Ethics 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Inspirational" "Hilarious" "Respected by students"

Professor Allen is a great guy, he does talks a lot about himself but I really like his stories, and he is a very respectful person. quizzes are easy (open book and unlimited tries), middle and final tests are long but very easy (open book), two short diversity papers. overall, if you need the credit you should take this class you won't regret it

He does talk about himself a lot but if you actually pay attention you see how it relates to the subject matter. He is an awesome professor.

All he does is talk about himself and doesn't tell you anything about the chapters and whats going to be on the quizzes. All the quizzes and tests are online so I stopped going to class because its so pointless. DON'T take this course unless you want an online.

Very interesting fellow to say the least. goes off on a tangent most the time during lecture but I would always walk away a satisfied student because of that.The intro courses are easy peasy so that's probably why he isnt such a stickler during lecture. I learned alot from Mr. Allen, both in terms of ethnic studies and life in general.

ETHN100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dropped. For an online class, he required students to attend multicultural events every two weeks. People take online classes because they can't get to campus. I commute and when I was on campus, I was in class and had no time to attend events. Wrote own textbook, his class was run through publisher. Expensive book is worthless, can't be resold.

I rarely show up to this class. He's boring and talks about himself and a bunch of useless stuff. If I didn't have to take this class for my major I wouldn't of. This class is awful.

Very easy class. People get pissed cause he does talk about himself alot and his past experiences but he is after all a PROFESSOR not a teacher. He doesn't need to follow a state mandated curriculum. If you don't learn in class, then use the book like you're supposed to.

I'm also taking his class this fall 2013 and I must disagree with others, he is rude and the most worst professor compare to the other four I have this semester.

He is the worst professor ever. Don't take him. He makes you go online and do stupid questions. The only thing he wants is for the students to purchase his own textbook for the course. Don't waste your time.

ETHN 202w Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Allen is one of the most interesting prof's I have ever had, very friendly guy, very knowledgeable, but he lectures all class period about his life stories which is okay but you are graded on attending class so you have to be there. You watch a movie or two, and he grades the papers I felt very generously, the class is easy and he is awesome!

Dr. Allen is cool but he really loves to tell stories about himself. Pretty interesting and out there kind of guy, but you have to be willing to listen to constant life stories. Class is just a show up for points and essays are graded generously.
