Prof Benestad takes his class very seriously and as a result, grades papers and expositions thoroughly. They are not easy, but if you do not get the grade you want, go see him in his office hours and he is more than willing to show you how to improve, even going so far as to re read your paper and give alterations verbally. So helpful and kind.

Benestad is indeed very conservative. He does know his stuff, but don't take the class unless your catholic. He grades papers as if it was a grammar class. do not take this class if you don't have perfect proofreading skills.

Theo122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A terrible Professor. He cares more about imposing his ideas and opinions on his students rather than listening to his students. He says he wants to hear your opinions but translated that means he wants to hear his opinion in your own words. If you are not willing to do that you have no reason to take his class. Not a fan of his class at all!

TRS122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Prof benestad is a nice man who cares for his students, but very strict and conservative. a lotttt of reading and a lotttt of writing. if writing isn't your thing, don't take his class. most of class he says how college students sin by drinking and "hooking up." final's hard and attendance is mandatory. not recommended.

TRS121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher! He knows his stuff and is definately interesting. However, he is very conservative in his beleifs. He cares about his students too. He is very big on writing in proper english. But an all around great professor.
