CORR255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B+

Class was easy, no test, but there was five paper you will have to write. The teacher is old and loves to share old war stories. If you agree with this teacher or pretend so you will receive a good grade. Grading is very unpredictable. Wagner will also not answer his emails so don't even try.

this class changed how I viewed some things. I encourage you to take this class as it challenges you to think from different point of views. He's very helpful and funny. He has some great stories. There was no homework just essays to write. There was like one essay due once a month. Easy and rewarding class.

CORR255 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

Learned more in his class than all my classes combined. People who are complaining about this professor are the exact people he talks about in his lectures. People that are one minded and does not question authority and power. He opens your mind up about a lot of things, not only do you learn about Juvenile Delinquency, but you learn lot about life

CORR255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Amazing teacher! Entertaining stories and energetic! A lot of lecture but it is important to listen to them for papers, don't be afraid to take notes! He likes to argue with students so don't be shy. Highly recommend taking Juvenile Delinquency with him!

Easy class, frustrating professor. Contradicts himself and uses unrealistic examples, also enjoys debating students to make them look foolish to bolster his ego. But on the bright side, he doesn't hold anyone to a high standard of responsibility so it's easy o BS the course and get an A.

CORR255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The greatest thing I learned in this class is to look at things in another light. Dr. Wagner is very approachable, with that said, very liberal. Don't expect to learn much from him. He teaches more about his personal opinions more than anything. If you do argue with him, you better have a good answer or he will tell that your opinion is wrong.

Great teacher, but may frustrate you at times. Don't be afraid to argue with him because he loves it. Come to class for the participation points and take notes on his lectures. You will need them for your midterm essay, final essay and basic themes. He has passion for what he believes & it's awesome listening to him.

SOC255 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I found this class very challenging. I took it as a general and having to write essays is not my strong point and I felt like he was somewhat a hard grader as well. I wouldn't recommend unless it is in your major.

CORR106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Easy A. He's a decent professor, if you don't argue with him. He challanges you to think against yourself and common beliefs and says he is open-minded, but if you express your opinion and it is different than his he will belittle you in every way he can.
