PHIL 119 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Inspirational" "Hilarious" "Would take again"

Best Prof I've ever taken at Suffolk. She's laid back, if you go to class and listen to her lectures and rants, you'll get a good grade. She gives out exams way ahead of time and in her lecture she gives you all of the answers. I would take her again if I could

PHIL 119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I honestly found it hard to follow Professor Giancola. It was almost impossible to tell what was relevant class content and what was a tangent. I love professors who are passionate about the subject they teach but its hard to discern what is her personal opinion and what is course content.

Best professor i've ever had! I must say her class is very entertaining and if you show up to class you'll get an A. If you get lower than a B in her class you should just drop out of college!

ethic654 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Best teacher I've ever had in my entire life. I had no intrest whatsoever coming into the class but now I can't wait to go to every class. She makes you think of new things and talks to you like an equal. She is funny, swears, lets you out early, explains everything, somewhat a hippie, overall amazing.

PHIL119 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I'm was a freshman in a class of all seniors for her Ethics class and it was amazing! As long as you have a brain in your head, your own opinion, and you attend class and just listen, you're guaranteed an A. There is a lot of reading, but she goes over everything in class so if you miss a reading, no big deal. 3hr class, only 1hr 1/2.

Donna is the best teacher I have EVER had in my entire career as a student. I feel completely enlightened every single time I leave her class, and she's so fun and easy going. It's very hard not to pay attention to her during lectures; she's brilliant and her intelligence is truly captivating. LOVE HER.

Ancient Phil Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A good teacher for people with a marginal interest in philosophy, but her classes are too full and they always get dragged down to the level of the people who understand the material least. You won't spend alot of time discussing actual philosophical ideas; much of it gets spent on super-simplified digest versions of great philosphies.
