ANTH 325 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He means well but is simply unenlightening, monotone, and uninteresting. Stay away from this professor if you want to enjoy college and not be bogged down by boredom and academic pointlessness.

ANTH325 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Aztec and Maya Class is so hard. after doing all of the readings and taking extensive notes I still bombed the tests. when i asked him what to change he told me to spend around 2 hours on each article he assigns on average. not cool. dont take this class.

GANTH205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Chamberlin is really nice, but his dialogue will put you to sleep every time. There is a good amount of reading in this class too (weekly article notes due). His tests come from the lecture, but you have to take good notes to do well on them. If I could go back and switch, I probably would. Having it at 930 AM doesn't help either.

ganth205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

nice guy but SO BORING! necessary to go to class to get notes, if not you're screwed for tests. no textbook, just have to read articles that really don't help that much. I would recommend you find a different professor.

GANTH205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class was so boring! I had this class at 8 in the morning and it was painful to try to stay awake through his class. Even though this class was very boring, I got an A because I went everyday and took really well written notes. Overall its an easy C but you have to work hard to get an A.

pretty dry and repeats large chunks of previous material at beginning of class, which is good for when you miss. really easy tests - if you get the notes.

very easy and interesting class. 2 article responses, 3 exams (not cumulative, multiple choice, short answer, and matching), some class participation (if you want to). I would definitely recommend this class.

Anth280 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

No attendance policy, but very beneficial to go to class. The class was a little harder than I thought it would be, but if you go to class and study for exams it's not that bad. Several easy article responses (to make sure you're reading), 3 exams (not cumulative), 1 film worksheet (shows a lot of films) makes up your grade.

good guy. very helpful and clear. lectures can get a little boring at times but if you go to class and take notes you'll def. get a good grade. class is generally interesting. he really knows his stuff and the films are really interesting as well. i definitely recommend him.
