What is art Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

I was excited for this class, but Schvey left me disappointed. He's interested in what he teaches, but his lectures tend to drag on and are usually boring. I found myself nodding off most classes. No one ever really wanted to participate when he asked question, because no one really cared.

Freshman Semina Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

He's a knowledgable man, but his style of teaching can be incredibly boring. He wanted class participation, but was bad at motivating his students. I left feeling the class was a waste of time. Pretty easy class though, but he's tough on essays.

Henry is an AWESOMe professor. Very helpful, very easy. Many people got away with not reading many of the plays. You get what you put in. He grades essays hard, but your participation and his EASY exams make up for it if you don't do very well. Take this class if you have any interest in theater. Very discussion based but also a fun place to learn!

At first, I thought Dr. Schvey could have given us a little more direction or structure, but in the end I was able to make my own conclusions. Dr. Schvey is great! He is very helpful, compassionate, and knowledgable!

TCS I Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Henry obviously knows his stuff, but is interested in the students discovering things on their own. The class was easy and you can even get by fine without reading all the plays, although I would at least be familiar with them. He cares more about his students than any other professor I've had

It was an okay class. The discussions were not that in depth and very informal however he expected the papers to be very detailed and formal. He was a very hard grader but a nice man.
