POLS1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

I took her hybrid class, and it was a lot of work. Quizzes and discussions weekly. Her tests come straight from the quizzes, and she tells you the essay question before the test. It was not an easy A, but it was not terribly hard. If you have never taken a hybrid or do not do well with doing most work outside of class do not take her.

POLS 1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is not so easy, but if you show her your effort, and participate in the twitter games and discussions, believe you me you'll not regret taking her. Study the quizzes, read the text book, and study for the easy early and you come out in flying colors. I never I would end up having a good grade in her class knowing it was an hybrid class.

Pols 1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a hard professor. There is A LOT of work and you also HAVE to study because the tests are very difficult. With all of that said and as much as it sounds negative, you will learn a lot in her class and by the end of the semester, you will find yourself having an UNEXPECTED appreciation for her. She is smart and also very helpful.

Terrible and ridiculous amount of work. She got mad and turned red when the class didn't do well on an exam. The class didn't do well because her lectures and notes are all over the place!

twitter game used for participation points and was fun! If you read the book and listen to lectures then you will do well. The multiple choice tests are based on reading and lecture. The long essays on tests are based on whatever you discussed most in class. Be prepared for writing a lot on essays, but got a 99 in class.

She can be very grueling but a good teacher. You have to study for the test. Bad thing is she doesn’t have her power points online for review later, so you have to be in class to copy them. Kind of a hottie, I think she has a tattoo on her boob.

I think I have a degree in all things Keiley. You need to read and prepare for any of her classes. You are an adult and this shouldn't be an issue. If your priorities are in the right place then you will succeed and she will help you almost every step of the way. She will not baby you but she will be the best teacher you've had

She is not easy but not to hard. You do have to work in her classes. However very helpful. Just show up, work hard, and you will do fine. Dont let her freak you out the first few days, its all a show to weed out the weak ones.

Don't expect her to be an easy professor because she's not from "harder" school like Tech or UGA because you'll learn just as much. She has a lot of expectation from her students but always makes sure everyone understand. Her enthusiasm is quite infectious! :) I love polsci now!

Dr. Keiley can seem very imposing, but once you get to know her, she's really very sweet. Expect to do a lot of studying, however, as she has high expectations of her students.

I had heard that Dr. K was hard, evil, and crazy. Do expect to work in her classes but they are not hard. She is really not bad, don?t let her first few days of thunder in the class scare you way. Just show up, do the work, and pay attention, and you will do fine. Fine meaning a B not an A. A?s are possible they just need more effort. I would take

I will have to agree with the other 2 previous comments. This mandatory class is a great insight to up lvl courses. The volunteer proj is a pain but there are so many other projects in your senior classes that make this look easy. I think Dr.K is fair and likes to play devils ad to excite convo in class. Shes good just step up to the plate!

Guess what you signed up for a college class! and that means work! She will give you a good dose of a real college workload. Slackers are not tolerated! She is fabolous and fun. Read your textbook, highlight some notes, talk in class, do the project in stride and study for 3days before the tests. You will do fine & learn alot!!!!!

If you enjoy PolSci take her! If you want a challenge take her! She is great! I loved her class and she is very insightful. You will need the knowledge she provides for the rest of your life. She is useful and passionate. Freshman if you think GGC is so easy challenge yourself & take her, she is a good dose of your Junior & Senior year work load!

POLS1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She's an overzealous professor who turns an introductory class into a time-intensive grad-school level course. She massacres your grade with her tests and gives horrible assignments that share no relevance to the subject. Her tests are mainly memory based and feel more like a high level math class than a government class.

I did NOT like this class she was Extremely sarcastic till it becomes sickening and I can?t tell which is fact and what not. Make you keep up with the assignments because she is unorganized and she wings everything. She talks a lot and the PowerPoint tells you nothing if you weren?t in class to hear her. I Hated this class.

This class will give you a deeper understanding of political science in general, especially the theorists. Dr. Keiley will work with you and if you are willing to put in the effort you will do fine...if you're lazy you won't do so well. She has a lot to offer and is very knowledgable, so try to be on her good side.

If you are sensitive about your political view and don't want anyone to make you think, don't take her class. She isn't pro Marx, or an evil NeoCon, she is playing devils advocate. Oops sorry, I mean she?s a Fascist Pinko Commie Swine trying to corrupt the minds of the youth!

Political Theory makes you question everything; break down all of the terms you think you understand. You will come out with a headache but a much better understanding about your political views. Dr. K gets a bad rap because she challenges students, people who are intellectually lazy or dishonest will have an issue with this process.
