Dr. Elrod was definitely one the best teachers at Harding. He was certainly difficult, but you'd learn a great deal and he put much effort into his work. I will sure miss him.

Not helpful. Thought he was above everyone. Only helped students that had his same liberal views. Stay away!

The people on here making comments are ignorant. Elrod is an awesome teacher IF you don't want to be lazy. I was lazy going in and lazy coming out but I learned to respect him, don't sleep, and GO to SI sessions and the class is a breeze. Also do the quizzes on the textbook link online. Tests come straight from questions off of there.

Dr. Elrod is hilarious. He's an excellent teacher and has a great sense of humor. His tests are hard, but the maps really help you make up the grades. Do all of them, and READ THE TEXTBOOK!

Totally bias. A political science professor should at least TRY to be non-bias and teach his class that way but Elrod has always made it crystal clear that Liberals are brilliant and Conservatives are idiots. He also is very bias in the way he allows for discussion and question. He is also very bias in what topics he allows. If GOP bashing, ok.

If you're not a baby and actually READ what you're assigned to read, classes with Elrod are worth the discipline you must put into them. I've learned more in Elrod's class than any other, though with more difficulty than ever. If you want a kicked-back semester don't take him, if you want to challenge yourself, do.

Arrogant, insufferable and full of himself. Class was hard enough without his attitude.

I am a political science major and so have taken Dr. Elrod for many classes. I just couldn't stand to see so many rude comments towards him. THIS IS COLLEGE PEOPLE! It's supposed to be hard, and I feel like Dr. Elrod's classes are among the few that actually prepare me for grad school. He willing to help students, you just have to be willing to ask

If you suck up, he'll like you. Very few questions are from the notes, mostly from the book. Extremely liberal and very sarcastic, dry sense of humor (if you would even call it that). I would suggest going to tutoring or SI.. it helped my grade and understanding tremendously.

He isn't as his rep makes him out to be. Just read the textbook and go to class. It's tough, but give some effort and you'll be fine.

HARD. RUDE. Does not try and help students at all. In fact he tries to do the opposite. Does not teach the material well in any form. Expects students to basically learn it themselves. He must think his class is the only class students have and the most important, which is definitely not the case.i would NOT recommend him at all.

He has a obvious liberal slant and incorporates it constantly. Class isn't difficult, but it isn't easy either. Not a professor to take unless you're a liberal yourself.

HARD!!!! He is a great teacher and makes class very interesting but you WILL bust your butt trying to get a decent grade. If you have a hard time memorizing facts I would not suggest this class as that is what the majority of the tests are and the final is 1/2 write the terms with no word bank. YOu will learn tons though!

Great Professor. Challenges students to think for themselves... expects students to be prepared, but will work with those that need assistance. Opens many students eyes to the fact that not all Christians are political conservatives.

Excellent teacher. Dr. Elrod gives 110% to the class and expects you to do the same. Yes, you do need to read the book, take notes, complete assignments and perform as an adult. As a returning student who is completing his degree in order to teach, it was a pleasure to take a class with Dr. Elrod. I highly recommend his class.

The Boss Rod is a pretty remarkable individual and professor. He has a great sense of humor and gets to know his students. Even though Geography is not his subject of choice, he has done the best with what he was given. Definitely take him for Intl Relations and go to the SI! Also, READ YOUR BOOK! NO MATTER WHAT CLASS IT IS!!!
