Brother Venema is extremely knowledgeable about the gospel. He answers questions easily and clearly. If he doesn't know the answer, he will look it up and let you know. He cares about his students. I would definitely take his class again!!!

Brother Venema is an awesome teacher! He is very funny and makes the class fun. His assignments are really easy so it takes some of the pressure off. The final for this class was a binder check.

Greg Venema is the best religion teacher. I enjoyed his class so much, I specifically signed up for his class the following semester. No busy work just for the sake of busy work. You are required to read and come prepared. If you do, you will love the class and do very well. Great class discussion.

The best professor I have ever had. He gets to know you by name and will remember you after the semester. He is friendly and willing to answer questions. He relates the information to real life - it's not just arbitrary information. Honestly, a great and wonderful professor I respect and love.

Brother Venema is a great person and is fun to listen to, but I barely learned anything new in his class about the Book of Mormon. There's a daily journal about the chapters read in the Book of Mormon. If you're looking for an easy class, this is it. If you're looking to deepen your understanding of the Book of Mormon, he's not your guy

Brother Venema is an awesome teacher. He really knows how to connect with students and he makes his lessons meaningful and he does add some humor. It's really funny when he laughs at his own jokes. All you have to do to is go to class everyday, do the readings and online work on I-Learn, and he does have you complete an insight presentation.

He's an easy A. Do some reading, write down some thoughts on i-learn for each class. Do one "insight presentation" - something you liked about a scripture. One page final paper. Super easy but it's a great scriptural discussion each class. 2 thumbs up.

Really down to earth, funny, very personable and loving. I was struggling with a family issue, so I met with him out of class and he helped me a lot. He really cares about his students and radiates the Savior's love! His class is super easy. He does a great job of relating the scriptures to our times and is as Christlike as any teacher on campus.

oh my gosh. he is amazing. so nice and understanding. you definitely want to take from him. love his teaching style. it's super relaxed and its basically a class discussion the whole time. he makes you do one devotional and the rest of your grade is attendance and a reading journal.

I LOVED Bro Venema!!! His class is easy, just a journal entry for each class and 1 presentation for the semester, no tests or final. I've never learned so much from a religion class before. He goes really deep into the scriptures, and I feel the spirit every day, but he also keeps it entertaining and funny. Will definitely take him again!

Bro. Venema is a great teacher. He knows his scriptures and makes class fun. His philosophy on religion classes is that they should be easy, non-intrusive, and teach you a lot about the gospel. He does it very well!

Bro Venema is awesome! I'd be surprised if anyone leaves his class with any grade less than an A. He is a down to earth guy, and he is not overly religious. This is what his class consists of: Answer some application questions for each class from the reading, do one presentation in front of the class, and write a 1 page final paper.
