REL153 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Brown is simply awesome! There is a lot of reading for an intro level course, but you can get by without reading all of it. Very helpful in office hours, and she is brilliant! She also brought in lots of interesting speakers!

REL215 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This was my first REL course and I was definitely not prepared. Lots of prior knowledge is needed to understand anything Brown says on the first day. She's very smart. I worked really hard to stop getting Cs and Bs to earn an A on a homework paper. But it became my favorite class and I absolutely loved her, she's so nice

Fantastic professor, very helpful. Even though lectures are long they're interesting. Put in a little effort and you'll enjoy the class.

If you are an interested, hard-working individual, Professor Brown's course will build a good academic rigor for you in the future. If you are not prepared to discuss topics/read materials/prepare for class in general, seek out some other course to clog.

Professor Brown is the best teacher I have had at W&L. Her classes are pretty hard, but she is brilliant and her lectures are really interesting. She is very willing to help you outside of class. If you go to her office hours, she will readily give you advice about your papers and advice about life. She is amazing--definitely take her class!

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

ABrown is absolutely brilliant as well as one of the most kind and helpful profs at W&L. She rewards enthusiasm even if you're not an expert on the Bible. She truly cares about her students and will talk with you about religion (or pretty much anything else) during office hours.

One of the best professors I've had at W&L. Very clear and interesting lectures, and extremely helpful outside of class/ during office hours for papers, etc. I would highly recommend this class and professor.

Extremely smart woman. Tangents (she loves 'em) are extremely interesting. Took religion all through high school and learned more from this class. Not extremely difficult, but not a pushover. Do the Biblical readings and Ehrman and you should be fine.

Rel 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The worst class I've taken at W&L. If you're not a bible expert before you take this class, don't even think about showing up the first day. Completely unhelpful if you're not a god squader. All I learned was Jesus may or may not have been holy.

Rel 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took this class 2 years ago and don't know why I didn't rate her. Do not take Rel 102 if you aren't a religion major. She actually said "If you are a religion major I think the intro class should be the hardest", when there was only 1 rel major in the class. I had to do xtra cred. to pull a B, & on a paper she basically called me stupid.

Rel 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I'm not a religion major but it's clear that if you are she is the professor that will change your life. She knows her material so well that it's hard to tell what to take notes on in her lectures, but the tangents are more than worth listening too. Very reasonable with her expectations for a 102 class - a lot of reading though

such a smart professor and truly passionate about the field. overall she's a difficult professor, but if you don't take another religion course, take the new testament.
