Phil 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class is so hard, the mid-term was 10 pages and the final project is looking to be the same length or longer. If you need to take this class choose a different professor or ENG 103. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED this class requires reading on an epic scale.

PHIL106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

HONESTLY, I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE CLASS WAS NOT HARD BUT DO NOT REALLY EXPECT HER TO REACH FOR YOU AND HELP YOU. SHE REALLY STRESSES DOING YOUR HOMEWORK AND PRACTICING ALL THE PROBLEMS FROM THE BOOK. MAJORITY OF HER TEST STRAIGHT FROM HOMEWORK AND BOOK(WHICH THINGS WE HAVE ALREADY DONE). ANYONE CAN PASS THIS CLASS; ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS THINK!!

PHIL2345 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Ms.Torres was not the best professor she really does not give students a chance i wish she would offer extra credit that would help some students a lot. What i really don't like about her is the attitude she can be very rude. I came out from this class very disappointed. Don't ever want to take it again. She's also a hard grader.

I took Philosophy during the Summer,and was so thankful to have Torres-Bower as my professor.She is enthusiastic,and is always willing to give further information and clarity of the concepts studied.During the fall, she was kind enough to let me borrow a couple of books for an English paper.I am very thankful for kindness and for trusting me.

PHIL100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I love Mrs. Torres-Bower! She is not only a very enthusiastic professor but she is knowledgeable in philosophy. She brings energy to all her seminars and really is trying to do what she can for the best interest of the class. She is a passionate teacher that is very patient and one who hopes for the best for all her students.

She is very nice and energetic. I did't know anything about philosophy and logic but she helped me understand. She even let the class retake the exam since it was still a little confusing, but after that the whole class got a better grade.

Phil104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Mrs. Torres-Bower was a very nice teacher; although, she did have her moments when she got impatient with the students.Overall, she was a super nice lady. Lecture-wise, she was great, but she struggled in giving proper directions for the homework assignments which was usually a weekly thing.Pretty easy though, passed with an A. : )

Such a great class! Philosophy can be tough, but she is passionate about the material & makes it understandable to students. If you need extra help, go to her office hours. Your grade can improve. Has cool shoes too ;)

This Prof. is not clear or organized. She does things on the fly which is very frustrating at times. Her explanations are not very clear, and examples are not good. One thing I will say is that she can be accommodating and wants her students to do well. She's just not a GREAT communicator or organized which would help greatly in Philosophy.
