Hands down, he is an exceptional professor. He knows how to push students to improve themselves in an extremely positive and supportive way, a way that very few professors are able to master. I could not recommend Professor Benjamin more. Take him if you get the chance. It will become one of your best college decisions, I promise you.

Professor Benjamin is the best professor I've ever had. I would definitely suggest him to anyone who is in honors, or any other class he teaches! He really helped with my writing, he taught well, and best of all, he was just a really cool, inspiring man. Be warned - he will make you want to travel the world and climb mountains.

Professor Benjamin is a very nice and helpful teacher. However, he is somewhat more harsh towards the students with religious views. He tends to be more fond of the students who agree in the big bang and everything that goes along with it. But nevertheless, he is one of my favorite professors and he teaches very well!

Dr. Benjamin is the man! Makes class very engaging and gets all of his students involved. He does his best to relate all topics to the lives of his students. Great professor and an even better guy, if you have the chance take Dr. B for sure!

Dr. Benjamin is an incredible man. I had him for my freshman sequence and not only is he an amazing teacher, but a fantastic mentor and motivator. He makes the class incredibly interesting and I promise you'll enjoy it.

Great prof!!! Expects a lot from students but is always willing to help (responds to emails the same day). Gives ridiculously detailed notes on paper drafts that push a good writer to become a fantastic one. Stop by office hours to say hi - he loves to chat.

Awesome professor! Takes the history of pretty much everything and compresses it into a comprehensible and interesting course. He's very respectful of student's views and opinions on controversial subjects and is really down to earth. Tends to play favorites a bit though not too bad - easy grader - I'd definitely take another course with him

Benjamin is fantastic!! He is enthusiastic and great to talk to. He knows basically everything, and he makes the class a great experience. If you're in Honors with him, you get to go to Chicago, among other fun trips and activities. He gets a A+.

Best teacher ever, and i usually hate history! He is really funny and has lots of good stories to tell that relate to the text. I never miss his class! He is super inspiring and has a great austraulian accent. If you have any choice, take his Big History class! You will love it!

AMAZING professor and an incredible and inspiring person. Could not ask for a better person to teach... he has so much experience and seems so busy. But cares so much about his students, no matter what. Be sure to print out the notes and participate in class discussion! DEFINITELY TAKE HIM!

Fantastic professor! Very easy to talk to and really funny. He is extremely knowledgeable about the subject. Papers were extensive--a lot of effort required, but definitely helped to become a better writer.

Loved this class. It was interesting, inspiring, and a lot of fun. Benjamin keeps a casual atmosphere in the class and has no qualms with getting to know students on a personal level. Lectures can be a little intense sometimes, a lot of info covered in class, and papers have to be top-notch when you turn them in. Still a good experience to have!

Hands gown pest prof I have had since I have been at GVSU. I am not a history person at all, but he made the class fun. His lectures are very easy to pay attention too. Especially with his accent! ;) His class to does not require a whole lot of work. Just a few essays & you must participate in discussion. He is a somewhat tough grader. Overall GREA

Benjamin is great! He clearly is passionate about what he teaches, and he has a very broad knowledge base and can talk about anything! The class was mostly discussion, with a few lectures. He very approachable, and truly cares about every student. I didn't have a final exam when I took the class, which is a bonus! And he has an Aussie accent. =)

He is the nicest person and takes an actual interest in his students. He is a relatively tough grader on papers, but if you visit him in office hours he is extremely helpful and gives good feedback to help you get a good grade. Class is half lecture, half discussion.
