First semester of college was great! My favorite class so far. Dr. Hoston made it fun and interesting. Make sure you go to class he's big on attendance.

Thankful for Dr. Hostons class. Exams are clear and he gives an excellent review sheet. Write out the review, study it and you should be fine. Love this class.

"Amazing lectures" "Participation matters" "Would take again"

I love this class so much that I am sadden that I have already taken Federal Govt and even considered taking it again just to have this Professor again. He gives a great perspective on current events and gets everyone thinking. This is the best instructor I have ever had hands down.

"Would take again" "Hilarious" "Respected by students"

Dr. Hoston is hands down the best teacher I have EVER had. He focuses on current events and readily gives life lessons just because he genuinely cares about his students. I'm taking him again next semester because of how much I enjoy his lectures and approach. Tests are easy, do the reviews, don't buy the textbook, and SHOW UP TO CLASS. Awesome guy

"Participation matters" "Amazing lectures" "Hilarious"

He is HILARIOUS, and he is way more concerned with how you view the world than with what's in a textbook. His tests are exact replicas of the review, which you get a week in advance. Only complaint is that he required us to buy a $100 textbook that we haven't looked at once. LOTS of class debate btw.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Respected by students"

Make sure you show up to class, because you're gonna fail otherwise. Not even kidding. But come to class, participate in the class discussions, and consider yourself bettered as a human being for being in this class. Cuz he will challenge all of your opinions, play devil's advocate, and make you respect him for it. Study and you will pass the class

SOCI 4931 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-
"Get ready to read" "Big time extra credit" "Participation matters"

He makes class interesting, but he has quite the ego. In our class, the only book we bought was one that he had written (it had nothing to do with the topic of the course). He had his review his book and review a documentary that he made, but other than that you only have a mid-term and a final exam.
