CMN103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really cool professor, but wished I had taken this class pass/no pass. He is really stringent that in order to receive participation credit you have to at least have talked 15 times. Not easy, final is 60% of your grade. This class tanked my GPA and I'm not a bad student. He tests on studies more than he tests out of the book. Good riddance!

CMN 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I would highly recommend taking this class on a pass/not pass basis if you are concerned about your GPA. You will learn a lot but regardless this class will lower your GPA if taken for a letter grade. The rigor of a Penn State course without the credit.

COM 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Possibly the worst teacher I've had. He is a nice enough guy and all, but he is stupid hard. His average is 50% on exams. I'm sorry, but he isn't doing his job correctly if that is the average on exams. Avoid him at all cost.

Rude professor who refused to make exam accomodations for special needs. Not only was he rude, he insulted my background and beliefs.

CMN 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His tests are very difficult, but he does have a way that he curves grades at the end of the class so it's not impossible to get a good grade. But, if there are any other classes you can take on the subject of empirical research before this class, I would. Prior knowledge of much of the material really helped in this case.

CMN103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Palomares doesn't get enough credit. His lectures are interesting and you will gain a lot from him if you come in with the intention to learn. Your grade is based solely on a midterm (40%), and a final(60%). Yes, his class is more challenging than most CMN classes but if you go to lecture and do the readings you will be just fine.

FRS011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class was cool. We discussed gender issues among our peers; caused me to think about things I never have before. I highly recommend this class if the subject interests you. Great professor.

FRESHSEM Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Loved going into the freshseminar class; did a lot of readings but the readings were really interesting. Class discussions are the best, a lot of the students always participated in it so I learned a lot from it.He gave a lot of good insight about gender differences in communication. Easy class which comes with loads of good info! Highly recommend!

CMN103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He teaches as if it's a grad class. VERY difficult class, conflicting information, you study the professor's personal studies (how convenient). He has mediocre social skills, be forewarned when you go to talk to him and he gives you the blank stare. :-|

FRS004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I had Professor Palomares for a freshman seminar about gender communication and love it. He is an interesting professor and works in the field he teaches. He's a gold mine of information, take advantage of this.
