ANTH204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Where do I even begin? Prof. Croes liked me (a 17 year old girl) a little too much. I almost filed a report. His assignments were unclear, and I basically learned nothing. Super easy A. The only reason to come to class is because he takes attendance. Unless you have a ton of patience and are interested in the field, stay away.

Archaeology Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great professor! He's a really nice guy who's so enthusiastic about what he does. Fun class, I only took it because it was at the right time and the professor reviews were good, but I had no idea that I enjoy archaeology! Very fun, take his class!

Great teacher! Enjoyed his class very much. There is a lot of reading and at first I was going to drop the class. I am so glad I did not as I learned a lot. I was ultimately surprises how interesting the class was. Do your homework and you will do fine.

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

This guy seriously changed my life. He really believes in potential of students and their ability to learn new things and to change the science with them. He is one of the Northwest's most accomplished and knowledgeable archaeologists. It's also refreshing to meet a teacher who is technically a "scientist" who cares about belief and spirituality.

ANTH204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE TEACHER. He is nice as a teacher and the class is an easy A as long as you do the work, but he teaches you almost nothing. ALL homework is done in large groups. You have group presentations EVERY week. And NOBODY EVER understands ANY of his assignments. He is friendly but I would never take another class from him. NOBODY in my class would.

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

Online Pacific Northwest Natives class. Lectures are written up kind of weird, but that's mostly thanks to the "angel" website. You'll get used to it fast if you try. Croes' enthusiasm actually reached through a computer screen and that is amazing. Weekly assignments were class discussion. Two 5-page papers. You get what you put into this class!

ANTH206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took an online class- it required alot of reading and writing but the grading was easy. If you did the assignment on time you got full points. The lectures were laid out strange and hard to understand but the texts were pretty interesting.

Prof. Croes is an extremely good professor. He is a working anthropologist which helps to enhance the class. He constantly makes himself laugh, which in turn makes everyone else laugh as well. Very supportive. Lecture based with great hands on opportunities. Easy A, but you still learn ALOT. changin my major because of this class.

Anth206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Online class requires fairly large amount of writing, but if you do it, & make an honest effort, you will likely do well. Dr. Croes does not so much grade as cheerlead, and he's almost too appreciative of student effort (as opposed to actual quality of work), but you can't fault his enthusiasm, or his ability to bring out the best in his students.

Good teacher. Is really passionate about what he is teaching. Grading (for me) was always 100% credit. I would take him again.

ANTH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the nicest, most helpful teachers I have ever had. If you are looking for a simple class, this is an easy A. However, he is excellent at seeing which students are actually interested in anthropology and is very helpful if you want to know more. He is super-intelligent, funny and provides wonderful opportunities to get involved.

Nice easy going guy but the class is torture. He constantly calls on people and asks them random question that he never even went over. He gets sidetracked all the time talking about what he likes to do outside of class.
