CSERW391 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Took multiple classes with Professor De Genova. He is, without a doubt, one of the best professors Columbia has ever seen. His scholarly work is exemplary and his commitment to his discipline and the development of his students in unparalleled. Even after leaving, he is still in touch and continues to help through graduate school!

I had the pleasure of taking Professor Nicolas De Genova's Latin History & Culture course. I thought he was a fantastic professor! I do not think he is anti-american at all! He was very helpful and approachable, also I guess it helped that he is easy on the eyes.

very interesting course. he let the seminar do the talking, so he wasn't putting any of his own view on us-- he picked very interesting readings and very approachable when it comes to assignments and office hours

You have the opportunity to study with one of the most intelligent people - go register - you are missing out. Forget the hype and go with an open mind. If the world doesn't look different, something is wrong with you.

he was a great professor! People who bash him usually did bad in the class or did not really understand the purpose of his teachings. His work might be consider controversial, but he is very informative and refreshing.

one of the best professors I have encountered in academia. his scholarly work is outstanding, his teaching commited,his commentaries on papers is comprehensive and reflect his dedication. the negative comments of others are clearly politically motivated. He does make his politics clear, but theres no need to worry if you don't agree.
