HYBRID- If you are serious about becoming a better writer- English major etc. TAKE HER! She will get you right on track to where you are suppose to be! Lazy students NEED NOT APPLY. She gives you work and readings that will ultimately give you a new outlook on life. I failed the class and still loved her :) That should speak volume!

Professor Orsini is the best teacher for Comp 1. She will work you like a factory worker, but it's for your benefit. Just show up to class, pay attention and do exactly what she teach in class and you will have a good grade.

Have taken prof Orisini twice. Love her class and her teaching method. Has pushed me to be a better writer and now I'm hooked! Super helpful if you're showing initiative, won't hold your hand through the class, you definitely have to put some work it but well worth it.

If you are interested in finding out if you have what it takes to write creatively for an audience, this is the class for you. Prof. Orsini makes very clear what she expects from each piece, and grades accordingly. If you think this will be an easy A, then look elsewhere. You will have to work hard, and you will be rewarded for it.

dont take this class. shes nice in person but very rude via email, if you ask her a question she'll reply as if you are stupid. There is better professors out there, i honestly dont know why or how she still has a job at that school.

Professor Orsini is TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! She will work you like a rented mule, But it's for your benefit, not hers. The best surprise is that there are no surprises. Just show up to class, pay attention and do your work and your straight. You get what you give. Shes a pistol, But madd kool.

Before, I LOVED writing. She turned it into tedious forced labor of dreary emptiness and useless dreams. You have one shot on everything she grades. No rough drafts, just everything you did wrong. You really don't need a book, you can find everything online. Also, she is VERY opinionated. Her views and interpretations are 'always' right. Always.

I had a tough time understanding her strict requirements. She doesnt ask for a rough draft and you cannot fix your paper after it is graded. You only have one shot at your grade. She will help you correct your mistakes "after" grading. You will learn but you better learn the first time around or your grade will suffer severely. Regrettable choice.

Love her! She is so sweet. She is tough. Don't miss class or be irresponsible. She will call you out. She is a pistol but loves her students. I have learned so much from her. I am planning on taking her for Comp. 2 as well. As long as you follow directions, you shouln't have an issue with her. She doesn't require a texbook!

IF YOU WANT TO BE A BETTER WRITER TAKE THIS CLASS. It will be difficult. She tears you down but she builds you back up. At first I hated her because she made me feel like such a crappy writer but now I'm so grateful. I've improved SO MUCH! The only thing I hated were her online tests so be careful with those! Overall I wish she taught another class

I took a Hybrid Enc1102 class and Professor Orsini is a little tough in grading but I liked her teaching methode. If you are attending school full time expect to write some serious essays on at least 5 different topics.

She is AMAZING! Trust me, if you're into writing, then you MUST take her class. She will help you out sooo much. At first, I'll admit, she's a scary lady, but before you know it you'll be craving her insight on everything you write! Take her creative writing class, you won't be sorry.

I took her online class and liked how she did it. It wasn't a typical online class because she created website where you post all your stories. It made workshopping other people's stories in the class. My only complaint is that I feel like her critiques were at times geared more towards her own style instead of helping my style grow.

Great class! She can be intimidating at first but overall was a great professor. Was extremely helpful and clear on how she wanted the papers done. The topics themselves weren't so easy. Probably the only class I enjoyed going to this semester. Take her if you can!

She's very blunt, and at first this offended me, but once you see what she's talking about in your paper, you'll realize that she's always right. She really wants the best from you, and she has a true passion for writing and helping students. She grades fairly, but harshly. Keep an open mind and this class is awesome! Great prof! She's Hilarious!
