Best class I've taken at UofM. He's funny, engaging, and clearly loves what he does. You can get by without doing all of the readings so long as you take good notes, but the readings from the book he wrote are short and interesting. Study the night before the exam and you can get an A.

Lopez is awesome! He is so knowledgeable about Buddhism but is very humble at the same. He always talks about his experiences with the Dalai Lama--it's crazy. I highly recommend any class with him. It's not too hard a class but you have to do the reading.

Your grades largely depend on your GSI (essay grades). Midterm and final are easy if you read the texts. His sweaters are sexy as ****.

This class is amazing! Lopez is the best professor I've had. His lectures are interesting and engaging, and the course is focused on learning, not testing. Overall it is fairly easy if you attend lectures and read, but you learn so, so much. Due to the course content and Lopez's teaching style, this course is one that will change your life! Take it

Lopez is great! One of the clearest, most interesting, most entertaining professors I've ever had. Very personable, too. Renowned scholar (check out his books!), but still down-to-earth and dedicated to teaching. Highly recommended! (Do the readings he assigns, too--they're fascinating.)

Go to lecture. You can show up late if you want- spends the first half hour or so on esoteric questions- but go.

If you get the chance to take a class with him, do it. He has the best stories and it's a pretty easy A (even though you learn A LOT).

Amazing class! About learning, not testing. Very cool guy. I have heard mixed reviews on intro to buddhism, but I definitely recommend the seminar.
