He isn't the nicest professor like everyone says. Sometimes he can be rude, especially in emails.

I am beyond thankful I chose Professor Nickerson for Public Speaking. I was like most people, I never wanted to take a public speaking class and waited until the last minute. Nickerson is an easy going guy, such an awesome person. He knows how to make everything casual and comfortable for the class. I definitely recommend him!

This guy is amazing. He's a great teacher! If your new to public speaking, and new to getting up in front of the class, take him. He makes it so easy to just get up there and do your thing. I have never taken a public speaking course before now, and I have an 87 in his class. No tests, just speeches. do your outlines and prepare and you'll do great

SPE-121-87 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He was a really easy going guy. I took him for winter and you only had to write 3 speeches and one 2 pg paper. Speeches were to inform, demonstrative, and the last one was a persuasive one. There are no tests. You get graded based on attendance, speeches and post speech evaluations (2 page paper evaluating how you did)

I took the hybrid version of his class. While he is a great guy and I reccomend him, I suggest you take his regular class. The hybrid class is full of online discussion boards, which are pointless and time wasters. Also despite what he says you don't need the book, he scans all the pages you need online.

TAKE HIM!! That had to have been one of the easiest classes I've ever taken. Get up there, do your speech and thats it. No final, no hw, just show up and thats it. Really down to earth friendly guy, real easy going. Would take again for sure.

Prof. Nickerson is excellent! His class was fun, educating, and easy. There are 3 speeches and barely ever hw besides preparing the speeches. He is a great guy and extremely helpful. He is pretty funny too, I was rarely bored in his class. He has to be the best speech teacher in MCC. Take his class if you get the chance for sure!

The sweetest teacher ever. He truly cares about his students and my class was so comfortable with each other that giving speeches became so easy. He was interested in everything that's said and he is a genuinely great person.

Very cool and relatable who makes you feel comfortable to speak in front of the class. The speeches are easy- although, maybe too easy. I only feel slightly more comfortable speaking in front of a crowd coming out of this class. It definitely helped, though. Seeing as most MCC students need to take public speaking, I would definitely recommend him.

COM105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had Nickerson for 105&121. He is a wonderful professor and a very sweet person. He is always willing to work with students and has a passion for teaching. His stories were always interesting and funny. The work can be languid from time to time, but it shouldn't deter you from his class. I think he is the best com professor at MCC.

Glad I took this course as a summer class! Professor J, was very clear in his expectations and very fair. He is very laid back, which seemed to help many with public speaking fears. If you have a fear of public speaking but need to take the class, he is a great teacher to help you get through it. You will feel more confident by the end of class!

Very easy class. It basically consists of watching youtube videos and doing very easy assignments. If you follow his formats for the speeches, youll be fine! The only thing is the class can be very boring but overall a great one to take--so glad I did. Do it!
