Great guy, super sarcastic but not too abrasive. gives valid and helpful criticism, but overall very encouraging. 3 hours flies by, especially with the 15 minute snack breaks! Learned lots.

Eric is fantastic professor. Sarcastic and awkward, but really helps and takes time to help and critique each individual, so long as you seek him out and bother him for the attention.

ART430 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Eric is a good professor, has a vast knowledge of graphic design and is willing to help. He has a lot on his plate so he is not great at responding to emails and he grades pretty hard, but if you listen to directions you will get good grades and actually learn

ART132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I LOVE ERIC! He is such a great professor and completely willing to help everyone 24/7. He is accessible and really smart. Grades hard and expects a lot of work, but he is just setting you up for what will happen after college. Great guy, really friendly, funny and a wonderful teacher.

He should retire. Talks and talks and teaches nothing. Just do what he says and he'll pass you. Money wasted.

He is a great teacher, we play dictionary at the beginning of each class which is both fun and helpful since the point of the class is to learn to draw quickly and accurately!

Best prof at Chapman, hands down! His classes may be labor-intensive, but he genuinely cares about every student and wants to make you a great designer. Passionate about design and easy to talk to, Chimenti's class will teach you the value of starting designs away from the computer and help you find your personal style.

Wonderful teacher! I was a little intimidated by his sarcasm at first but the class turned out to be one of my favorites! i loved playing pictionary at the beginning of each class. This class is the reason I'm staying a Graphic Design major!

Eric is a wonderful person and a great teacher. He is nit picky but for good reason... he wants you to be successful. Eric is super-helpful, always available for extra help and talking, and encourages learning beyond the class room. He provides a lot of work and some challenging assignments but SO WILL YOUR CLIENTS. Take for Rendering.

he is so hard!!!! be prepared to spend most of your time on this class, and not get a good grade for all of your work. he will, however, turn you into the best graphic designer you can be at the time. sometimes his sarchasm gets annoying though!

If he was really a great Graphic Designer, he wouldn't need to be a teacher.

really had a fun time in graphic design with eric. fun projects, informative teaching. often during crits, etc, i felt like he focused mainly on the bad parts of your and the other's projects, and not enough commentation on what was right, or you had done well. but overall, i would definitely recommend, eric rocks.
