ENST 209 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Lectures are long" "Tests? Not many" "Better Like Group Projects"

He talks non-stop about his own eco-friendly life and random stuff which is kind of boring. He rarely ends class early. A big cons is that many of his lectures takes place at the Saltbox, 10 min drive from the college in N.Y. state so if you don't have a car you must constantly ask other students to get you there which is annoying.

Eco234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of Greatest intellectual professors' that I have ever had. I am currently taken his class this semester. He has expanded my understanding of nature, spirituality and being humanly connected to every living form of life. He has so much to offer, especially his connection with the customs, beliefs of Native Americans. His lectures are amazing!!

ENST-336-01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Only work was some short write-ups and a 10 page final paper. If you show up and do the work, you'll do well. He's very bold in his opinions, but does a good job of maintaining an open discussion with students. Will talk a lot about philosophy and his work vs. Ford. Prepare for at least one local field trip. Overall, a pretty easy class

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

Ecology, Society, and the Sacred Class...I am not into this type of subject at all but had to take it. If you are not into what he is teaching than you will be lost the entire class, but it is ok because he doesnt give any work! Only one paper at the end which is very easy. Just show up! He is really nice though. Easy A aslong as you attend

ENST3350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Had Stead for Ecology, Society and the Sacred. We had 2 Ramapo Indian guest speakers (one was the chief) in class and traveled to his Salt Box for some classes. Hardly any work-a final paper and some short write-ups. He tends to ramble on about whatever's in the news, like in his other classes. Only negative is he never responds to emails

Global Ethics- He's so funny. He's a bit wacky, but the conversations are always relevant and informative. Little assignments, nothing crazy. I'd take him again.

Took him for World Sustainability. Nice guy but he goes off on tangents about god knows what every class. Didn't take a page of notes the whole semester. Didn't read any of the books. 2 group projects but they are very easy. No midterm or final. Got an A.

Amazing teacher, i love his style of teaching- no tests and no hard papers. This man can talk forever but most of it is interesting. u never need the books, even tho he does use them- but don't buy them its just a waste! he starts off grading everyone with a B - so its an easy A class. TAKE HIM!

Professor Chuck is probably one of the best and most interesting teachers at the college. He knows a lot about many different subjects. He wants students in his class to take an active role in researching and presenting their projects while continuously learning about social ecology and interactions between people and communities. Very cool class!

Chuck is quite possible the best prof on campus. I took him for intro my sophomore yr; have him for world sustainability now. Without a doubt, whoever left the insidious lies against him holds a personal grudge and needs to mature. Badly.

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

def different from most professors. He is very passionate, well educated, intellectual, inspirational&active in his area. He brings REAL life issues to the forefront. You will learn so much in his interesting class. He has some great ideas but can be a bit radical and judgemental at times. Even tho it was easy I learned more than in any other class

One of the best professors ever!! Chuck makes you think outside the box and will really get you to open your mind. Class is very interested and he is one of hte only ppl i know who can talk for 3 hrs and never run out of things to say. as long as you put a good effort in and try, u should have no problem. I def suggest taking him!

SENV103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

As a kid, this is what I always imagined a college class would be. Cool teacher, discussions about REAL and RELEVENT things, and lots of controversial (and shocking) material. Also, there's no hard work--but I learned and retained more from this course than form any other I have taken. Even if you don't need to fulfill a gen ed, take Chuck.

This guy is definately an interesting character. Chuck will get you to think about things you might have never thought of before. He is very liberal, but its bearable. Very entertaining, a definite must before you leave ramapo.
