Chris is a terrible teacher, even when he comes to class. The subs we had that replaced him were way better than he was. Don't buy the book, we didn't even open it.

I took two of his classes and both times he dissapeared for a long time. Frustrating when you actually like this subject. In this class you have 5 speeches total, a midterm and a final. Text is helpful, since he's hardly there to help you. He's full of empty promises, but when he is there it's GREAT! Love the class, just not the prof!

Great guy, has some major issues. Chris has been battling with depression for some time, which means he rarely shows up for class. When he is there the class is fun, but most of the time he is not there. I hope the poor guy gets some help.

He is a really cool guy but as a professor, he wasn't very good. He grades hard on speeches. You gives tests when he doesn't even teach anything. Not to mention he puts random questions he never mentions. Don't buy book, waste of money. LOTS of subs come in for him. He's a funny guy but not my idea of a "good" professor.

Chris is a overall good person. He does disappear sometimes but he does let you know why, he has depression. He talks about random stuff a lot but hey you don't need to take notes, DON'T BUY THE BOOK, give a few speeches and that's all. Also he is a funny guy, not cocky. If he misses a lot he will not give you a final.

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS! He come to class and rants about his home life, makes fun of student(he's very cocky) and then will dissapears after 3 classes for the entire semester. You get a sub for the time being then he'll come back and wont show up after he comes back. Then you recieve an unfair grade. Oh he also has a strict attendance policy..smh

Comm 5(Argumentation)Beforwarned, he will disapear on you for a while and you will have a sub. When he is there however, it is AMAZING. )He hardly uses the textbook. You don't read it, it is just a reference. I had a great time debating and learned a lot...WHEN HE WAS THERE!

warning: DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. i felt that i was being robbed of my education and money. we did not even use the textbook. he disappears with no explanation even after he suddenly returns. he could be a serial killer running from the feds. who knows. just don't take this class, it won't benefit you. look for another professor, seriously!

Ridiculous. He wasted my time and my money. My class had a substituted teacher for a little while and she was awesome then he came back, and the whole class was lost and confused.

Horrible teacher. I don't understand why CSU Fresno won't get rid of this guy; he does not care about his job or his students. He'll disappear and then return to tell you that you will earn no credit for work you did while he was gone. That class (Comm 5) was so lame even Chris Andrade couldn't stick with it for the entire semester!

Avoid this teacher! You will learn more about his personal life than the actual subject that he is being paid to teach. Also, this teacher has the habit of disappearing. 'Unclear about assignments and too hard when grading; he just wants the thrill of watching students argue even though he can't prepare us for the debates!

Class was interesting until he completely bailed halfway through the semester?only to find out he's done this 4 or 5 semesters in a row. I recommend the class but do NOT take him as a teacher.

He is VERY flaky not showing up for class for no reason. they when he came he said that the previous work with sub didnt count. His lectures are all over the place and don't make sense. If you are a second late for class he counts you absent. He is really cool to talk to but not a good teacher. but a really great guy.

Seemed like a pretty good teacher in the beginning although he did not use the textbook, and was often very confusing in his lectures. It was often unclear what he wanted from the assignments and graded harshly. Then about 5 weeks in he stopped showing up and we had a sub for the rest of the semester. He had done this the previous semester as well.

Chris Andrade totally disappeared after about 2 weeks of class. For over a week after his being gone, we'd simply come to class and wait to see if he'd show. Finally we got a new professor- Nicolas Barrett I suggest taking his class instead. He actually shows up to class and is a great professor. Don't risk it with Andrade.

This guy seemed fine until he totally disappeared! And then we had another professor who had to work hard to catch us up the whole semester. It ended up being all right, but I later learned this person disappears from classes all the time. Take him if you really want someone else.

Great Teacher, you listen to classic rock blasting as he gets ready to teach, amazing guy actually cares and you learn a lot from his information and style of teaching. Laid back but fair, 3 outlines and debates (they are fun) you pick your own topic and its a lot of fun.

Had Chris last semester. It was my first semester of college. Great guy to have as an incoming freshmen. Would totally take him again. Anyway, I actually enjoyed his class. It was basically just do your speech, then sit back for about 3 weeks and watch everyone else speak. Show up to class and do your work. Cool guy. Keeps it real.

I took him back in fall 08 when he missed like the whole semester for some reason, but while we had him in class he was really helpful, loves what he does, and keeps class with interest. I'll never forget this class it inspired me a lot listening to others speeches. Great professor
