GHIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Seth is an AMAZING PROFESSOR! He truly cares about all his students doing well and loves teaching the material. He is really funny, and time flies-by in his class! There is a quiz every week (super easy, he tells you all the questions on it), two tests and essays throughout the semester (the essays he helps until you get an A). TAKE HIS CLASS

GHIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Seth keeps lectures entertaining with his jokes and stories about life. Every quiz and test in this course comes straight from the coursepack (plus he uploads study guides with all the questions). Very friendly and wants to know all his students! If you do all the work I don't know how you could get lower than a B+.

GHIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Quiz every week = easy. Tests are fairly difficult. Everything is short answer. The final is ridiculous: know where EVERY country is if you want to pass it. He has an attendance policy which is annoying because besides the quizzes, you don't learn much in class.

Actually enjoyed class a lot. Quiz every week, thats 5 questions and are super easy (he gives you a study guide for them too). The tests are not hard if you actually study the study guide. His class is do-able. Wish I could take him for another history class; its a lot of work but its definitely worth it when you know you'll get an A.

Very clear and insightful teacher. all the tests are straightforward from his powerpoints and he has a lot of great stories and loves his job he does have a couple of papers including a pretty important final one but overall it was a very interesting and easy class as long as you pay attention in class.

LOTS of quizzes where you have to read the book, but he gives study guides so they're really easy. The tests are the complete opposite- 25 short answers. He grades them ridiculously and won't give back points. Lots of essays that he grades pretty tough. He makes you go to office hours a lot but is usually pretty helpful during them.

HIST 377 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is Seth's area of expertise and he gets really excited to teach it. He has a lot of anecdotes about his travels there and makes lots of jokes. Weekly quizes, the midterm is essentially a big quiz, take home final, 2 book reports or a long paper, and 2 short response papers. Not too bad. Lectures are easy. This is an easy 300.

Super easy class. Weekly quizes and short assignments. Final and Midterm were short answer and the questions were given a head of time. Only two papers. He's a genuine guy and tells a lot of stories that are interesting. Wants to get to know everyone. Lectures can be dry. I honestly don't know how you could get lower than a B+.
