ENG 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very easy class. All he does is talk during lecture, but he is an overall very sweet guy and a generous grader. Textbooks are used rarely in and out of class (you can most likely get by without them.)

Real sweet guy who is interested in what you've got to say but his classes are so so dry and pointless. 5 papers. pretty easy, but he takes attendance and then just kinda sits and asks everyone questions. hardly ever used textbooks. real nice guy. real easy class. boring.

This class is a joke!!! I use to get D's and F's on mostly all my papers in high school. On my first 2 papers i have gotten an A & B with bare minimum effort. He also is very helpful. If you have to take this class, I highly reccomend this professor.

He was an awesome professor, not too big on content, but make sure grammar is perfect. He will go over your paper with you if you have questions, seriously TAKE HIM, only downfall sometimes he keeps you in class for no reason.

Great teacher! My favorite so far at Bradley. Very interested in students and tries to help a lot. He's pretty goofy, but funny. He's also a very easy prof. and does not assign a lot of papers and gives a fair amount of time between each. Take him!

Super nice guy! Very easy class and not much effort is required. You can use your high school papers if you want. He does make you stay the entire class period, and class can get boring but its an easy A. Talks about the most random things, but its funny sometimes. Take him if you have the chance, despite the fact that its a boring class.

Recommended. Goofy Guy. Easy class, but BORING. It's been three weeks since I had to do anything outside of class. Class is an absolute waste. Just use your high school papers.

Waste of time. Made us stay the whole class period and come every single day no matter what. Easy grader, but class was a joke. Avoid it unless you want a blow-off, also his indecisiveness is annoying.

Such a nice man. For the most part he is an easy grader, but he is a grammar nazi! He takes off a lot for grammar. Overall very easy. The only bad thing is that he keeps you for the entire class period even if theres nothing to do...

He's an awesome guy. He's a pretty easy grader, if you put forth an effort. I really enjoyed the class. Try really hard on your first paper and then you're in. He's really nice and likes to talk to his students. Definetly take him.

His quirks and idiosyncracies make him funny and class is worthy coming to just to watch that though sometimes it may become a bit boring. The papers are short, 3-5 pages, and do not take much effort.
