"Amazing lectures" "Hilarious" "Participation matters"

Textbook: read or skim for tests; required book: short paper. Attendance: yes. In-class participation in discussions mandatory and calls on people; if you do not talk, he will be very angry; not very good for extreme introverts. Professor is hilarious and lectures are highly engaging. Take notes. Tests are easy if you study and do test reviews.

Really enjoyed this class. Follow the reviews for his exams and pay attention to his lectures. He advocates for his students success and enjoys his job as a professor.

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.

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

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.

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

"Hilarious" "Participation matters" "Amazing lectures"

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.

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
