She was such a delightful professor my freshman year. Despite what the comments say on here, she's one of the nicest, most lenient, and understanding professors. As long as you do the work, and are a great writer, you're almost guaranteed an A!

Bixler is a great teacher. No, she won't just hand you A's, you have to work for them! But the work isn't that hard, and she's always there to help. Take your paper to her to revise before turning it in and almost guaranteed an A. She's fun to have as a prof. Lots of collaborative work and always have time to work in class! Lenient prof.

Prof. Bixler is a beast I totally loved her class and her style. She encourages independent thinking and self actualization, but is willing to help you out whenever you need it. (Even gives extra credit for going to see her). Ignore what the haters have said about Prof. Bixler, if you go to class opened minded and ready to learn, you will do fine.

She was a very good teacher. Don't take the class expecting to have no work, but it really is not all that hard a majority of the time. and if you have a problem, she will definitely help you understand it.

I can't believe all the negative comments about her. She posted handouts for everything. I learned a lot about real writing rather than writing about Shakespeare. Take her if you want to learn. She also looked over my papers during office hours.

Engl202D Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is nice, and in a matter of 10 seconds she can be downright rude. Uses the textbook for the first couple of weeks then never again. Expects you to know how to write documents with little to no instruction. Always will give you extra time to finish projects. I always got A's in english till this class I got a B. Take her if you must...

ENGL015 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Never take this teacher. Extremely unreasonable grader. I took all AP English classes in high school but find myself with less than a 'B'. She's the type of teacher that will give everyone in the class a 'D' on the paper, but refuses to tell you what you got wrong. She'll just write a big X over paragraphs. Do not take! Trust me!

ENGL015 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is funny at some times but mean at others. The class depends on her mood and if she feels like being nice. If she is in a bad mood stay out of her way. Not a tough class but assignments are poorly explained by the professor allowing students to receive bad grades

Do not take her... Does not explain how she wants the papers done. Her grading is not ocnstant at all. You have to write at least 30 papers overall. I think she forgets that we still have other classes than her class. Avoid her if possible
