SOC 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Jacob Armstrong is by far one of the best instructors I've ever had. The course was not easy, but the way it is setup really allows students to excel and learn. I firmly believe it was this difference that gave me a better understanding of Sociology in the long run. I wish all of my instructors were as enthusiastic and passionate as Jacob.

Absolutely loved this class! The way it was set up made it easy to know what I had to get done each week. The prezi lectures also had videos that made it easier to understand things we were reading about.

Soc 101 Online Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

This class really exceeded my expectations! I really enjoyed opening my eyes to learning to think more like a sociologist rather than just an observer. Mr. Armstrong brought up different ideas I never thought of, and that's what's most important in learning!

Sociology 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Would NOT recommend taking this course in the summer; LOTS of work each week and I had nothing but issues with the required download component. Professor was somewhat helpful, returned emails quick.

Great teacher, he is passionate about his class which made me love it more. And to top it off he is hilarious! Easy book work, loved the videos he had for us to watch. If he taught more classes I'd take all of them

Pretty fun class. You DO have to read the book though. Lots of videos that explain the ideas in the book. Exams were done online too.

SOCY-101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

I went into this class with little to no understanding of what Sociology is. I'm coming out considering majoring in Sociology. I'm very glad this course was offered. It is an important subject to study. The material was very informative, and the information I was given in this course has and will continue to be useful throughout my every day life.

social problems Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

He seems to be a quite the liberal, he tries to be a comedian more than teach the class. He will not help you if you have a problem nor will he give you an explanatory email. Do not take this class unless you are independent and love doing lots of work.

SOC-101 007 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A+

He is clear with what you need to know and explains it so you remember it. He also gives lots of extra credit so you can drop a couple of assignments if you need to focus on another class. Do you reading outlines and you will be ready for tests. Be careful and have facts if you are religious. The book and the teacher are anti-religious values.

Sociology 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a great professor, wasn't sure how he was going to be in the first two weeks since he appeared to be kinda strict and tough, but after the first few weeks he opens up. If you do your reading outlines you can easily pass.

Socy 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of the least effective teachers I've had. Doesn't know how to get the class engaged. That could be because he is condescending. Didn't enjoy this class; Usually left feeling a bit angry. Text book is very far to the left. I can't say I trust what I've learned to be completely accurate, but the class did get me thinking & questioning more.

Soc238 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Jake did very well with giving us info that was related to the subject to help us connect with our own lives. But I can not recommend him. There was a lot of busy work. Syllabus was not updated until you were doing it. No time to plan out your work in conjunction with the rest of your life. Had no idea what to study for with exams.

Summer class had a heavy workload, but it was very well organized. First two weeks were hard, but once I got into the groove, the workload was easier to handle. Great instructor - highly recommended.

A wonderful professor to take online. Most online classes are impersonal and Professor Armstrong takes the time to make videos and find videos that really help explain the information. Wonderful class!
