HIST 124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C-

Do not take him or his class. It's supposed to be a common curriculum class, but this will drain your gpa. If you have better options take someone else. He is very unhelpful and close minded. I never felt comfortable in class or enough to talk to him as a student. He is very difficult on papers. I'm a fairly decent writer and received awful grades.

HIST-122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

RUN FAR, FAR AWAY! This is the worst teacher at Loyola! He exepects students to dedicate way too much time outside of class on his subject (forgetting that we have like 6 other classes). Quizzes and tests are impossible no matter how hard you study and pay attention. Ruthless. I thought priests were supposed to be nice!

Hist x260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

this class is taught on a graduate level, def. not undergrad. he is disorganized, never returns work, poorly prepares students for exams and seems to hate students. i'm not sure how this man is a teacher. its almost like he messes with us trying to see how hard he can make it. i am an A student that has never struggled like this in a class before.

HIST122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Such a ridiculously difficult teacher. Quizzes everyday that require you to read 50+ pages a night and 150 slide powerpoints. After reading both he still only quizzes you on unimportant details. I didn't learn much in this class and was constantly frustrated. Got the lowest grade I've received in college in this course.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Father Gerlach is really, really tough. This is not a class for the light-hearted. I really struggled due to the amount of work and rhe difficulty of tests. But I learned a lot.

Don't take him if you want an easy A. If you are genuinely interested in the subject and are willing to put forth the extra effort, by all means take him. Great professor.

HISTQ270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took him for World War I during the summer. Father Gerlich really knows his subject and made it really interesting. He was always willing to answer any questions. He provided a ton of information via Blackboard that was helpful for preparing for the final. His demeanor can be really intimidating but I learned so much in his class.

NOT RECOMMENDED! ANYBODY IS BETTER!The professor is definitely impossible. He knows his history but terrible at explaining the material well. CLASS IS BORING! INSOMNIA RECOMMENDED! I worked extermely hard for this class and still only got a D+, studying 6 hrs a day for those quizzes and study 48 hrs for those test.

He really knows his stuff. If you are truly interested in History, take him. If you want an easy A, stay away.

DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!!! I loved history before I took Gerlich. Every time you come to class the quizzes are worth half of your participation grade for the day. If you enjoy studying4 hours every night for a good grade then this is the class for you, if not take him for later requirements.
