"Participation matters" "Gives good feedback" "Inspirational"

Took the course where I didn't expect it to go (in a good way)! Wasn't my easiest class of the semester, but totally worth it! Teaches you real life interview & job skills and helps you prepare for things that most classes should (but don't). Was extremely pleased with her innovative teaching methods, one of the best professors at CSUN hands down.

"Participation matters" "Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Her intelligence is intimidating. Have had her for a few classes and I'm sick of her to be honest. She's rude at times and sometimes she goes on rants. She acts like she cares about students, but at the same time it's pretty much clear she doesn't. Extremely smart, not personable.

I've had 2 class with Pic and she is the best professor I've had at CSUN. Her class is not easy but she is an amazing instructor and you will definitely learn a lot and see the world in a new light. it should be a requirement to have at least one class with her during your collegiate career. you will not regret taking her.

I have her as a teacher at LMU. She is amazing! So much energy for a night time class. She likes seminar and open discussion and class engagement.

she is probably the best professor EVER. i can't even begin to explain how great of a teacher she really is. she never leaves a student questioning, always makes sure to explain everything in depth and that everyone understands. her quizzes are easy if you go to class and take notes. she is not a hard essay (3 ESSAYS) grader either. SHE IS A MUST!

I love Prof. Picarelli!!!!! Coming to CSUN as a freshman, she certainly welcomed me with open arms. I learned so much about her class, myself, and others around me. I highly recommend this course. She is very inspirational and moving. She changed my life, and I can say she is my favorite professor at CSUN so far. TAKE HER YOU WON'T REGRET IT !!!!!

Amazing teacher. Actually expects things of her students. She shows a high level of care for her students as individuals but is not going to let you get away with anything. If you do what is required, you will do well. The requirements are very clear. BEST TEACHER FOR THIS CLASS.

It is ok. The usual. Quizzes, projects, papers. She is a tough grader; that's mainly because she is smart. She uses powerpoint for her lectures mainly but all you really have to do is listen to what she is saying and take notes. If you do end up taking her class--be prepared. It will mess with your feelings. That was the one thing I DID NOT like.

Pic is not an easy A, you have to do everything and work hard to get a good grade, but the work is very interesting. Pic makes this course interesting and teaches in a way where she makes the curriculum she teaches relevant to every day life. I highly recommend you take her!

Pretty cool professor. Learned a whole lot and will inspire you on a daily basis. Only thing I didn't like was the amount of work packed into the last month of the semester. 6 quizzes. 2 papers. 2 presentations. Attendance is mandatory. Really had to work for that A. If you are interested in this subject I def. recommend taking this class with her

I have had Pic for a few classes, and she is the most amazing professor at CSUN. She is so fun and inspirational, I try to take every class she teaches. I was so scared to take adv. public speaking, but I knew if it was with her she would make me feel comfortable, and I was right. She really wants to be sure her students learn. TAKE HER!!!!

She is a very energetic teacher & very interested in the subject matter. Although the class is fairly easier she is a tough grader. Attendance is a must if you want a grade higher than a C+
