Comm103 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Tough Grader" "Tests? Not many" "Gives good feedback"

I had him from 6-9 and it wasn't bad because he's really funny. There is only one test (the midterm) so make sure you study for it. There are three main speeches and he is a pretty tough grader, but he gives good feedback and will help you if you need it. Don't take this class if you're easily offended though.

EXCOMM300 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His humor off-color and opinionated. Political correctness stays outside class. If you are easily offended or lazy dont bother taking this professor. The course is hard because he expects students to do their part and read. I initially had no interest in this class, I left the class with an exceptional understanding, interest and improved writing

EXCOM200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very nice and funny guy! He's a difficult teacher but knows he gives a hard class and tries to make it fair by curving the tests. A LOT of readings for the class but if you do them and study you'll do well on the tests. One large assignment due at the end but no final.

ExCom200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He was one of the worst professors I have ever had. Can be funny but chooses to single people out. Doesn't use textbook, instead requires you to read high level doctoral journals and expects you to understand them all. Doesn't give extra help when you need it either.

COMMU103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a hard grader. There is no final so the only grades are 3 speeches and a midterm. If you want an A you need to be a great speaker and really work hard. He is funny, but sometimes his comments are a bit grotesque. I'd suggest a different professor for public speaking, but you won't die if you take him either.

ExCom1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is an extremely hard teacher. One of the funniest profs I have ever had though. He really works with the class and helps you understand the material. I would recommend him...only if you DON'T want an easy A. He makes you work, but its worth it!!

Very helpful teacher. Very fun and makes you comfortable in the class. Not a hard grader. Read chapters though because midterm is on all of them. But there is no final. There were 3 speeches and you pick your topics. I RECOMMENDED him. Funny teacher. I got a B.

He's not my type of professor. He cares about only himself, and how much uproar he can cause. I'm glad that this semester's over so I don't have to take another class with him. Sorry, the truth hurts.

I don't think he's teaching Interpersonal Communication again. He was ok but he made a lot of sexual inuendos.

Great Professor. Funny and Down to Earth. Likes to make jokes and have a good time. It's hard to get an A in the class though---most people get B's.

Pub. Speaking Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very interesting class, not the subject material but the conversations. The speeches from your classmates get extremely boring but he doesn't. Got a B in the class, and it was based on 3 speeches and a midterm. All are easy and another speech you get a 100 for participation. Great class. EASY
