"Get ready to read"

She teaches the same material from more than a decade ago. You'll send her your final paper and she will not look at it (or if she does you never get any kind of feedback). Honestly her classes are really boring and repetitive. She does't even seem motivated by her own subject.

SPA 117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is AWFUL. She is not clear on anything, when she goes over terms for tests, she asks the class what she thinks is the definition. She never tells you anything clearly. Group presentations are annoying and class is kind of pointless. The voluntary work was the only beneficial part.

SPA117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

WORST teacher i have ever had. unclear, unfair tests. Extremely disorganized class. the professor never explained anything, and expected us to know odd facts for our tests. She never discussed our reading, and lectures were very dull. The class was not taught according to the course description either. AVOID at all costs

The most disorganized prof I've had at Davis!! Very unclear what was expected of us other than attendance was required. The course description and what went on in class did not match at all. I was very disappointed in the uselessness of this class and the unhelpfulness of the professor. She gives out A's and B's though, but I didn't earn it.

Colombi is a very nice person and knows the material well. She is also very involved in the community. Her class, however, is completely disorganized. There is also a lot of reading. I would recommend her because it is easy to get a good grade in her class. Even if you think you have no idea what's going on, you'll probably get an A!

Colombi is intelligent. However, she needs to have a more organized class with clear expectations and lectures. This class has an incredible amount of reading and you don't figure out what she wants until you have done work. Avoid taking this class!

She is the worst professor in the spanish dept. She is unorganized and unclear. There is way too much reading and it is all really dry. If you can avoid taking her class do!
