ENG 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class was not easy, but I enjoyed every secind of it. He is someone who is so passionate about English. His love for literature makes the class so much more interesting. Take the course, you will have to read about 8 novels, but its not that bad if you sparknote them. You just have to answer the questions as he would on a test. 3 test ONLY

ENG1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This guy's great. Basically, he's funny, old, and loves books. There's no reason anyone should get below an A in his class, even if you're not a big reader. Skim the books, read sparknotes the night before the test, and you'll get at least a B. Only tests, no hw or papers. Honestly, there is nothing better than an english class without papers.

He is the cutest professor I have had. He gets lost in his stories, and shares them with the class, while giggling at his own jokes. Very fair grader, and his tests are easy. Class can get a bit boring, but hey, which class doesn't.

Took Dr. Franzetti over the summer for business writing. If you go to class and do your work you should get a good grade. He has a lot of experience and tells a lot of stories. As a senior I have encountered many professors and he definitely is one of the best I have had.

You won't find a better ENG professor than Dr. Franzetti. He is a great professor. He gives homework every other class and gives you a week to do them. He always has a story for the class and he is fairly easy. He jokes around in class and there isnt 1 bad thing i can say about him. You'll learn a lot from him.

this guy is the man and one of my favorite professors that i have had. there is 1-2 papers a week, but they are all only 1 page. he is helpful, understanding, and keeps the class interesting. he loves vocabulary and he cares about his students. if you do all the work (which is easy), it should be an easy A

ENG1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Frazetti is my ultimate FAVORITE professor at STJ! He not only understands the lateness for the papers but he even understands for anything when you talk to him. He is so nice you just have to give him a respect and pay attention in the class. He could be boring but the discussions in the classes are always interesting. He grades the pape

franzetti is the best prof at SJU!! He's extremely witty, makes the greatest subversive comments, has awesome taste in readings (and knows it), is down to earth, smart, competent, wise, fair, and kind. He demands precision and is the first prof who's really helped me with my writing. He's a very lenient grader IF you remotely deserve the A you want

Dr. Franzetti is an incredible man. He is passionate about teaching. He cares deeply about his students and will try to help you as much as possible. He is a tough grader but that makes the learning experience more valuable.Attend class its mandatory. You will learn plenty in his class. He does give out assignments every week but its very doable.

He is an extremely competent professor whose choice of works is excellent. He leads great class discussions too, but demands about an average of about a 1-2 page paper a week. He grades fairly, if a bit on the hard side.

ENG1011 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Western Lit: great class. He breezes through the books pretty quickly so it's hard to keep up. I mostly did cliffs notes along with browsing through the readings and did pretty well. you can't get by on just cliffs notes though. passionate man. attendance is mandatory cuz he knows who's in class and who isn't even without writing it down.

One of the most inspiring people I have met. Cares DEEPLY about his students and teaches with enthusiasm. He has been teaching over 60 years...amazing. Best prof I had at st johns. His class is neither easy nor hard--u want the A, sweat a little. A few tests, a little bit fast paced reading but not too bad, no other major assignments otherwise.

Dr. Franzetti is a wonderful professor. He truly cares about his students and wants them to do well. No tests, only papers - one a week. He is full of knowledge about books, and loves to teach you uncommon words. You will work hard for your grade. Great professor; highly recommended

The man is wonderful. You can tell he is genuinely passionate about what he teaches. The man is funny and adorable considering his age. I would recommend him to anyone that can potentially take him. :)
