CHM115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: F

Hawrelak goes SUPER fast and the only way to fully understand is to go to his office hours. I def. recommend taking a intro to chem course if you didnt have chem within the last year or so! He gives daily quizes which help to refresh the prior lesson but just become annoying.

Chem115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hawrelak is absolutely brilliant! He is extremely helpful in office hours and he does not stop until a student understands something. You have to approach him if you don't understand something. CHEM IS HARD but Hawrelak is funny, cool, extremely helpful, and great to have in class!

CHEM115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is by far the best teacher I have ever had in my years of being in school. I had him for 115 lab and struggled. I went to him for help almost everyday for lecture and lab and never failed to make things clear. If it wasnt for him I would never had passed chem. He is every easy going in lab and quiet funny too. He made chem kind of enjoyable! :)

CHEM115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I was terrified before entering this class, but after getting there wasnt so bad. If you go ask for help and have questions he will help you answer them. Chem classes arent easy and you have to try. Grades can be shifted if you show him you tried to improve.

CHEM2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is the second worse teacher for chemistry (Wilcox being the worse). Avoid him. He seems nice at first but he heavily favors chem majors and that hurts all the other majors (bio).

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

I hated chemistry in HS, and I withdrew from my first chem class my freshman year. This guy actually made chem somewhat interesting to me. I started off awesome in the class with great grades, but after skippin classes my grade dropped a little...yet wasn't awful. He has a sense of humor and helps w/ problems. I recommend him. ..

Chem 116 Lab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

I wish he taught 116 lecture. He helped me after lab time to understand the lecture. Always willing to help out and checks his email and responds very quickly. It's about time we get a young, approachable chem professor. Any negative comments on here are from people who don't want to get help. Chem is hard but Dr H makes it work!

He rocks. Helpful. Personable. Fair. Messes up once in awhile, but who doesn't? If stupid people stopped taking chem, his rating on here would skyrocket. Yeah, I said it.

Chem 116 Lab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Definitely by far THE BEST prof I've ever had in any chem class. Hes the 5th chem prof I've had and he is the ONLY one that was any good. He is EXTREMELY helpful and very willing to go over things with you until you understand them. Ask him questions and he'll sit and explain them thoroughly for you. If you need a chem class, take him if possible
