ANTH 104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher who has been doing this job for decades. Knows what he's talking about but sometimes it can be hard to follow because Anthro is such a complex field. Has actually done fieldwork, so he knows what he's talking about. Read the assignments before class and the exam, he is pretty straight forward about what is on it.

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

Suuuuch a wonderful, genuine, and enthusiastic man. Very approachable. However, keep up with the syllabus and readings because he won't hold your hand. The midterm and final are almost impossible, so read everything **thoroughly**. Put lots of effort into CE project and papers; they could save your life if you do poorly on the final and midterm

anthr101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O'Connor is a nice guy, but difficult to read at times. He is passionate about his field. His grading on papers and tests can be pretty tough. Be prepared for lectures that tend to drag on.

INTROANTH Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I am very shocked that Dr. O'Connor doesn't have many ratings on this site; he is genuine, lenient, and very concerned that his students not-only learn the material, but learn comfortably with enough freedom to focus on things uniquely interesting for the student. The mid-term is rather hard, but the Dr. is chill beyond belief so it's all good.

ANTH312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. O'Connor really wants his students to succeed, but he seems to be a bit too abstract in lectures. His tests are very hard and usually pretty specific. He's a great professor, just not easy to read.
