Hall is very helpful and understanding that most 103 students have never taken a philosophy course. You write 4 papers, each one worth more points than the one before. Professor Smeltzer is a nice guy and pretty funny in class. I recommend him.

Short lecture at the beginning of class then lots of small group work, analyzing an article and applying an ethical system from the readings. Weekly short paper on different philosophies, then a long paper at the end of the semester on your personal ethical philosophy. It was a structured class but interesting if you like ethics.

Wow. I love this guy. He is so knowledgeable and can really teach. He's also pretty funny, which is a bonus. If you can take him, you really should.

Professor Smeltzer and this philosophy and literature class is amazing and leaves a lasting impression. He sets you up for success and is extremely helpful. This class requires hard work and attendance, but it is very enjoyable and class time flies by! I would definitely recommend this course with this professor.

A rare professor who is actually interested in the thoughts and experiences of his students. Do the readings and the class in a breeze.

Great class. I had him for philosophy and lit in fall semester 2012. Attendance is mandatory for participation points, and you should probably take the class with friends if you can, as he splits the class into groups. Only two papers and two exams the entire semester. Kind of a hard grader, but really helpful.

He is a really good teacher. The only problem is that the readings are really hard. On the other hand, if you actually go to class he clearly explains everything and that saves your grade. He only has 4 papers and 2 tests. He tells you exactly what he wants on the papers and if you completely follow his guidelines you will get a good grade on it.

pretty hard class for business ethics. Kind of has an ego going.
