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.

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

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.

She is a horrible professor. She doesn't teach. She tests you on stuff she hasn't taught you. The Lab is decent but the professor is rude, disrespectful and not a good teacher. AVOID AT ANY COST!!

You don't get a choice, you have to take her. She's a successful woman but she's not the best teacher. I learned some things in her class but my grades really couldn't reflect that. She "teaches" about her experience and then tests us on the book's information. You aren't really prepared for her exams.

I made a B in her class and could have easily gotten an A if I purchased the book and studied a little bit harder for the class. I thought her topics were interesting. This class has been one of my favorites at UNF. What you make of her class will depend on if you like or dislike it. I liked it!

You probably won't learn anything in this class but since it's mandatory... study the book and ignore her lectures. She is only helpful when it comes to the group project. Project is super easy if you follow the instructions and use creativity. Quizzes & Tests are hardest part of the class. READ THE BOOK!

Hard quizzes and tests but if you read the material you will do fine. She is very helpful and willing to help you, if you care then she cares. She realized everyone was flunking so she gave extra credit and it was very helpful in the end.

Worst professor I have ever had at UNF. The first quiz (which was out of 10 points) resulted in over 50 people reviving between a 0 and 1. When she teaches she is unclear and wastes class time with movies that are not directly related to the media. A word of advice: do not take her class!!!

this professor is TERRIBLE. I have been in her class for one week and am considering changing my major because I can't deal with her. Our entire class bombed the first quiz because she put information that was not even in the text on it. I sent her an email with a very simple question and she couldn't answer it. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS
