PHI 115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Lets just put it this way: You come to her class, and you learn. She does not take crap from anyone (she kicked 3 kids out of class for talking), and you have to do the readings. The clicker questions can make a difference from receiving a C+ and an B in the class

PHI338 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Despite these critiques I think Bonnie is a delight. Grades on participation so try to keep up with the readings because she likes relevant class discussion and encourages everyone get involved (in a smaller classroom). If you can write a solid philosophy essay then you have nothing to worry about with your grade.

PHI115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely rude and condescending towards students. Mocks opinions frequently, and pretty much preaches her views the entire lecture, and will tell you you're wrong if you express a view that opposes hers. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

I took Bonnie's class in 09.She WAS rude and demeaning!I have a 3.5GPA,almost 30,an RN, &resented being told daily I wasnt in high school and didnt need to be handed things,I agree& you need to teach it in 100 level courses. + a fellow student overheard her in the hallway belittling students comments in class to her troll assistant. Nasty attitude!

One of the most intelligent professors you are likely to encounter at Albany. If you think she is mean, it is probably because you are stupid. She doesn't hand-hold, and she shouldn't have to. A great professor for serious students.

Very vocal about her views. Class is somewhat interesting some days and incredibly boring the next. Clicker Q's so attendance is mandatory. Tests are somewhat tricky because she words questions weird trying to trick you. Avg difficulty but I wouldn't recommend.

Was not just opinionated but rude and demeaning at times over some peoples views. More than once made comments about how were not in high school. I think we get it, some of us were not freshman.

Bonnie Steinbock is a great professor. She makes sure the class understands the assigned topics thoroughly and is always willing to go over stuff that isn't clear. She makes the class interesting by making sure everyone is included in discussion and allows students to discuss their opinions thoroughly.
