SOCL 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great class to take and very interesting. She is extremely clear in lectures and for what she expects on exams. Although class attendance is not mandatory, I do recommend going as a lot of the documentaries/discussions pop up on exams.

SOCL 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Professor Washburn is a great professor. Sociology is a very broad subject, however, she does a great job at explaining material and her lectures and documentaries she shows truly help you and sink in if you pay attention. I would recommend her.

SOCL100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is so nice and funny! Her classes were really fun but she doesn't take attendance and I rarely went to classes during the end which didn't effect my grade at all. There's barely ever homework and for her tests, she gives you complete study guides! I recommend her!

SOCL398 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Washburn is amazing! I'm in her class now & I have no negative criticism. She's very interested in everything she brings up & is willing to help all the time. She requires a few 2 page reviews on readings but it's not hard. gives study guides & has a study session b4 the test. If you do bad, it's because you're an idiot. Im taking her next semester

SOC100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is really boring, but attendance isn't mandatory. You don't ever need to do the readings. To get an A, you need to do well on the midterm and the final - which is possible with rote memorization of the terms given on the study sheet - and do well on the analysis paper which you should start about a week early and go to her office hours.

She is truly amazing. Very nice and understanding. She focuses on teaching main ideas and doesn't get too bogged down on the details like most teachers. Unlike most teachers...she truly cares about her students and is concerned about their well-being given how stressul college is. Take Washburn you wont regret it.

She is great. She is fairly new so she is very interested in input from her students and trying new activities. I took her into to Socio class. Paper was fairly easy and she give study guides and study sessions before the midterm and final.
