One of my favorite professors. Very clear and lenient, knows the material as well. Went out of his way to ensure that everyone enjoyed the class, including taking us all out on a tour to Nellis AFB free of charge. Awesome person, highly recommend him !!

This professor is hilarious and makes the class so entertaining! Whether you like history or not, you'll love him! He's clear and direct. Gives plenty of time in advance to study for quizes and exams. He's easy to approach if you have questions and is very helpful.

Dr. Clayson is a great professor, he kept my interest all semester, attendance is a must, and you will read the textbook a lot because he bases the quizzes on the book.

He was nice and funny. Class was definitely entertaining! As long as you read the book, it's a pretty easy class. Also, coming to class makes the tests and quizzes a lot easier. Oh, NO ESSAYS!

Was hoping to take him for 102 but he changed campus. Very easy, there is a lot of reading and some short essays but he is very easy if you keep with the assignments!

Funny guy, but lots of work in the class, you need to be there or you will fall behind and miss topics discussed that aren't in the book. Nice guy though.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took his class online in summer. I wouldnt say his class is ridiculously easy; maybe for a brainiac with no job or other responsibilities. There is a lot of work, i.e. writing discussions,essays, field trips, quizzes, but I found his grading to be pretty easy so I eeked out a good grade

Clayson's class is ridiculously easy. Its barely college level work. Whoever wrote the entry below must be looking for a class where you do nothing at all for your grade.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Took Hist 101 online summer class.Stupid amount of homework, lots of reading,lots of writing. Worst part is working on submiting an assignment and then you have to go read and comment on 3 other peoples work,and there's a couple of them every week. He writes his own tests so he likes to impress you with how much HE knows. Not always clear.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I did not have an enjoyable experience with Dr. Clayson. He seems very arbitrary in his grading, telling you after the fact what he wants emphasized, rather than before you turn an assignment in. He'll go down as the worst grade I've received in college and it's still rather inexplicable.

Class is fun and interesting, midterm and final are solid, one short book with three book discussions, good class, fairly easy to pass if you put in just a little effort. Great teacher.

HIST102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Honestly I really liked this class. His lectures were interesting and not that boring. We take notes in the classes but usually they are not in the book. So its best to attend to each class. The quizzes are really easy and the midterm and final aren't that bad if you study. Just read the book and you will get a good grade.

HIST102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I didnt care for this professor at all.He didnt seem organized with his power points and at times he would go of on long tangents. Powerpoints where mainly filled with photos and not enough infromation. Moreover the teacher would forget to tell his students about quizzes and would go against what was in the syllabes.
