CTSJ 180 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

Prof Griffin is clearly brilliant. That being said, I think that he has some difficulty explaining some of the more difficult concepts to students. Work is doable, the tests/quizzes are with partners and are easy. I personally wasn't a huge fan of the class but it's easy to do well and you learn a lot. Overall, good class and good prof. Take it.

CTSJ180 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Stupidity is an amazing class if you let yourself see things from a new perspective. Griffin is a great professor - makes you think, gets you out of your comfort zone to talk about things you'd never imagine, and doesn't mind laughing. Fun class, do-able work, and you'll be surprised what it does for you even when you leave the classroom.

He's more honest and open about all issues, particularly sexuality and race, than almost anyone at Oxy. He knows he's intimidating, and he knows he can mess with your head, and that's what education is all about: seeing the world in a different way.

Do yourselves a favor, kids. and take a class with this man before you graduate. The material is challenging, absolutely. But if you really engage in it and go talk to him, you will not get lost. Midterms and finals are done in pairs. They are take-home. Don't let his vocabulary scare you. If you ask him to clarify something, he will!

Stup1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Griffin tries to be intellectual which is hilarious given he graduated from Pacific Union, a bottom of the barrel university. Has psychological issues which he ironically tries to help others with...Don't get me started on his dislike for caucasians....other then that a great teacher
