SOCL 145 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Professor Wedam is a nice lady, but is super unorganized and forgets a lot of things. Inconsistent grader and her exams are ambiguous. Her power point slides don't make much sense either and I have no idea what's going on in class with her lectures alone. I have to go and do my own research to understand what is going on. would not recommend

SOCL 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely kind lady, but seemingly unintelligent about her topic. Inconsistent grader in my opinion. A few pretty easy papers, 2 tests (multiple choice) and a final (not cumulative). Attendance is taken daily and downgrades for no participation. Didn't really learn much, there are better Sociology teachers out there.

SOCL 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Wedam is nice and the assignments are easy to get A's on if you follow directions exactly. The tests are all multiple choice, there are only two essays, but 4 other written assignments. It's a very boring class, and she doesn't explain things very well. You won't get much out of this class, but it's very easy. You do use the textbook a lot too!

Nice lady, class lectures were a little dry, but worth it for a GPA boost! Class attandence is necessary, a few short papers, lots of extra credit opportunities. Final was a little of a curve ball but not bad. Bought the hundred dollar book... never had to use it.. But I would not pass her sociology 101 class up if you are looking for an easy A!

Easy A. She does take attendance, but if you just go to class, you will probably get full participation points without ever raising your hand. She is an extremely easy grader. Not very interesting or clear, but if you just want an A, take her. I never did the readings, she covers most of it in lectures.

Very easy sociology101 core! DEFINITELY take her class! Bought the book and never really opened it, her class is very common sense. Standard ppt/note taking class, can get boring, but at times interesting! Don't hesitate in taking her class when available!

Very easy class for the core. Her class can be interesting some days but very boring other days. Her assignments are interesting and her tests are very easy if you complete her study guides.

I like Dr. Wedam, she is funny and engaging. The class is easy, if you show up and turn the assignments in on time you will make an easy A as many others have said.

Boring boring boring. She starts class late, is disorganized, and switches topics a lot. Don't expect to get anything out of her lectures. The class is pretty easy but is not enjoyable at all.

Class is interesting although sometimes lectures aren't thrilling. The 8, 5 pt assignments she gives are really easy. 2 research assignments which are also easy (she's a very easy grader). Her study guides go right along with the tests. If you know the terms and concepts, you'll get an A. TAKE HER! She's funny and understanding.

It is very easy to do well in Dr. Wedam's class. I never read the text book and ended up with an A. Easy 5 point homework assignments, several extra credit opportunities, and gives study guides with questions straight from the test. She's kinda boring but worth it for the GPA booster!!

Prof. Wedam demands a lot from a 101 course. There are two exams, several reading guides, and the final consists of multiple choice and one short essay including two long essays. She gives study guide questions which are a plus, but in order to do them you must read the ENTIRE book. It's not a hard class, but it's no breeze either.

Elfriede is very nice, but a terrible teacher. She has trouble speaking in front of class and it is a struggle to sit through the whole thing. She assigns a lot a of little assignments that account for very little of your grade. She does take attendance even if you think that she isn't (She knows EVERYONE by name). Tests are ok. She gives study gui

Her class is just okay. She is really boring and her lectures never seem to connect with her tests. She has a lot of small assignment, but only make up 11% of grade. You have to come to class and she likes to call on people during class. I had to take this for my education major, but otherwise don't take this class. At the end of the year you have

this class is so boring. prof rambles on and doesn't give any useful lectures. i wouldn't come to class if she didn't take attendance. she grades harshly on papers and reading assignments and tests can be difficult and questions are iffy. i am not crazy about this class so i would avoid.

Not the greatest public speaker, so the class could drag. A nice woman, knowledgeable about the topics. There were 4 tests including the final(she always made a study guide), 2 papers (graded fairly), and she usually showed a video or invited a guest speaker to reinforce her lecture. Overall an easy A.
