History 41 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's such a sweet professor; I loved his lectures, and his lectures are really luring. He didn't even take attendance but I went to his lectures out of pure interest, I just wanted to see what he'll lecture about next! He really cares, and he should not be taken for granted, you'll love him!

HIST 12 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

This class had two papers and two tests. The midterm is very tricky. It's multiple choice, but the answers can be hard to figure out, because they are sometimes similar. The final is super easy if you study, and the papers are also very easy.

HIST 41 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Professor Bolleli pushes us hard to learn about Native American History. He awakens an enlightens us with the way he teaches Native American History. I wish the history teachers I had in elementary school, middle school, and high school would teach like dedicated Professor Bolleli!

History 41 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

It was a good class. It was heavy material, but he managed to make the class more interesting than it was depressing. The assignments were time-consuming but not boring at all. I'd recommend him

Chill guy. Chill is definitely the word to describe him. Has a way of making history come to life. Midterm is by far the trickiest part of the class. With that said the rest of the class is easy if you hold up your end of the deal. Midterm, Final, 2 essays. The final is crazy simple. He gives you the questions beforehand!

He is a brilliant lecturer who can make history come alive. Great sense of humor and very helpful. The multiple choice midterm is brutal, but the paper and short answers final are much better. I had lots of fun in his class and I hope to take another soon.

HIST 41 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Class consists of only three things--a VERY tough midterm, a 6 page paper, and a final. No homework or attendance. His lectures are dry, and only writes a few things on the board. Notes are self-dependent and tough since you have to listen to his thick accent. Be sure to read the book for the final. Overall, would avoid if you could.

It was a fun class. Has a semi-thick accent but I always understood what he was saying. Straight forward, 2 exams, 1 paper. Attendance not mandatory, but I went anyways because I liked the class. Would recommend to everyone interested in the subject

Great lectures, nice prof who is very accessible. Not much reading, just notes on lectures and then 2 essay exams (midterm and final). He gives you list of about 25 essay topics to study/memorize, then for exam he will choose approx 10 to assign on day of exam. Only other assignment is a paper answering approx 6 essay questions. Fair grader.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. He is seriously the Zen master. Very insightful, entertaining & most of all very knowledgeable. I enjoyed showing up to class because I knew everyone was having a good time in there. He cracks jokes, curses & may even show off his martial art skills. Subscribe to his podcasts, show up to class & just LISTEN UP

Amazing. So interesting and I looked forward to every class. Like the reviewer before said, his wife had just passed away the week school started. He's a wonderful person, a great teacher and so interesting. His midterm is a killer but the paper and final he grades easily.

This professor is amazing. His wife died the first week of class, but he came almost every day and with such great, upbeat spirits. Even though we covered each religion briefly, I came out of the class having learned so much, and it's hard to even tell that we spent such a short time on each religion! If you like history, take this professor!

He is an extraordinarily amazing professor. One of my favorites at SMC. His lectures are very engaging and he finds a way to make them directly relevant to you. The midterm was multiple choice, and not that difficult. The essay and final were relatively easy. He gives you the exact questions he's going to put on the final, so it's not that bad.
