He does a good job at trying to make freshmen ready for college. A lot of people come in thinking it will be a walk through the park but he doesn't hold your hand. If you do the work and follow the corrections he tells you to do you'll be fine.

Doyne is awesome. It takes a while to get used to him, and he's definitely not for the faint of heart, but I had a teacher exactly like him for 3 years in high school. He's witty and won't hold your hand, he really helps you learn for yourself. He's not there to cheer you on, he's there to teach you.

Doyne is a wonderful teacher. He is hilarious and the discussions the class has are quite interesting. All one has to do is follow directions and listen to the man, and you're in the clear. However, if you can't handle being teased, singled out, and disturbing discussions this class is not for you.

He is a wonderful teacher, and is always there for his students. He is also hilarious, he's not for the faint of heart however.

A great teacher to learn from. Instead of teaching strictly by the book he makes students think for themselves. Lively, energetic, fun.

I know everybody likes him(and he is fun to be around), but as teacher he is not very good. It seemed like everything I turned into him was never good enough for him. Also, he would direct us to examples of how to do things and then we would come to class and he would say that was wrong.

I had 101-103 with Doyne. Very entertaining professor and also very wise. He can be bitter at times, but he is approachable and he cares for his students.

A mastermind at providing individual attention to any student who makes himself or herself available. Refuses to play to the lowest common denominator.

This professor taught me everything I need to know academically. He prepared me for the rest of college, and taught me how to write correctly and well. He is hilarious, old, and crazy. I love it. People are for some reason offended when he pushes his students, even though it is out of care and love. He truly does care for his students.

If you have a backbone and an opinion, Doyne Mraz is an exceptional teacher. He actually makes his students THINK by CHALLENGING them. Boy, what a concept. Not for the faint of heart or mind.

In my opinion he is a genuinely horrible person, and it comes across in everything he does. He does not respect his students at all. Please save yourself the hassle of having to interact with this man at all costs.

Expectations unreasonably high for level of class. Some assignments are extremely vague. Topic of class does not seem to coincide with the work that is done...very confusing. Responds slowly to e-mails. Lacks decorum in the classroom.

Doyne can be brilliant, he can be utterly frustrating. What stands out to me is that he genuinely *cares* about his students (which is saintly of him, considering some of the slack-jawed dolts that come through the Core classes). He truly wants to see every student improve and achieve their potential. But sometimes he's a bit overbearing.

He was the WORST teacher I've ever had in my life. He made fun of half my class and favored one or two students. I had a friend in his other class and he threatened to fail them all if they didn't all take their papers to tutoring and get them fixed. Overall he's just such a jerk! Makes me a little sick to think I might ever have to take a class from him again!
