Super nice woman. Scattered. Hard to understand. Stressful to watch. I like her but do not recommend her as a teacher.

Melanie Murphy is a very nice lady, but unfortunately I came out somehow knowing less about History. Murphy's terribly scattered, confused, and often seems unsure of her own facts- despite being an expert. I've been in several of her classes and I've yet to learn anything.

Most disorganized professor. I am a history major and will never take another class with her again. Scatter brained, disorganized, lost papers, missed DOUBLE DIGIT classes, and MISPLACED RESEARCH PAPERS.

She is so scatter brained it is absolutely ridiculous. There is no possible way to take notes or follow her lectures. She does not keep up with the syllabus and doesn't inform students of cancelled class. She comes to class late and disorganized with no plan. There are only about 10 people in my class and she still doesn't know our names.

I just don't know what's going on with Emmanuel if this is the professor the hire for European history. I am so disappointed I can't learn about this type of history because she teaches all of the classes. Idk how she is even employed as a professor. You will not learn a single thing if you take one of her classes. It's too bad bc she's really nice

Waited a year to take it with her, 'cause I heard the other guy was harder. Definitely not worth the wait. Unclear, unorganized, and useless. I want a refund.

Never, ever again. She does not make legible notes and is completely scattered -- always. It did not motivate me to succeed at all.

took multiple classes with Prog Murphy. she is very disorganized and scatterbrained but one of the nicest and brilliant leaders in her field of study. if you talk to her after class or email her she is very helpful at clearing up any confusion. look past her appearance and really pay attention in class and you will really learn. excellent professor

Multiple classes canceled. Multiple assignments "lost" in the office. I left this class knowing less about history and fiction than when I started. Lectures were unclear. Assignments were vague. Did not at all prepare me for MTEL--the reason I took the course.

Knows her material but really has no business teaching a class. So disorganized and scatterbrained its almost scary. The syllabus became useless 2 weeks into the course because we were so far behind. She lost numerous assignments, some worth major grades. Would never take a class with her again

She is so disorganized! its the end of the semester and we are at lest 5 chapters behind. Takes forever to hand back exams. And when she writes on the board its all over the place, she writes like 1 word from a random thought she had. She just makes no sense sometimes.

Extremely unorganized! It is impossible to take notes in her class. She relies heavily on the text book for information. You have to read and take notes on the chapter otherwise you wont know whats going on in the class. Also likes to give pop quizzes a lot

A genius with a scatterbrain - she knows so much it spills over. If you get to know her, do readings, look up/know historical context of the readings, and look up/know writers relative to the readings, she will make sense. Most benevolent prof. at Emmanuel. Often gets behind schedule and you will miss class, but TAKES ATTENDANCE.
