PHIL225 PHIL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

He is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He truly impacted me, inspired me, and believed in me. I took classes with him solely because he was the teacher. He touched my life. HACC has lost a brilliant educator who truly loved the material and his students. Rest in peace, my friend. You will always be remembered!

PHIL 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Well-spoken, thoughtful, kind man. Unique outlook on the human existence. Devoutly religious may be offended. An open mind is essential in his classes. Can be too tolerant of goofing off and interruptions. Laid back approach to syllabus, deadlines and tardiness. Tests and an essay straight from notes. Attend class, take thorough notes.

Philosophy 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Hess marches to the beat of his own drum, and has a quirky sense of humor, but that in no way hinders his knowledge and love of what he teaches. He is always willing to help students however he can. He is ever the professional, and no1 ever questioned his motives or ability to be anything more than excellent professor he is. You ROCK Mr. Hess

Phil102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is an excellent teacher who explains everything clearly. He won't kill you with work and he is very friendly. I could always count on him for advise and to explain things in a way that made me understand. I loved attending his class and he even went out of his way to wait later after class while I finished a test that I had come late for. Thx!

Phil101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is a great teacher and willing to explain anything you don't understand. Topics can be a bit dull, but this can happen with any subject. Test are easier as long as you read over your notes and make sure to keep up to date on your journal entries.

PHIL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

About 20% of what he talks about is course material, the rest is his own questionable takes on topics. There's very little class participation; monotonous and boring

PHIL102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Had him for logic & ethics and I loved him. He mumbles and normally just kind of sits in the front of the class. You really won't need the text at all (I never read them - just took pretty extensive notes and I got an A). I also do have an interest in philosophy so maybe that's why I loved it so much. But I also just thought he was a cute old man:p
