Opinion: 1321 - Dr. Fier's class was literally impossible, I had taken Calculus before but this was nothing like it. He was always available for office hours but it barely helped, I even went to SI almost every week, and that only helped me pass the class. I don't recommend him for Calculus 1321. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: Cases - Least favorite class I've ever taken. Jason is one of those professors who thinks the world revolves around his class, like we should live and breathe accounting memos. He says each memo should have 15-25 drafts and take 10-15 hours to write but then assigns 7 memos due within two weeks. He's also impossible to figure out. One day he prefers paraphrasing, the next he criticizes you for not quoting directly. He'll say something in class like "this is a great way to start out your memo" and then takes points off for doing what he said. His feedback isn't constructive, it's just mean. I had a 4.0 in college until this class. Avoid at all costs, he's not a professor you want to deal with and honestly just isn't that great of a person. Don't be fooled by the other reviews. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: BUS 3315 - For starters, let me just say that the class itself is one of the stupidest classes I've had to take so it deserves a portion of this bad review. The main concept of the class is how to politely send messages to co-workers. During the semester there are 3-4 assignments with hundreds of questions that teach you how to capitalize, use commas, and find nouns/verbs. Now, I have a friend who teaches 4th graders and they would be able to these assignments and this is an upper level business course. As far as her teaching goes, I'm doing it all online and as other comments have stated, she is unorganized and terrible at communicating. Her canvas page has you jumping all over just to turn in your sign up. She also teaches us as if we're 2 and 1/2. If she would just give clear directions, she wouldn't have to talk to us like children in her online lectures. All in all, if you unfortunately have to take this class, take someone else. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: BIO 4304/Med Ent - Dr. Pitts is an engaging professor and for a class about insects makes it fairly interesting. There were four exams, but the final seemed extremely difficult. Each week all you have to do is take a quick 5 question quiz which are not hard, just to make sure you read/paid attention. Finally, there is a major paper you have to write, but it's in sections and he gives you comments to correct before the final paper. I enjoyed the class and would recommend it but be aware it is a 93 and above A with A- for >90 but <93. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: CHE 4341 - Dr Lahousse is great for Biochem. Her class is lectures and then exams are pretty much 50/50 on multiple choice and free response. Dr. Lahousse has pretty much weekly canvas homework, but you get three tries on it and can see which ones you got wrong. Plus, if you do it early enough Dr. Lahousse is open to helping. Exams were curved depending on how well we did or if there was extra credit questions or not. There are also small in class quizzes (5 questions or less) every two weeks or so, just to make sure your up to date on material. Overall, the class is very doable and I enjoyed Dr Lahousse. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: REL 3319 - Dr Novakovic for Interpreting the New Testament is not the way to go if you have other options for religion classes. This is not getting to read the NT and try to interpret it rather learning all the methods of interpretations with barely interactions with scripture. She teaches exactly from powerpoints which is ok, but my concern comes with the work. The midterm and final were very specific questions and with not a lot of time (55 min for 50 multiple choice and three short answer for midterm). The paper (around 6000 words) was even worse. She gave us very little detail on the specifics of what an exegesis paper just quick updates at the end of class and then expected us to write at a high level. She does the exegesis paper in parts and then will add thirty comments on your work for that small section which at times do not seem kind. I know this is across the board as many students in the class I was in mentioned the same thing.The final nail in the coffin were reading quizzes in which she would email us the day of at 8pm that we have and we had to finish it by midnight, which is intention to make sure we read (and check emails). Overall I got an A- (93 is an A [Don't know how you'd get an A]), but I had to work way too hard compared to every other religion class. I would recommend finding another professor if there is another who teaches interpreting the NT or take interpreting the OT instead though I don't know who teaches it. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3325 - Relieved to hear Robert King is considering going back to the private sector. No teaching skills whatsoever. He has the attention span of a middle schooler. Gets off topic easily. His class is synonymous with ambiguity. In his own words "teaching is a popularity game." He is very aware of his flaws and will give out extra credit like candy. He allows a half-page cheat sheet. - Grade In Class:D

Opinion: FDM 1301 - IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS MAJOR READ THIS REVIEW!!! Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT take this class. I took it and was revolted and practically offended whenever I walked into his classroom. I honestly don't feel like he cared about his job or students. The whole class is just busy work with two ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE tests. I am a hard-working good student and did not do well on his exams. If you are a freshman business student do yourself a favor and take something like the intro to the theater to fulfill this credit. This class will drag down your GPA for nothing. But if you end up having to take it make sure to review all of the silly video clips before exams because he will have screenshots of video clips and ask weird questions about them. Oh, and the two tests are over 100 questions long. Everyone I sat next to was scared of him and dreaded the class, definitely do not take it. Trust me, you will thank me later. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: REL 1350 - Praise GOD for KEVIN! He is seriously the best!! Many people have terrible experiences in Christain Scriptures but with Kevin, it is a blast! You just have 12 quizzes, 3 tests, and one written assignment. You take all of the quizzes and tests on your own time with no lockdown browser. Which is a dream! It was slightly boring but it is nice because he does not make you interact (no cold calls) if you don't want to, he is a chill, nice guy. WOULD 100% RECOMMEND IT! He is even kind of funny, definitely laughed at least once every class. Seriously take him, I believe everyone can get an A! - Grade In Class:A
