French 50 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Farbman is so laid back! Love him as a person. Class was really dry because he just goes over the readings every time. Readings are boring sometimes but in class he sums everthing up. Tests are really easy. Puts the most important concepts that are too easy and open-ended really tries to help his students out. Easy GE and im horrible at humanities

What a cool professor. Super laid back, totally knows what he's talking about. Really helpful, too. Nicest guy ever. Definitely take a class with him if you have a chance. :)

ENGL106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took him for Woolf and Modernism. I had a difficult time understanding the material, as well as composing the essay, but he was on "my side" and helped me through the class, and I actually got an A-! His office hours were generous. His paper comments are REALLY helpful. Not too tough, either -- one paper for the whole class. Great guy, recommended.
