COMM 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is wonderfully in love and passionate about the theatre and it completely shows in her detailed knowledge and teaching. It’s a fairly easy class with only short little assignments, the midterm, and a group final. Transportation and tickets are arranged/paid for with the cost of the class making it really easy to go to the mandatory performances

COMM 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Took her Theatre Appreciation class. Really enjoyed it. Much better and easier than Music Apprec. from what I've heard. Just a little reading, a midterm and a final project. Take notes and the midterm will be a breeze. The final project is a lot of work, but you have a while to work on it. Just show respect and interest and she can be your friend

COMM 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She really cares about her students. There is a bit of work, but not too much. No quizzes or final, but there is a midterm which is easy. You don't need to read the book, but sometimes you need to bring it to class. Just do your work and she'll be happy with you. You might need to speak up in class a few times, but overall she's really nice.

Comm160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Brandon is a great professor and is passionate about theater. Attendance matters in the end so show up and you have to go to three plays so if you cant do weekend plays than don't sign up. But make sure you do all the work its easy but if you do not pay attention it gets confusing.

COMM100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She takes her class VERY seriously for an appreciation class. Overall, it was super easy, but her final project is ridiculously hard. She's a tough grader on it, and she definitely plays favorites with students. She can be nice, and her midterm is easy, but be prepared for a hard grader if you take her class.

COMM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Had her for theatre appreciation, she is very biased towards some students, but does like it when they suck up. I worked very hard on my final project, and got a grade that was much lower than I should have received.

Commappr Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She takes the class way to seriously for an intro to theatre. The final project is ridiculously difficult and very few scored well on it. Participation requirements are unclear. Got an A on everything in the class, but then my participation dropped me.

COMMCOMM Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had her for theater appreciation. She is a great teacher, but she takes the class way more seriously that she should. Grades in a manner that is biased towards certain students, but if you suck up a little and stay on her good side it is an easy A.

Comm 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I would take another teacher if you want an introductory Comm class. She is a good teacher at times, but her emphasis on things that don't matter, like speech structure can be annoying

comm.. Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Loved her. We basically learned about different theater types and went to a couple plays. She had a relaxed classroom atmosphere even though she was serious about her teaching. One time she told us to sit on top of our desks!

She's a good teacher. My confidence in speaking has sky rocketed. It was intimidating at first but it's a good class and she's a good teacher.

Comm 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The class is very clear cut. Students read the chapter before coming to class, then Brandon explains it by reading it off a Powerpoint. Very introductory class. Must participate in class discussions to get a good grade.
