SurveI Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Gill is the best thing that happened to the art history department since paper. She'll upload the slides on her website if you ask, but do not rely solely on these... take good notes. I only studied the night before everytime, but made A's. She is super smart and you will love her stories. As an added bonus, tons tons tons of extra credit.

ARTH2583 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She can be summed up in one word: VAGUE. You never know what to expect or what to do or what she's looking for, so on projects or papers, just do things how you want to do them and make sure the sound good and arent complete BS.

Fine2503 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had her for fine arts visual...Be prepared to put forth an effort and study. She is prepared to help you but you must be willing to help yourself as well. And if you have an A before the final then she exempts you from it.

Enjoyed her class! She has pictures and all to document her knowledge! Study the slides. Take notes EVERY day and then study those before the test. Got an A in the class. I think she's an excellent teacher and I'd recommend her to anyone. What you get out of it is what you put into it!

art history I Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very knowledgeable professor. She is extremely documented and wants to convey as much information as possible. The student is supposed to have some basic general culture type of knowledge to follow through; if not, the student should read in advance. Dr. Gill is a real asset for ASU.

F. Arts Visual Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice person, bad teacher. Most of your grades on her tests are based on slide identifications (usually 12). The slide identifications will be based on the artist, name of the sculpture, owner (patron), what the sculpture is made out of, what is a characteristic of the sculpture, and the time period of the sculpture. Test also include MC and defs.

She's the coolest person from all of my college years. I'm a senior now and I still remember her from freshman year in her honors FAV.

Fine Arts Visua Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I love her! I like the subject to begin with, but if you study your notes and images for the test and sometimes read the book, she is fine. Very interesting with great stories. For every day you miss class 3 points are deducted from your grade, but she will excuse you if you tell her why you missed.

Arts Visual Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She was an excellent teacher and really had a passion for what she was teaching. Since she has been to the places she talks about in class, she has very interesting stories and pictures which makes it very interesting. Study the pictures and your notes taken in class & you'll do great. She's totally reasonable and awesome! Loved her class!

Survey 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a really fun teacher but it's not the easiest class. She expects you to actually study hard and know your stuff. Listen in class! She tells you everything you need to know.
