What an experience.I certainly got my money's worth out of that class. When I read Goethe I hear his voice.He brought history to life.He loves his subject and makes you love it too. I would take ANY class he taught.He pushes you to be your best.Tough, but Great!

CMLT333 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A huge chunk of the class was spent on Faust: Part II, which isn't even read in German schools because of its difficulty. He then expects us to write a great essay even though most of us didn't understand a word of it. He explains things to us as if we're grad school students with deep understanding of the material, even though this only Gen-Ed!

Very hard class, rambles during lectures. You never know what is important and what isn't.

Very challenging, a lot of work and a hard grader. But I really learned a lot from attending class. Wouldn't recommend skipping; it'll show on your final

CLAS205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This guy is so fustrating. This class is a general ed class and he treats it like a upper level class. Who seriously assigns a over 7500 words midterm over spring break. His lectures are all over the place so half the time I'm confused to what is important information. I don't recommend him as a professor to anyone.

It is hard to follow his train of thought, since he's always jumping from one place to the next

This guy is the worst Prof I have ever had the displeasure of. He is so full of himself there is no room for others in his little world. Cracks jokes only the peanut gallery laughs at, but thinks he's the bees-knees of Professors.

LIT101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Class requirements were clearly defined and explained each time before a test was given. This is not a class that you can miss and get a good grade in it. However, if you do the reading and are there for the lecture, it should be easy to get a good grade.

So I thought people must be exaggerating. They're not. His lectures are absurd and teach nothing. He swoons over the most ridiculous things and expects students to do the same. He's the most pompous person I've ever met - we had to watch a video of him speaking about something he'd already said just for his ego. Exams force you to make up junk.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR. This has been my worst teacher in college. Gives D's and F's at will, gave over half my class D's on a paper. So please make your life easy and DO NOT TAKE HIM.

W233 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His class has been one of the worst experiences I've had: very unhelpful, vague, rigid, and uncompromising. He has an air of prestige that follows him wherever he goes. Very rigid MLA and sentence structure rules--no room for creativity. Will give B's and A's if it is up to his own biased standard.

Lots of busywork. If you do the work you can easily get an A. Hell I suck at English, but I got an A.

He is one of the most unsenative profs i have ever had to deal with! All he cared about was himself and his "scholary wisdom"

If you can figure out what he wants you will learn. Otherwise, forget it.
