"Tests? Not many"

Great Professor! Very helpful and caring. Class was not too difficult; show up on time, study, put effort, and you'll pass.

"Papers? More like novels" "Big time extra credit" "Gives good feedback"

I loved this class even though it was online. First and final tests were multiple choice. I think I wrote 3 papers? I'm not too sure. Also, the final paper worth 50 points is optional if you already have an A.

PHIL25 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She thinks her class is the most important thing in the world and she creates her own strange rules. If you are okay with following requests that don't make any sense, this is the class for you. In her group projects, someone needs to volunteer to become a group leader for no extra credit. You don't find any logic here.

Phil 25 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The grading structure makes for an easy A. The material is interesting and very useful, but I recommend finding another prof for this course. She seems intent on indoctrinating her students at times(and I agree with her on most of her views!), rather than teaching them to weigh arguments critically. The lectures felt disorganized and wasteful.

"Tests? Not many" "Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

I have a love hate for this class. Took her during the summer and I dropped the course because it was so difficult. I decided to take her again in the fall and it was way better although I was failing the first half of the semester. Tough grader and the tests are pretty tough as well. You really have to read and study ALL of the material to pass.

"Clear grading criteria" "Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

She gives amazing lectures, and everything about the assignments are very clear. Not a harsh or an easy grader but you will get the grade you deserve. I personally loved the fact that she would post extra lecture materials online. Also, do all the softchalks she gives you, they are like Jesus for your grades; Savior. 1010 would take again.

"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read" "Assignments galore"

One of the hardest classes I've ever taken, but I learned a lot!! The tests were hard, but the midterm & final were so much harder!! It was interesting and worth it. One good thing is that the gradepoint system is very straight forward. Extra credit is a good idea, if you have an A at the end, you are not required to take the final!!

PHILO 25 HONORS Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very straight forward and no BS with this professor, which I really liked. Gives lots of clear examples and prepares you well for what is to be expected on the tests. Somewhat challenging but the assignments I completed are works that I am most proud of. I highly recommend Prof. Rogacs. Extra credit assignment was on a Marvel movie. AWESOME!!!

I had Rogacs and Schulz for PHILO 25 as part of an Honors Block. I was registered under Rogacs, so she was my primary professor. She is very clear and gives good lectures. It's essential to keep up with reading and exercises in the book, as we did go over it in class. Ask questions! In class discussions are helpful and can boost your grade.

Religious std 1 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This was a hybrid course. Online is easy as long as you read the material. Her lectures are fun to listen to and interesting. Exams were online and easy, as long as you paid attention in class and took a LOT of notes. Notes are the key! Great teacher!!!

PHIL 25 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

This class was not easy or hard. There were sections I could understand easily just through her lectures online. Then, there were times I neede to actually read the book. That's rare for me. Her class is a lot of writing, and her tests are no joke. But she was very helpful when i needed it.

Prof Rogacs class isn't exactly easy or hard.You need to really understand the material,just takes TIME to actually do the work.She teaches very well, gives plenty of examples & is very open to discussion. Ask q's! During test reviews ask for as many answrs to the test bank as you can.DONT MISS A CLASS,theyre way more helpful than reading on ur own

PHILO 25 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

BTW, this is a good review. I love Prof. Rogacs for being tough. Believe me, you cannot slack off. You must commit & study very hard. In my case, philosophy is not something I am good at, so I did have to put a lot of effort. She is challenging & honest, but that's how it's supposed to be. She does not take excuses or BS; however, she is helpful.

Very straightforward and knowledgeable. She doesn't take bs, so always be prepared for class. Read the book & modules on Canvas! 4 exams, 3 hw assign., and a final paper. The entire course is out of 100 pts. so every pt. counts, but there are 2 extra credit opportunities. Sarcastic and dry sense of humor, so she's great! Very helpful prof.

Humanities 4 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

My second class with her - outstanding professor committed to the mission of CC education. Lectures are always interesting and tests are easy if you take excellent lecture notes. She will also give you a primer on how to handle yourself in class, which a lot of the CC students don't understand - wonderful teacher - great class - take her.

Humanities 1 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had her in a joint class with professor Milne,I did better on her midterm and final than I did on his. She is very clear in her lessons, I thought she was hilarious (because she had an attitude sometimes with students who tried to argue or talk during lessons), gives you midterm and final questions 1 week prior (cheat sheet). Hard to fail class.

PHILO 3 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mrs. Rogacs is an amazing teacher. She is one who understands the cognitive level that a student is at and is able to build upon what you already know to teach you what you need to learn. She is not easy, you'll need to read and study, but she is willing to help any time she's in her office. Highly recommended!

Very hard readings, She will explain on them very clearly with the lecture. Will actually give you a study guide ahead of tests. Very good professor. Get her if your lucky.

Great lectures. Take notes, show up prepared, and don't get behind in the reading. Do not ever use electronic devices in class without permission - you've been warned. Intimidating at first, put your head down and show her you're serious, and she will go out of her way to help you succeed. Not easy, but worth it. Go to office hours if you need help
