Donna is excellent! She lets you know exactly what she expects in assignments and has flexible due dates. She treats her students with respect and courtesy. I really learned a lot from her class and can't wait to take another course with her!

Donna is a great teacher, connecting well with her students and acknowledging that they have a life outside of school. She does a midterm and take-home final test that if you review for, you should do perfectly well. Interesting class discussions make you want to keep coming to class! Just do your work and your golden.

soc300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I found her to be unclear regarded class assignmets. You go to her for help and she wouldn't give defined answer on anything. Too out there for me. Also, She does have her favorites.

Great teacher, she makes learning fun and really tries to get everyone involved. Only two tests during the semester and you go over the questions that will be on it the day before.

soc355 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Anyone who puts in the effort will receive an A+ with Donna. She uses blackboard which I love. She is crystal clear about everything that's due or needs to be done and has straight forward comprehensive rubrics on blackboard for every assignment. She does expect a lot from you, but is completely reasonable with deadlines and gives reminders often.

Donna is very understanding when having a hard time for whatever reason. I had a few rough patches because of stuff going on but she allowed extentions in such cases.

How wonderful is she? Take the class and she'll let you know. E-mail works well but office hours are limited to none. I think that she is more concerned with shmoozing with management to have time to meet with her students. Sorry, but I would not reccomend this professor!
