Lisa Keller is amazing, and you can learn more from her than nearly all the other faculty at Purchase. She is hard, she is tough but she is fair. If you want a real education take one of her classes.

Very very VERY reading intensive, but if you pay attention and do the work you will learn multitudes. She knows a great deal and is incredibly passionate about her field. I'm sure any of the bad ratings were from people who took her class looking for an easy A.

For those who say that she has control issues and is evil haven't given her class the real attention it deserves. If you aren't serious about her class, she WILL call you out. Put pride aside, you will learn a great deal. She has a specific teaching style. If you aren't ready for her fierceness (think judge judy), don't take the class. I love her!

I LOVE HER! She was a kind of strict and intimidating at first but she really makes sure her students do the best they can and understand the material. She also brought in food and coffee and I really enjoyed the class overall, though I would recommend attending every class possible because if not, you may fall behind.

Lisa Keller is a brilliant woman who gets a bad rap for telling it like it is. If she thinks you have done fine work, she will let you know. If she thinks you have done awful work, she will let you know. I personally love her attitude about teaching and found her class to be stimulating, rewarding, and fun.

Dr. Keller is one of the smartest women I have ever met. I graduated in 2005 and still keep in touch with her! Unlike other professors at Purchase, she is tough academically. Once you get to know her as a person she becomes very maternal.

If you want to learn anything about history, feminism, and work ethic in general - Lisa Keller is one to learn from. Yes, she's tough and relentless, but often in a vindicated way. Don't take her classes if you're looking to easily fill a Gen Ed and slide by. Reading is a must, come prepared and you'll be fine.

There's no denying that she's tough, but if you have an open mind, you will LEARN your ass off--both academically and on a personal level.

she used to be my Adviser but all she did was mess up my schedule and my semester! She is a horrible woman who has no idea what she's doing. If you have her as a prof i am so sorry and if you have her as an adviser, SWITCH IMMEDIATLEY!!

She doesn't give anyone the warm fuzzies. She doesn't inspire you to do anything but try not to fail. If you have thick skin though, as i do, you might be able to enjoy her bone dry, maybe a little sadistic sense of humor

I like Prof. Keller, although she can be a very intimidating woman. She has high expectations of her students and if you are ignorant, lazy, or a combination of both, you will hate her and her class.

I usually take RMP ratings with a grain of salt, but beware of Lisa Keller. She is a nasty, vile woman. She doesn't treat any of her students with respect, and is not fit to be an educator. I can understand being harsh on a students work, but to attack them on a personal level is uncalled for and unprofessional. Thank god she's leaving.

All I can say is, RUN, RUN, RUN! Don't even look back. Save yourself from definite torture. Oh, she has her favorites too. They just get a lower level of torture. Participation is a must. If you do she will rip you to pieces, if you don't she sends you to hell. Do NOT take her classes.

I can only describe my strange liking for Lisa as going into a haunted house, you know it's haunted and scary as hell, but you love getting the crap scared out of you, so you keep going back--Oh wait--or like being pegged by a dodge ball in the face numerous times by the school bully until you're so mangled not even your own parents recognize you.

This teacher helps students in no way, the work she assigns are impossible. She tells you something is wrong with the assignment then gives no feedback as to how to fix it. She makes the class so hard and impossible students do not feel they can pass!!!

now i'm not one to speak harshly of anyone, but this woman is simply to evil not to hate. her hateful attitude and general lack of respect for students is appaling. she carries herself with a superior attitude and let's students know its she who's in charge. more interested in controlling content than education this woman should just retire and die

worst professor ever. ask a question, she treats you like an idiot. disagree with her, she'll turn against you. she has piss poor journalistic ethics and if you call her on it, she'll deny it. she's a complete control freak and will flip out if she feels she's losing any control. if you can avoid taking a class with her, do it.

this woman needs to jus calm down. she threw me off the path to journalism with her insane attitude and overly harsh criticsims, which she'd categorize as tough love, but she really is a wretched and vile creature.
