RELI201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Collender is the best professor I have ever had. He is extremely energetic, extremely smart, and genuinely concerned about you as a student. He truly opens your mind and takes you into a different realm. Loved going to class. Don't know why is rated so low. Apparently, he has some movie deal with Warner Bros too...?

PHIL201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Perhaps the best professor I've ever had. This guy might seem hard, but it is worth it to stay in his class. He teaches Philosophy in such an excellent manner and with such great knowledge. Always helpful. If you want to take a philosophy class at the 100 or 200 level, or really anything else he teaches, he's the guy you want. Best professor ever.

DPLS745 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is well read and energetic about the subject matter. However, as others have mentioned, he is difficult to get a hold of via email. In my course, he was unclear about expectations for a class presentation. He also was a no-show to an out of class discussion that we scheduled with him. He seems to struggle with administrative details.

PHIL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great prof. Requires quite a bit of discourse with him, but as long as you get involved in class discussions and voice your opinion, you will mostly understand what he is getting at. He helped me make my decision to switch my major to phil. Unfortunately he in VERY unreliable when it comes to responding to Email, which is incredibly frustrating.

Collender is completely off his rocker (duly noted in the part of the class where he climbs on things) but his class is great! I had a 3 hour night class and was always entertained and learned a ton. Very few assignments, but always interesting.

He was practically non-exisitent in class, providing very little feedback (none of which was constructive) and always doing so well behind schedule. If I had him for my first or second class at GU, I would have left the program.

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

He is very witty and funny. However he is confusing, does not explain things well and doesn't really care about you or your grade. I would not recommend this class

He seems like a nice and cool guy but he doesn't teach you anything besides his own self-righteous dogmas. He's overdramatic and picks on kids.

I really enjoyed taking his class. He uses the book alot but i found it easier just to photo copy the pages out of friends rather then buying the book. He's fun and really enthusiastic about the course.
