"Respected by students" "Big time extra credit" "Would take again"

Very good Prefessor and really knows his stuff. A lot of extra credit opportunities throughout the semester. Im currently in Sociology 101. There are no test in class except for the final. Bases grade off of quizzes taken online and participation. There are a few assignments here and there, but they are easy and he's goes over them in class.

Prew''s enthusiasm for the field translates into a class that was not only informative and laid the foundation for understanding sociology but also inspired me to declare sociology as my major.

Instead of Introduction to Sociology, Prew should rename this class Introduction to Liberalism. If you're liberal you'll love this guy, but if you're conservative it sucks to attend class.

Great person. Great professor. Will break his back to help his students. His opinions may be a little out there but he is one of the smartest guys around. Just do your work and you'll get an A.

He's a very honest guy and is not embarrassed to do silly things in front of everyone. First thing that he teaches is the sociological imagination. If you understand this concept, you can pretty much take all of his curved multiple choice exams and get an A.

Paul Prew is my favorite person ever. So excited and well educated about Sociology,he explains concepts so well and really opened my eyes to issues and sociology in general. He's willing to do anything for his students, as well. The readings are interesting and eye opening, especailly when compared to Psych theory. LOVE Paul!

Very helpful and understanding. Uses powerpoint, class discussions/interactions, visual examples and videos for class and makes what you're learning clear. Answers any questions. Very open-minded and I learned tons from this class!

One of my two favorite professors so far! Some say he's very liberal, but as an independent, I strongly believe he tells it exactly how it is. He explains concepts extremely well and is always willing to work with you in order to obtain the grade you want!

Soc101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

When I signed up for his Sociology 101 class I must have missed the subtitle "The Liberal Manifesto". Don't get me wrong I have nothing wrong with liberal people, but I didn't sign up to get preached at. A few tips for the class: if you ever are asked a question and given the opportunity to blame white people, men, or corporations, go with that.

SOC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I wish i leaned as much about Sociology as i did about Liberal Politics. Prew is a nice guy and easy to understand but some of his theories are so extreme and bias. Here's some advice for his test. If there's ever an answer that blames either Whites, Republicans, or America, its probably the right one. And dont buy all the books, you only use his.

Prew is agreat professor. He is easy to listen too, brings up interesting topics, and is very willing to help. There are many extra credit options and the material is easy to understand and stuff most already know. Great as a gen ed. Definetly a breeze.

How open-minded you are to politics will definitely define how you like this class. I found it very enlightening and interesting. Definitely my favorite class and favorite professor. He is very down to Earth and enjoys making jokes. If you keep yourself open to new and controversial ideas, you will excel in this class.

Unfortunately, Professor Prew teaches liberal politics and not sociology. Prepare to regurgitate his viewpoints on assignments and tests, even if they are more opinion than fact. Very easy class. Professors should teach their own subjects and not use the podium to espouse their political viewpoints.

Very passionate about his job. People claim he is left-wing biased but if you keep an open mind, you'll find that he cares more about exposing the injustices that surround us than pushing views on anyone. You have to understand that he takes a sociological approach, and it is hard to do that and not lean towards the left (at least in my opinion).

Awesome guy. Probably my favorite professor yet. Cool dude. Really easy class too. Lots of extra credit. Overall easy class in general. He likes to say "yeah....yep" (mostly when people are asking questions)a lot. Haha. He's also really funny.

This class was unbelievably easy. I found it ironic that he showed a movie about the fleecing of todays youth and was up in arms about how kids can just sleepwalk their way through college with passing grades & very little effort because the professors don't challenge them-but he is totally that guy!!!Unreal.
