I loved this guy. Yep, he's tough and expects you to work hard on the papers, but he also gave plenty of time, even moving due dates often so that everyone could finish. I wish he weren't retiring, I'd take all of his courses. It's basic english skills, it shouldn't be THAT difficult for a high school graduate!

He is such a hard grader and is never clear in what he wants done. He is always changing due dates without prior notice. He may be funny at times but that doesn't change the fact that he is unfair.

Class lacks all direction and structure. Extremely boring and religios based/preachy.

hough he was entertaining in class, he was not always clear on the various papers' requirements. Also, he had written on a rough draft see me after class, when I met with him he was very unclear at what he wanted or what needed to be changed. Many of us in the class agreed that he only liked writers who wrote in the same style he did.

He's a funny guy and is the only prof who could make an 8 a.m. two hour lab go by quickly.

Yeah he's funny but he's so old that usually he has no idea whats going on. We never knew what was due or what we were even supposed to do. When you asked for help, he wouldn't give it to you because he couldn't remember what we did that day. He should retire soon, hopefully.

Best thing about this guy is his optional final exam. If you're like me and you missed a few (ok many) of the small assignments, but you still know the stuff, you'll appreciate the test. It replaces your grades for the small potatos and if you did your homework- no final! Great teacher, too!

I took Rubrecht for a class on Chaucer. It was so cool to hear him read in Middle English-he is so smart-definitely knows his English. Very funny too!

Well I did extremely well in HS english, and in this guys class I haven't been able to pull off an A yet. He grades extremely hard. But I guess if you are a English Tycoon you will do fine. The problem with him is that he also teaches advanced ENG, so he grades that much tougher.

Good professor. Class requires many papers, of course, but as long as you put in a little effort and don't act like an idoit, you'll do fine...you may even get a "Hot Damn." He tells lots of great stories and jokes.

Took old Augie's class YEARS ago and wish I could go back and give him the work I'm producing now. He still inspires me. Great storyteller, interesting man, and kind soul.

This class (intro to texts, which now has a different course #) didn't really have a point. Still, it was easy. There were no exams, and the paper assignments were short, so...yeah. Overall, not bad.
