Theo 3310 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Would take again" "Respected by students" "Clear grading criteria"

Prof. Tilley is wonderful. I took this just as a core req. and it's more than an average workload but I enjoyed the class. She's very clear about what she wants and isn't too hard of a grader + lots of opportunities to do well. I'm not interested in theology at all but she really knows her stuff & makes it bearable. I recommend her for sure

THEO Fall 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her course was very confusing, the black board readings are so disorganized and not in dated chronological order as per syllabus.If your a Rose Hill student you will do fine, she seems to cater to this student body. An example would be delaying instruction until the arrival of commuting RH students. Not recommended unless you don't value your GPA.

THEO3316 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Her class is great if you're a theo minor/major, but if you're just getting rid of your second theo req. then I suggest you avoid her class. There's a lot of reading, but she thoroughly covers the content of all. She'll gladly answer your questions and explain things as best as possible. It's not an easy A nor an easy B.

If you are a lazy student, don't take her class. She is wonderful, interesting, and very helpful. She gives lots of quizzes on the readings but that helps your grade because she picks only the best 7. Go for office hours, be interested, and you'll do well. I absolutely loved her and this class. Take Byzantine Christianity.

THEO3330 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

A lot of people don't like her but I think she is absolutely wonderful. She gives a lot of tests but that is only for your own benefit so your grade is not relying on your midterm and final. She is also hysterical. I looked forward to seeing her every class.

mediv1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Tilley is the most horrible teacher you can get at Fordham. She is like AIDs she will slowly kill you and your GPA with her insane ridiculouse amounts of work. This is a core class but she takes it like learning Medieval Christian history will complete your life. She is absolutely awful. If you want a life then dont take her class.

medie001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She's really awesome.. a good teacher and a really nice lady. She acts like she's really srict about things, but if you talk to her one on one she'll let things slide.I hate fordham for making me take religion classes, but this actually really interested me and made me want to go to class.It's not the easiest class, but you can do well if you try.

RSLU2715 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

she's an ok professor, gives A LOT of readings which are very repititive and a waste of time. you need to participate and do well on EVERY assignment in order to do well in her class cause her grading system is so wack. her papers aren't too hard but there are pop quizzes which are annoying. if you have an option don't take her.

RSLU2610 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Telly's class was very hard to follow. She assigns TONS of reading but never really explained any of it in a structured way. Yon really end up learning nothing in the end because there is just so much material. She is a nice, smart lady, but thats the only good thing I could say. I am a good student and tried my hardest, but ended up with a B-

rslu1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

OMG. Avoid Tilley like the plague. She gives tons of readings, none of which make sense. She grades papers in the most bizarre way. She gives pop quizzes constantly. She expects you to participate in class even though there is a great chance she realizes you don't have a clue what's going on. If u must take her course, kiss ass.
