HIST 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

He is awesome! If you don't like history he is the person to take. plus he isn't bad to look at. but he loves what he talks about and and long as you try he gives you the grade you worked for. and not what you actually had.. my test grades averaged to be a 84, but he gave me an A because i always went to class and looked like i payed attention

HIST202 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Have heard nothing but good things about this man. Couldn't fit his class into my schedule so took it online. Easy A if you read or skim the book. Four discussion boards each covering 4 sections and only two tests. Discussion boards are basically participation grades. Dr. Finley comments back with his students and keep things simplistic. Great job

HIST 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you can take him DO IT!! He's helpful and understanding and knows that we're not all History majors. He loves teaching and sometimes you don't have to go to every class. But if you do miss it might be difficult to get notes from other classmates. Study guides are given for each test. Take him you won't regret it

HIST202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of the best history professors ever. He realizes that not everyone is a history major and adjusts his lower level classes to appeal to non-history majors. Take him! You will not regret it!

HIST202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is an instructor who clearly enjoys what he does and who cares greatly about the success of his students. He is the essence of what teaching should be all about. There is no reason whatsoever to not take this professor for as many of your historical needs as possible, and to do so otherwise would make you an "egghead." Finley all the way.

BEST HISTORY TEACHER EVER!!! take him if you can. If you go to class and study exactly what he tells you will be on the exam you will get an A. I hate history, but he made me enjoy it. I would take another history class just to have this professor. TAKE HIM!

his202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Incredible teacher! He knows what he is talking about and makes sure we understand what he is talking about. The tests come straight off the study guide, and we never use our textbooks because he hates them. Extremely great teacher, and he's easy on the eyes

He is a great teacher!! I really enjoyed him and the class! His test or simple and he gives a study guide and will go out of his way to make sure everyone passes! It is probably harder to fail this class then to pass, TAKE THIS TEACHER!! and he is pretty nice to look at.

I am taking the video course online. It is hosted by Angie Anderson, but she brings in different lecturers for each topic. I get excited every time it's Dr. Finley. He is excellent, and keeps me interested. Great, great, GREAT professor.

SE101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Nice to look at. He is passionate about everything that he teaches (history) but realizes that SE 101 is a blow off class and no one wants to be there less than him. Bouncy, energetic, tells humorous anecdotes. I'll def. be taking his history classes.
