Patricia Dorazio was the worst professor I've ever had in my 6 years of college. She is insulting to her students. She is rude and is not helpful. She is extremely tough and I would not recommend her to anyone. Taking this class as an elective brought down my GPA. I wish I has taken any other course.

Class was difficult. She has absolutely no respect for the learning environment. She comes from the business world, IBM to be specific, and she expects you to be an expert in the class before taking it. She is more than able to tell you whats wrong but unable to help you learn the right way to do things. Do yourself a favor and take this elsewhere.

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

Pat gave me high marks, which I did work my butt off for. Nevertheless, she is, in my opinion, a horrible person who loves to belittle and demean students. The workload in all her classes is absurd, but it's her attitude that sucks the most. Also plenty of bragging about how wonderful she is and how stupid everyone else is. BEWARE!

Took her classes in 09 to 2010 as a CID major, it took a lot of time, patience, dedication, and drive to pass her classes; especially the mandatory ones. Its true what everyone has said to some degree, but to be honest it really takes someone that is willing to make mistakes to pass her class that includes failing it and retrying. 2010 CID alumni

ENG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is the worst teacher or person that I have ever had the miserable misfortune to meet. DO NOT EVER TAKE A CLASS WITH HER. You will most likely fail and if not, she will still make you want to kill yourself. She is rude and stops students mid-sentence to riddle the classroom with insults. Her grading is impossible and shegives insulting remarks.

The most arrongant person Ive ever met she thinks that she is the**** in the school, on top of everyone and never listen to her own students, she actully does not give a damn about you or anyone, if you are so selfish why you would become a teacher?

When L Frank Baum wrote the Wizard of Oz he used Dorazio as one of his characters and renamed her the Wicked Witch of the West. She is impressed with herself. Students & classes are an inconvenience in her day. Don't bother going to her with questions, concerns, or problems. It will make things worse on you. The work is doable, but ambiguous. Witch

She needs a man, therefore she takes her frustration out on the students. Don't think about complaining about her; she's tenured, thefore they won't do a damn thing to her. You would that since SUNYIT is now accredited by AACSB, they will pay more attention to students' concern...WRONG!She is the worst. AVOID HER, AVOID HER, AVOID HER.

I never withdraw any class, I always was able to understand what a teacher wants from me except her. She cannot teach. Do not take her ever simply because when the whole class misunderstands the assigment - "IT IS NOT HER FAULT!", so do your conclusions based on this.

She is tough as nails, assigns alot of work, and expects much more than what she teaches. But she also prepares students for the real world and pushes us to the limits of our capability, then some. Shes tough, but a fine professor. Finishing her class is a clear accomplishment.

i dont know what you guys are talking about. I had her back in 2004 and even though she was fairly hard she was fair. She taught from real life experience. One of the best teachers ive ever had....and i was comp sci so she wasnt even part of my major.

Im am currently taking her online class. She is a straight up B****H. She talks down on the students if they ask her a question. If you can take this class w/ someone else, by all means DO JUST THAT! Avoid her if you can. Oh yea, she very very very RUDE. I think that she is very unhappy, and takes her anger out on the class.

In her online class and I would like to agree with EVERYONE WHO THINKS SHE IS A HORRIBLE PERSON..none the less teacher as well. You can deffinatly tell that she is stuck on herself and SHE LOVES to BELITTLE students in front of everyone so everyone can see it. Also she has no due dates on any of her online assignments so i guess i just have to gues

The only teacher in the CID/Pro Tech Comm dept. that knows their head from their ass. Nonetheless she's the best by default but the material learned in her class is useless mostly. Her teaching style is, hey get in a group while I go sit in my office.

She is high on herself and brags a lot about herself and how wonderful her and her attorny family is. The class didn't get underway for weeks into the semester. We had to wait for the German students to start their sessions in Germany. We then were paired up with the worst mix of students for a semester long group project. Sabotaged by her choices.

To anyone that is going into the CID program, I suggest going undeclared until your junior year and then taking COM 306 with another teacher. She does not clearly state what she wants and is very hard in grading. I thought of transferring out of the program and out of the school just because of her.

While she is not bad looking for her age, she seems upset that she is still single. After having a class with her i can see why. I have seen pictures of her on faceboook she likes to party
