MAR 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This class is such an easy A. She is a really sweet professor and loves what she does. She uses powerpoints but basically tells you what to write. I wouldn't buy or rent the textbook it's never used. Every student does do an oral report on something related to marine biology. Overall it's a really good class.

MAR 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice teacher. Disorganized, but nice; I only found out the grade on my first test. She made the class seem fun, but it was still hard for me, however I'm a student with a learning disability. Somehow I was able to get a B in her class. I would recommend her, but not highly. Her frequent words are "fabulous" and "does everybody understand that."

BIO-130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof P. was awesome. Very funny and brings the scope of to other realms of life by relating real-life examples to what we are learning. Plenty of opportunities to get an A with more than enough bonus points possible on exams. Don't slack off though, especially if you don't have any experience in taking biology classes.

BIO142 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a nice person, VERY unorganized, NEVER to class on time, gets annoyed when you ask questions (unless a male), does not always post lectures & review sheets in the time frame she says she will. Have a final in 5 days and we're still waiting for the review sheet. Use her power points for the tests & you will be fine.

MAR 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She's a very nice teacher. She's lenient when it comes to handing in labs. She's is however very veryyyy unorganized with notes. She goes so fast you don't even have time to copy the notes. She also can get annoying sometimes since she talks too much about herself and is loud

MAR105 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 took Dr. Penncavage's Introduction to Oceanography course this summer, I thought that it was a really good class. I want to major in accounting but if I change my mind, I will most likely major in Marine Biology. I have never been interested in science but she kept her class interesting, and was extremely passionate about her subject.

Mar105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good professor. She knows her subject very well, but my one complaint is that sometimes she isn't very clear and her notes are scattered. However, she will take the time to help you out if you are lost. Very nice woman. Encourages class discussions which can prove to be very interesting.

mar105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher. You go on like 5 or so field trips that ppl think are stupid but its fun and better than stayin in class. Very easy as long as you are there and do the work required. One final project that is super easy on power point as long as you can stand infront of class(one girl cried)
