ENG-155-01 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read" "Papers? More like novels"

Reading assignments nearly every day. Puts pre-class Blackboard quizzes up a few hours before class. Which is difficult considering I commute, am a part time worker, and have a class before that class. Don't expect her to respond to 34 of your emails. Expects students to make deadlines but won't keep hers, once got a paper back 3 weeks or so late.

She is an awsome teacher! The papers aren't too bad, there were many easy ways to get extra credit. None-the-less, be prepared to participate in class and read! If you're not a talker like me, try to say something at least and she'll like, end up talking for you haha!

World Classics: Worst teacher ever for this subject. She was never available and showed blatant favoritism. I participated heavily in class. Turned in my paper one day late no excuse points 15 points off. Another student turns hers in 3 days late no excuse 5 points off. Take this class with someone else. Seriously, save your GPA...

It is the most work I have ever done in a class. She is nice and loves what she does but assigns a lot of work. It is possible to complete all of it if you have a lot of free time but it will really bombard you.

ENG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hardest class ever for an intro level class. She was flat out rude to anyone who didn't think exact way she did. She doesn't believe in A's you are lucky to get a low B in the class.

Loved her class she is really helpful and she does assign a lot of work but if you ask for her help before you hand in the work she will practically write it for you. Just participate and go to office hours.

She's definitely tough. One of the toughest professors I've ever had. However, if you manage to make your way through the loads of work, study, and commitment you need, you actually learn something and value her teachings. She's a great teacher who uses unorthodox methods.

Research and Writing....The comment below mine is correct. The thing is, she is a nice lady if you are on her good side but the class is just wayyyyyyy too much work. Ive taken AP and honors classes, even college classes in high school and this tops it off as the absolute most work ive ever done. It was only an intro basic level class!!!!!

I loved her! i took her for cw1 and cw2. She's really helpful if you ask questions.She will basically redo your paper for you, if you get her help. She's super interested in feminism and world issues. But it makes the class very interesting. The more you participate the more she loves you. only complaint is she gives you a lot of busy work.

One of my favorite professors EVER! Seriously her class is interesting and I looked forward to attending. She did everything she could to help me out this term and was very nice. My only complaint is that the papers take a while to get back but other than that honestly take her best class ever!

Best professor I have ever had! There is a lot of work in the class but if you do the readings and pay attention in class you will be fine. By far the best class I have taken in college! She changed my perspective on literature. She is also very nice, willing to help with anything, and very understanding.

She did assign a lot of work, but there she provided ample amount of time to get it done. If there is an issue with a lot of crammed work, then she will extend the due date. I did the required paper the night before and still got an A.

Dr. Sullivan is a great teacher. She gives a ton on homework, but she will extend time for the essays whenever needed. She is more than willing to work with you if you are having a hard time. She loves her job and is truly passionate about writing. Gives great feedback on essays and the final is a zine; it's super easy and actually pretty fun.

Probably one of the nicest teachers I've had. She is always willing to help you or give you ideas for you papers. Always understands if your overloaded and need more time to do a paper. Would recommend everyone take her for College Writing I and II.

Marnie is a nice person, but her class sucks. She assigns way too much work and the readings in the text book are a waste of time. However, they would be useful for the essays and other homework it is just not possible to read them along with the other 385793486 she assigns. I used my book once... and still got a decent grade.

Definitely knows her subject very well. Does a very good job of letting you know what you have to do to succeed in her class. It's no cakewalk, but you will learn a lot if you attend class, do the assignments and complete the reading. She plays "devil's advocate" to prompt class discussions. Friendly approachable. I'm going to take her again.
