PHI 290 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This was the second time I took Dr. Yanovitch and he is absolutely amazing. His dharma talks really open up your mind to a whole new way of thinking. If you want to become a better human being I highly suggest taking a class with him! No tests, no quizzes, no homework, no final! Just one 5 page paper due the last day! 100% take a class with him!!

PHI 209 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Yanovitch is a great man and very caring. He will help you if you show interest. He's a stickler with unexcused absences. Usually only two grades: paper and a presentation. If you show your true greatest effort he will usually help you with your grade. I recommend him for anything, I've have him twice! Love Yanovitch!

ETH280H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Basically two components to grade: presentation and final paper. Hand in paper early so he can offer corrections bc he takes off points meticulously for little things. Participation can help class discussion stay interesting but was not mandatory. Attendance looked at very importantly so don't miss class. Discussions always thought provoking.

Philosophy101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

It was painful going to this class.....if you're taking this as a "gen ed" don't with him. Theres one giant paper at the end of it all (10-15pages) so its your only grade. if u care about your cumulative just don't bother with him. He's a nazi with grading. I really didn't care for him idk why people make him out to be great..

He is a very, very smart man! I've learned soo much from his class. I hate that he embarrasses students & puts them on the spot! There is no homework and the class is basically discussion. He's funny but weird.

Phi 268 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I've taken him 4 times and over all he is a great professor. My advice to you is finish your paper a little earlier and give it to him to correct. Makes a BIG difference. Trust me. He is picky and a hard grader but will go over it for you before it is due. There are no tests. Just the paper and attendance. He is a great teacher and encourages discu

The best core class ever! Dr. Yanovitch has a prolific mind and loves to share his knowledge. You will learn so much about yourself throughout the course. Highly recommend!

Dr. Yanovitch is THE BEST. He's an amazing professor and this class is very interesting. Only two grades- a presentation and a paper at the end of the semester. Hilarious and very compassionate man. Take him any chance you get!

PED195 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Take Yanovitch's Yoga class! It's so relaxing and def a guaranteed A as long as you miss no more than one class and do the final paper. He also allows anyone to come to his class. So even if you're not enrolled in the class..or school haha you can do Yoga with Yanovitch:D

COR347 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Yanovitch is truly amazing! Def take his Existentialism class as a Core class over anything else. Although the weekly 2-3 page papers can get annoying, they're not bad at all. We watched a movie every week and those movies+the papers really help you learn a lot about yourself! Oh there was also a 6 page final paper so the work load is not bad:)

COR390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He was so great! Really clear and easy. He didn't make my 4 hr core class a bore at all. I am now going to take him in the fall. Btw- no tests or quizzes. One long paper but it's reflective so not a big deal at all. Also had to memorize a sonnet which was kind of hard but he helped you if you messed up.

He is probably the best teacher I will ever have. You take a small amount of notes in the class, but his lessons really stick to your brain. Philosophy is already an interesting class and Dr. Yanovitch does an amazing job to prove it. He is a tough grader though, tough but fair, I'd say. He really opens your mind

He is soo interesting!! He will make you think and he would want a good argument about why you believe in anything! Took him and he's really good, a tough grader though.

Dr. Yanovitch is truly an inspiration. Grades are based on Presentation and Group Discussion.
