"Skip class? You won't pass." "Gives good feedback" "Tough Grader"

She expects a lot from you but I learned so much in this class. Be ready to spend a LOT of time on this course if you want to pass. Hardest class I've taken in college but it was worth it. She is really helpful too if you ask for it, always willing to meet & responds to emails fast. She's also really funny and nice, despite what others on here say.

PSY-E2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B-

She's really nice, really intense, really hot. As long as you have good ideas she will help you out a lot. But if you didn't learn much in E1 don't take her. You do all of the stats and SPSS by yourself, she won't help with that. Also don't bother with the textbook you literally don't use it at once, just pay attention to her slides and tangents.

PHYS Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

This professor is arrogant, rude, and condescending. She is very confrontational and will quickly try to tell her students off. I got an A in that class, because I work hard, but her character is awful. Yeah, she might have a lot of material to work on, but so do many professors. That's not the problem, the problem is her professionalism. AVOID!

PSY4040 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you want a professor who is encouraging, friendly, kind, nonjudgmental, and helpful stay far away from this one. She is rather rude and pretentious, which I can handle, but she does not make up for it in any way. Sort of pathetic if you ask me.

She's super duper helpful will go any length in order to help you do well although you do have to put in a lot of work. Be attentive sit in front of class you learn so much from professor Haines. When you actually put the work in and don't be lazy like I did you probably do better, but I will say the course is not easy. You will need to work hard.

PSY220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Haines is the best professor I ever had. You do have to work at it, but I learned more from her classes than any other Psych course! Her classes r very interesting,she loves what she does - always a plus - and she gives PowerPoints 2 parallel the text. Don't listen 2 the whiners complaining she's 2 hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it!

No matter what class you take with her she is hard. I can't stand people saying "she is tough but"...she is tough period! Good Lord its no wonder the weirdos stay with her. I don't care what anyone says, I did not come to college for some teacher to act hard. If she wanted to be hard she should have just joined the army..Salute!

PSYCH210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you are looking for an easy A do not take this class. Numerous assignments, tests, and quizzes. Reading the tb will help a lot, and all documents and lecture notes are on blackboard. She has a passion for what she does and wants her students to be interested and learn. She has a great personality, but the class is extremely hard.

Dr. Haines seems tough at first but she really is such a great professor and she loves what she does. The work can be a lot but pay attention in class and read the text and you'll be fine. I have to say that it's because of her and this class that I want to go more into social psych in my future. She is awesome! =]

PSY202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Haines is super tough but absolutely doable. She does expect a lot, but not more than you can offer. A lot of dedication is required and a lot of work is assigned. For E1 there are 12 quizzes, one every single class, one 6-8pg paper due every class as well. I learned a lot and my interest for Statistics increased. She is there if you need help.

Psy220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Her personality is great, she really makes the class fun and interesting. Her work on the other hand is extremely way too much when you're dealing with 5 or 6 other courses. 4 exams, 5-6 papers, many quizzes, etc. It's way too much and the papers are very in-depth. If you want an easy A, don't take her. good luck if you do!

Psy311 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A friend told me she was too tough to handle, but I took her anyway. I don't regret it at all! Haines wants you to learn, so her class is not a breeze. If you're willing to actually put in effort for her class, you'll do fine. It's not easy, but it's definitely worth it. And she's so funny!

She is very annoying and has no people skills. Just another professor who think she is the absolute importance in the world.

Despite what you hear from others....TAKE HER! She is awesome. I learned so so much. It was hard, but totally worth it. And she's there for you every step of the way. Oh and....I want to be just like her when I grow up. :)

i'm taking her now. i was a little nervous because of all of the things i read on this site, but i'm really happy i took her anyway. she explains things perfectly. sure shes tough, but she's clear in her expectations[which are not impossible to meet] and as long as you meet them you're fine. she's a fair grader and super nice.

Very hard class, but she was very helpful, approachable, and easy to talk to. wanted students to do well and always asked for feedback of her teaching methods and wanted to know what worked well for students to learn. definitely recommend her for this class, she'll really help you every step of the way!
