"Amazing lectures" "Respected by students" "Would take again"

This is my only class on Fridays or before noon and I still look forward to coming. I was actually planning to drop the class at the beginning of the semester but liked it so much I ended up keeping it. I never have a problem paying attention and actually wish the class was longer. In class discussions are very interesting.

"Inspirational" "Would take again" "Participation matters"

Very passionate about his lectures and uses current media related topics to help us better understand the content. He is very open minded and easy to connect with. Professor Yelle looks to have everyone succeed in his course, and does his best to make sure everyone is heard and understands the materials. Awesome professor, I highly recommend him!

PHI215 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a really nice guy, but very easily got confused with even his own teaching(especially the logic part.) When people asking tricky questions, he can be easily lead astray, even if somebody gives the right explanation. His class was super boring, and gave pop quizzes. I won't recommend taking his class, but if you have to, he is not horrible at least.

REL 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

nice guy but took the course WAY TOO SERIOUSLY. In a 101 level made it like it was a 300 level. Even with reading the book and going to class still not guaranteed to do well. His tests were VERY objective and gives out pop quizzes randomly that don't reflect anything you are reading or being taught. so basically DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS

PHI110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Curses like a sailor and is very opinionated, but overall pretty interesting and keeps you awake. Definitely recommend for an easy, enjoyable class

PHI110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is my only 8 AM and it's the only one I actually look forward to going to! Ben is really fun to listen to and is really helpful with his students! He helped me on my midterm assignment, which wasn't too bad. There's weekly quizzes but they're not that hard and other than that a midterm and final...take this class you won't regret it!

Super easy class and somewhat interesting. Ben likes to push his liberal views but at least teaches the material and all of his test are open book online quizzes with 2 easy projects for the midterm and final. I recommend for the easy grade and subject even if you can't sit through the preaching.

He can't spell for his life, and he's practically useless before he's had his coffee, but his class is fun, and it's worth being awake at 8 in the morning. He manages to teach a subject with a high possibility of being hugely boring in a way that makes it fun and interesting. Not really a serious class, but definitely a good time.
