Rob truly cares about teaching. He gave a large amount of homework, but it was all relevant to tests/quizzes. He answered quickly to emails and cares about his students!

Online. Lots of reading & work. Had to think/work hard but I'm not a science person. Clear expectations; no wasting time figuring out what to do. Do ALL the extra credit. It's time-consuming but not hard. You'll be glad for the extra points! Helpful, pleasant interactions with Rob Viens. Well-organized materials. Got an A. Interesting online labs.

This was a pretty cool class. However, there is A TON OF WORK because it was a 6 credit online course. This course was one of the most rewarding courses I've ever taken. Hard work pays off in this class. Plus, you'll learn a bunch of really cool stuff! If you like science and working hard, you'll love this class!

Mr. Viens is an excellent instructor and made this my best online class experience so far at BC. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on the labs and be sure to do the reading as there are weekly quizzes. I highly recommend this class if you need a lab science.

I also think Prof V. is "straight up G." I took geol:intro to natural hazards & disasters. I was sort of worried in the beginning that it would be too hard, but i ended up learning SO MUCH and found that i was liking it. He is laid back,smart,funny and accomidating.I even found my self googling things about it on my own time.

I took this class online. He has a lot of labs. At least one due a week. Lots of researching and analysis of actual rocks given in a kit. He's very helpful and gives comments back on each lab. As long as you follow instructions and give enough time for eahc lab and paper, you should be okay.

This guy is a straight up G. He is the true definition of an educator. You go on cool field trips, exams are easy but worth studying for. He will answer any question you ask him and he walks around during the labs just to make sure everyone understands the material. Plus, its a class for non-majors. What could be better?!!!

Rob is great! If you need a lab science, this is a good alternative to your typical Chemistry or Biology lab science. It's very hands on. I was thinking it would be relating to global warming, etc., but it's mostly learning about water quality, soils, etc. The only slight downside is the Greenhouse Experiment. It gets overwhelming towards the end.

I found this class to be hard. But, it is just the material. Rob is a cool guy, and grades fairly, and friends with his students. Take any one of his classes.

Best Prof I've ever had and a great class. Come to class, do the labs, participate and you're at the top of the class. He makes the topic interesting and fun. But watch out for the tests...you'd better know your stuff.

Rob is a great teacher. I really enjoyed this class, along with the students. The other students were great, which made for an even better class. He is very informative, provides great examples. I would recommend this class for anyone who needs a science class.

Very good class where you can learn a lot about your surroundings. Show up, suit up, and ask questions and you will achieve the grade you deserve

I think that he might be a great teacher in class... But do not ever ever take his online class. I got an A in his class.... but had to do 30-40 hours of homework for his class alone this quarter. If you love stress, never seeing your friends and family and not sleeping and if you aren't taking any other classes.. he's your man. I now HATE geol.

Rob Viens is probably in the top three best professors I've had at BCC. His lectures are very comprehensible for any type of student. His notes are made readily available online, and the assignments aren't terribly taxing, though they do help the learning process. Also, the class discussions can get rather heated so bring an open mind.

Took the summer class, with field trips: AWESOME. Best teacher I've had here, would love to take another. He's always there to answer any questions so ask, and ask lots (so everyone learns!) Lots of reading but skimming is ok to get jist of it. TAKE THUROUGH NOTES! You'll need them for tests. Have fun I hope you can take any of his classes!

I took this class online and it was a lot of work but the labs and other work Rob assigned made the class much more interesting. He was very helpful and always responded quickly when I had any questions. The tests were kind of hard so be sure to fully understand the concepts that are in the chapter. I recommend reading each chapter more than once.
