My class with Todd was one of the best ones I have taken at FSU. He is hilarious as a teacher, and a good guy. Always presents information in a way that is helpful and relevant, and his tests are very straightforward. I can't wait for next semester!

4 semesters in a row with Dr. Backes has been the best experience of my life. He is the best professor that Fredonia has ever had. He is extremely helpful and cares that you know the material and do well in the class. He is down to earth and very understanding. Highly recommended.

Very nice guy overall. He is very into cycling so if you bring that up I'm sure he'll like you even more. Hard material for physiology but he puts everything in simplest terms. Great Professor I recommend him. Very leniant on tests and tries to help you out.

BIOL110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

First off DON'T buy the book. I ended up buying it online and at the end of the semester it still had the mailing paper inside it. I don't get biology at all, and he actually made this class so interesting to learn about. You aren't required to go to class, but you should just for the stories. The final exam isn't that hard either as long as yo

Hes great. he makes class interesting. Its not a hands on class so if you are having problems you have to ask. He gave a couple easy assignments like a summary of what we ate in a week. Its simple.He told us the first day of class to return the 85 dollar book and save our money because we wouldnt need it. that was cool of him.

Todd was amazing. I was completely trashed for a test one time, and he noticed and said that I could look at it and study and come back at another time to take it. There wasn't any homework, and what there was we usually had like two weeks to do it. Great guy, better teacher
