ENGL206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He can either be a nice old man, or a grumpy old man. It just so happens that he knew people with my last name and he immediately liked me. Besides that he's a decent teacher. Kind of hard to understand what he wants from the assignments sometimes, but he's not a terribly hard grader.

ENGL320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Brilliant man, awful professor. He does not explain material clearly and often goes off onto other topics, leaving the class in the dark. His quizzes are ridiculous and unclear. He was extremely rude to everyone in the class. Though he is obviously an intelligent and insightful professor, I would never schedule another class with him.

ENGL333 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Maurice, Maurice, where do I start? Very intelligent, Loves the information he teaches. Bad side, he hates college students, people that leave his class to go to the bathroom(God forbid), and people that don't staple their papers. He needs to retire and go back to New Orleans, bless his mean old heart.

ENGL333 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very intelligent man. Stay on good side by participating in class discussions and reading the novels. This was a Louisiana literature class. Quizzes we're based on minute details so be sure to read. In depth discussions on religion, anarchy, hierarchy, and nature will help you on the mid term and the final.

ENGL320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Brilliant professor; instruction in the old but proper style of true discourse. Vital that the student participate in the discussion and grasp the finer points being put forth. The grades are the result of a higher level of understanding.

ENGL204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I respect him as a Proffessor but there is just something about him thats unlikable. He lectures on subjects that we have already gone over, has his own gradding scale. Reading material he assigns is partially interesting, most of the material is centered around New Orleans. Just have a lot a patenice when entering his class

ENGL205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is very old fashioned, takes attendance every class. You have to do the reading. Quizzes are on details from the reading. Tests on themes. If you show him that you know the text, he will respect you. He is very intelligent and knows what he is talking about. You have to try in this class.

ENGL205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I was on his good side, thank God, but if I wasn't I am not sure I would have passed this class. He is a tyrant and is very intimidating. He uses archaic language so he is very hard to follow and he does not make it easy to ask questions. He will talk down to you if you question him. If you take this class I suggest getting on his good side.

Unorganized and often belligerent. Spent much of semester discussing irrelevant information (such as his fondness for dogs and Sigmund Freud.)
