COM5407 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

This class is by far the worst I've ever taken. She is not helpful in the slightest.Her assignments are vaguely worded, and her "teaching" consists of you reading the book and answering questions. Her feedback is immediate and incredibly shallow, making it clear that she doesn't read responses. Avoid her if you can.

COM5407 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I wish I had taken the advice of the previous individuals. She is anal about APA, and doesn't try to inspire you but tear you down with her comments. I learned nothing in her class and she seemed distant. I had to graduate, so I couldn't avoid her class.

COM5401.E1 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

The Speech Communication course COM5401 is extremely challenging, but Dr. Hufman really knows her stuff, is very fair, and is helpful to the students. She provides excellent feedback and answers all emails promptly.

COM5405 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Huffman is excellent! You will have to work for your grade; it’s not an easy course. There is a lot of writing and the professor will challenge you, both with the content of your work and the proper use of APA. If you are a serious student interested in learning then this course along with this professor will meet your needs.

COM5445 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Instructor gave very little effort in providing information about why points were lost. Nearly every document provided by the instructor (instructions, etc.) contained numerous typos. When grading, instructor appears to be more concerned with APA formatting than writing quality or creative thinking. I recommend this course, but not this instructor.

COMM12 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very strict on APA style, but not the offical edition of APA, a pocket style manual, which is not true APA style. Rude, and whatever you do, don't "think outside the box" when writing your papers. Being "Christian" is what you live, not just an automated response citing the bible from your email, for which she does not respond to timely at all.

COM6303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Needs to be more concrete about her expectations. Very vague. Let preachers teach about Jesus, and just teach the class.

COM4445 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is the 4th class I have taken with this instructor and I would obviously take her again. Once you take a class or two from her you get the hang of what is expecting and the classes become much easier ( I made A's in my last two classes with her). She is a fair grader and for the most part I agree with most of previous comments.

COMM4405 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This professor is extremely challenging. In truth, she's extremely biased, heavily political, and has a very hard stance on following APA format to the letter and citing everything under the sun. And she uses too many books. BUT - she's a good professor, provides a lot of feedback (if you press her), and she is very passionate about the subject.
