"There for you" "Participation matters" "Respected by students"

She is a great professor. She may intimidate you in the beginning with her expectations and workload, but she really cares about her students and wants you to succeed. She takes all her time out to be there for her students. You have to work for a good grade in her class but she will make sure you have all the tools you need.

MMC1004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I honestly felt like I did not learn anything directly from her in this class. She pretty much ruined my interest in my own major because of her attitude. Have fun :)

MMC1004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B+

I had her for 6 weeks this summer and she is Great!! Very helpful, clear teaching and she knows her stuff! Pay attention in class, read the book and study her PowerPoint slides for the test. With the Bb discussions be very detailed about your response. Also, participate in class discussions. I made a B+ but could have done better.

Prof. Ladendorff is a wonderful teacher. She is extremely knowledgeable and encourages you to think outside the box. You really need to know how to write well in order to do good in this class. It is not an easy A at all. Study for the tests and read the text and you will do good. Also, her in class discussions were very enlightening.

Professor Ladendorff was the best professor I've had at UNF. She is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She is also very approachable. I loved the discussions in her class and she has an interesting point of view. I highly recommend taking her she is wonderful!

Definitely knows her stuff. But a very difficult grader. if you take the lab, don't take TATRO. show up, take notes, and make time to meet with her. definitely not an easy a. if you can pull a b, you're doing amazing. she's really approachable in person though!

MMC1004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C

This class is a waste of your life. I do not understand how she is still a professor! You MUST go to class and waste your life while 100% of the test is from the book and 0% from her lectures. This is the most pointless class I have ever taken.

I took these classes in the same semester. Ladendorff is tough, but she gets a bad rep. Don't be rude in her class. Pay attention. She teaches the basics but that doesn't mean you don't need to know it. Study. Outline the chapters (1004). Give her your attention and don't talk over her. Make your name and face known to her. You'll do fine.

This class is mandatory for communication majors but she is a great teacher. Although class is mandatory you wont learn much in the class. If you wanna do good on the tests thoroughly read the assigned chapters and then take notes/listen to her powerpoint slides in which she voice-overs.

MMC 1004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Ladendorff is a good teacher because she's been around the block with Communications and the Media. However, her lectures are too vague and her tests are all over the place. Read the textbook before or after every class, because otherwise you won't learn half the material. If you pay attention and read, you'll probably come out with a B.

Loved her! She is very educated and an amazing teacher. She teaches a huge class so ask her questions. Stay focused and you should come out of her class with a B.

Ladendorff is a character- she's worked in the media a lot so she knows what she's talking about, and she's very well spoken, but her tests are absolutely insane, cluttered, and not reflective of work we've covered. I wouldn't recommend her, but you have to take her.

Prof Ladendorff knows what she's talking about, with extensive experience in the media. This Media Literacy class was more of a hybrid class. So don't expect to just breeze over the powerpoints, you have to read as well! The PPTs are just a summary. She may be tough, but you learn a lot, especially with new social media apps.

Don't listen to these people. Ladendorff isn't bad she just doesn't put up with lazy whiners who blame her for their problems. The class is about grammar skills, so if you have half a brain and know basic punctuation and the difference between things like affect and effect you'll do fine. It's Communication people, not rocket science!

this is my 2nd class with her, I know people give her a bad rap but to be honest I don't think she is bad. She is real and tells you like it is. She is quite diff if you visit during office hours where she is extremely helpful. She has made me more prepared for a job, and I just think people whine because YES you have to work for your grade!

This professor is THE WORST. I took her over the summer and her quizzes and tests were horribly unfair reflections of book material and lecture. It's hard to know where she gets the material from it's so random. It's sad that she ONLY has bad comments from this current semester. SO GLAD that I got out of having her for MMC3105! AVOID HER

MMC 1104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The way she picks & chooses material for her exams is LUDICROUS. Personally, I do not respond well to professors who are inherently rude and derogatory to students. She discourages people from sticking with the major. (It's communications not physics) & she continuously talks about her time at CNN. Overall, semi-easy class; unpleasant experience.

She isn't the best teacher I had at UNF. She flies through powerpoints and doesn't throughly explain projects. She can be pretty rude when you share your feedback in class. However I did learn a lot.

I am taking Prof. L for two classes and am barely passing either. Her teaching style is the worst. She doesn't teach much, just regurgitates what is in the book. I have not leaned much, other then what I have taught myself. She can also be very very VERY RUDE. Avoid her if possible.
