"Gives good feedback" "Inspirational" "Would take again"

She is wonderful! Sweet and helpful. Her comments are hilarious, even if it is constructive criticism. Writers should take this class. She has helped my writing so much. I would take every class she teaches.

She is what a teacher should be: upfront, helpful, challenging but also encouraging. If you like art, she does to, and you'll never look at text the same. She teaches SUBTEXT so well! Very intelligible woman.

If you want a professor who will tip-toe around your fragile ego and tell you that you did well when you actually failed miserably, then look elsewhere; Professor Orsini will not hold your hand or mince words. If you are in college to actually learn something then this is the professor for you. Her class is challenging and totally worth it.

ENC 1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B-

Essays are not easy, drafting packages seem like busy work, if you miss one day - you're lost for the rest of that assignment. Not very helpful, must be an easier professor for english comp( pre-req. for everything) -_-

She is very nice at first but turns into a HOT MESS throughout the term. She tries to be funny, but really isn't. She is obsessed with horses and random youtube videos. She does give a lot of HOMEWORK and this class takes up a lot of your time so be ready. Very strict & a harsh grader. You do learn but this is your warning.

Arrogant and short in emails. Calls you out in class, as well as being confusing with the material, often not taking responsibility if there has been a misunderstanding with the material.

Very rude and arrogant. Not a very helpful professor. She likes to call you out in class even if you have not done anything. She sends mixed messages regarding the homework and blames the student if she has been fault in a misunderstanding. Her rules are very confusing and she is not easy to ask for help.

Really great teacher! Helped me love writing! Don't take if you want a walk in the park teacher. But if you try you will pass for sure. Got a B in her class.

I took her online Creative Writing course. I have always been interested in writing and wanted to become better. She definitely did help! She grades a bit hard, but does offer some extra credit to offset that. She is honest and I have become a better writer because of her! If you are interested in writing you MUST take her course!

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.

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!
