107 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Inspirational" "Amazing lectures"

Natural Disasters was my first Natural Science class at Bloomsburg. He made lectures so fun, and you can tell he cares about what he teaches. Tests and quizzes were graded fairly. I loved this class so much I ended up declaring environmental science as my major. It helps he's super cute too.

Natural D Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

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.

Nat Dis Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

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.

Natural Dis Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

Natty Ds Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

EGGS 107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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!

NatD107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.
