I'm glad I took the class, even though I was worried because of previous ratings.

Com390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a great teacher, and funny as well. She has a work overload but it's not that bad if you pay attention. Al assignments are due via email. And she works on a point grading system which is helpful because you could of bombed one thing and can make it up doing well on anther assignment. I will try to take her for senior thesis!

She knows her stuff but she gives you way more work then you need. She is making us do a group powerpoint for an online class. Plus there is a paper or quiz or something due every day even on weekends. For a 100 level online intercession com class there is way more work then there should be.

Currently in her online theory class... do not take it unless you can be fully dedicated to everything. There is something due everyday and deadlines are at 5pm which for me with my work schedule is difficult. She's a hard grader.

Eckstein is very straightforward about the workload, but good god is it one hell of a workload. Journals and mini-exams every week along with pop quizzes and theory review sheets. She's nice and all, but do not take her class expecting an easy A

Took an online summer class with her. It is extremely involved. I am always busy with all the work that she gives! Her deadlines are really serious. If it's not in before 5pm on the dot she WILL NOT accept it. I find this to be a little bit over the top, especially for a 100 level summer class!

The most organized teacher you'll ever have. I had her for a few classes, and there was never any uncertainty with grades or material. She's got a little feisty sarcastic and funny attitude that some may not be able to handle, but she's clear and organized. very good teacher!

COM210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took her for 3 classes now and have to say she is probably the best professor in the communication department. She keeps the class interested in what is going on. She is very clear with notes and what is to be expected in the class, not an "easy A" but definitely not a hard class. Do the work, show up and you will do fine

I have had her for multiple classes, and she was great. HOWEVER- this year she changed....maybe its because im taking a higher level class, but she doesnt really teach, tests us on material she hasnt taught yet, and expects us to teach ourselves from the book. very hard, difficult, and not easy to pass. good luck if you take her for this class

She is great we always have fun lots of power point so easy notes, gives theory review sheets. Test are medium not too hard but not an easy A. Study the notes and the review sheets you should be fine. Goes off topic once in awhile which is good makes class laugh. super helpful go to her office hours.
