Wonderful professor!! Knows what she is talking about and her dry sense of humor makes class fun. Her tests can be difficult and are mostly short answer but you will learn a lot.

Awesome! Come to class and take notes and you will do great. You do not need the book-save your money! She is fair and easy to understand and she is patient when you are taking her notes. She will answer any questions you have. Very knowledgeable!

No matter what class you have with Dr. Thiel you can do well if you come to class and take notes. If you don't show up for class or take notes then you will fail. It's that simple. She is a nice lady, but she will get frustrated with you if you keep asking questions but don't pay attention.

one of the worst teachers I've ever had. She is a professor in archeology, a field that requires digging and yet she can't even stand up. Her lectures are long and boring and if you disagree with her about your grade tough luck. Her theories are often wrong and outdated. Lady needs to be fired

I really like her. The first time I took her was the beginning of my junior year, and her teaching threw me off a bit because I wasn't used to it. She does expect you to know a lot for her tests, and they're mainly essay or short answer, but once you get the hang of her teaching, you'll do fine. She's knowledgeable and loves what she does.

Great teacher! Made the class fun and the material easy to understand! Decided to go into arch. because of her classes. Go to class and study for tests and you'll do fine. Don't need the book at all.

I like her Archaeology class. She sits down to teach because of health problems, but that doesn't bother me. As long as you take good notes and study, the tests aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be. She answers questions even if they don't relate to class. She's nice and has a good sense of humor. No text book needed.

Great class! It's only demanding for those who do not attend regularly and do not ask questions.

Because of Professor Thiel's class, I am now on my way to a career in archaeology. She wrote me a great letter of recommendation, too.

One of the few teachers I have that both knows the material and actually gives knowledge to students. It was overwhelming to some, but then those people never showed up to class. Notes are a must and she goes over a lot, but her style of oration and outline is perfect for taking notes.

Don't buy the textbook unless you just want to waste money. Attendance isn't mandatory but the only way to pass her tests are to come to class and take notes. Tests are fairly hard, but if you come to class should be fine. Contrary to what some have said she actually does answer questions and restates things more clearly if asked.

Dr. Thiel is a really good professor! We had 4 Exams they all range from TF/MC/and Essay. You don't have to know every single detail and write it perfectly down on the exam. Don't buy the text book, you have to study and come to class! It's really not to bad. The lab is a pain and there is alot of confusing things like: bones, genetics. Good Class!

This professor is easy, but only if you study!! She gives clear study guides, she just expects you to know the material (gasp). She is very knowledgeable and as long as you pay attention in class you will do fine. Her personality may be "dull" for some but she cares a great deal about what she does and this is reflected in her teaching.

Very monotonous. Rushes into notes, doesn't answer questions very clearly. If you don't take notes, you're screwed. If you don't think exactly how she does, you're screwed on tests. Don't ever imply everything- state it blatantly or she'll take points off. Very very boring class. Not recommended for people who fall asleep easily in class.
