geol110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Kearns is awesome. She is so nice and LOVES geology so she gets really into it and super passionate about what she teaches. Online quizzes every week but its easy vocab you can look up on the internet. tests are harder than they should be for a gen ed course. i had 100% in quizzes and hw assignments and couldn't get above a C on tests

GEOL 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

So, so, so, SO sweet! She's obsessed with geology, so she gets really into it, but her exams are pretty straightforward. She moves a little fast sometimes, but its not ridiculous. The lab is fun and there's a lot of easy grade boosters, like weekly vocal quizzes online. Great class!

GEOL 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took this class as a geology major, so I was very willing to study hard for this class, which it seems other non-major reviewers were not. That being said, Cindy is a great lady and a fun professor. Her passion for the class is always evident, even in a 200+ student class. The tests aren't easy, but the material is interesting and useful.

GEOL110L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Great professor, but didn't cover enough. Course isn't just for geneds, go take GSCI if you want a gened. Could do more and do it faster, but oh well.
