Don is a nice and funny man but his class is very difficult. For an intro level course, there is way too much information and the tests are very hard. If you do not understand business before this class, I would not recommend it.

Literally the nicest, most ethical guy I have ever met. Don is incredibly passionate about what he teaches. Even if you have no interest in business, there is so much you can take aware from his class. I strongly recommend you find some way to take one of his classes.

Amazingly inspirational professor who will teach you much more then you asked for. Not only lessons for the classroom, but lessons for life. A wise man who's lived his share of adventures and is only here to make your success. He knows he's talking to 'future leaders'.

I really enjoyed this class. Don always tried to make sure everyone understood the topics discussed. He was very concerned with ethics. He made a strong effort to make a personal connection with every member of our very large class.

He cares about teaching but may come off a little too much on the left side of the spectrum

Although I have only completed one semester of college, Don was the best teacher I've ever had. He is the perfect professor for this class because he shows you every aspect of business and is unbelievably enthusiastic about everything he says. The class is not hard as long as you read each chapter and study it. I recommend making outlines.

He really wants his students to learn and is very enthusiastic about what he does. I was not a fan of his in the beginning because he seemed...odd. However, overtime he grew on me because he had good intentions.
