Mimi was a great professor! She is engaging, personable, and makes the whole course worth it. She understands students in summer courses are busy with other things, and makes the course as easy as possible while still making it a worthwhile learning experience.

She will listen and can be reasoned with. If you show her respect and attend to all her classes, you'll do well. Very helpful in 1 on 1 critique. No textbook is used.

AWESOME prof! Finds amazing information and delivers it in a funny and interesting way. She related art to important concepts and was very fair in understanding that not all students do well on both essays and tests, so she offers mark replacement. If at all interested in art, ABSOLUTELY take this course with Mimi

Great Prof. I imagined art history to be boring but she makes it so fun, you actually want to go to her class. She doesn't have a textbook and just gives notes which are GREAT. The essay and 2 quizes are fair but are also a bit tricky. But they aren't torture, you actually learn from it. Overall just AMAZING!

I absolutely LOVE attending her lectures. So inspiring and you learn SO MUCH every lecture. She is funny and very knowledgeable. And extremely helpful when you are having trouble with the course because she wants everybody to do well. Essay requirements and the weekly readings are pretty heavy for an elective but it is rewarding. LOVE HER!

Mimi is one of the most enthusiastic and gifted professors that I've ever had. She is clearly passionate about her subject matter and digs deep to deliver an interesting (and educational) perspective on the topics within the course. She is also a fast marker, keeps her promises, and she's funny.

Avoid if you are taking this class as an elective. Essay requirements are ridiculous, and so time consuming. Comments are condescending. Expects you to have an art background. No text, but 500 slides which she rambles about and then expects you to sit there and memorize dates and names for the final. Horrible!

IRL100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Although she is knowledgable,avoid if possible. Final exam has 500 slides(no joke) to study from. WAY too difficult for a first year elective course. She seems nice in lecture but in person comes off as cold,annoyed and unwilling to help. Strict guidlines for assignments. Don't expect an A, your final grade is most likely going to be a D.

Probably one of if not the best classes of university, she is so smart and inspiring. Absolutely amazing. She makes you work hard but it's very rewarding.

Likes to say sexy times for class appeal, and the use of a scrunchy because she has no clue. I have an A average and I was given a D in her class due to her lack of clarity. This female is cut; boring and loser. long live scalzo, one of the few thoughtful RSID minds.

Literally showed vaction slides insteadof using a textbook. Notes posted online were used instead of a text and were up to 75 pages long. Abrasive, unhelpful, uninteresting.

Mimi makes the course very interesting and I found taking IRL 100 useful prior to this course. Material is heavy but interesting. If you do everything you're supposed to, participate often and can easily grasp the material then you can easily get at least an A-! Really not that difficult.

Mimi knows her stuff. If you attend her classes and get to know and understand the material then you can do well in this course. The material is interesting and I took her IRL 100 class and found it useful for IRL 500. Just come to the classes, follow the instructions and read everything you're supposed to and you can get a minimum of an A-. Really

If you want a 60 then take this course. She takes attendance every class & she's a harsh marker. Only students with an art background will do well in this class. She expects us to know art theory and write a 20 page essay. So regret taking this course!
