She can have quite an attitude but overall she's a pretty chill professor! It's a fun class and we actually only had 1 oral presentation. A lot of group work. Try to participate as much as you can. The final was a written final. It was a fun and enjoyable class. You won't get bored easily. I recommend her!

She's a cool professor! She has tattoos! I didn't learn much in this class, but it was very fun! If you want to pass her class, you should participate in class at least once a day. She can get sensitive, so don't say anything that can offend her.

First thing I noticed about her was her tattoos, but she has a very nice and caring personality for her students. She makes the environment feel very open because she wants people to express themselves and their personal experiences. She can be sensitive, so don't do anything offensive that would make her extremely upset. And be responsible!

Not a very good class. She's VERY anal about her assignments, even though her directions don't make much sense. She will put you on the spot if you can't answer a question. Grades speeches very hard. Don't take her class!

COMM150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Typically freshmen, so I agree with a previous comment about the class feeling very high school, which could be annoying at times, &she does little to make it a college level class. 1 speech, 2 group projects for which SHE chooses groups, which is annoying as one of those is your final. Don't buy the book. Anal about following her vague directions.

Pretty easy class. A couple of response papers and group projects; nothing too major. She was kind of bipolar and condescending. Totally felt like a high school class. Probably would've enjoyed a teacher with a more creative teaching style.

She is very energetic and brings good vibes to the classroom. Her teaching style has the text info integrated into sharing stories and watching movies. She is friendly and the speeches are not even that bad. I highly recommend her.

Pretty cool class and easier than I thought. Of course, presenting speeches were nerve racking but other than that, work load was light and barely any homework. Overall, I'd recommend her

This teacher is horrible. She makes you feel really uncomfortable and plays major power plays, like pop quizzes when she's upset. She was one of the most unprofessional teachers I ever had. I did get an A- but I cannot convey how frustrating that entire semester was. Do NOT take her class.

I had Ms. Koch a couple of semesters ago, she was a lively teacher, did seem a bit tired occasionally but definitely made giving speeches in front of the class a whole lot easier to do. The group work was easy if you like working in groups. And the final was a performance left open for interpretation, it was a easy educational class.

Ms. Koch tends to be extremely irritable. She teaches at another campus and always seems to be tired. It's a very easy class though. The group work was awful, but she knows who contributed and who did not. My advice is to always answer questions in class. They're easy questions like, "What do you think?" Participation is VERY important to her.

Like everyone else, I hated public speaking but she made it fun. I also hated participation and group work and was very surprised to find an instructor who has changed my attitude for the better. All in all, fun class, non-threatening environment and top it off with an A! Kudos to Koch!!

Took her class at night once a week and it was easy! one midterm and like 3 or 4 speeches. I hate public speaking and didn't feel anymore comfrotable getting up in front of the class for the final but pulled off an A and hardly put any effort in the class. If you are just looking to get comm 150 over with take with her, definetly bareable!

Overall I really liked her as a teacher. She engages the class often. If you like to participate in class this is the right teacher for you! Another plus is that she is incredibly sexy. She is really tattooed and a total babe. That made class better for me.

This teacher can get pretty confusing. Communications really isn't a hard class at all, but this professor makes me feel reluctant to come to class. Acts like your friend one minute, then gives the class a pop quiz out of anger the next. I would opt for another teacher if you can.

For having a degree in Communications, this Professor is all over the place. You know there is a problem when everyone in the class gets a low grade on a group project and the teacher fails to look internally for why the entire class is struggling. In short, not a horrible teacher, but not a helpful one either.
