PHIL 106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's really an awesome professor. My friend took this class with another prof last semester and flunked out so I was scared of this class. However, he made the material so easy to understand and some of the quizzes and exams were take home. He takes attendance but allows make-up tests. He's really nice and funny too. Take him if you can! Got an A.

PHIL106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Seriously the easiest class ever. All exams (including the final exam) were take home and extremely short. You get homework somewhat frequently but you never turn it in; you always discuss the next time in class on the board (gives you answers). I got out of class early virtually ever time. If you want an easy A, take this course.

PHIL106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Hes an awesome guy. Easy class & I hated the material. He cares about the students & wants everyone to be on the same page. He schedules on how everyone is doing. Seriously, if you have the chance of taking him, do it. You will not be disappointed & will enjoy his humor. Even though he does go on little rants when he explains things. Great teacher.

Easiest. Teacher. Ever. Here's the daily routine: Attendance, explaining last time's homework, teaching the next session (Stupid-but-funny jokes galore), assigning next time's homework, and released AT LEAST 15 minutes early.

I loved this class. It was an easy A+ for me. As long as you half way pay attention and work a couple of basic exercises from the book there's no reason for a grade lower than an A-. I loved this class so much I'm tutoring for it next semester because I understood the material so well. Louvier is also an amazing teacher! Thumbs up from me.

PHIL106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

VERY good teacher. Class never went full length. No tests. No homework (that was turned in). Midterm and Final both take-home and extremely easy. If you get something wrong, explain your thinking and he gives you full credit. Very nice guy.. I DEFINITELY recommend his class.

If you have to take a philosophy class, take it with Louvier. Lots of extra credit, class never goes full length, we always got out at least 15 minutes early, final not cumulative. I got over a 100%. He is very nice, listens to class

he's a nice guy. kinda weird and tries to make jokes a lot. you don't really learn anything in the class but you can get an easy a. he gives a lot of extra credit and it easy to talk him into a take home final, dropping a quiz, and not turning in homework.

GREAT TEACHER! He goes out of his way to help you understand. His tests are easy. He takes everyone's opinion or suggestion into account and easily understands your point of view. BEST PHILOSOPHY PROF!!! Gives extra credit and partial credit. Do the homework it boost your grade easily. He does require you not miss class, but he is understanding.

He is an amazing teacher that truly cares about his students and is willing to help out anyone that asks. The class itself is somewhat challenging, but as long as you are willing to work you will do just fine.

STATS107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's truly one of the best teachers I have ever had in college. Not for the fact that he teaches well, but because he really cares about his students doing well in class. If you ask a question, he answers it. Whether it takes the whole class period or not. He's a great teacher, and an easy A!
