GEOG2253M5114 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A
"Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This is a lecture based class, but you can print the notes he posts online with blanks. Very long winded. Was a interesting class. When I had to write any papers all he graded was the content, he didn't really care as much about the grammar. I enjoyed his class very much. He actually enjoys teaching and LOVES when you ask questions!!!

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

BEST TEACHER EVER! This is a difficult class that involves TONS of memorization, but he uses notes handouts for study tools and everything comes straight off of the notes. He's funny, easy to get along with, and knows a lot! It's hard, but definitely worth taking!

GEOG2253 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Great stories and pretty entertaining. Class is fairly easy and you don't have a book so everything is straight from notes and lectures. He loves talking about study abroad programs and has been to what seems like every country. When he talks about a region he usually has pictures of himself in these locations so it keeps you interested for sure.

I really enjoyed his class last semester. the stories always went along with what he was teaching and they really made the subject more interesting to me. I wish more professors had some real world experience so they could be more interesting. The notes are easy to follow if you go to class. If you spend some time studying them you'll do fine!

Class was a little difficult for me.. Hes a cool guy and loves to travel which you hear a lot about. Just study the notes on the slides and know your maps! Also you read a book that is actually good so dont worry about it. Funny Guy!

nice guy but his stroies go off track and get out of hand while he is teaching.Some stories do not even seem so true.Supposeldy he has been to college everyhwere.He is a married man with a young daughter but always comments about beautiful women he has seen.I just think thats a bit strange-runs slow on notes bc stories way too long.

Great teacher! Always had interesting facts and stories about the countries he had visited. There was no textbook, so there was no reading. Would take this class again! Very smart, funny, and awesome professor. :)

Geo1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had Professor Watkins for two classes. He really knows his stuff. I think the best part of the class was that what he talked about he had actually experienced it by being there. I really wish he taught more classes because I learned alot from him. His attendence is not mandatory but you will fall behind if you don't come.

Take this professor!!! The class is not easy, but he really makes you think about outside of America. He loves to talk about study abroad stuff... I really wish I would have paid attention more earlier in the semester. GO TO CLASS AND LISTEN TO WHAT THE MAN HAS TO SAY!!!

Watkins is a fantastic professor, he's a great advisor and loves what he teaches. It would be a great loss to NOC if he ever decided to leave. He teaches not only Geography but Political Science too. If you need an A take this professor!!!
