Hard grader, extremely unorganized and not a very big help. I will never take a course with her again.

Even though I did poorly in her class, I would still recommend Dr. Murphy. I learned a lot from her! She is a very tough grader, because she expects students to be able to write at a college level, not a high school level. She can be a bit harsh if she doesn't like you as a person, but overall she's a very funny person and I enjoyed her class.

Professor Murphy expects that you will live up to the level of a college student-not a high school student. Those who rated her poorly must have had a problem writing at the college level, as she is very engaging, enlightening, entertaining and helpful.

Loved having class with her, she is fun and laid back. At first all the reading was annoying and I never saw her give some one a grader higher than an A-, and the A- was rarely seen. But overall a really cool down to earth professor who will get you to laugh once in a while.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. It may seem difficult at times when papers or readings are due, but if you keep up with the work you'll be fine. I don't believe that she has favorites, or "grades the person not the writing". I thought she was really interesting and very willing to help her students. Overall, I thought her class was fun.

I have heard that she 'monitors' this site - I expect the positive comments come from her - normally one would not expect that but she is a VERY immature person. She 'tries' to make it seem like she is 'together' but she is not. Watch your back - she grades the person not the work. Many just do not like her - she is catty & not all that smart.

Very fair grading for assignments. Interesting and engaging personality. Expects respect from her students but gives respect back equally (where it is deserved). I had no interest in the class at first but she immediately changed my mind. Without a doubt, one of my favorite college professors and one that has made a lasting impression.

Doesn't like her students - you can tell. If you do not laugh at her jokes and tell her she is great she will give you a bad grade - I started out with an A but ended with a B- and I am not sure why - she said everything was great? She says a lot of bad things about other faculty which is not cool - over heard her once making fun of her students.

I'm not sure what good grammar has to do with interpreting poetry.

Simply the best. Want more classes with her. Funny, twisted, and incredibly human. Just as interested in learning as some students.

a somewhat interesting professor, but can be a real pain in butt. Even tho i completed every assighnment on time and receved a B or higher on all of them, she dropped me a full letter grade to a C because i had one extra unnexcused absense then allowed, sorry pat, can't forgive that.

Excellent teacher, always willing to put in as much effort as the student does. Extremely fair and clear grades. She has fun with class while still getting work done. Teaches the important stuff you should know to be a successful college writer not just boring stuff. My favorite teacher so far here.

A great teacher, and made a great first impression on me for SUNYIT prefessors altogether. (A shame that some other professors can't live up to that impression.)

Incredible! Engaging! Brilliant! Humorous! You get out of this class what you put in. She operates on respect. Treat her the way you wish to be treated. It's not hard - anyone who has a serious complaint with her probably doesn't deserve to pass anyways. She's tough, but fairer than she need be.
