Hands down the best professor of all time. He is extremely passionate about sociology and he truly wants the best for his students. I love him. Class wasn't easy, it was challenging, but it was a good challenging in a way where you wanted to learn more.Highly recommend taking Crane, I truly was blessed to have him as a professor.

Crane, without a doubt, is the best soc prof at RVC. I loved his class. He really knows his stuff. He was energetic and I loved the conversational style of the class. He always encouraged discussion. I took the class in the summer and it was a breeze. The research paper was kind of difficult though.

I love Crane, not only is he an amazing teacher but a really good down to earth man. Do your work, pay attention, and be respectful and you will earn his respect. Loves his job, and his students who actually try. Earned a B and worked my butt off for it too. He is willing to help, if you are willing to ask. :)

Had no true interest in Sociology until I took his Intro course, now I love it, and am actually thinking of minoring in it when I transfer to University. Amazing professor. Highly recommend.

I absolutly loved crane. I learned more in that one class then I did in any other. He is a brilliant mind, and easy on eyes. He is always there to help you understand. As long as you show up and are respectful he will show you respect as well. Be prepared to be randomly called on in class though. Take him, you wont regret it!!!:)

Took this class by mistake though I had to take it. He was very helpful and fun. He made an otherwise boring class interesting. In the very short amount of time there was. He got me thinking and using critical thinking even though the class material was a joke.

Hard class. I studied more than I ever had for a class and still only managed a B. (very disappointing) Class content is interesting and his lecture was entertaining but he tries hard to change the wording in test questions to confuse you, which makes recognizing terms and theories difficult. His grading of research papers is suspicious as well.

I would not recommend taking this class. He seems to be very passionate, but he doesn't make himself clear. There's not a lot of homework, but he assigns two assignments throughout the year, with 1 of them being an 8-10 page paper. I personally did not like his attitude. His tests are kind of bogus as well. Make sure you know how to write essays!

Very hard class! Should not be mandatory. He is very passionate about what he teaches but is sorta scattered while teaching it. He knows exactly what he wants from you but I don't think he knows how to explain it very well.

I learned a lot but struggled the whole time. This class seemed much more advanced than an introductory level and I think he expected way too much. He is very knowledgeable but a little hard to approach and comes off as dismissive at times. Be prepared for hard work!

He was extremely passionate about the subject. He speaks very quickly so paying attention is key. He didn't use a textbook for my class. Just two books that we had to read for book reviews. I would take him in my second year if I had to because he requires a lot of dedication that most freshman do not have yet.
