PHIL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

she really was a great professor! the only class i enjoyed my first semester, (inspired me to make philosophy my minor!) keeps it interesting. She really loves her students and enjoys teaching, isn't too strict, however she does grade papers/homework assignments a little harsh. No midterm/final, just 3 papers the whole semester. TAKE HER!

She is an okay professor, she just needs to remember that everyone taking the course is not into to it as much as she is.

She is the BEST professor i've had. She is extremely cool and we have pizza parties 2 times throughout the semester. She really cares about each of her students. She's the professor you'd keep visiting even after the sem is over. and i've learned so much. also, unlike the other philosophy professors, she doesnt take religious sides.. TAKE HER

She is an okay teacher, there are written assignments assigned from the weekly readings. Her work is pretty fair, she just has to realize that not everyone taking that class is trying to persue it as thier major.

Professor Andrew is a great professor to have your first semester at WPU - she's easy, extremely helpful, very clear and she makes class extremely fun. If you do the reading you'll pass the class. Also, she's more patient than most professors.

Not an easy class by nature but very manageable if you do the reading and assignments. She's very thorough in explanations and all exam material is covered in class. Pay attention, do the readings and homework and you should do fine.

Easy class. Textbook is needed for the weekly reading/writing assignments. 3 Tests, easy if you go to class and pay attention.

She was a very nice woman and the class was very easy to do well in...of course you had to actually do the readings though. I am not that big a fan of philosophy so sometimes I got a bit bored, but that was no fault of hers.

Great Prof but not the easiest. Lots of reading, and very specific answers needed for her essay tests. But shes really nice, very pleasant and clearly explains all the readings. I would recommend her.

Good Professor-- make sure you turn in your weekly writing assigntments. They are short and easy. DO that and you should get a good grade.

She was an AMAZING prof. She was fun, interesting, highly understanding, and she loves her subject. I had the most fun while learning in her class than almost any other. She does give a lot of writing assignments, but none are that long...maybe a page at most. A great teacher, and you learn something about your own humanity in the process. READING is a must in her class.

Hi, this is college; work is part of the deal. If you just want to coast through without effort or thought, than philosophy classes (even as GE electives) are probably not for you.

Barbara rocks. Her class is enjoyable and she explains things very well. Just do the homework and the reading. Also, she gives really great feedback on all papers and allows a rewrite on the first.
