Hum 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had Wally 29 years ago and have gone on to earn three graduate degrees, but he still stands out as among the best professors/mentors I've had. He goes beyond the text to give you the context and shows respect for student ideas. Simply the best

Wally is absolutely amazing. Taking a class with him is a total joy. He is engaging, intelligent and clearly cares about the class and his students. My writing has grown immensely with his help. I'm so happy to have had the privilege of being his student.

Extremely helpful. He's not as demanding as other professors, but you're still working since you never want to let him down. He's as kind as your own grandfather.

Greek110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wally is one of the nicest men I know, and is the reason I became committed to being a Classics major! He somehow managed to fit a thorough explanation of material, homework review, and interesting facts about Greek language/culture into each 50 minute class! He is extremely caring and easy to talk to. His explanations of material are exquisite.

HUM110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Wally's class was a disappointment. Certain students are favored by him, and interesting, they are all women. Wally will give you extensions if you oversleep deadlines if he likes you, but shows no mercy if you are one of the less fortunate ones he picks on. He clearly lets his biases get in the way of his teaching. Thumbs down.

HUM110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Wally is a recognized expert in the field, having done some of the standard translations out of Greek and Latin. He's also a total sweetheart and amazingly helpful. I was thrilled to be in his section of Hum 110 and would definitely take another class with him.

Hum 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wally was the perfect person to have as a prof. for this class - he knows it all and he is probably the niceset person on Reed campus at all times. And he sings in ancient greek, what's not to love?
