"Inspirational" "Respected by students" "Gives good feedback"

Professor was real with the class. He talked to us on a level that made sense and made it interesting to listen to, especially with the stories from his own experience. I was also extremely impressed by the feedback that was given on our assignments. It was very useful and very detailed. Best feedback I have ever received in a class.

Com1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

Every assignment we were given had real world application. I never felt like I was doing busy work. Bill's feedback on assignments also helped me to improve for future class and work experiences. Having a great teacher who makes class interesting and fun to go to really helped me learn. I always learned something new and that was awesome.

Class was hard but I learned a LOT. I'm at Westminster now. Bill's COM class was the ONLY class I took at SLCC that prepared me for the rigor of classes here. Not hard to figure out since Bill is a Westminster grad. Thanks Bill. The hard work you required is paying off.

Most important thing I learned from this instructor...He likes to talk about himself..a lot! So just make sure to periodically let him and it seems to help with the grade you receive. Honestly I've heard he is one of the harder comm 1020 instructors just because of the amount of work you have to do. 6 speeches and 2 papers throughout the semester.

Really enjoyed class. Lecture was always interesting with his personal stories. Quite a bit of work, but NO busy work. Tests aren't too hard if you study. If you don't, you got no room to complain. Highly recommended!

COMM 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C+

The only way you'll do well in this class is if you share the same views as him. I truly am comfortable speaking in front of others and everyone else loved my speeches, yet he only gave me a C. Be sure you speak about his interests. P.s. he loves to talk about himself, that's all you'll really learn about.

DEFINITELY my favorite teacher! He loves to teach public speaking does it in a way that gets his students to love it too. I learned so much from him without really realizing it, and I remember what I learned because I enjoyed it so much! I always recommend his classes to others. If all teachers were like him, then everyone would love learning!

comm 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This teacher lectures only about his experiences as a wrestler. He is also very slow at grading material if at all. It is impossible to know your grade until after the final, when he gives you whatever grade he feels you deserve. Would never take another class from him....

Best class of the semester! Bill is an awesome professor. He applies everything to life and uses excellent examples. We only did a few presentations, but I am so much better at public speaking than before. He tells you exactly what he expects, doesn't give ridiculous assignments and is always willing to help. I will be taking Comm1020 from him now!

Took 1010, best class I'd had at SLCC. Then took 1020. Even better! Kilpack is awesome. REALLY wants you to learn all that he can stuff into your brain, be it communication, college or just life. HIGHLY recommend him. Fun and furious. Kilpack rocks!

Great class. Wish I had it beforehand. Wouldve helped alot in other courses. Bill is great. More like a coach than a teacher. I like that. If you don't pull your weight he lets you know. Then tries to help fix it. Like a good coach should. Thank you Bill. Youre appreciated.
