Opinion: 3305 - This class is 100% doable. Rich is adorable and he’s a kind grader. I can’t recommend this class enough. It’s a relaxed environment and I became a better, more confident speaker because of this class. Rich splits the class into four different speaking groups, so you give a speech one day and the other three days, you listen to the other groups speak. Very low stress class. Highly recommend! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: BUS 3315 - DO NOT TAKE! She is the actual worst. In class she makes fun of students and picks on them. She doesn't respect other peoples beliefs. Expect countless worthless assignments online and huge in class projects that are due in an unreasonably short amount of time during the busiest weeks of the semester. She has multiple homework and projects due on the same day and when I asked for an extension possibly on just one since it was midterms week she laughed at me in front of the whole class. In addition her voice is so annoying. She thinks this is the most important class you'll ever take and thinks you should act the same. Just overall terrible. Take anybody else! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ENG 2301 - Prof. Anthony's British Literature class is not difficult, and it will be a breeze as long as you are familiar with the text, and study main themes of said texts very thoroughly. The choice of actually reading the texts or using SparkNotes is primarily up to you, I found both to be helpful (obviously reading in full will grant the best grade.) She is very nice and humorous at times, and class is not a drag as it may seem - it is mostly discussion-based and she encourages, but does not force, you to talk and express your ideas about the material. Testing strategy: The tests are mostly understanding the themes and plotlines of all the stories, so using SparkNotes/written notes to read up on all of the themes present helps. Exams are essay-based, meaning you will have to write about a story and/or compare two stories' themes. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Professor Anthony, as she makes a class that would sound painful and miserable into a class that makes you somewhat interested in older literature. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ENV 3314 - Dr. Ryan is quite possibly one of the greatest professors I've had in my transition from biochemistry b.s. into the environmental science b.s. He is an Australian professor (the accent keeps it interesting) and has an enormous amount of experience in the environmental health field (if you are interested in public health of env health, TALK TO HIM ABOUT INTERNSHIPS AND RESEARCH, HE HAS THE ABILITY TO HELP OUT.) His Tuesday and Thursday lectures are set for around 55 minutes, so you almost always leave early (as he believes you shouldn't be cooped up in a room for the maximum amount of time.) Lectures are primarily PowerPoint slides with him explaining everything in great detail, even emphasizing what will be on tests. Testing strategy is to study PowerPoint slides (which will always be on Canvas the day of lecture for that presentation) and to simply listen to him discuss it. The tests are just multiple choice questions that go over the material, and Dr. Ryan does a fantastic job at explaining everything to make sure you get an A on the test. Take this professor if you need your ENV 3314 (Intro to Environmental Health) course credit done. It will be well worth your time, and may even make a large impact of your future. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: BIO 1305 - Such an amazing prof. The class is challenging, but getting the grade you want is so doable. She posts her powerpoints, and the only grades in the class are the exam grades. There are clicker quizzes that can give you points added to your final exam which are really helpful. She also does random extra credit throughout the semester for little group projects and class participation.. all voluntary. She LOVES what she is teaching and genuinely wants her students to succeed. Would take her again if I could. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1301 - Dr. Boerm is awesome!! I had never taken a language class before and was the only freshman so I was very intimidated at first. I struggled at the beginning and he was so kind and pulled me aside and offered me help! He gives like one worksheet a week for homework and its so easy. There's a quiz every day but you don't know what day, so you have to look over the vocab every day. The tests are pretty easy. However, with each test you have to do a face-to-face oral exam. This can seem scary but is so helpful! Definitely take Dr. Boerm!! He wants you to succeed! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1302 - This lady is awesome!! She is so kind and fun. Very good at teaching, never wants you to be embarrassed. She had a lot of family stuff going on when I took her class, but she still made us feel important and did a great job teaching us despite all she had going on! There's one quiz a week that is fairly easy. There's online homework due every Friday, that isn't hard but it will take you a while to finish. The exams aren't too hard, if you study hard you will do well! Highly recommend! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1300 - TAKE DR.SMITH!!!! I cannot say enough good things about him. The class is so engaging and entertaining. He is quite a character so you're never bored. His exams are pretty difficult if you don't pay attention in class. There is NO work basically. He gives you 2 books throughout the semester and all you have to do is read it on your own time and write a paper on them. This guy is so funny and really wants you to succeed. I liked him so much that I took him again the next semester! I might even take him again next semester even though I don't need any more history credits! - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: BUS3315 - DO NOT TAKE DR. BURLESON. She is a very sweet lady but as all the other ratings have said, she is the most confusing professor I've ever taken. Very ironic considering she is a communications professor—such a bad communicator. Her canvas pages will send you from one link to the other back and forth making it impossible to find clear examples of what she wants. It is really sad as she tries to help but she just makes it worse! She will post long podcasts and you will be more confused. She left for 3 weeks in the spring and made us do a virtual team over spring break. Her assignments were so useless you'll have no motivation to do them. She gave us hard quizzes on very specific subjective writing tips from the book. Overall, the worst class I've ever taken at Baylor. Good thing Baylor made pass/fail available because of the pandemic cause this class would've ruined my 3.9 GPA. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1302 - I have never in my life enjoyed a spanish class until I took this one. Dr. Jones is everything you want in a professor. She knows what she's talking about, she is kind and understanding, and she makes learning spanish fun and practical. The assignments/workload is no more than the average spanish class, Vistas every other day a quiz over every chapter, but we did not take any large tests. By far my favorite class and favorite professor this semester. - Grade In Class:A
