Dr. Rice was an ok teacher. If you take this class, it won't be impossible but it certainly won't be an easy A or an interesting course. I wouldn't avoid this class like the plague if it worked with my schedule, but I also wouldn't rush to take Dr. Rice's class if I could avoid it.

Definitely was not looking forward to a Philosophy class initially, but Rice's enthusiasm is pretty contagious. If you want an A, expect to work for it. tedious homework-readings and homework questions to follow. Two papers-required outlines are a pain but helpful in the long run to organize thoughts.tests are fair, participate as much as possible

Dr. Rice is an extremely energetic professor who cares deeply about his subject. He assigns a great deal of homework, which involves essays for every class based on the assigned reading. He is a very tough grader when it comes to the 3 required papers. He teaches his class precisely and clearly. All questions are answered with enthusiasm.

Prof. Rice is a genuinely nice man who is very willing to help his students. He is a VERY tough grader on both tests & papers. The class is manageable, but definitely not an easy A. I probably would not take him again solely for the sake of my GPA, but he's a nice guy and cares for his students.Graded on 3 papers, tests, final exam, &participation

Great guy. Gives notes and provides an outline which makes up the tests-very helpful. ALOT of information which all has to be memorized and at least 3 hours of homework a night. His class requires ATON of effort but he keeps it interesting. He's a tough grader but willing to help during office hours. If your looking for an easy A, don't take him.

One of my favorite professors. Extremely helpful and clear. Always available for office hours and wants to help students as much as he can. Five short papers (1 page) a midterm, final and a term paper (7-8 pgs). Helps so much with the term paper--even will give you 2/3 sources for it. TAKE HIM!

Good guy, crystal clear, very helpful. But very tough. He doesnt give you an inch and you HAVE to do all the work. I did every homework and tried very very hard and I just got a B. So if you aren't planning on giving philosophy too much effort and wanna get a good grade go somewhere else.

Nice guy. He is very clear about what he wants. It is not difficult to do well in his class, though from my experience it is hard to get a solid A on all assignments. A- and B+ are certainly attainable. Very straightforward and direct -- he tells you exactly what you need to know for his tests. Does not push personal ideas/beliefs onto students.

Really nice guy, although class can be a bit boring, he's extremely straight forward and a pretty easy grader. Very helpful with papers as long as you talk to him about it. Minimal homework.
