Was an amazing professor. He really cares about his students, and it's clear he enjoys what he teaches. From time to time he would get off topic. But I would gladly take another class with him.

He obviously loves to teach, but his class isn't easy. Read the textbook and attend class and you should get at least a B. He also has a lot of office hours, but he is difficult to reach outside office hours. He is really nice and wants to get everyone excited about learning natural disasters.

He is by far my favorite professor! He is willing to do what ever to help you and everything on the tests come from the notes. He is also a funny and nice guy. The class is actually really interesting and I had an A in it.

His tests consist of the notes he gives you in class and the video worksheets, too. He's kinda awkward in a cute way and doesn't bother to learn names even in a relatively small class. It was sometimes hard to stay awake for an hour and fifteen but seriously... it was easy.

Don't take him, just don't do it. He's a good guy but his exams try to trick you and even when you study hard, sometimes you end up with a C. There is much easier classes you can take and are guaranteed an awesome grade. Bottom line is don't do it.

Very unorganized and tests are way to difficult for a 100 level class. He tries to give trick questions that he never explains. Never answers e-mails and gives random assignments worth 2 points whenever he feels like it.

This guy is AWESOME! Such a great class. He's fun, easy going, and really does what he can to help his students out. If you're looking for a fun class that's not extremely difficult, take this!

Had him for Natural Disasters, and I really don't understand why people disliked the class. If you attend, take notes, and study, there's no reason you shouldn't do well. At times it may seem he's just telling a story, but he uses what he says in class in the quizzes, so write it down even if it's not on the slides.

yea he's nice to look at but by far the most unorganized professor i've ever had. seriously don't take this class unless you're really interested in pictures and unorganized notes.

Great professor, had him for environmental geology which isn't my preferred type of class but he was so great and really made me forget I was in a boring science class. Recommend taking him at least once!

Best Professor I've had all 4 years. Love him! He is helpful, funny, and truly cares about his students. If you go to class and pay attention you don't have to study very much outside of class at all.

Franek is probably the greatest teacher I have had at Bloomsburg. His teaching style is one to be admired. He is always willing to help to the best of his ability and gives Extra Credit all the time. GREAT teacher.

I absolutely love Instructor Ben! Definitely one of the best at Bloom. He loves what he does & he put his student's first. Tests aren't easy, so you need to study, but the class is so interesting & he tries to get you engaged in learning. We also went on a hike! The book is needed for some things, but you can go without it. Great class !

He is so nice and he really cares about his students and wants to see them succeed. Even if you didn't do so well on a Exam or Quiz, you would still somehow get an A in the class. He is by far one of the nicest professors I have ever had and he is pretty cute too! Take him!

he makes class interesting and hes cute but he is a bad teacher. he gives a quiz every friday and uses pictures to teach, which are very hard to take notes from. the final was unbelievably hard and the "study guide" did absolutely nothing for anyone and everyone failed it.

Gorgeous young teacher who has such a great personality. Although the class can be challenging at times he is so nice it makes it hard to dislike the class. You must have him as a teacher!

Great professor, really nice and funny. Tests are easy, got 100% on one of them. There's no homework except at the very end. Does instant assessments in class to give those that actually go some points. He's knows who goes and who doesn't and is willing to help the "regulars."

Not hard at all. I freaked out before every test thinking they were going to be hard, but got above a 95 on all of them. Dont need to go to class, but it helps. I hate science and did really well in his class
