ENG 120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Prof. Carroll was a great teacher. He makes the subject really interesting and makes 4 hours of night class a breeze. He keeps the class interesting with his great PowerPoint's and jokes. He keeps the class engaged during lecture and values everyone's opinions. I am glad that I took his class this semester. A lot of writing though. But its worth it

ENG100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Best teacher I have ever had!! He really makes students think outside the box. His classes are always interesting and fun. Fair grader. Very hands on class, he wants you to direct what he teaches. He is not a teacher who reads off a power point the whole class, instead he wants the students to talk and debate. Easy A if you just do the work

ENG161 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I love love loved this class and professor. He made everything interesting and FUN. Tell a good joke at the end of a quiz and get extra points if you make him laugh. I would change my major if I was guarenteed he would be my professor each time. ENG161 is not offered anymore, take him for ENG 100, you will not regret it.

Awesome professor. Would not hesitate to take another one of his classes if given the opportunity. He made the class very interesting and fun. Just do the reading and you'll do fine in his class.

Funny, and down to earth guy. He is clear and straightforward, and there are no surprises in his Western Literature class. The class is interested and I would highly recommend this professor.

ENGL210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

What a breath of fresh air this guy is! Not at all boring or mean in anyway. He knows what he's talking about and cares about the material so much, you'll care about it a lot too. Just do the readings, which are always interesting/hilarious, and you'll do fine.

I loved this class and this professor! He was so much fun and picked really great books for Children's Lit. His tests were easy and his lectures were actually really interesting. A very nice guy who is willing to help you and joke around too.

I love him! He is a fantastic teacher. He's funny and loves what he does and teaches the subject beautifully. I never really attended because I read all of the texts outside class and got everything via WebCT but he's a great professor. Take him!

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

I never had him in class and he probably doesn't even know who I am anymore, but I will never forget Joe walking from building to building with me trying to get me registered for classes after a three semester lay-off. I don't think I could have gotten all through that alone (anyone who has tried to go the administrative offices can attest to this).

He's so sweet and down-to-earth. He doesn't try to impress you, but he will. He's also quite concerned with his students' progress, and he'll never make you feel stupid.

Carrol is perhaps the only person in the english department that is not extremely pompous. His class is interesting, and unlike most college courses, you can actually get a lot out of it.
