Hum3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Not a great professor. He handed out notes and lectured off of them. He also gives out study guides before the test. Most of the content comes from lectures but a lot were foreign concepts for me. Tests were confusing sometimes. I didnt read the book, only skimmed, would have done better if I would have read the books.

HUM 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

AVOID IF POSSIBLE!!! He is ALWAYS 5-10 mins late every day as he strolls into the class on his scooter. He is extremely forgetful and unorganized. The class is 4 tests including a comprehensive final. Also, there are a couple random in class writing assignments. Plus he wont let you see what you missed on your tests. Again, AVOID IF POSSIBLE!!

HUM1023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This has been the worst academic experience I have ever had. He is constantly late to class. He cannot stay on topic during lectures, so it ends up that nothing he lectures about is on the test. Do not take, you will regret it.

HUM2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not a good teacher at all. The day before the final test, he sent out part of the study guide. He only gives three tests throughout the semester and the final is worth a large portion of your grade. Lectures are boring and not very helpful at all. Nor is emailing him with questions.

He is hard to listen to, but you dont have to because he tells you everything thats on the test, He rambles a lot but he really knows what he's talking about. And for being at the young age of 66 he dresses prettty dang sharp.... ow ow!!!

HUM3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This guy was awful. We stayed on the French Revolutionary War all semester long, we never got past it. We never got to either of the World Wars. He just rambles. Everyone fails all his exams, so he curves everyone up to B's. No one goes to class since no one can pay attention to him.

Hum2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took a humanities class with Robinson and although you will hear a lot of uuuhhhhsss and he rambles a lot in class, the class was pretty easy. There are a few papers thoughout the class and he sends out study guides out for each test so they are easy to study for. Would recommend!!

Well..... James oh James. You will never forget any of his classes. If you can get passed the uhhh's and profound language you might find him quite enjoyable and to some extent hilarious. I hated his class but was consumed by his character. Wonderful man. God bless his heart.

This guy is pretty boring. Be prepared to hear a lot of uuuuhhhhhsss during class. Sends around study guides though so you know what is on the test. A few assignments. Pretty easy but boring overall
