Be warned if you are looking for an easy A or a GPA booster steer clear. The professor is a great person, but his class is hard and the exams are filled with essays that must be very detailed. If you have trouble with notes or lectures do not take this class!

Grash is the best! She is always happy and a ray of sunshine to my day. Her tests are easy if you are alive and her classes are awesome.

This professor seems nice but in reality can really be brutal. She told all students who did bad on the FIRST TEST( that they should just drop the class (Not a good way to boost student confidence lady). She also told my friend via email that he will probably fail the class even before the final. (Ps, he got a B no thx to her) Very unprofessional.

What a kind, intelligent teacher! Dr. Grash's Art History classes are both intellectually-stimulating and enjoyable. She gives powerpoint slide notes for every chapter, and she has no attendance policy whatsoever (although it's in your best interest to attend every class). Her exams involve a lot of writing, so be sure to study!

This was a best class I have ever taken! Dr. Grash is extremely helpful, nice, and interesting. Everything is taught in class, so it is good to go if you want to know what is going on. Tests are multiple choice and essay. She gives essays before tests, good to prepare them. If you attend class and study for the tests then you will get an A!

Dr. Grash is one of the best professors i have ever had! She really knows what she is talking about and teaches with energy and enthusiasm. She is very interesting to listen to and has a lot to offer. I now go to the Art institute and have not encountered an art teacher as amazing her. I would say she is one of the best professors in the field.

Dr. Grash is an incredibly energetic and informative teacher. She's extremely friendly and welcoming and her class is very interesting. She is very clear on all subjects, her tests are challenging but in a good sense, and she knows her subject material very well. My favorite professor I had for my first semester at UPJ!

Dr. Grash is the best! Although her tests are all essay, she will inform you of the questions at least a week in advance and she is very helpful in telling you exactly what she is expecting in your essays. I would deffinatly recommend her!!!

I LOVE VAL GRASH. She is probably one of THE most interesting people I have ever met in my life. Her lectures are very easy to understand, she is so passionate and helpful, and has a heart of gold. She really knows what she is talking about. Her tests can be a bit tricky, but as long as you study you'll be fine.

It is supposed to be a "freshman level" class and it isnt. She is so boring and ridiculously annoying! Her tests are ridiculous!

The class didn't require much work, as she gives the test questions before the test. One paper/presentation and another short paper. We were basically done a week before classes were over.

Valerie grash is the worst professor at UPJ i have had to date. her tests are harder than my bio and chem classes. i took it as a gen. ed. and it is completely messing my qpa up. the amount of work for the class more than i have ever had. On top of this, when you try to talk to her, there is no reasoning..her way or no way..

Don't be fooled-she is not as easy as some people will claim. The tests are hard, the study guides are useless (basically you should just study everything). Never engages the class, and while she may seem joyful in class, I definitely got the impression it was all an act.
