Dr. Dean is awesome! If you listen to his lectures (which are usually interesting) and put at least some effort into your work, passing should be an easy task. Dr. Dean is helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to understand as well as entertaining

As already outlined below, Dr. Dean is an overall pleasure to be around. He's extremely knowledgeable and an excellent conversationalist. Every class was like an on-going conversation, mostly about the topic at hand (Presidential Rhetoric for this class) and sometimes about things. This style makes it enjoyable for everyone. Take his class!

HON110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Dean is a really cool guy. Our class studied leadership lessons through film so we would take notes one week and watch a movie the next week. Midterm and final were kind of difficult so read the assigned articles ! Put adequate time in on the reflection sets for the movies and the two small projects and you will get a B easily.

HON320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Dean was fantastic. We had a class where we studied leadership through film, which meant watching movies about international leaders. It was a great class and he was a great teacher. Tests were really in-depth and pretty difficult but he usually graded with a curve and I still got an A. You're lucky if you get to take this class!

Kevin is a nice guy and an engaging professor who really knows how to connect with his audience. You will learn a lot about public speaking! However, he has no attention for anything other than Honors or South Africa. Don't have any other interests that conflict with his class.

Discussions in this class were awesome; Kevin really made it fun and made us want to be there. Yes you do have work and he will expect you to maintain a high standard, but even that can be fun. He absolutely loves his job, and his enthusiasm is contagious. He responds to our emails quickly, and cares about all of us. Will definitely miss him

Enthusiastic about teaching and life in general- it's infectious. Cares about EVERY student in his class, pushed us hard but in a loving way. Kevin makes learning fun, and is someone you'd want as a friend because of how exciting he can be. It might be mandatory, but its a class I hated to miss: discussions were the best.

Kevin Dean is the best teacher I have encountered yet at WCU. He is truly inspiring, and I have never walked out of his class without a smile on my face (though it was 3 hours). He cares about each and every student and gives useful advice for in and outside of the classroom. Wonderful man! Hard tests, but easy paper grades make up for it! TAKE THI

Overall, I'd say he's a good professor. Worth taking the class, but it does drag on sometimes. The class is called Aid to South Africa, but it should be called Make You Sick of Hearing About South Africa. but it is worthwhile stuff to learn. He is a funny guy, but his grading of papers and writing emphasis gets obnoxious sometimes. Good professor.
