Opinion: 1300 - I'm giving you a very honest opinion of the class. If you're not a nursing major and this course is not required, do not take it. It's a lot of work and you need to push yourself to do well on every assignment. Dr. De Mesa has your best interest, kind, and a good teacher. I would just recommend you take every chance to go to SI sessions and do the OWL replacement. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1302 - This class is somewhat chill and straightforward. Mr.Sillars is very blunt on what he wants with each essay and prepares you through it. I will tell you that he is a tad of a tough grader but really does helps you become a better writer. I would recommend doing the rewrite of the essay if you do bad on one, and also going to office hours. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1306 - This course was helpful in teaching me how complex logic and philosophy is. Mrs. Paddock is a really straightforward teacher and does a good job of setting out her expectations are. I would recommend going to office hours if you have any struggle, she's always there to help. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3315 - This course is really interesting and honestly, Dr. Campbell teaches it in a way that you know he is passionate about the subject. His tests are gradually a huge percentage of your grade, but each test reflects his teaching. I would recommend doing packback question, reaching out, and doing everything extra credit opportunity he gives. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: Topics of Lit - All though she is a wonderful person and I felt like I genuinely learned from her class her final project was absurd. It was a new media project that required a ton of footage editing which she knew nothing about and gave us 2 weeks to do what surmounted to about 2 months of work. She did this because she didn't understand the software or time required for the project. She also gave us no definite structure for the project, she just said change the narrative. But then proceeded to grade the main project on opinion, and to top it all off we also had to write a 7-page paper. My group put in about 30 hours of work just to have her tell us she hated it. This hit really hard because we worked very hard on the project and we were proud of what we had. The class was fine up until that project. I believe she should do the project herself to gain a better understanding of what it was like to make the videos and write the essay. Maybe then she will also have a better understanding of what she wants out of it and can better explain it to her students. If you have experience with video editing or film you might be fine, but since the grading was mostly opinion I can't say for sure. If you want to learn about narrative perspective this is the class for you. I believe what I learned in this class will benefit me writing in the long run, but apparently won't do anything for my film skills. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: creative writng - I love Dr. Jortner she is an excellent professor. She was very supportive in our creative writing class and really pushed us out of our comfort zone. Though I do agree with others she can be passive aggressive and really wants everything done a certain way. But if you explain to her your creative voice or writing technique and give her a different perspective she can be more understanding with your writing. I also had her for brit lit and she just made the class really fun. I enjoy her not only as a person but as a professor as well. She's very supportive and at the end of creative writing was even encouraging us to publish our work, that's how much she believed in us. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 4426 - If you are thinking about taking Histology just to knock out an upper-level credit or you think it will be fun, try to find something easier. This class was by far my most time consuming upper-level bio class. However, if you have to take it and you want the A, I suggest dedicating like 2 hours before every lecture to thoroughly go over the material until you think you know everything, then another 2 hours afterwards to make your own study material, whether it be quizlet or a doc or a condensed powerpoint that makes sense to you (which I found to be most effective.) Then one more hour to go over material to memorize every detail before each QUIZ. For the test... pray. I liked to make practice tests for myself and go over my condensed powerpoints. Dr. Dean is a great prof so go in and see her as much as you can. This is a difficult class though, so buckle up. An A is possible if you keep a responsible schedule and don't mess up on the tests. But you will be proud to walk out with a B, and satisfied with a C if it so happens to go that way. No one gets through this class without tremendous effort. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: HIS 1307 - Everything he does and says seems to contribute to our learning. Even though the readings are oftentimes tedious, his lectures compliment it to further our understanding of the material. Also, answering those reading questions REALLY helps with understanding the material for the exams. He encourages participation, which is mostly welcome. His persistence to get new people to speak out has given me the courage to sometimes contribute to the class discussions. Dr Watkins almost always seems to have a positive energy about him and is usually open to help after class despite being a busy father of two young children, and I admire him greatly for it. The thing that probably contributes to my learning the most is when Dr Watkins often refers back to the material we went over in previous lectures through class or group discussions. It reinforces the material and also allows me to add more perspective onto previous material. It doesn't necessarily seem repetitive either since we are reviewing material, then tying it to other new material. It's a very satisfying way of learning. If you've skipped over everything, just know this: If you want to really learn something and take an engaging class, TAKE HIM. If you want a blow-off class, don't. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: BIO 1306 - Dr. Fernandez-Luna gets a bad rap for her accent and for her first semester teaching 1305, but for 1306 she was great. She made a serious effort to make the class as painless as possible, the only work outside of class was reading, and she is always very willing to discuss during office hours provided you are respectful. She's funny and she really cares about what she teaches but her tests are easy because she makes very clear what is important on her lecture slides by highlighting key ideas. I loved Dr. Fernandez, her class was my easiest all semester, and I would highly recommend her. - Grade In Class:A
