The material was presented clearly and everything was easy to understand. Exams were not difficult. A bit of a pushover, but a great guy by all means. I had a lot of fun despite all of the rude students in the class. I'd take it again just for fun.

For a morning class, Marv tries to make it as fun/interesting as possible. There are 4 exams(more like quizzes because they're so easy), and he drops the lowest. Questions come from the notes (Don't buy the textbook!) He includes a few questions from news stories discussed in class, so pay attention. Come to class on time, or he'll mark you absent.

Nice guy, easygoing. One paper plus 4 exams which are all easy, multiple choice, and noncumulative. Took 108 with him and figured I would take 200 with him for an easy A as well. No homework, definitely don't need the book. Definitely take the green notes, the questions on the exam come directly from the notes. I'd take another class with him.

Okay if you want a class that will complement your GPA take his class. He's funny as hell and as long as you show up and take the notes you will have an A. I never once touched the text book. oh and he drops the lowest test grade.

Marv is a great guy!Class is super easy as long as you attend, which you have to if you want a good grade (you can only miss 2 b4 you lose points). 4 noncumulative tests, including the final and they are only 20 mc. You get to watch a lot of clips in class and the tests are comprised of what you see and the notes and what he bolds in green.

This class was very easy with Marv. All of the notes you take in class are direct questions on his test. He's not the least bit boring. Its a fun class and entertaining class. This is the guy to take Intro to Mass Media with.

Really easy class as long as you take notes, tests questions are taken almost directly from what is on the power points. You don't need to read the book, don't bother buying it. Marv is kind of an awkward guy to talk to, but he is energetic and outgoing during class. Definitely an easy grade for GE

Whoever said he is hot is completly mistaken first off, secondly, Into to Media was the easiest class with him. Powerpoints/lectures all class, points out exactly what to write down then 90% of his tests are exactly what he said was important- other 10% was info from newstories and guest speakers.

Marv is a great guy, he cares about you, and he reaches out when given the opportunity. His notes are clear. Green notes are all you write down. Take him if taking anything, he wants you to do good.

Marv is such a great guy. He's so quirky, kind of an oddball, does his best to make class interesting. Barely any work, I never used my book,just 3 exams and attendance is mandatory. He's quite a character, I'm already planning to take another class with him and I definitely recommend him as a professor.

Marv is a nice guy, there are 3 tests and a final. You need to go to class, but if you pay attention you may not need to use the textbook. Highly recommend him, good man, knows his stuff.

This man is amazing. He honestly cares about his students. Class sometimes gets a little boring but he tries to make it fun. He shows lots of videos and clips as examples. He also tells you whats on every test. He is also a very easy grader. Oswego is lucky to have a man like this. I would take more classes with him if he tought more. Trust me.

best teacher ever, loves the subject. Marv is so nice and really cool. Don't miss class. Class is not that bad. All test is based of notes in class. Don't buy book. His classes are informative enough. Test are easy just study notes and you will be fine. 1 paper and one ec paper. Also he is super cute and cartoon like. Take his clas!
