HIST 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

She's seriously a really good teacher and I would recommend her for anyone who's not a huge fan of History, she'll make you like it. Makes her lectures into stories and really knows how to keep your attention. If you go to class and pay attentiontake notes, you will pass. A+

history Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A
"Tough Grader" "Participation matters" "Get ready to read"

Just attend class and take notes you'll do fine. I never read the assigned readings and still did well. She gives a study guide but her tests require a lot of writing. A lot of people think her class is hard, just depends on how much effort you put into it.

Hist 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Her class is tough because there's a lot of material to read, but this also helps because it's an effective way to get you on your toes. I never liked any history classes until I took hers. She doesn't care too much about attendance. Avoid skipping classes with her, read a lot and you'll be fine. She's hot, that will make you want to come to class.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

i absolutely loved her class! It was very interesting and she gives a study guide a week before the test practically giving you all the questions that will be asked. Not an easy A but if you do the study guides you will excel in this class without a doubt. She is amazing!

HIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Coming from someone who dislikes history, I loved her. If you want to learn and DO WORK(as a college student should), than you'll be fine. Take notes, highlight, read, make flashcards, print multiple maps, pre-write essay questions. SHE GIVES YOU A STUDY GUIDE that has everything on the the test. She's only hard if you refuse to try and are lazy.

HIST 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a good professor when it comes to the lectures, its the test that suck. It's all fill in the blank, essay questions, and nonsense. If you even slightly give her what she wants for an answer its never right. You have to be extremely specific when it comes to answers. Don't take her unless you're desperate like I was for another clas

Hist101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Ritchey is really great! So helpful and interesting. Her class is crazy hard for a 101 class and there are a ton of readings. But if you're interested in history and don't mind studying a little, I'd definitely recommend her. Map, readings, and essays on every test but theres always a study guide. She made me decide to minor in history!

Sara Ritchey is genius. This class is a challenge, but that is what college is all about, bettering yourself through hard work. Dr. Ritchey really makes you re-think everything. The class is super open and your opinion about religion is never shot down. I recommend her to anyone who is not afraid of a challenge. Also I think she is a timelord.

She makes the class harder than needed to be. People like me that just need 1 history to get it out of the way she makes it like we are trying to major in history. She made us do more work than any other class i had. I would suggest not to take her!!!

A very difficult course. Her lectures are boring but I managed to stay focused and studied my butt off and still barley passed. Her assistant grades the tests and obviously grades really hard because barley anyone had higher than a C in my class. GOOD LUCK! Is all I have to say!

She is an amazing professor. I enjoyed her lectures. She did cover plenty of material and the tests were detailed, but if you took good notes and studied, it was possible to make an A. She was also very helpful if students had questions.

If you can find a better teacher to take this class, do SO. If your an upperclassmen and just taking this class and really dont need it, NOT TAKE HER! She does the most and want you to read so much. She kind of assign readings as if she knows her class is the only one you're taking. Her test are long, you have to memorize a map on each test.

She really is an amazing teacher. Bring a laptop and type everything she says. She is very easy going and knows what she is talking about. The best professor I have ever had. I typed my notes, printed them out before tests, and highlighted what is on the study guide and got As on every test. Take her. You won't regret it.
