Really, a great teacher. Prof. Nickowitz is very approachable and ready to help. Though he can be unclear, if he is asked, he will explain. The class is not easy, but is very manageable with some effort. He is very opinionated, which can get in the way of his teaching. However, he is open to reasoning. I do recommend this professor.

He tries hard to make the students interested, though his lectures can be boring. He is very knowledgable about film and poetry, but not as much with literature. Overall he is a nice guy that will help you out if you ask and he grades very fairly.

WRIT3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Taking this professor was the WORST decision of my life. He's judgmental, unclear, boring, and inexperienced. Has no idea how to teach a college-level writing class and gives LSP a bad rep for having dumb teachers. Laughs at his own lame jokes, it's really awkward. Stick to Sean Eve for a challenging writing class- he's the best there is.
