He goes out of his way to help students. Very approachable. Very realistic about any advice he gives, about life or homework. If you fail his class I bet you didn't go for help.

Prof. Bower was a real nice guy however, he was very confusing and most of the time I had no clue what he or my other classmates were talking about. The myths were hard to understand and boring. I'm a good student but I would NOT recommend to someone who wants an easy AND fun course. Dreaded going to this class even though I still got an A-

Dr. Bower changed the way I look at literature. He took the Intentional Fallacy right out of me and opened me up to post-modernist criticism. His teaching style is very group oriented and he asks insightful questions that can lead to long silences. You'll get used to it. Great man. Great professor.

I've taken Professor Bower for at least two classes now and I love the man lol He is probably one of the best professors I've met and I am an English major so I've met quite a few in my years. I would definitely recommend him to anyone... except ignorant people. They ruin the class completely.

I really enjoyed his class. It was the first writing course i had ever taken and he ventured into the world of video games! It was a lot of fun and he supported my writing through the entire class. He's an amazing prof :)

I took Film & Lit with Bower. It was the easiest class I have ever taken. Maybe I am just a great writer but for the most part I think that there were ALOT of things we talked about in depth that really brought about a new side of thinking for me. I liked the class. And I got an A.

I took ENG w/ Prof. Bower my second semester at CCC. I enjoyed the class a lot. Sure there was a lot of work, but isn't that part of going to college? Yes, sometimes he was difficult to understand, but he was always willing to help any student outside of class. Most of the time, if you work hard, you will earn an A.

a little hard to understand in terms of the vocabulary he uses (kind of thinks in his own little world)...but beside that, he is EXTREMELY helpful to you and goes the extra mile to make sure you know what you are doing. good guy.
