Dr. Stoker knows her stuff, and loves to share it. She isn't easy to get in to see, and forgets to respond to email, but the class time is good. I did see her be rude to a student in front of the whole class, the kid later dropped. I have been told she isn't supportive, but I had no issues. Again, really knows her topic.

Professor Stoker is kind and wonderful. Homework isn't too difficult if you stay up on it. Sometimes she doesn't answer e-mails, though she claims to, but she really knows her subject and really enjoys teaching it.

Took her for 3 classes, including REL 205 & 300s. Clear lecturer, no hmk but reading, and usually only 1-2 essays. Really knows her stuff!

Wonderful lecturer, very clear and thorough with explanations. Class was interesting and she incorporated a lot of her own experiences/travels into the material. Tests were all essay but outlines were always given out and discussed in advance. Paper was graded and given back for a re-write to improve score. Easy A

I loved her class! I never thought I could be interested in Hinduism but she makes it fun and super interesting. She is so knowledgeable it's almost mesmerizing. The class isn't easy but worth it, definately.

it was a lot of reading and a lot of discussion - one exam at the end of the quarter that was super easy and a 15-page paper that you have all quarter to do. easy class when starting the humanities program.

She's a very good teacher who knows what she's talking about. Her tests aren't bad and she provides a lot of help for the papers. The only negative is that she expects more interest in a gen ed. class than what is always going to be there.

A wonderful teacher- knows the subject very well (in this case the topic was World Religions). I was already interested in the subject, so maybe that contributed to my opinion, but I found her class very interesting. You do have to attend class unless you have a valid excuse, but it helps since the material is sometimes hard to understand.

This professor is absolutely wonderful. She is very fun and interesting. She knows exactly what she is talking about and she is always there to clarify. One 5 page paper with rewrite option. She is great. Take her if you want to have fun and get a great grade.

She's great. Totally knows her stuff and is friendly and helpful. Anyone with a problem with her must be really lazy or dumb.

Acts perky everyday but in a b*tchy way. She picks her favorites and if you're not one don't expect to do very well. Teaches like a high school teacher. Thinks since she has a PHD in religion that she is better than everyone else. She is the one of the worst teachers I've ever had.

I find Dr. Stoker to be very professional and helpful - she gives great insight - I appreciate her comments, feedback, and candor. Master's research is a dry and difficult subject - she teaches it well, and is very upbeat. Love the food on Tuesdays - great idea!

she's a good teacher, but she's not very easy going even tho she's always perky. do your work, read the stuff, you'll pass and you can get a lot out of it. but, i've heard her complain and badmouth some students behind their back, so i kinda have a low opi

Her lecture style is kinda dry. Basically wants you to read texts before class (and even before the course begins), and know the answers in class. If you ask a question, she'll answer it briefly but be shocked you didn't know the answer in the first place.
