ANTH 3003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Rude to students with questions, dry speech, rambles. Easy class but not good professor!

ANTH 3003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Lipset keeps class interesting with his dry humor and is very approachable. He reiterates the most important points too so his lectures are pretty easy to follow even though he didn't use slides.

ANTH 1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had to take this as a Lib Ed requirement freshman year. Yes, the three hour long classes on Wednesday nights weren't fun, but I liked his division of class time. A lot of people probably didn't like him because they simply didn't care about the class, but I found him to be a pretty cool guy. Basically, if you can read and retain, you'll be fine.

ANTH3003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Lipset does indeed ramble and uses course readings to interject dry jokes during his lectures. The man seems uneasy, and seems like he is being 'bothered' while lecturing. Overall the class is what you make of it.

Prof lipset's sarcastic dry sense of humor and monotone voice may turn some off; however his class proved to be fairly interesting. The assignments weren't bad and the tests had study guides. If you need the class take it. However if you are looking for an elective, this may not be the interesting class you are looking for

Overall, good professor. His lectures often went well with the readings in the textbook. He makes it clear what you need to know for the tests and other assignments. Easy class as well, but still makes you think.

ANTH001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Lipset has proved to be an excellent professor. He is not at all the monster he has been projected to be here. I have enjoyed having him for a professor. He is just a tad intimidating but almost anyone in a position of authority can be. He does reject proposed answers in search of the correct one! I think he try's and that's encouraging.

ANTH1003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A little bit awkward in his way of presenting information, but he's a funny guy and obviously knows a ton. TAs graded everything and you watch a lot of movies.

Overall a pretty good professor. His lectures are interesting and he adds in stories of his own experiences. The tests aren't too bad and you automatically get points just for showing up to class and participating in Active Learning Assignments.
