SOC 361 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Loved the professor & the class! She really opened my eyes to the historical context behind sociology. She presents the material very well. Exams on every two founders we learned, that were easy, if you studied! She gives extra credit assignments and attendance points, so go to class!

SOC105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Great professor! I took this only as a DEC and ended up loving the course. The material is interesting and the workload is not too much; only a few papers and some reading. Easy A.

SOC 361 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

The topics covered in class aren't exactly the most intriguing. However if you're interested in the material, it definitely is fascinating seeing as the subjects build on the foundation of sociology. There are four exams including the final, which is the only cumulative test. Do the reading, attend class regularly and you'll pass

361 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Attendance mandatory, would suggest reading- at least the readings in the reader, skim the textbook. She tries to make boring material interesting though. Tests are multiple choice but semi- difficult and not really straight forward. Not a bad class though

SOC 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

The class is very day itself. as long as you do all the homework and reading for jocks and burnouts you can get an easy 20ish points. but she is very annoying in class but a decent teacher

SOC 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

easy class, annoying professor. use any version of the textbook you can get your hands on cause in the end it doesnt even matter. It's all mysoclab questions. She also likes to use questions like "your professor thought that one time on some afternoon when she was muttering some nonsense under her breath that.." Easy class, but not fun at all.

The Prof is easy. tho it may come to a cost considered restrictive to most people- assigned seatings, strict attendance policies, stops class if a cell phone is seen, drags the lectures on right until the period ends, & treats you like your in High school. But the class is easy, Read the Soclabs, book & slides- spit it out on the exam- Get an A.

This is not a very difficult class what so ever. All you need to do to get an A is to read the textbook (THOROUGHLY)and google the summaries of the articles she assigns. If you want an A take this class.

soc105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Her class is very entertaining. She tells stories to keep student engaged. Mostly importantly, she tends to use herself as an example for almost everything. No need to study too much for this class cuz its mostly common sense. NEVER BUT TEXTBOOK/accesscode FOR THIS CLASS, WE NEVER USE IT. Never even use it!

SOC247 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Quite possibly one of the most ignorant and uneducated people I've ever encountered. If she can become a professor, none of us have an excuse. She assigns seats, takes attendance, and her tests had questions like "Your professor believes... ___" despite her beliefs being wrong. She's stubborn and has selective hearing. Avoid if you can.
