Okay, so she isn't an easy marker and you do have to put in the hours to get a decent grade...but she's extremely passionate about her topics, gives good, organized lectures, and is absolutely hilarious and entertaining. If you can manage putting in the effort, take something with her.

Bablitz is AMAZING. She's hilarious and extremely engaging; her passion for the subject is evident right from the start. Having said that, she is a tough one to please... So you may not get the best grade but you'll have fun! :) Do it!

Absolutely mind-blowingly phenomenal teacher. She's so passionate and it really shows! Appears snarky at first when answering questions in class, but if you approach her during office hours she is warm and sunny and very kind. She was the deciding point on becoming a Classical Studies major. She made history come to life - love it! A++++++ teacher!

Great Prof! Engaging anfd generally knows her stuff- if she doesn't have the answer to a question she will find it for you. Rewards hard work and attendance with good marks but does not play favourites- if you slack off you will not do well. She marks hard, but fairly. Makes the content interesting and fun to learn!

Has a strong personality that takes awhile to get used to. Took 2 classes with her,she comes off as pretentious when talking to students but I think it more reflects her sense of humor on the subject.once you get used to her she is helpful and her passion for the subject keeps the class interesting.

If you like to speak up, I think you'd enjoy this class. Prof. Bablitz is very amusing, but she can also be very confusing--she makes a lot of mistakes in latin and then students correct her!

TERRIBLE!!! I've been in Classics for 5 years and have never had a prof this atrocious. Arrogant, snarky, rude, pretentious and mean! Throws around Latin terminology like everyone had taken Latin before and answers questions with sarcasm and condescension. Avoid like the plague, she is a very UNHAPPY person.

I have had the pleasure of taking a number of classes with Prof. Bablitz and have loved every minute of them! Yes, you have to attend class but she is so interesting and passionate that mandatory attendance is not much trouble. Her classes are organized so that you get what you put in. If you are prepared to work then you will do well!

My favourite Classical Studies professor! She is strict but fair, and makes the topics really come alive. If a question was raised in class that she did not know the answer to she would generally come to the next class with the answer. A bit of a hard marker, but definitely worth taking her classes!

This course was a pleasure to take and Professor Bablitz is extremely knowledgeable, fun and passionate about her Roman history...this is a course worth taking no matter what faculty/discipline you are in...the primary sources of Suetonius, Plutarch and Tacitus are all entertaining to read and give a great view into the Roman world.

one word: HARD!!! we have to read about 100 pages/week and we have a quiz every week. you would think that by reading you can get a perfect grade right? wrong. the quiz is sooo random and you never know what's going to be on it. she chooses random tid bits that no one even remembers.

She has really high expectations for her students and as other comments suggest, her marking isn't really fair. If she likes you then you've got it made.

Totally agree with the hard and arbitrary marking comment. She plays favorites and treats students like kids even when she does not know the subject matter well herself.

I quite liked her. She's enthusiastic and engaging. Explains things clearly. Marks fairly. She's pretty humourous too.

Hard marker and even admits she doesnt know the subject, yet will grade you harshly. I wouldnt take her for any class again.

Agree with the comments below. Hard marking, poor organization of lectures, took forever to get grades and papers back.

Second worst prof I've had in 4 years. Scatterbrained and hopelessly disorganized. Marks too hard. Talks too fast. Takes FOREVER to return tests/papers. Comments are mean and unhelpful. Lacks sound knowledge, terrible at answering questions. Through all this remains arrogant and sarcastic to the point of offensive. Save your GPA and avoid her.
