Cart Tech. Map Making. This class involves a lab and a lecture/test taking side. The Labs are enjoyable, you will learn a lot, and the T.A will be helpful. Learn all Adobe programs and some GIS. Be prepared to spend 10-20 hours on some maps, however. Tests are all short answer and can be difficult but if you study key terms you will be fine.

Dr. Mitchell was awesome! He is so smart and gives really good examples. Be prepared to take good notes and pay attention in class! The exams are not difficult if you know the info on the study guide and have attened lectures. Text book was not used much. I would really recomend him to anyone!

Extremely intelligent & Extremely passionate about geography. He literally gets so excited and giddy about teaching it he giggles numerous times throughout the class with no apparent reason. He is very nice & helpful though. NOT a 100 level type class though-he CRAMS beyond too much info into your head.

Very knowledgeable and approachable. Take good notes! That means you need to write things down without him telling you to. ;)

He's very knowledgable, but has a hard time teaching his knowledge. He often goes off on tangents which are pointless. There are numerous items on the study guide that aren't covered in class and aren't found in the textbook either. I would highly recommend not taking a class with him if you are in the 100 level.

He has a bad attitude in general and is not all that helpful as an advisor.

i really like prof. mitchell. i took a super-intense 2-week summer intro class (5 hours, 5 days a week). i thought it would be a drone, but i actually learned a lot. really funny guy,REALLY smart. lectures can be long, but take good notes and you'll be fine.

class is somewhat boring, his tests are almost completely from notes or lecture, rarely use the book. tests aren't too bad but you get a lot of questions to answer and not enough time.

This class was way too difficult for an intro class and a gen ed class. The tests were extremely difficult. Funny guy, he really got into his geography, but way too specific! I used the study guide with my notes and books and still had blank questions and still had no idea what the answers were on the tests. DIFFICULT!! Do not take unless u must

At first look I would say he looks more like a kindergarden crossing guard rather than a college professor. Lectures are quite boring but if you somehow decifer his crazy examples and realize he's a bit different you can get a decent grade in the class. Not the most interesting class in the world but then again it is geography!

Very smart prof. He knows his stuff, and you will know it too by the end of class. Zany sense of humor keeps your focus on subject matter. Cool guy. You will never make a map without thinking of his guidelines-- and this is a very good thing! He will become the 'mapper' voice in your head. This is a required course,cart, but it's fun too.

He was ok, some things he taught were WAY different from what we learned in weather. Overall not too bad a professor. I will admit that he knows a lot and isn't cocky about the knowledge he obtains.
