I have to agree with others. Just took his class this spring semester and love it. He is awesome and 100% for students. Great lecture and great personal life stories. The fun part is listening to his real life stories and apply to the reading. He will make you think and appreciate life more. Take his class if you get the chance. You won't regret.

ETH 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He's probably one of the coolest professors you'll ever have. He teaches but usually gets distracted and then tells many many stories. That's the great part! It makes time in his class go by very fast. He's really easy and wants you to get a good grade. He's super nice and laid back. If you ever get the chance, take his class. You won't regret it.

It's an intro class to help broaden students understanding of different racial and ethnic groups. Go in with an open mind and maybe you'll learn the culture, issues and manners of people "not like you".

What a great professor! He makes you think about diverse society and at the same time look at your own world view. I very enjoy his personal journey story. Easy class but could be hard if you miss the lecture for exams. I actually like his style of teaching rather than other instructors. He makes thing flexible in class.

Class is very easy if you do the work. Gives 5 assignments, various class worksheets, 2 exams and 1 research paper. Lectures can get boring but he means well.

1-2 page papers, and he basically gives you the answers for the exams. Never got an email back from him. It is incredibly hard to understand what he says because of the accent, but the class is pretty easy.
