histoy 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C+

I liked his class. Not really hard. The curve wasn't in my favor. It was hard to go to class for a 8am but he's good. I recommend.

Hist 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very interesting professor. I loved having him. He made getting up for an 8 AM lecture the best that it could be. Careful about having a borderline grade in his class. He cheated me out of an A- by less than half a percent. Would consider taking courses with him again.

Mike is an awesome professor! He makes the material easy to understand which is nice. He really relates to college students well and for taking the course online, he always responded to emails promptly. He offered really helpful feedback which was nice too. Great professor!

Hist102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Faeth is undoubtedly one of the best professors at UWSP. History 102 is a great gen-ed but don't take it if you want an easy A. There is a one page essay due every week and you pretty much have to go to lecture to get an A but lecture is great. The final is hard and use note cards.

HIST102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely one of, if not the best professors I have had at UWSP. Mike is so clear and the lectures are very involving. The class is very easy if you take notes on your computer and essentially quote what he is saying for every topic so you don't miss important facts because he moves fast. Great class and definitely take it, the 2.5 hours fly by.

HIST364 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I would recommend this class with this professor to every history major! He makes a depressing topic (the Holocaust)into a vibrant discussion and makes all of his students feel as though they have a voice!!

Hist176 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very easy class. Lectures are discussion based, which makes it fun to attend class. Mike is a good professor and will help you any way he can. Show up to class, express your opinions every once in a while, glance through assigned readings, spend time writing quality papers, and this class will be an easy A/B.

Hist176 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This teacher made us rent a textbook we never used. Some of the readings are difficult, but keep up because if you don't when it is time when you have to write one of the 5 papers you write for the semester you will be behind. He is a bit irritating, but tries to keep the class interested. The paper questions are very broad and a bit challenging.

HIST176 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He really knows what he is talking about. He keeps things interesting by adding a few jokes and little anecdotes. Attendance is not necessarily mandatory, however he gives random attendance checks when attendance looks scarce for that day. DOES NOT USE textbook, which is nice to not have to carry around. highly recommend!

He is a very fun professor. He can be cynical but in a funny way. He really wants students to learn how to write so he assigns 5 out of 7 response papers. Overall, I would take his class again. FUN GUY!
