THEA 324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor was disorganized and not so attentive to my questions and concerns. She seemed very full of herself and condescended to students at times. I felt like she was more interesting in impressing the class than really teaching. Also, she dressed provocatively and inappropriately at times which was distracting.

the324 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Provocative, provoking provocateur. Everything an excellent professor should be. Anyone else who thinks less of her is whining because they couldn't hack it in her class or the industry. I hate saying it but it's true.

THE325 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took several required classes with her- Extremely flawed, pretentious, makes innapropraite comments about students to other professors and student in public&private. Inconsiderate and thoughtless, unprepared. Will disregard a student's comment if she is ignorant on the topic. Chooses favorites. Downright rude and hurtful.

THE210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Somewhat terrifying at first, but you'll start to realize how great she is as the quarter goes on. DO THE READINGS. She calls on you whether your hand is raised or not expecting a somewhat intelligent answer. Your life will be insanely easier (and happier) if you just do the freaking readings and apply yourself.

Rachel's classes are not for the faint of heart, if you have her class go prepared to work. She is brilliant and is especially good at getting the students to start forming their own thoughts and theories about theatre. My advice: DO THE READINGS and SPEAK YOUR MIND and you will do just fine.

THEAdtgy Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Two words: withered ambition. I rarely got the idea this professor wanted to teach. She's barely tolerable in the classroom (unprepared, "discussion" based lectures) but an all out disaster as an adviser. Do NOT get stuck dramaturging a show under her. It'll be a tedious waste of your time.

the126 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Useless and self righteous. She has forgotten the overall meaning of TEACHING. That is unless your willing to kiss her ass and tell her how amazing she is... which she isn't. She's not even helpful as a person.

DRAMA1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The most unpleasant professor I have ever had, and among the worst people I've ever met. Her overall pretension and vile personality made the course virtually unpalatable.

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

Took dramatic crit with her and worked on dramaturgy papers. I liked her a lot more in a class setting. I met her in her 1st year & maybe she had something to prove, cause she wasn't all that nice or supportive. She does have favorites & she does push you hard, but I think, once you prove yourself a bit, she can help you grow as a writer & thinker.

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

Rachel is one of the best professors in the theatre school. Demanding, exciting, brilliant, provocative, and passionate. You will learn so much, improve your writing, and leave every class with your head spinning. This isn't a teacher for you if you're lazy, unimaginative, conventional, or dumb.
