Opinion: ECO2307 - This guy is a pain to sit through. No need to take notes because he just writes the book on the board. You are better off bringing the study guides and trying to answer those each class. I meant to take a video of him everyday when he says "goodmorning" and make a compilation but never did. He is also not personable at all. I was talking to him after class and he ended up turning off the light of the classroom and walking away as we were talking! I was chasing him and talking to him and he just dipped. NOT COOL SSOZI - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: ACC 2304 - She is very nice and knows what she is talking about, but I was not a fan of the reverse teaching style. Be prepared for A LOT of assignments. You are supposed to fill out these class outlines and then she asks you about them during class. I ended up never doing them and then only did it when I knew she would call on me. It also felt like she was pulling teeth to get an answer from the class. Nobody wanted to answer, felt kind of bad. Tests aren't terrible because she tells you the free response before hand. Also the departmental final is a lot easier than the exams. If you get stuck with her, you aren't doomed, but there is written hw once a week and online as well as class preps for each class. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: MKT 3305 - Honestly, I don't know why she has such a bad rating. Dr David is a nice lady and will put in the effort to help you IF YOU ASK, she's not going to go out of her way if you don't show you're willing to put in the effort. The re-vamped project is not hard, it's a marketing simulation that is online and almost 100% in class. The online quizzes are straight out of quizlet and the notes- you don't need the book. I didn't think the tests were bad but you do actually have to study a decent amount, there are a few obscure questions but usually, she ends up throwing them out. The final is easy, she definitely doesn't deserve this rating. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ACC 2301 - Dan is honestly the best, a super nice guy and a good teacher. I made a B in this class but not because of him- it was because of the new online formatting. Accounting is hard and not intuitive, so I had a hard time picking it up. It's nice because the final is optional, and there's an 8% bump on the homework. If you struggle in the class as I did, you can use your notes on the tests and accept a B in the class. It's not ideal, but if you're liberal arts and need an out it's nice to have. Overall Dan does the best with what the department gives him. I think he'd have more A's if he was able to teach both sections, but that's not his fault. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: 3376 - I won't lie I feel like this course is a waste of time. A lot of the information is outdated (a theme in the department in general) and honestly just boring. It's not Maxey that made this class un-enjoyable, he's a nice guy and cares about the class, but it's just an outdated course. The only frustration I had was that assignment definitions could be vague. The good news is this class is easy and if you don't make an A it's nobody's fault but your own. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 3325 - This class is a lot, I won't lie, but I don't regret taking it. Owens is a little disorganized from a teaching perspective, and I think my biggest complaint is that he gives vague outlines he gives for assignments and then grades harshly. However, you do get to "box" (it's just his word for re-do idk why he calls it a box) most assignments for full credit. I feel like I learned more from this class than any other class I've taken, but it was because I bought in and made the most of the opportunity. Owens has favorites, but all it takes to be a favorite is HARD WORK and actually caring about the class. He's actually a super nice guy, go into his office hours (which are super frequent and convenient)and ask for help and you'll get it. The final project is a lot but also amazing for your resume. Show him as many drafts of it as possible. All in all this class will kick your butt, but it'll be worth it. Don't get caught up in frustration and ask for help when you need it. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: BUS 1201 - Professor Mencken is so sweet and her class was always really entertaining. Between the lecture days and speakers I think it was a good mixture of information and was overall really helpful. She does assign online HW but those are super easy in my opinion. I would recommend studying your homework for the exam though because she does sometimes pull from the homework questions. She only gives 3 exams so be sure to do well on them and do the extra credit she offers because that will give you a good bump as well. Her exams were all multiple choice and stuck to what we learned in lecture and what it is in the book. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: CSS 1302 - Professor Russell is a great professor. Her class was always super productive and she made the material easy to learn. I wouldn't say don't listen to the other reviews because there is quite a bit of work that goes into this class BUT I believe all the work she makes us do is to help prepare us for our speeches. There are 5 different speeches, online assignments/hw whose answers come straight from the textbook, participation/attendance grade, and a final. this past semester she offered 2 extra credit opportunities so make sure to take advantage of that and do them! Overall, I learned a lot from this class and she is definitely one of my favorite professors on campus! - Grade In Class:A
