Media Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Highly recommended professor! He knows the material well and really enjoys teaching the class. Puts all notes on bridges in case you miss a class or just to study for exams because he goes through the material fast in class. You just have to pay attention, study, and participate in class, and you should have an excellent grade.

publi101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I really liked this Professor. He talked a lot about his own life during class which was no flattering but overall a good guy. Every class was about the same, he would present a powerpoint on the chapter then we would have a speech due soon after. I did well in this class and learned how to public speak.

Extremely easy professor.He absolutely HATES repeating himself though. Nice guy but I'd advise asking him any questions at all or he'll get mad.

COMM210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Easiest professor ever!! I had him for public speaking and he made it really easy. The speeches are wicked easy and he always gives out As. The class is boring, but because he goes through the power points so quickly we get out early every time. If you are afraid or terrible at public speaking, take Upson!

He's a really easy grader, and makes it really difficult to fail. You literally have to try to fail -- like never show up and refuse to do your speeches. He's really easy to get along with, and fun to talk to. He also makes fun of his balding and Paula Dean -- definitely a fun guy.

I'm terrible at public speaking, but I get A's on all of my speeches. He's really an easy grader and a cool guy. He's really into current events, and he'll love you if you talk politics with him. He is making public speaking bearable. Definately recommend.

He has a background that really gives him credibility in communications classes. He is really nice, and a very easy grader. He is funny and tries to get the class involved and if you do go ahead and have fun with your speeches then you will do well and everyone will enjoy the class more. Great teacher, super-highly recommended.

comm310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class is really easy and you don't really need to attend to pass (I didn't miss a class though). PowerPoints cover a lot of material but he tells us what slides to write down and he posts them online. His tests are 25 multiple choice (Super easy), final project is a pain but easy graded. He knows his stuff but sometimes the material is dull.

Although he can be condescending at times, he really is a great teacher. I was really scared to take speech but he made the class really fun and i didn't mind going to it at all. Definitely take him if you can!

Have had him twice and could write all the reasons to take him, but there isn't enough room. I highly recommend him for any communications class.

I took Speech with **** in a summer session. It was great. a speech every week, but that's about it. However, I think the curriculum for that class has changed, so if he gives more work than that, it's only because the school is making him. Overall a good guy with lots of good stories about his radio personality days.
