CJUS 3310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very intelligent in the subject but requires too much irrelevant work. No tests is an upside but all the papers make up for it.

CJUS2102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

2-3 page paper due every week and one 10-15 pg paper due at the end which is going to suck. And a group project on a chapter in the book. nice guy, VERY VERY intelligent and knows this subject up and down. just follow the syllabus on the papers and you should be fine. I would recommend.

Not a bad professor. He's interesting, you have a 2-3 page paper due each week. Not bad I usually read the chapter the night before. You have a 15 page paper due at the end, but I basically put all my paper together and it worked out perfectly. Oh yeah you have a group presentation, but it's basically one chapter out the book. Attendance IS NOT mandatory.

CJUS2102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

There's a lot of work but the papers take less than like an hour to write. The only hassle the whole year is the ridiculous 15 page paper...no paper needs to be that long to get a point across. you dont really have to even to go to class except for the presentation day and to turn in your papers. easy class if you do the work

Great Class!No exams!There are 9 2-3 pg chapter reflections,a 15 page paper, a group project and frequent class discussions.But if you take into account you have one paper due per week and the rest of the time it's just very interesting discussion with no tests to cram for.You really learn the information and it will be with you for life.TAKE HIM!

Don't listen to the slackers. If you enjoy CJ and actually want to learn something novel and challenging and DIFFERENT, take his classes. He can be challenging, but he helps you and doesn't attack you like other professors. His classes usually mean a lot of reading and discussion, but it's well worth it. Also, his graduate classes are ROCKING.

Bruce Arrigo really motivates you to think outside your box, which is nice.

Simply put, Dr. Arrigo is the man. Common sense in a sea of lunacy; intelligence in a world of stupidity and someone not afraid to think outside the box instead of grazing with the sheep. Every graduate class should be like his. Don't read or lecture grad students... get them to THINK FOR THEMSELVES. Dr. Arrigo "gets it."

CJUS777 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had Dr. Arrigo a number of years ago as a graduate student, and his classes were nothing like what these freshmen are describing. Attendance was mandatory, class discussions were stimulating, and papers were challenging. He was one of the best teachers I ever had.
