art285 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

Even though I did exceptionally well in her class, she went out of her way to put me on the spot and even went so far as to accuse me of cheating. Luckily I am good at memorization, because that is literally all her class is.

ART 285 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B-

Rachael is an AMAZING lecturer. That said, this is a lecture class, and you MUST pay attention, take notes, and study in order to succeed. Exams are pretty difficult, but Rachael gives you all the tools and resources needed to succeed- USE THEM!

ART 285 382 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hands down best art history professor in the department. She really does want her students to learn something, which is why she makes everything more difficult. If you have the chance, take a smaller class with her and you'll definitely get to know her more. Understand and learn the stories behind works of art in 285 and you'll do fine.

ART 285 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a brilliant woman and is really serious about her subject area. She makes lectures interesting. HOWEVER, be prepared to work like crazy. You must memorize everything and I mean everything. Online quizzes are timed and I panicked every time! I'm a A student and this "intro" class killed me. It required so many hours! Wouldn't do it again.

ART 285 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C+

Rachael is an amazing professor! She actually takes a boring class and makes it interesting! She's funny and she tries so hard to help her students, even by memorizing everyone's name in a lecture hall! You can tell she goes above and beyond what anybody else would do with that class.

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

This class is nothing but memorization! You literally have to study every night because you will not get your studies in the day before the exam! She expects you to memorize every image, date, and artist. It is very overwhelming!

I would love to take every class Rachel teaches. It's like training for a marathon the entire semester, and I mean this in such a good way. Her lectures are thoughtful, informative and organized. You end the class definitely feeling you learned what you paid for.

She is hands down my favorite art history professor. She is very helpful and a great person to talk to. It isn't a very easy class, but her lectures are very interesting and exciting. This class is very different from her lower level art history classes, but in such a good way! Highly recommended if you want a good challenge!
