HIST 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The class is mostly based on reading assignments that are actually really interesting. It is a good gen ed to take that is only easy if you actually do the work. The professor is nice and definitely isn't a boring lecturer. He also does look like a George Clooney stunt double.

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

I'm not a fan of History, I solely took this class b/c I'm a Psych major & felt History of Madness & Mental Health would be the perfect history class. At 1st it was rough but Prof Eghigian made it easy to learn. He's a genius and he makes it easy to retain info due to examples & humor. Plus he looks like a George Clooney stunt double haha #swag

STS101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor GE is a very intelligent professor who keeps students interested with class discussions and video's shown in class. My advice is to be sure you have read all of the material before exams and take notes during discussions. If you do this, you shouldn't have a problem obtaining at least a B.

HIST103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His slides were never posted on angel, so it is hard to write down everything he said. Tests are essay test and open notebook. If you are a bad writer don't take this class, it was interesting but there was also A LOT of reading which is what the essay tests were on. Keep up with the readings. Not an easy Gen Ed.

HIST103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

not an easy gen ed. A lot of reading-and there is no text book so you have to print out the readings every night from angel. The tests are open book essays but take lots of notes because its hard to write an essay without them. Also on the test is true/false so you have to go to class to get his lecture notes for that. worked hard got a B+

Great class. Tests are open book essays, but are not easy. You still need to study for them. Grade is from 3 tests plus discussion class attendance. Easy if you take good notes and prepare well for the exams.

HIST123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Greg is a great guy, good lecturer, and will help you out however he can. (One kid showed up to our final an hour late and greg let him finish the rest at home.) Just read the texts and participate in class and youll be all set for the tests (all open book) Not an easy A but a solid Gen ed.
