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.

His class is fun and inspiration. I learned more from this class than any others. A friendly professor and made education fun rather than hard. Highly recommend.

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.

I had him my first semester of my freshmen year(Fall 2012) and it was so relaxing to just go in his class and openly talk about issues in today's society. If you are able to get this class with him or any class with him..Then DO IT! You will not go wrong. :)

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. He also likes to tell stories about his life and really cares if you learn. He's available to help students and also gives extra credit. He also keeps you updated with all diversity events.

This class was a joke but VERY easy. He gives a lot of extra credit and the tests are open book. If you are looking for an easy A take this class.

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.

Vang Xiong is quite a cool guy. He has an accent, but he really cares and will explain; he jokes a lot. He is easy to please and worth your time. He does cool things like give days off. Definitely worth your time. You will NOT be disappointed.
