HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is mean, and even had an argument with a student in class once. Terrible public speaker, gives way too much work for a 101 class, and always seems grouchy. Please avoid this one.

HIST360C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

TOO MUCH READING! Grade based on just two tests and participation. Do the FLO it'll help your grade. Never responds to e-mails and seems to play favorites in the class (not with grades, but with discussion/lectures). Lectures were alright...kinda scattered. Good use of multi-media though! She's always late to class. Take it, though. You learn a lot

She is the best professor I have ever had in college so far. Amazing at speaking and engaging the class, as well as making the topics interesting and relevant. It's clear that she loves history and loves teaching.

HIST360B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is an intelligent person, but HORRIBLY unorganized! She struggles to get her point across. She required SEVEN books in this course, including a book which was 700 pages long, and expects you to read ALL of them. She doesn't understand we have OTHER CLASSES! The class had potential, but I didn't learn ANYTHING!

Benita is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She's challenging & expects a lot from students. Her lectures are fast paced & contain an ample amount of information. She loves what she does & tries to be on top of everything in her field. Extremely smart & fun. Had readings/responses every week & had to lead one discussion (it wasn't bad at all)

Women Warriors Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Awesome class! She's extremely dynamic, obviously loves what she teaches, and works hard to challenge the class. Lots of reading, daily summaries/journals that are a bit of a pain but worth it. Go to all the classes, keep on top of the work--and you'll be fine. One of my fav. classes and profs thus far--take her if you can!

A-Mazing! Definatley one of the coolest teachers I've ever had. She's so down to earth you feel like you're hangig out with one of your friends. Talk really fast but clearly. You defiatley need to put some work into this class but it's worth it.

HIST 123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher very interested in subject at hand. Tests were pretty easy, there is a lot of weekly reading and writing but pretty easy and interesting. Very approachable out of class and easy to get along with. Hard to get use to her fast paced lectures at first but once you get the hang of them you learn to love them. Great!!

Had last quarter- awesome class, very interesting but spoke very fast. Had an awesome grade, loved the midterms and the books- except History of Europe. Liked the writing assignments, they helped a lot! Great class!

Blessing was very helpful. I have some issues with my exam and she worked it out with me. Also I found her lectures interesting but a little unoraginized. Her exams are hard, but make sure you do good on the essays they are a large part of your grade.

"One can learn a lot"? Kind of makes you wonder who wrote that review. She was okay, but not that good.

Dr. Blessing is the best. She is incredibly smart and she has really high standards. That might be intimidating to some, but one can really learn a lot from her. Top notch prof!

Hist 368B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Despite required attendance, the overall class is wonderful. She uses movie clips, pictures from books, maps, etc. to illustrate her lectures. She moves at a quick speed, especially when she's had caffeine. If you work hard and pay attention, you can easily receive an A in the class!

smarts aside, Blessing is the most self-pitying prof I have ever seen. Can be sharp and abrasive. Only prof I know who will smiles at those she hates
