Design 7 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Tough Grader"

Extremely rude to his students, he claims he wants to help you grow as a designer, but he constantly puts down what you do and does not stand up for you. He spends too much time on floor plans, you don't have time to actually do the rest of the project. Also, when looking at project,if he's tired he says "I don't care, I don't wanna go over that.."

Intd-206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is awful. You can't understand him, he's inconsistent, go goes on random tangents all the time, he is straight up rude to students, and makes you redo drawing 5 billion times for irrelevant things and then still tell you its wrong anyway. Do not take him, you will regret it.

Des 3&4 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Has the best of intentions, but should spend the rest of his career 'inventing' things outside of the classroom. Not consistent, ever. Tells you to redesign your project and in the next class wonders why you changed a thing. Totally not helpful in defen

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

UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR, GEEEEESH!!! How many times do I have to say it?? Speaks in English, but his thought processes are in Martian. We need a textbook because your explanations of what we need to do just don't cut it.

U'll learn nothing, be totally confused the whole time. not about learning, it's about listening 2 Alex tell u he's great. he marks ur stuff & says how awful it is. prepare to redo it endlessly, makes him feel important because he sucks so bad

Although I agree with most of the comments listed, I do believe he is a very good teacher. He knows what he is talking about and wants all his students to succeed. During your crits, he will be the first one to come to your defense.

Design 7 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

He genuinely cares about students, but after he gets done trying to relate his point about ur project to one of his revolutionary designs, u're left dazed and confused. Interupts u, assumes what u're going 2 say, doesn't listen well with others
