PSYCH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Genuinely nice professor that really wants you to enjoy class and get a good grade. Classes are sometimes boring but in order to get good grades on your exam, READ the material she assigns. Be prepared for a heavy course load of reading. If you do that, you will be in good shape. Also provides extra credit opportunities.

Psych100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Packard is a sweet older woman who is very knowledgable but not the best professor. Her classes are small and EXTREMELY boring, but attendance is mandatory. The tests are easy, just study the review sheet given and skim the chapters. I wouldn't recommend her, all she does is talk at the class.

PSYCH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

SUCH a sweet lady. class is mandatory and worth a great deal of your final grade. exams are easy, right from the book. lectures are boring since she tends to ramble and can't work a computer for presentations, but theyre straightforward. if you're in a small class she has you write a research paper. overall great class!

PSYCH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very clearly defined class. If you are motivated you will do well. The content is not interesting, as per intro courses, and neither is Dr. Packard. However she makes requirements very clear and if you're simply looking to fulfill a requirement she is a very reliable professor. You will learn what you need. Be prepared for a textbook-heavy course.

She is a very sweet lady, and she is pretty easy. DO NOT TAKE RAP CLASS WITH HER. If your class is small switch out immediately, because she will make you do a research paper. You are better off taking a big psych class that doesn't require work.

PYSCH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She's a very sweet woman. Attendance is 20% of the grade so you have to go to class, but you do not have to pay attention at all. Her tests come from the publisher and are right out of the book. You have to read the chapters to get a decent grades on the tests, but if you do that youre fine.

Such a sweet professor! Lecture will put you to sleep because you just listen to her talk. Reading the textbook is a must and if you do you'll ace the tests. The tests are straight forward and not cumulative. Decent Gen Ed.

PSYCH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Easy class. Takes attendance once a week. Sweet Grandma-like woman, reasonable and not that hard to do well in but the classes are pretty slow and boring and you do need to study for tests.

she was a very nice lady. you do have to go to class, and she can sometimes ramble or just seem uninteresting but its psych so its really not too bad. the exams are easy. as long as you went to lecture and took notes on key things in the book youre good
