HUMA 250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

He is a decent professor. I would recommend having an interest in the class before taking it with Dr. Fritzen. He sits at the front of the class and does not move much from there. He is not "thrilling" and gets off subject very often. I almost felt like I did not get my money's worth through him. I would have liked to learn more.

HUMA 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

I had Dr Fritzen for Humanities and Mythology. He is an extremely smart man and sometimes has a hard time understanding that you don't get what he is saying, but he means well. He lectures so TAKE NOTES! It'll be easy. He is very funny, interesting and he cares! Lots of little quizzes and tests. The final is a big deal but is the same material.

HUMA250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took this class Summer2013 and I always highly recommend his class. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The class itself is not easy, you HAVE to study. It is a challenge, as college should be. I learned a lot, he also has great stories. There were only 2 people who got an A in his class. Luckily I was one of them.

Hum-101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I would NEVER ever reccommend him for anything. I took him for Humanities and is the worst teacher I have ever had! I got all A's and B's on quizzes and papers and didnt do so well on the final but still got a low D. Basically your grade is based on the final. The class is so boring and uninteresting. He sits in the front and talks no powerpoint.

FREN 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

While Prof. Fritzen has high expectations of his students and can be hard on them sometimes, I feel that I have learned lot from this course. I feel confident in the new French skills that I have learned and plan to take the second level next semester even though I do not need the course for credit.

HUMA 101-06 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Amazing teacher, cares about his students, keeps the class alive, assigns easy quizs and has a review day the day before, assigns easy papers, and you watch a lot of videos. He also tells a ton of storys that keep the class entertaining.

GERM 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I've had bodo for multiple classes. He's kind and cares about you. However he does not understand where you get confused even a little bit. He has a Ph.D. and he speaks 3 languages fluently. He offers only a few point opportunities so spend 6 plus hours on the exams (seriously). His stories are super interesting to. Very eclectic guy. I recommend!

GERM 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This course is by no means a blow off course. It has a heavy homework load. Be prepared to spend a few hours per class completing it. The tests are take home but google translate boobie-trapped. Attending tutoring is almost a must but if you apply yourself, the course is very rewarding. I would recommend over Spanish. He thrives on your success.

Fre115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had Bodo from French 1-3 as well as Mythology when french 4 was canceled. He expects a lot from students and if you just do the work, you will do well. A lot of the French is busy work, do the first 8 in each section and finish the rest in class because you go over everything. Mythology was straight memorization. Papers never over 2 pages.

HUMA101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He was alright. I had him for humanities and i would not reccoment him for that, though ive heard hes great for everything else. he spent a great deal of time talking about Germany, hes german. he did not discuss art much, and I feel like all i learned was a memorized list of art work and their artists. very nice man though, but a lot of quizzes.
