BIO 1510 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B+

It's high time this woman retired. If she's so fed up with her career, students and life in general, she has no place at WSU. There is no leeway with this bull-headed woman - even when your request is VALID.

BIO 1500 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

An exceptionally RUDE and unwilling to help instructor. The way she speaks to students is deserving of disciplinary action by WSU. Just an unbelievably bad experience with her - AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS.

BIO 1500 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I understand this is a biology class and it is meant to weed out the majority of pre-med students but this class was too challenging. The lab itself is ridiculous the average on the first practical was a 33 out of 93.

BIO1050 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She has been my lab coordinator for BIO 1050, 1500 & 1510 and I went to her office once and emailed her once. That was enough never agin!! She is absolutely rude and sarcastic. I received an A in all three classes and got 100% on my BIO 1500 final practical. Lab was VERY difficult but not impossible. GET TO KNOW YOUR TA!!!! NOT VAN THIEL

Bio1510 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I got an A because I went to lecture and read the lab manual. Quizzes are open note and everything you need to know is in the lab manual so I guess if you read it the day of the quiz you will do poorly. Professor Van Thiel oversees the class but it is the TA that makes or breaks it.

BIO1510 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A very bad professor. Do not take her class unless you want to ruin your Gpa. Her class has a 60% fail rate. Very very difficult because her lab book is impossible to understand
