Dr. Wheeler's class is not at all easy, but he is extremely knowledgeable and, despite what I have read from others on here, very fair from what I have seen. He will gladly clarify anything that you miss in class and is very helpful in office hours. If you are planning on going further with latin, I would absolutely recommend.

Dogmatic, unyielding, unfriendly, unhelpful, uninterested, and sometimes just plain wrong!!

This class is "killer". He shot someone last night, literally. He's a BAMF. Don't be late, or else. Go to every class and you'll "survive". Set your sights high, cause he does too. The textbook is thick enough to stop bullets. DON'T ARGUE!!!

Favorite teacher here. You do actually have to do work in his class though. Plus side- you will know Latin almost as well as English. He will do absolutely anything to help you out in anything, Latin or not. Also has crawfish boils :). Grades fairly and often gives bonus opportunities on every quiz. If you cant understand him, ask him to repeat.

An amazing man! Though his Latin class may be the hardest at LSU, you will learn your stuff and enjoy it. He's really passionate about Latin and makes it interesting for his students.

He is hands down my favorite professor! He will do anything to help you, if he sees that you are putting forth some effort. His emails are very entertaining, as is his class. It is hard, but he makes sure his students are well prepared. You can tell he loves teaching, and honestly wants his class to learn. I'd recommend him to anyone.

The guy constantly emails you with things from an extremist political website obviously trying to push his own wacko views on you. This is a LATIN class, not a POLI SCI class! (I'm actually a poli minor.) Constantly mumbles and you cant' understand him and isn't very clear with his standards. I'm a A Latin student by the way. He's quite a moron.

Mr. W. is the Devil, not the Latin Beast. I was one of his best students in Latin I and II, but he thought I was a "gunner" and gave me a really high "B" in Latin II. Despite being a close friend and mentoree, he graded unfairly (I was the only one in the class walking into finals with an A). He grades fishy. Don't take him if you want fairness!!!!

Latin is not easy to begin with, and Wheeler's class is not an easy A. However, you will know what you are doing by the end of the class. He is VERY helpful, wants you to do well, and he is the only professor I have ever known that gives you his HOME phone number In case you have any questions.

Wheeler is really hard. I got an A in both of the previous latin courses but only could pull a C in this course! The way he grades a test is what will kill you. He takes off for every little detail...he is all about grammar. He isn't all bad though. He is very happy to help if you go to his office hours. You will KNOW latin by the end of class!!!
