THA-V29 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Personally I think he's a nice and funny guy but as an instructor he has issues. He is knowledgable but always goes on old man rants. He also puts people into awkward conversations which are historically offensive. My one major gripe is how unorganized he is. He forgets EVERYTHING! His quiz's are easy but so dull and vague.

THA-V31A-31465 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

I would not recommend taking this class from this Professor. He puts down students at random and is very disorganized. He goes off topic so often that what he says does not make sense. Has a tendency to make women in class uncomfortable. I would not recommend this class from this Professor.

THA V29 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Jay is not the greatest teacher but certainly the worst. He does lecture for a large portion of class time but it is about films. In the class we watch several movies. Quizzes and final are take homes and are very easy. The midterm is in class but gives out study guide before hand. Dull class but manageable.

THA V01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Jay tends to give out grades that are not based up points. He goes off on tangents and that don't relate to the class or the topic. He has also been reported for harassment, but nothings been done. I recommend taking this class with a different teacher.
