ANSO-103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Baptiste is an interesting character, that's for certain. A shame her class is so disorganized and has no structure at all. Readings are around 20+ pages every time and only serve to make a point or observation that no one truly understands until she blabs about it (if she bothers to) in class. Makes me hate anthropology. Avoid her if you can.

Very intimidating, pretty rude, and definitely plays favorites, so try and get her on her good side.

ANSO-357-01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Baptiste is one of the best professors that I have had so far! Honestly was very helpful, and really explained things in class. Granted, you definitely need to do the readings to know what is going on in class. Attendance was not a grade, but she definitely hit up my advisor when I was absent more than 3 times. Overall really enjoyed her class!

ANSO 357 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

It's pretty clear she has no interest in being a professor. I missed, like, six classes and she never cared. Kind of a waste of time and money, but it was honestly very nice to have a bit of a blowoff course the spring after study abroad.

Of the 30 class periods, 7 consisted watching a movie. Could not believe that this is what K's tuition was covering. She might be an okay professor if she had any desire to be in the classroom.

ANTH101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This was the worst teacher I had at K. I was a junior at the time, taking this anthro class so that I could minor in it. I didn't because of her. We're all biased, but she's rude. She enjoys belittling students. Outside of the classroom, she has done and said things that have deeply disturbed me and some of my fellow students. Unacceptable.

ANSO270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

worst teacher ever. awful class. made me consider transferring. her lectures are useless and don't relate to the readings at all. we never discussed the tons of reading assigned. she does not give guidelines on any of her assignments, and the feedback she offers on assignments are useless, if she gives feedback at all. extremely subjective grader

I strongly considered transferring schools after I took one of her classes. Avoid at all costs, if you enjoy your life.

Teaching isn't her passion and understandably so, she's not very good at it. She requires readings for a non-prerequisite class that one would have to have had years experience in. She's walked out on our class at least twice. AWFUL. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
