FT 360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Hall is a very nice man, but extremely boring. I have dozed off in class several times. He is a journalism professor teaching a film requirement with helpful TAs. This class is ALL about TAs, though. They grade your essays. Hall might look at them, but the TAs have final say. The movies in class are fine, but old. Just another boring class.

CO 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Most frustrating professor i've had so far in COM. He'll encourage you to go to the writing center because he runs it and even though he'll give you an extension on assignments just for going there you'll get a B at the most. Did not agree with his grading at all whatsoever. Don't take 201 with him you'll just end up frustrated and annoyed

COM360 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is such a nice guy! I found the class to be pretty tedious, but very very rarely you stay until 9pm he always lets you out early and there's one screening a week so it doesn't even feel like class. His lectures before class are interesting he gets the class going on debates and just an all round nice guy and knows his stuff! Definitely take him

CO201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Hall is an amazing teacher. I read reviews about him before coming to this class, expecting this to be a tedious and tough class, but I was wrong. He was extremely clear with instructions and his lectures were useful. Grading is difficult, but I highly recommend that you go visit him during office hours. Take him for CO 201!

CO201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Hall was amazing. I was worried about summer school but taking his CO201 class was the best decision I've made all year. The assignments aren't easy and some people say he's a tough grader, but if you go to the writing center and do the work you can't go wrong. It's also worth mentioning that he is really helpful and has a good sense of humor

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

John Hall is the best professor that I've encountered in the film department. Creates an environment that is extremely laid back; however, his grading is tough and by no means is he going to let you coast. His grading is very useful and he will really push you to improve yourself as a writer. Has a good sense of humor.I had film crit with him

Prof. Hall was a fair, nice and generally helpful instructor. He doesn't grade easy, but he makes it clear what you need to do to do well in the class. I really enjoyed him and the class. Take Hall if you get the chance for COM 201.

I was hesitant to take Hall based upon these ratings but I'm so glad I did- I really liked his class. He provides outstanding material and resources and his approach to assignments is great compared to what my friends were doing in their COM 201 classes. He's not the most enthusiastic guy but he keeps class interesting and helps your writing a lot.

he is a terrible teacher; he plays favorites, and his grading is too subjective.
