SOC 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's a crazy cool person, but she needs to pick a different profession. She's a terrible teacher who doesn't explain anything and is very confusing. She gets off topic more than any other teacher I've had. She will ramble on about nothing and let class out late. Everybody just gets up and leaves most of the time. She's a horrible teacher!!

Troup may be a great person, but as a professor, I'm sorry to say she is probably the worst one i've experienced so far. Make sure you ask her personally about exam dates. She posts dates on syllabus and then gives exams when she feels like, leaving you unprepared. You know what?Just choose another professor.

She is an amazing teacher... but she REALLY goes off topic... she should talk about her dogs and about murder on her test instead of things about sociology...

I loved Troup as a person, but my gosh she was a horrible teacher. I used MAYBE 6 pages to take notes the ENTIRE semester. In class we brought up or opened the book MAYBE 3 times. Then we were tested on readings that we never discussed in class. I would NEVER recommended her. Sorry. Not.

Ms. Troup is a very funny person!! But is not a good teacher, I would not recommend her if you need extra help because you basically put your self through the class. Her lectures never make sense and she gets off topic WAAYYYY too much!! A take home quiz and study groups are the only reason I passed

She is a really nice teacher and funny sometimes but her class is so hard! She doesn't explain anything and the only reason I'm doing good in her class is because she gave out extra credit points like crazy Her exam are base on the book make sure to read up. Also ask her if you could do a take home exam. She might consider it. It work for me ^^

The sem. is about to end & I currently have a 90% in the class (TYBG). Good hearted being, but I did find this class kinda stressful cuz her lectures constantly went off topic. Make sure you take any EC opp &READ the book. The test isn't just memorizing terms. & make friends w/ ppl next to you b/c study groups will be the best thing for this class.

Goes off topic, grades are based only on exams. You will have to read the book if you want to pass.

Terrible teacher, wonderful human being. She is very nice but she is NEVER on topic! She goes into a lot of personal information, none of which has anything at all to do with sociology. Did not learn anything in her class. I ended up with a B in her class due to her extra credit opportunities.She also does not hand back papers in a timely fashion.

She is a great professor and human being. A lot of people complain about her methods I used to be one of them. I failed the first two take home tests due to my laziness got my stuff together did the extra credits and Aced the exam. I managed to pass so the rest of you who complained this is college and the grades depend on you not her.

Troup is the most hilarious, entertaining teacher I ever had. I am not a morning person, but she made the class super interesting & easy. She handed out a study worksheet with 100 questions. I joined a study group of 10, we all would look for 10 answers each. The exact questions in the worksheet were on the exam! She gave a lot of extra credit too!

One of the BEST professors at the school. Those who complain about her 101 class did not keep up with the textbook. She is an expert sociologist and wonderful teacher who gives very clear instructions about what you need to do to succeed in her class. Complainers are expecting to be spoon-fed, as another reviewer pointed out.

I have no idea what class these few people were in, but she was a truly dedicated teacher, who took great pride in connecting with her students in a way that they could all understand. She brought humor, current events, and educational information to the classroom. I wasn't an A student and I still use her life and educational teachings today!,
