GLOS 1015W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

I enjoyed this professor and thought this class was fairly easy. I'd take another class with Professor Wolfe. I thought the assigned book was pretty boring though. Professor Wolfe was very helpful and quick to reply to my questions when I e-mailed him.

GLOS 1015W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very challenging but very engaging and interesting. His lectures and our discussions were very abstract but made you think very hard. He was very approachable though and helpful if you ever had any questions or needed something to be explained further. An excellent teacher.

GLOS3422 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This professor wants to help but his guidelines are at best ambiguous. We wrote several papers s and the writing was critiqued very harshly. I normally receive As on papers and did not receive higher than a B on any in this class. He is very particular about grammar. I also didn't learn anything since it was a 3 hr discussion based on our opinion.

Hist3502 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Such a brilliant, inspiring and challenging teacher. Very aware of classroom dynamics, always willing to help, and works to keep discussions lively and relevant. He trusts his students to be deeply engaged and committed, and there is a lot of reading for the course, but it was one of the only ones I've had that supported genuine inquiry.

Great teacher!Very interesting class. Way more philosophical than what I'm use to, but was interesting and new. Definitely one of the best professors I have had. Paper assignments were at times hard to figure out. Grading was very fair.

HIST5993 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I did not even know him at all and he offered to a directed study with me, for a graduate level class that was canceled. He is deeply philosophical and is always open to new ideas. He was good humored and gives good feedback and is quick to realize when he has made a mistake. Don't hesitate to take class with him, you won't regret it.

GLOS3143 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tom is the BEST prof at the U. Hands down! Took Mod European Hist with him as well. He is extremely helpful outside of class and just fun to talk to. Lectures are interesting and engaged. Don't be afraid to ask questions! Use original thought and back up your opinions with facts in the papers and you'll get an A. Don't miss Professor Wolfe!!!!!!!!!

HIST3719 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Engaged, engaging teacher, experimental, passionate. Four conversations outside class, wrote plans. Several weeks to figure out what he was really looking for. Values critical thinking, careful reading, text analysis. Sometimes puzzled by grading on papers and comments. Lots of group work, fewer lectures. Learned a lot, looked forward to class.
