This is the hardest class I've ever taken in my life but also the most rewarding and most interesting class I've ever taken. I really enjoyed the class and I would definitely recommend taking it but it is a lot of work so keep that in mind.

He knows everything about everything. He may seem daunting at first, but he's really just teaching you how to learn. Once you learn his style, you'll know exactly what to look for on his tests and you'll know exactly what he wants. Definitely go to his office hours.

PSYCH111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great professor. Very engaging lectures with a lot of interesting tangents. Take VERY good notes in class even on the tangents as they could all show up on the tests. Don't be intimidated by a bad grade on the first test or two--they get easier as time goes on. Just don't try to cram in this class--it won't work.

My favorite teacher at W&L. Brain and Behavior is a challenging class, but the vast knowledge you gain from it makes it worth it. It is definitely possible to get an A, as long as you keep up with the reading and take succinct notes. I suggest reading and highlighting a chapter one day and then reviewing it the next. Recommendation: TAKE IT

Pysc111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The class is hard but it gone be done. There are two approaches to conquer it. One you can make flashcards a week ahead of the test and just keep doing them every night until you get the most of the words. The second strategy is the higlhight and rewrite where you go through the book highlighting the key terms and rewriting them.

Prof. Lorig was such a great lecturer! Class wasn't mandatory, but you never want to miss one because they are so interesting. Take lots of notes and keep up with the reading and you will do fine. Prepare for the tests like you should and you'll get the grade you deserve.

Great and interesting class. Although the tests were hard and there was a lot of material, it is is one of the most interesting classes that I've taken at W&L. You may have some trouble if you're not a "science person," but Prof. Lorig is very helpful if you do need it.

Odd guy. Hard to read. Nice enough but does not explain his expectations well at all. Better suited for research than teaching.

Knows his stuff and can be quite humorous. If you keep up with your reading this will be your average class. If you slack off, this class will be HARD... VERY HARD. Trust me.

Psych 120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Not a bad course, if you're a science major. Don't take it unless you are. Good bit of work, but manageable if you keep on top of it. Tests take some getting used to. Expects you to figure out a lot on your own. Generally nice, helpful guy though.
