CLAS160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of my fav professors...he's INCREDIBLY knowledgable about ancient civilizations. He's laid back, approachable, funny, and helpful if you get confused. Just skimming the textbook readings works (he wont test you on them), but you'll need to refer to it for the essays...he grades them hard. Not a blow-off class (i took honors) but very enjoyable!

Clas201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hard Essay Grader. He knows what he wants and unless you follow his method of writing, you'll get a bad grade. Sarcastic and condescending.

CLAS110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a cool guy. His tests can be confusing, but not too difficult. Classes are always lecture and he posts the power points on the net. Helpful guy with a moderately easy class, although it's easy to slip up on an assignment or two and get a B.

ATTIC GREEK 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Classload is moderate to heavy. Tests are explained before hand so you generally know what to study. Assigns a lot of homework and never collects it unless he says it will be graded... Though doing it is very helpful. Lots of memorization. Also it is important to note that he assigns no percentage of grade to class participation, only tests.

Lit/Occult Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Cueva is an awesome professor. He keeps the classes interesting, engages students (A LOT), uses media effectively so that students can relate, and is a very approachable guy. I really enjoyed his class and hope to take another some time soon.

Lit/Occult Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

ive had dr cueva a number of times already and i have discovered there isnt anything he doesnt know about ancient civilizations. he is very articulate and detailed. he is organized and he respects his students. he does his best to get people involved with discussions during class, so be wary. but he tries to inspire people to participate and think analytically about the material. and his dry humor...out of this world.

Classical Comed Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Fun class - just don't be shy about speaking or acting. Tests are hard since he expects you to remember pretty much anything and everything said in class.

One of the best lecturers I've had. Very clear board notes. Very excited about HABs, but glad to have anyone in class. He just wants to get you interested and enjoy the material as much as possible. Not a bad class over all.

Great teacher, even for non-HAB's. He teaches well in the language classes, as well as the Classical Lit. course. He can joke around with the students while still being professional. Great teacher.
