"Clear grading criteria" "Inspirational" "Lectures are long"

Dr. Afolayan truly wants all of his students to succeed in life, he is very inspirational. If you read the chapters and take notes (they are very long), easy A. Go to class as much as possible he hints at whats on the test. EASY grader. Reading will take place of homeworkstudying. Horrible communication with students though. Would recommend.

KSP 235 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Dr. Afolayan is extremely passionate about human development, and it shows in his teaching. He is entertaining, and loves his job. Very helpful when asking questions. On the tests some questions are worded a little strangely, so clarity is a bit of any issue, other than that, totally enjoyable class! Study for the exams, read the text, and succeed!

Easy easy easy, he is funny, sings in class, as long you read the chapters and also study the vocab, you will do really good on his test. Go to class every time, do you work and you will not have anything to worry about. I took this class in the summer

Very interesting class. If you took psychology 101, the content is pretty much the same. He is a super nice man and means well. He is hard to understand sometimes but if you do all the busy work like read the book and come to class you will get an A.

He is a very passionate man, and a great educator. At first, he was really hard to understand with his heavy accent but I got used to it. There is a lot of work in the class. You must read the book and take notes because he checks your notes every few weeks. If you read, you will pass.

KSP 235 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Get ready for a lot of work in this class and taking notes for two chapters each week, chapters that are 40 pages long each. Required to take notes on each chapter and are graded on notes before the test. Very confusing, and does not understand 50% of people's questions. Tests aren't very hard. Be sure you read syllabus. Hated this class..

He is a really passionate teacher and nice guy. He always makes class interesting. The only bad thing is his directions are not clear. Pay attention to the syllabus and study for the tests. Then you can get an A.

KSP 235 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He makes such an interesting class so boring, confusing, and terrible. He is a terrible professor. Attendance is mandatory if you want it to help your grade in the end. I had a B after the final. Asked if my attendance would help me get an A and he said it wouldn't. I had gotten an A once grades were posted. He doesn't know what he's talking about.

He is the WORST professor I've ever had. He's difficult to understand and does not understand you when you ask him a question (no matter how simple it is). He is stuck in his ways and can't take any criticism without feeling attacked. Will make students cry and leave class on a regular basis. I do not recommend him at all.

Dr. Afolayan was my favorite professor this semester. He's not hard to understand. He's always passionate about all the things he talks about in class. He's full of energy. Yes, he does randomly call on people. Very scary at first but you get use to afterwards. I suggest anyone to take this course. Study the vocab in the book!! goodluck !

KSP239 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Easy class, but do not listen to him. Study the vocab in the texts and you'll be okay. He is opinionated and calls on people during class for their opinions, if they do not match his, then you are wrong. He also makes life promises to you that he has no right to. If you ask him questions after class he will make you feel stupid for asking.

He is very unclear and at times difficult to understand. I do not think he should be a professor by the way he speaks and conducts his class. This has been my least favorite class I have ever had.

Nice guy. Tended to be unclear of his expectations of the class and the upcoming assignments. Very excited about what he is teaching. Go to class and study from the book. Notes he gives in class come right from the back of each chapter reading assignment.

Dr. Afolayan is one of my favorite professors. He is extremely passionate about teaching Human Development. A good prerequisite is to make African friends so that you can understand what he is saying. He is not difficult to understand at all. The papers we had to write were easy. I eagerly participated in class and ended up with an A. Don't be shy.

Dont really understand why some people are ripping on him, he is not hard to understand really, he teaches the material in a way you will understand, and provides help for papers. Class is not hard at all, if you attend class almost everytime and do the required work you're guarenteed a B, also he is an easy grader on the papers.

Hard to understand. Be careful on how you answer his questions... This should be a writing intensive course because of how many papers you have to write on top of 16 chapters of notes that you have to show to him in class. Take only if you have to, otherwise find a different class to take!

He is insane. He makes you feel stupid of you answer a question wrong. He's hard to understand cuz he has a strong African accent. He basically reads off the books definitions. His tests are confusing. And his papers are stupid that he assigns and if you don't understand he won't explain.. Too bad he's the only prof for this class

I really loved this class. In my four years of college he is the most passionate teacher I've ever had. Come to class and do the notes and easy papers and you'll pass with no problem. I hate college but I loved this class! I suggest you take this class because once you get to know him the class becomes fun and is essentially an easy A!
