Jour 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Easy class. Quizzes are more difficult than the tests. As long as you pay attention and speak up during class you should get an A. There are also extra participation points available that are very easy to earn.

Awesome professor! He has a structured class but is willing to work with you if the need arises. I learned more about campaigns and elections in Prof. Guth's class than I did in my political science class! He knows his subject and engages the class. I would take any class given by him.

Guth is a great teacher and a very nice guy. He has your back 100% and will work with you to make sure you are clear on the material. He wrote the book on public relations, literally, and because of this, he is able to expand thoroughly on the material. I would highly recommend taking a course from him.

Jour676 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Guth is awesome. He knows his stuff and makes sure campaigns doesn't take over his students' lives. He does a really great job of setting reasonable deadlines. The only downfall is that his campaign's client tends to be something to do with history or a chamber of commerce. Overall, Guth is great and I would really reccomend taking him.

Guth is one of the best here at KU! I wish he ran the whole journalism department! There is no better teacher at this university! If you loved Chuck Marsh you will love Guth even more!

JOUR523 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A nice guy for the most part. Bit dry and the class gets painfully boring sometimes. I honestly feel like i haven't learned anything in this class (j523) not sure if that's his fault though.

He is SO boring. I honestly cannot stand this class. His jokes are lame, he is arrogant and completley full of himself. I cannot emphasize enough-take advertising, you wont learn anythingn in this class about PR.

JOUR201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Lots of questions are directly from Power Points on Blackboard. He has lots of guest speakers and encourages class discussions. I got really good grades on all of my assignments and the tests were practically identical to the study guide but I still got a B. WATCH OUT! He assigns arbitrary weekend homework through e-mail. CHECK E-MAIL EVERY WEEKEND

Great class, great guy. Made me actually interested in politics and the campaign system. He showed interesting video clips that made lecture manageable to listen to. His tests are very fair- if you fill out the study guide, it is EXACTLY what will be on a test or final. It's so simple!

JOURN210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Guth puts a lot of work into each lecture, you get out what you put in with him because he works so hard. He does however have too many speakers come in before listening to them first-some of them were a complete waste of time!Some lectures were borning, but the class itself is an oppurtunity that wont come along often.

I agree - if North Carolina Prison System is so great, why are you here? He doesn't know AP style and his presentations and handouts are full of mistakes, and yet he counts off big time on student papers for these same errors. My biggest complaint is that he teaches his campaign's class just like he taught the pr class.

Unless you want to hear about how fabulous his family is and how great his job at North Carolina prison was do not take his class. He is too arrogrant and self-centered.
