Professor Collihan is great! She's so energetic, funny, and nice. You have to turn in all your assignments for an A. Study with the study guide and use your book for vocab. Take good notes and write your essays off of them. You will enjoy this class unless you don't like doing a bit of work. She makes the topics fun. Be ready for hand cramps.

She is a great teacher, if you want to pass her class you have to do all of the assignments and study very well for her tests. She is some what strict about attendance but I learned a lot from her and she's funny.

This class was great she is very helpful and can answer all your questions if you need help. Homework is easy and the exams are not that hard if you study your notes from class. If you complete all your homework and do somewhat good on the exams of which there are four and she drops the lowest grade then you will pass with ease.

This prof. is wonderful and helpful. If you do your "connect" assignment before tests easy B for the test. plus 4 out of class assignment and she gives wild points for the participation, also she count only 3 best tests out of 4,she drops the lowest. Simply if you attend every class do all the assignments(which are not too hard) you will get an A

One of my FAVORITE professors EVER!! Tough but clear about what she wants. Buy the textbook, you'll need it quite a bit to supplement the lectures. She locks the door five minutes into class, so do NOT be late because she won't let you in and makes sure other students don't as well. Fantastic teacher, very well educated and wants you to learn!

Awesome teacher very clear on what it takes to pass the class. Very helpful during office hours! Drop lowest test score! Easy to get 100% on HW category, just do the work. Test can be difficult if you do not read the text or study.

Best teacher I have had online yet. Loved every assignment. Stay on top of the lab flash card study tool and do the reading / assignments and you will do great. She is always willing to answer questions and her assignments were fun! Never knew I'd love this class so much.

I would highly recommend this teacher to anyone who is afraid of or hates the idea of having to take Political Science. I took this class once before and ended up dropping it because it was hard and boring. Prof. Collihan made this class enjoyable and much easier.

She is very professional and is the best professor at AR. Collihan is like an energizer bunny, she makes you interested. She makes the class FUN. This isn't an easy class and I had to work hard for my B. This class opened my eyes to the real world. She is unbiased,smart, and very helpful. A VERY dedicated and passionate professor. Take her!!!!!!

I took Professor Collihan for her POLS 301 Online class. She was one of the most interactive teachers I have had for an online class. She always responds to emails promptly. Homework assignments are simple. Tests are as well. Overall I would recommend Professor Collihan to EVERYONE. She is an amazing professor

She is very organizes and polite. she explains the assignment very well but the exams are difficult and she used browser lock down for her online exam. if you like political science this is a right teacher for you. Otherwise don't take her.

She is AWESOME!!! Her class is not easy, but if you work for your grade, you will get exactly what you worked for. She is HILARIOUS, is always matching, and well dressed. She is understanding of life circumstances and very fair. I would highly recommend her. If you have no interest in Government to start, you will when you leave her class.

Her class is not an easy A but also not extremely hard. You have to do the work and study to do well. She gives four tests and drops the lowest score. The in class assignments are easy and so is the online portion. Her lectures are clear and helpful. Attendance is not mandatory in her class.

THE most amazing professor on this campus. I also took her for POLS 301 and IR. Collihan is super knowledgeable about the world of global politics and politics in general. She's also quite hilarious. She even inspired me to change my major to political science! Awesome teacher, awesome classes.

Awesome teacher! Very funny which made it easy to want to go to class!! She is understanding and you can tell she really enjoys what she teaches. A lot of extra credit if you show up! My only downfall was that she does not give study guides but I guess you can always expect everything to be handed to you! Over all, I would definitely recommend her!
