"Amazing lectures" "Respected by students" "Hilarious"

Ginna is hilarious and really inspired me to pursue advertising as a career. She has incredible work experience in the field and makes the 3 hour lecture once a week one I would hate to miss. She's not a very hard grader but does give good feedback on all your work.

Professor Hall is funny, engaging and just so excited about communications. The assignments are very industry relevant so it doesn't feel like a text book class at all. She gives a coffee break in 6-9 and makes you feel like she didn't waste any time. Organized and well planned class.

This lady is fantastic. She makes a 6-9pm class as enjoyable as it can be. When you have to take CM331, DO IT WITH HER!! Assignments are clear and as long as your thorough, you'll get an A. Attendance isn't mandatory but since it's once a week it's hard to miss. Assignments every other week, not long.

Professor Hall is the best woman alive! She is so funny and intelligent. She's always approachable and helpful. Take CM 331 with Hall if you can because it will change your experience in COM. She is not an easy grader but if you know how to write well, which any COM student should, you will get a good grade.

I was not looking forward to taking this class at all, but Prof. Hall actually made it fun, even at 9 a.m on a Friday. She is hilarious, and so sweet. She is a fair grader, and you can tell this thoroughly examines your work because she provides helpful and insightful feedback. Probably, the best professor I have had in COM.

Professor Hall is possibly my favorite professor at BU. She is adorable and always in a good mood; you could tell she loves what she does. Its a long class but it goes by very fast since she gives group activities and short projects. I learned so much about such a wide range of things- from print advertising to internet newsletters!

She was an amazing professor, assignments were weekly but interesting. It's really great if you're going for PR, since all of the assignments are PR based. She's a pretty hard grader, but it is worth it, the class was one of the best I've taken in COM!

I personally thought the grading was difficult because I am an average writer. However, I would strongly recommend taking this class with her! She is enthusiastic, funny, and really cares for her student. Her husband is John so don't get confused between them ( :

Best class ever! The assignments were fun and very useful. Expect to have fun in class. She makes the class gear toward pr and advertising majors unlike some other profs. Im gonna miss this class when it's over. Take this class with her! And don't forget your smiles.

Take this class with Hall. She is enthusiastic and bubbly and makes the three hours fly by. She lets you know exactly what she expects on assignments and is helpful if you contact her with questions. One of the best profs I've had in the mass comm classes.

she's very nice, and fun in class. she teaches many critical skills. the criteria might not always be clear, but it definitely makes it worth asking her questions in and out of class. she's not necessarily easy, but the overall experience was certainly rewarding.

She's hilarious, even at 9am in the morning on Fridays. She made class enjoyable and is very fair. She has a very systematic way of grading and she gives you all the readings so you don't have to buy any books.

COM 331 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Mercifully, Hall doesn't make her class a series of useless assignments, but makes them relevant to real-life communications. Beyond that, she gives useful advice and corrections that make each assignment writing-sample worthy. She gives clear, general pointers for each covered type of writing and encourages you to share your best work.
