GEO 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had Pro. Nash for Natural Disasters. No textbook was required, and most of the time all the work was completed in class (there was at least one small assignment every week). There were two large projects towards the end of the semester. One you did as a group, and one you could do by yourself or as a group too.

There are only four essays in class, and she doesn't grade harshly. I really enjoyed this class. Her TA was great, and I learned a lot from her lecture. Although you got to do some research to write a nice paper, you will enjoy the class for sure!! Always go to class since there will be in-class assignments.

I thought this class had way too many writing assignments for a 1000 level course. I put a lot of effort into my papers and I thought she graded them harshly. If you like writing papers then take this class.

GEO1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Extremely easy class! Perfect for general ed science requirement. No exams, no textbook. Attendance is not part of your grade, but you need to show up to do the in-class assignments (which are very easy). You will have many writing assignments, one for each segment of the course, but they aren't graded too harshly. I highly recommend this class.

Natural Disaster class is one of my favories at the University of Utah. Barbara's sense of humor will make you to come to class everyday. She is very knowledgable and willing to help you if you are in need of help. I tend to sleep a lot during the class, but Natural Disaster curse was actually fascinating and fun. Her TA is also fantastic!!

Nash was one of my favorite professors and made her class one really interesting. There is no required textbook or tests. Prepare to write quite a few essays (which are pretty easy) and in class assignments. Nash's humor makes the class worth attending. You will also get to watch a few movies which are really fun and basically free points.

GEO1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Natural Disasters (GEO1000) was a pretty basic general ed class. No textbook, no tests, or quizzes, but the class does require 3-4 essays, one final project, and various little assignments; but is overall fairly easy. Dr. Nash is knowledgeable, extremely organized, and prepared. In class assignments are frequent so you have to attend class.

I really, really enjoyed this class. Prof. Nash makes class interesting and fun. There are no quizzes/tests, or a textbook, and the assignments are extremely straightforward as long as you show up to class to do them. Great prof.

Nash was quite possibly one of the best prof's I've had in five years. She was always there to help students and had a quirky humor which I absolutely loved. She is an incredible lecturer and I would recommend her to anyone.
