MBA591 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

This is by far the best class I've taken at UIC. Michael has a lot of experience with improv, and transfers his knowledge effectively. After a long day of work and driving through Chicago traffic, I still looked forward to every one of his classes and always left in a better mood than I arrived. I wish I could take this class again

I took both Sociology 1 & 2 with Dan a few years ago. He's such a great prof and really captivating, I always enjoyed going to class. He's also really funny and helpful and was very friendly to me outside of class. I've been at Mac since taking the 1 year GAS and I haven't had a prof I've liked better than him.

He's the David Suzuki of Mohawk College. He is an amazing speaker and gives lots of examples. He keeps your interest in class - he will take dry textbook topics and and bring them to life. Tests are fair if you come to class and read. If you don't, you should fear the test. He will take the to talk about material you miss, essays, or just stuff.

SSCI0 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Currently taking his Plagues and Peoples class (basically Anthropology) at Mohawk, and i can honestly say it is the best class i have ever taken. Having been a graduate of Niagara college aswell, i have had many professors over the past few years, and Dan is probably the best. He has made anthropology extremely interesting, and enjoy his classes.

As if he needs any more positive reviews! Amazing teacher, he knows his stuff! He has a good sense of humour, and you will not be stuck listening to a monotonous voice. He is very organized and consistent, making the material easy to follow and understand. I highly recommend enrolling in his Introductory Anthropology class (for all G.A.S students)!

The best prof I have ever had. Now attending university and no one is as good as Popowich. If you have a chance to take his classes, take them. Teaching style is very clear, and if you attend regularly, you should have no problem doing well in his class!

Very knowledgeable but not boring. Attendance is mandatory as his theory is that "The best way to learn is to go to class, and write notes down" which is why he does not post them! You can tell he loves teaching because he is very thorough with everything :)
