Very nice woman. Genuinely interested in the field. Cares about her students and is always available for help -she gives you her private cell # and returns calls. Good class.

SSW7105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This professor is really knowledgeable. She knows her subject and always happy to answer the questions. Her course is very well structured and organized. She asks to do the readings and BB postings, but in the end those are extremely helpful for learning.

HBSE711 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A couple of points about Prof. Danto. Students preferred Dr. Danto's lectures to the discussion because she has such amazing knowledge and scholarship; she used "abstract language" because this was a Theory course and she was teaching from primary sources. Sure, go try another HBSE professor. You'll come running back to Danto.

Pol1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She says it herself, she wears her opinions on her sleeve! But that's what going to school is all about, right? Being pushed by passionate people. She holds high standards, but is understanding. I really enjoyed her class, would recommend her to anyone.

POL701 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoy Professor Danto's class. Yes-- she is opinionated, but admittedly so. However, she is clearly brilliant and has helped me break down the opinions I have in order to understand where my (and people I disagree with's) belief systems are coming from.

POL702 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Overly outspoken and opinionated and rarely examines validity in anything other than what she believes.

HBSE711 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely knowledgable but would be better as a lecturer, not a facilitator of what should be a discussion class. She is very opinionated and disregards student comments that she disagrees with. She has to have an answer for everything and never turns it back to the class for discussion. She also speaks in extremely vague terms.

HBSE711 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I've decided to post some comments now that I've graduated. All current and future students should know that Prof. Danto is Hunter's top teacher. Some find her daunting at first but then they realize that they are LEARNING stuff, and I can't say the same of all profs at the school. She's totally worth the hard work.

Prof Danto is the real thing. She's Hunter's best, tough but a good person and a brilliant woman.
