Sean is awesome! It can be hard not to fall asleep in the planetarium, but Sean is funny and class is easy. Highly recommend.

Attendance required, but no one go to the class. 3 quizzes, online homework, presentation, and final exam. Take him.

ASTR121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He knows nobody cares about this class, so he makes it blatantly clear he doesn't either. The only time you'll ever see a full class is on the first day and on quiz days. Class is actually harder than it seems.

Oh scully! he is quite the character. He's absolutely hillarious and if your looking for an easy class you could take this one. It's not that hard. the labs are very simple just follow the directions and if you ask for help he will help. I cant say i left the class knowing much about anything i had learned but i can say he's really not that bad

GSCI104 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Scully is AWESOME. Exploring the Night Sky is the EASIEST class I have taken since elementary school. He is co-teaching it with William Alexander (another easy prof). They practically give you the answers for labs. 2 classes so far were only 25 minutes. Only 1 day a week. No book, no tests. Doesn't get much better

PHYS140L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Pretty cool guy... very sarcastic, so don't take it personal when he makes some smartass comment! Never really sure where you stand in terms of your grade... but lab is easy. Never have any assignments due other than 1 big lab and meaningless quizzes once a week.

He's not very comfortable around his students. If you manage to get on his good side he's decent, but god help you otherwise. He does tend to have only one way of explaining things. If you didn't get it the first time don't bother asking again. He'll just repeat the last slide of his powerpont show..

Wow, I definitely find this guy to be one of the least helpful professors. I had questions and he answered them the same exact way that he said it the first time (the way which I didn't understand in the first place!!) I've been told to be sarcastic with him to get on his good side, and yeah, it works, but if you take it too far he'll ****.

he just plain has no idea what he's doing. Its hard to take a lab class when you're afraid the lab instructor is going to blow up the equipment on you.
