Hist401 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Had her for two graduate courses. Tests way too easy. Needed only needed one credit to graduate. Unfortunately, she made no sense, said she got her information from the internet. Told some students in class she only had to give a c, had an A average and would still graduate with C. She is clueless and makes it up as she goes if she does.

HIST170W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

For a writing intensive it was super easy. Doesn't care if ppl come to class or even sleep in class but if you miss 2 days at most you get an A on the final (10 pts.) Lets ppl turn stuff in almost whenever. I like history but she just made class EXTREMELY boring. Doesn't engage the class at all. Just talks.

HIST170 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Tests are very straight and easy. Also the easiest writing intensive class I have had. If you take 170W. Only 3 to 4 papers that are 2 to 3 pages long.

HIST170 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Honestly, the class was ridiculously easy. I brought a novel to read in every class since she can get pretty boring. She gave out a study guide for every test. Never paid attention and got an A.

HIST170 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is hands down the least interesting class I have ever taken. She no longer knows how to relate to students. If you only miss two class periods throughout the semester she gives you an automatic A on the final. Easy class but very dull.

HIST401 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Good person. Average Professor. The lectures are very badly organized. Too many videos. But She is always willing to help and she is very fair in terms of grading. A previous poster was correct: Greek was interesting. Roman, I learned nothing at all. Should be separate classes. Overall, could be better.

HIST432 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She makes you think. Don't expect her to sppon-feed you. She respects students who work hard and helps you see connections.

Hist170w Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you want to take this class, take it as writing intensive. Tests are essays but are very easy, we only write 5 total papers besides. Hanke is liberal, but I still enjoyed the information she presented, despite the fact that many students fell asleep every morning (8 AM class) Do your work and you'll do well. 92% = A She rounded me up :)

It gets a little long and boring sometimes, but she's really not a bad professor.
