Professor Cato is a very good teacher. He gives students a lot of chance to do speeches which is what I like. Surprisingly, I got a A-. I learned a lot from him. Highly recommend him.

COMM45 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I found Prof. Cato extremely helpful especially with the Thesis being he is a stickler about this. He practically hand fed us the information and assignments during this intersession class. He broke everything down to the LCD. I feel I learned a fair amount of info to help me in the near future. I would definitely take Prof. Cato again if needed.

COMM40 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Literally the worst professor I've ever had by FAR. Unorganized, interrupts speeches constantly, grammatical/spelling errors all over anything he hands out, doesn't stick to what he says in class in terms of due dates or grading criteria, arrogant, rude, waste of time to listen to... do yourself a favor and don't take his classes.

Commu103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Excellent dedicated instructor to his profession and subject matter. Critcal of sloppily prepared work. A perfectionist and he expects a student to do their personal best. He imparts skills that will last a lifetime.

A difficult professor, but an excellent one. Has years of experience; uses his own book for the course; a stickler on thesis statement. Personally, I found Professor Cato to be very well organized and sticks to his syllabus. If you are willing to do the required work you will get an A...He grades fair and gives you what you have earned.

A terrible teacher. He has trouble explaining the simplest idea. He is extremely unorganized. One of the worst teachers I've ever had.

Comm001A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Cato is cool. The class is more about content than the actual speeches. He's a nice man and is willing to work with students to get the work done. If you don't want to do any work, don't take the class. If you're a hard working student who does the work...you'll get an A. I like him and recommend him.

COMM5 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

A very unorganized teacher. Not difficult to get an A or B if you do all the work. Lots of essays for a speech class. Overall: a mediocre teacher who seems like he just started teaching even though he's been doing it for a long time.

Speech 1A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you like a teacher that favors African-American students, you are in! He definitely has his favorites, which makes the class somewhat annoying. He is very unorganized in regards to scheduling speeches too.
