Bio in the News is a super easy class. She does seem to do a bit more for a gen ed, but it's manageable.

This was not that difficult of a class. There was a lot of material, but tests came pretty much straight from the study guides she gives at the end of each lecture. People complained about having to know so many different types of bacteria, but I don't know what they were expecting from a class on microbial diversity.

I can definitively say that this is the worst teacher I have ever encountered in my 16 years of education. Her lectures aren't very clear at all. Be afraid to ask questions, because she'll treat you like you're stupid if you do. Her exams are impossible.

She is a very nice and passionate teacher. And this is where the problems stem. She wants her students to know and love her subject as she does, unfortunately the "subject" could have its own jeopardy show. Learn every microorganism in every environment! It should be easier next semester and the book is useless because you read so many journals

It is important to note that she is a first-time teacher. The class is incredibly difficult, however, I think she really means well and really knows her stuff. Sometimes she assumes we know far more than we actually know (this can be very frustrating). Visit her during office hours and she's actually quite nice, she just has very loft expectations.

This class is hard. To be fair though, this was her first year teaching. Her powerpoint slides have improved and she tries to make the class interesting. Next Fall she's giving 3 test so it's not as overwhelming, the research paper is getting cut to 6 pages, and she's giving more quizzes (grade buffer). Take the class, it'll be easier next spring!

There isn't much else to add for the awfulness that is Dr. Campbell except that she is condescending and judgmental especially during her review classes when you ask questions.

Do not take this class. She takes what should be an interesting topic and absolutely muddies the waters. Her lectures are confusing, inconsistent, and written by another professor. Her tests are incredibly difficult with no help or guidance beforehand. Do not take this class, it will piss you off daily.

She is the worst teacher I have ever had at Clemson. I leave class every day seething because she is so confusing. She expects us to already know way more than we actually do. She is pretty much incoherent when she lectures. Avoid this class because your patience will be tested and your GPA will suffer.

Wasn't crazy about this class. Wish I could have avoided it. Most of it seemed unnecessary, and we had to learn many very similar sounding concepts that were poorly explained.

This was by far my the worst professor I've had at Clemson. The class was miserable, and she has no idea how to teach. She is horribly disorganized, terrible at communicating ideas, very vague with her assignments, and worst, an unfair tester and grader. No professor has ever caused such a strong negative reaction in me. Avoid LIKE THE PLAGUE

The words bane of my existence do not begin to describe this class. This is the most frustrating class that I have ever taken. DON'T TAKE IT UNLESS YOU HAVE TO. She does NOT know how to teach and the class is disorganized and boring. She also makes everything complicated and way harder than it should be. I have never disliked a teacher this much.

Good God, run for your life. She is, without a doubt, the worst teacher I have had in my undergraduate carrier. For those of you who have to take her, may God have mercy on your soul. I would compare her PowerPoints to an ancient Chinese manuscript; it's literally word vomit. Her grading policies are outrageous. AVOID THIS TEACHER AT ALL COSTS.
