I took 5 classes with Professor Brown before he retired. He made my time at IC! I have become such a better writer and analytical reader as a result of his guidance. It's too bad he is no longer around

I had the opportunity to take 2 classes with Prof. Brown and think that I got a lot out of it. I never got straight how he wanted his essays written but, if you are willing, he lets you try again and again. The message: have faith in yourself, keep trying. Who cares what he taught me about US HISTORY, those lessons are valuable enough.

Mr. Brown is a wonderful professor. Takes a personal interest in his students and is happy to meet with you. Explains matter well, engages the class even at eight in the morning and is absolutely fascinating to talk to. I'm really sorry to see him go. Demands "organized and coherent" essays.

Amazing professor. Smart, nice, funny, cares about you. Really easy too, once you adjust to the way he likes his essays. And you can revise the essays too, but you won't have to after the first one.

GREAT PROF! I highly recommend taking a class with him before he retires! He really cares about the students and is very interested in the subject matter. I will be sad to see him go.

He really knows his stuff. And he lets you rewrite your paper as many times as you want which is awesome but can be frustrating at times. He is funny at times and quite nice.

Prof Brown was a very nice guy and extrememly helpful whenever I needed him. However, most of my class ended up rewriting papers numerous times because of his particular style and we found it to be extrememly frustrating.

Richard Brown is awesome. His class was interesting and he REALLY knows the subject he teaches. I'd recommend taking an upper-level class with him like slavery and the union, if you can.

Professor Brown is one of the gems at IC. Take a course with him if you can. I was in only one class with him and he still remembers me.
