Honestly, if you seek extra help,the help from Prof. Ady will be anonymous. If you're lucky, he'll help, but if not, he won't. If he won't, don't go to the Academic Success Center because it won't also help.

Very knowledgable professor and very helpful to students. He isn't too tough of a grader and he assigns pretty interesting and relevant assignments. Reading isn't too heavy and class discussions are enjoyable. He's funny and interesting, isn't afraid to be truthful and real in discussions.

ENG220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Awful awful professor. graded unfairly and was the most arrogant, narrow minded person i've ever met. His sly side comments we're entirely unnecessary and uncalled for. One of the worst professors i've had in my entire career as a studen.

Really smart guy, sparks your interest in the class. He expects a lot from his students, but you learn some really interesting things.

Media Analysis - I love this class! The class is interesting, never a dull moment. Ady seems to genuinely want to see his students succeed in this class. He offers 6 essay assignments but only the 4 highest grades count - great chance for improvement. My only complaints are that he didn't respond to emails and I don't know what he means by "color."

Intro to Media Analysis --- Take this class! Prof. Ady is the man. Interesting, insightful and always exciting; never a dull moment in this class. There are nightly homework assignments, but they are interesting. This is a class in which you will actually learn something that matters. Go for it!

Eng Comp Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Every essay you write you have to count your verbs. You can't use words like is ,am,are,was,were,be,being,and been more than 10 times. Very annoying. Lots of work, most of it tedious. I dont think he likes teaching such a low level course so he's tough. Nevertheless, great guy and very helpful. You will learn.

Excellent Prof and great class. Very laid back and class attitude was fun and relaxed. Hard grader, but offers a lot of options. has total of 6 papers, but you only have to do 4... if you do all 6, he takes the highest grade of 4. I'd def take him again, my hat's off to Ady! One of the best!!!

Coolest guy, maybe one of the best teachers at Assumption. He expects alot, and the workload is heavy sometimes, but you'll learn a ton, and likely never be bored.
