ENGL2140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hitchcock's teaches in a lecture style so speak up in class because he really wants to know your opinions. His grading technique is weird but if you have any questions hes very willing to help out! I suggest you go to class and meet with him to discuss papers before tunring them in. Read the assignments and speak up in class and youll be fine!

Dr. Hitchock's class is awesome. Do the reading, talk in class and it won't be so boring. Don't take his suggestions lightly and go see his office, it's pretty cool. Plus, he will really help you out with your writing. All in all, a great man and a great teacher. Very easy to get along with if you show up to class prepared.

dr hitchcock is an interetsing teacher, i like him as a person but i don't really know how i feel about him as a professor. he is definitely hard and his class requires attendence and effort, you will be busy but you learn alot about writing and come out as a much better writer. don't be late, speak up, and GO TO CLASS. this class makes you grow.

ENG1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Hitchcock was the worst professor I had in the English department, and I took no less than six English classes. I graduated in the top 5% of my class, and I still couldn't understand what this man was talking about half of the time. His comments on papers and exams were ridiculous and his assignments are way too long and boring. BOO!

2217 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy and an entertaining (mostly) selection of works. Likes students to come by his office for writing help. Gives a lot of borderline grades, but an A- is fairly easy if you're a strong writer. Requires a lot of reading, yes, but it is a literature class. When given the opportunity to participate in class, take it.

ENGL 1107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hitchcock is totally awesome in every respect. However, you can't approach his class like most classes. He talks the whole time. Imagine you are listening to a speech by Mark Twain, and he will make you smile. His assignments are tough, and he will make you work hard. If you ever get bored, just watch his eyebrows. Trust me, they're insane.

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

He definately likes to lecture. However, when he does give the opportunity to talk, speak up, it will help you out. There is a WHOLE lot of reading, so do not get behind. Make sure to study the authors and dates for the tests, those are important. Also, try to take notes so that you will have them for each test; know the material!

Great professor. Class is very easy with simple written assignments and a reasonable amount of reading. Essay topics allow a lot of freedom in writing.
