COR Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's got a big ego but I have a hard time seeing anything else. Yes, he is smart, but most of the time he is just rambling and it is only borderline academic. When I took him for Art & Culture, he constantly dropped inaccurate facts about the pieces we were looking at just to keep talking I guess. He's popular, not sure why, but I won't take him.

ANTH1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great lecturer, fun class. However has stuff on the test that are not on his study guide which make it a little difficult to control your grade. Tends to go off on tangents but they are usually very interesting.

COR114 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

COLLINS IS OUT THERE. HIS CLASS DISCUSSIONS ARE ALWAYS VERY INTERESTING AND WILL OFTEN GET YOU TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. HE COMES OFF AS COCKY SOMETIMES ... MOST OF THE TIME.. BUT STILL THE GUY HAS BRAGGING RIGHTS. HIS CLASS IS NOT EASY. LOTS OF LONG ESSAYS, JOURNAL ENTRIES, AND FORUMS EVERY WEEK... TAKE IT ONLY IF U ARE COMMITTED.

Dr. Collins is a such a genuine and caring professor. He can come off as airy but don't let this overshadow his commitment to his students!

ART290 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took an architecture class with him last semester after taking an honor seminar he taught. A brilliant man, a renaissance man. He is everything posted here - a bit flaky, a bit out there - but because he lives in that world. He has an interdisciplinary PhD. That screams liberal arts. Passionate and knows what he's talking about.Highly recommend.

AnART250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Collins gets off topic- A LOT! And I have found that some of the things he teaches are out of date or sometimes completely wrong, misquoted etc. The tests were nothing like the study guide and though he is passionate about his classes I found them a dissappointment. If you come in already knowing something about the material then you will be ok

Not a fan. Forgetful and rarely around when you need him, I think Dr. Collins is popular because students want to follow in his footsteps: all show, little work. It’s true that he’s a passionate talker. But if you press him for facts, he usually disappoints.

anthropology Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A genius, yet humble and hunmorous. Beautiful features, ladies! It is absoulutely fascinating to hear him--he is a great sepaker, and thinker, but he also has the experiences that make the class amazing. If you dont take him for class, you will miss th education of a lifetime.

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

As an Art History major, you don't have that many professors to chose from, but he definitely fulfills all of your expectations. Although he can be flaky at times, you tend to look past that because of his awesome lecturing skills. His research-style approach to this class really bothered me though because I love to hear him speak. Great guy...

Very attentive and caring. Definitely all about the Italian Renaissance but can teach you just about anything. Including the true purpose of the kama sutra. I didn't mean that in a dirty way. Really.
