Opinion: History 1305 - For a thorough and well-rounded understanding of class with Dr. Morera: Dr. Morera truly cares about his students, he cares about history, and he believes in growing his students to become better at what they do. I took Dr. Morera during the fall of my freshman year, and I highly recommend taking this course during the same time as Christian Scriptures. (Kind of a side note, but it was a neat and unexpected experience to learn about secular history and history surrounding the Bible in depth, as they wove together). As a professor, Dr. Morera is an invested communicator who teaches with jokes and interesting material. While he was a thorough grader, Dr. Morera’s heart toward his students is far from malicious. Many of the negative comments on this page stem from frustration over homework that required at times tedious attention, but they were not unbearable. In the homework that he gave, Dr. Morera’s goal was not to make his students’ lives difficult or prove to them their imperfections. He is an avid thinker who has received an excellent education, and wants to pass this on to his students. While his wife prepared for and underwent surgery at the end of my semester with him, Dr. Morera provided an alternate final that would take more time for him to grade than the original final would. He did not skimp on an opportunity to challenge us in our final, knowing that it would bring a burden to his holiday season. At the same time, Dr. Morera realized a large amount of negative and attacking comments on this site, and can view them still. Yet he is currently grading the essays that we wrote, knowing what was unfairly claimed about him. He is a good teacher with a good heart. Please view him with your discernment as you view these comments, and your grace. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3372 - Matt is a fantastic human being. Like, I love everybody in the Sociology department, but Matt has to be my favorite. He's super passionate about the subject of population health and he does an excellent job of keeping students interested and involved. He's also extremely personable and would love for any of his students to talk with him about anything they need to discuss—class related or personal life. Y'all have Spring 2018 before he has to leave. This man has made an incredible impact on my life, and I have learned so much from his class. If you have the chance to take this man, please do! You won't regret it! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ACC 2301 - Professor Beard is an amazing teacher. She is naturally gifted at explaining complex concepts in a way that makes sense to students. She is approachable and always made herself available to help. There was online homework and class participation points, which all help your grade if you just do them. I actually found myself nerding out in class because she made accounting interesting (which I did not expect at all). Professor Beard really cares about her students, take her if you can!! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: CSI 3334 - Data Structures with Aars wasn't too terrible. His projects were definitely doable if you started early (I got a 100 on the project grade), and he was always helpful when I went in and asked for advice if my program failed the upload site. He was a fairly relaxed grader, as he gave you a 100 automatically if you passed the robot test. However, the dude's teaching ability was really lacking. He would mess up trying to explain the algorithms, his lectures seemed unorganized, and a lot of time was wasted on stuff that really didn't seem to matter. I'd take him over Hammerly for this class if you want the better grade, but it's not that much better of an alternative. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: ENG 2301 - I have never had a teacher be more passionate about their subject than Professor Dickinson. He taught the historical context of every book we read, which was really interesting. I didn’t think I would get too much out of a mandatory brit lit course, but I actually found this course to be very rewarding. Professor Dickinson really cared that his students got something out of the texts. Great teacher, always available to meet with students. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: CSI 2334 - I like Fry as a person, not as a professor. She is the most strict grader out of all the profs I've had so far and the amount of workload this class offers is overwhelming at times. The project is not that bad if you know what tools to use, but is very unnecessary and time-consuming. Outside of class, she is very nice. In class, she likes to make it clear that she is the authoritative figure, talking down to some students and isn't afraid to tell you that she doesn't like your answer to a certain question. She definitely has her favorites, and how she selects them seems random. If any other professor teaches this course, I would take them instead. Professor Fry isn't the worst professor to take, but I definitely feel I deserve more than a C+ considering how much time and effort I put into studying and working on the programs. - Grade In Class:C+

Opinion: LF 1197 - I took Beginning Relaxation/Fitness with Professor Beattie last semester and it was the best decision. This course is essentially a beginner’s yoga class. I’m not going to lie, I think I had a bad taste in my mouth toward yoga after I went to this class that tried to make it a religious experience that made me feel uncomfortable. But Professor Beattie showed us how to use yoga techniques and poses in everyday life in a way that didn’t make it some weird spiritual thing. I genuinely felt more relaxed after this class (and I had the 8 am slot, so that’s saying something). You have to do one group presentation and there is a midterm and a final. I didn’t feel any stress over these assignments, Professor Beattie just wants to see that you are getting something from the class. This class made me pause and breath in the chaos and a times readjust my priorities to care about what really matters. Amazing class, amazing teacher!! Seriously take Professor Beattie is you can!! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1350 - Benesh is a sweet old lady. She hardly gives any homework, offers way too much extra credit, and her exams are fairly easy. Also about twice a month, she would buy bags of candy for the students to pass around during her lectures. She is passionate about the material and tries to make her lectures fun and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed her class and it was a great GPA booster. I never did a single page of the reading and still got an A-. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: CHE-2216 - Stephen is by far the worst professor I have had so far at Baylor. The workload for this class is unrealistic for a two hour course, and his monotonous tone makes paying attention in class difficult. The labs are graded on American Chemical Society standards and hard to get A's on, and the homework (webassign) is far too time consuming and unforgiving. Stephen has unrealistic expectations for his student's lab skill and knowledge of subject material, and the subject material is dense and boring. Just get through this course the best you can with this horrible professor. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: Greek 3 - Dr.Helkinlively is very nice and understanding! I did not have him for greek 1 and 2, but the transition was not hard. We had quizzes every Monday, and he ended up dropping a few. The exams were fair and he told you what to expect. If you work hard and work on the translations every night, you will do well. - Grade In Class:A
