ENGLI122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a great teacher, after this class you will be ready to write correctly and compose all the coming papers throughout college, it really prepares you. This class was not easy, he is really harsh when in comes to grading. So...go to class and do your papers on time. Besides that, he is really funny and helpful. He knows a lot.

Totally nuts, and probably lying about half the stories he tells, Xidis teaches his poetry extremely well.

If you need help just show up to his office and he will tell you what to fix. Awesome sense of humor. Crack jokes along with him, he loves that. Try not to miss class he lets you know what you need to wright in each paragraph of each essay. Do the work and you will be fine.

I took a poetry class, and I found Dr. Xidis to be an amazing professor. He's "aold-school," in the sense that he has expectations for you. I enjoyed his classes, admired his knowledge and learned a lot. Highly recommended.

Freakin funny. I wish I could keep him in my pocket! If you think poetry is boring, take this guy. He says things you never would expect from a sweet old man, keeps it very interesting. Not difficult, just go to class and listen to his interpretations of the poems, he makes them make sense. A++ Take him, you'll be sorry if you don't.

Dr Xidis is not an easy teacher but he is a pretty nice guy. Sometimes goes off on tangets and his class can get really boring but nothing terrible.

Professor Xidis is a pretty good teacher. You have to work hard on each essay to get an A. Class is almost always just a discussion of whatever. We will often talk about current issues or topics of his interest for almost the whole class period. He is pretty funny. He is quite liberal.

Dr.Xidis is the greatest professor I have ever had. Not only is he very skilled at getting his students interested in what he's teaching, he is a very wise and entertaining man, and a good friend. He truly values each student and treats them as people. I have taken every class that he has taught and would highly recommend him to anyone.

A great professor. He had such an impact on me that I changed my major and my career path. You can't help but learn from him, and he challenges you to achieve more than you believed to be possible. I highly recommend him.

Bob is a tough grader and he expects high quality work, but he won't leave you out to dry on how to get to that level. If you take the time to talk to him about things, he will help you. I learned a lot from him.
