ANTH210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's really vague. His tests are impossible, usually the averages are around 61%. Thankfully, the labs have lots opportunity for extra credit. He only shows up for class about half the time. When he doesn't, they just show some boring video. Would not recommend the class.

Ron is a great professor and a remarkable archaeologist. Honestly, if you come to class, listen to his lectures, and read what is required, he will respect you. If you have no aspiration to do anything, then don't bother showing up. This is not an easy class.

He is hilarious! The tests can be near impossible for a normal student though. The class average for the first and second test in my class were around 60 percent. Good luck if you decide to take this class.

Awesome teacher who isn't afraid to tell it how it is. Always makes students laugh during every class and he knows his stuff! go to class because he actually gives you credit for coming! He will respect you if you respect him :)do the extra credit/museum papers early in the semester so you know where you sit in the class because tests are hard!

Schirmer is a blast! Schirmer's real world views will have you relating to the man all the time. His class is no joke, take everything seriously but enjoy your time there. Respect Ron and he will respect you back!

Anthr102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This guy knows his stuff, but he's a bit of a tool. He swears a lot and expresses non-neutral opinions too much for the position he is in. The class itself is fairly easy overall. The tests are kind of tough, but bad scores are easily neutralized by the ridiculous amount of extra credit points given away. Weekly papers are tedious.

This man is a genious in his field. His vocabulary is very...complicated. Very passionate about what he teaches. Swears alot. Don't buy the book, didn't use it at all. Tests were extremely difficult. Very opinionated. He has weekly papers and a museum trip worth 60 points is required. Takes attendance at random, common on fridays.

ANTH102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Schirmer really cares about his students and that they learn the material. He always has a study guide available for every exam & always sets up review days.He gives random extra credit quizes & extra credit papers. class is extremely hard for 100 level, but if you study & do the work, you'll be fine. He's the best anthro instructor at MSU!
