CLAS236 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Greek history was a lot of fun with Garland. He's very passionate about his subject. Reading is very important in this class and he really likes the people who speak up. 3 short papers on interesting topics made the class very manageable. He was always ready to help develop a paper topic. Really enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Core 151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Boring, but helpful... until he learned I was in a fraternity, at which point his entire demeanor changed in an instant. From then on he was a complete jerk, ignored my input, scewed me on grades, total change of attitude and completely unprofessional. I've heard of others having the same trouble with him. What a waste.

Core 151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Garland is a really nice guy and is super excited about the material for western trad - makes class a lot more bearable. however, he lectures a lot and although he opens things to class discussion, it isn't enough to keep everyone's attention all of the time. His enthusiasm makes up for this overall, though.

GREK 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The most amazing professor I have ever studied under. He is patient, empathetic, brilliant, funny, and friendly. Anyone who thinks he is a poor language teacher must just suck horribly at languages. He is a fair grader, and always willing to help a student out. Take a class with him!

He's Great! Even though he is better for material culture classes, Garland is still a wonderful language professor. He is so funny and makes class a joy. He is also very helpful and will work hard with his students.
