ENVS344 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

The Syllabus is extremely Vague, there is no grading outline, and he does not give the percentages of our final grade of any assignment and not even the final.Overall there is a lot of reading but if you skim it you'll be fine. Just attend class and go by the outlines he gives you.

HIST-185 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C

One of the hardest teachers at Emory University. He will break your writing style as if it were nothing and make you a better writer. Everyone should take him; he makes you want to be a better person.

HIST 385-004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of the best professors at Emory, hands down. I will miss those discussions more than I ever thought I could, even when it meant reading all night before class.

Hist 185-00P Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Allitt is an amazing professor, who truly allows students to think about the subject matter and analyze the historical contexts involved. His class is discussion-based, so be ready to complete the readings and participate. He is more than willing to help students during office hours, so make sure to visit him once during the semester.

HIST 185 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Allitt is easily one of the best professors at Emory. I am so thankful to have had his class as a freshman, because of how much he taught me about writing, reading and studying well. He is not an easy grader,and i loved his emphasis on discussion. Take Allitt if you want to learn something!!

hist100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

great lecturer, possibly the best at emory. on the other hand, he's pompous in a bad way, he believes that embarrassing students is an acceptable way to motivate, and he assigns unreasonable amounts of hw and work in general. so only take one of his classes if you truly wanna study and learn the subject...because you will if you take it

HIST190 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really nice guy. Definitely knows what he is talking about. A little bit pompous sometimes, but not in a bad way because he deserves to be... he's really smart. Very approachable and loves to see you at office hours. Definitely not too hard of a grader.

Dr. Allitt is one of the best at Emory. He's not easy by any stretch, but he cares immensely about the subjects he teaches and his students. He pushes you to the limit in the best way. Be warned, however-- if you want to half-ass this class, don't even bother. If you're ready to do some work, you'll get one of the best at Emory.
