CRIMJ 1100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

LOVED HIM! This class is about my major though, so of course. Gave lots of E.C.(on a whim, usually) assignments and questions on tests. Keeps it interesting and real. Does tend to get a little soap-boxypreachy occasionally. Funny and really nice guy. Class is all lectures, with some student participation. TAKE NOTES (from book and class)!

"Respected by students" "Amazing lectures" "Inspirational"

I've taken Darden for quite a few classes now. I even went on a trip with him to London over the summer. He's an amazing professor, and I try to take every class I can with him. He loves assigning papers to hear what you think and why rather than give "multiple guess" tests. He's not a harsh grader, just put in the effort and you will love him.

CrimJ1130 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Darden was wonderful to learn from, and his comments after online journal entries and essays was very helpful. The class conversations (on BB) are very interesting as well. He is very understanding of RL issues and of those with LD. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in corrections as starting point!

I took Professor Darden's course online and it was very manageable. There was one assignment due each week, which was plenty of time to complete it. He grades quickly and is an easy grader. Gives lots of time to take the tests which is very nice. Great teacher, highly recommend, will definitely take his online courses again!

Easily one of the best teachers at COD. He knows what he's doing and is very informative, due to his many years in Law Enforcement. If you do the work, pay attention in class, and go every day, it's an easy A. I've had him for CrimJ 1100 and 2410. I'm looking forward to taking another one of his classes.

Simply stated: if you are serious about criminal justice, this is the professor you need to have. His expectations were established right off the bat and he was clear as to what the class entailed. Learned alot and got an A. Fun guy, but don't cross him. I would definitely not want to be on his bad side.
