SOC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Pitt is an awesome professor. He is hilarious, and keeps the lectures exciting. He could make any material interesting. He is, however, a tough grader and expects a lot from his students. If you dont go to class and keep up with the work you will not do well. Definitely worth taking the class with him even though it was hard

SOC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Pitt was funny and his class was very interesting. However, there was a lot of ambiguity on his exams and the 10 page SINGLE SPACED paper assignment at the end of the semester seemed a tad rushed. All in all, not a horrible course, but it was a lot more stressful than I thought an intro class would be. Take if you have an easy course load.

SOC254 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Awesome professor, very interesting class. But, class is very hard! If your goal is to get an A, do not take this class. Lots of very long papers, not too clear about the grading. But, if you want to have an interesting and fun class, and you are okay with working hard and getting a B, then take it. Pitt is a cool guy.

Good teacher, keeps class going. The subject material is pretty simple so sometimes it may seem dry. Go to class listen and participate. can be an easy a.

Dr. Pitt is the best teacher I have ever had for a class in my entire educational career. I thought this class was going to be awful and it was the greatest!

SOC254 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Interesting man. Class was quite ambiguous as far as grading. He never said what he really wanted. Everything was done in SINGLE-SPACED typing including the final 7 PAGE paper (awful). He did make the class fun, but overall, I'd never take another one of his classes. It was concrete enough.
