Opinion: 1405 - Dr. Allen is a great guy but not a great professor. I like that he is passionate about the material, but his teaching style is not engaging. He goes way too fast through information. I emailed him twice with no response, and went to his office during office hours and he was not there. He can be helpful if you track him down, but that is difficult to do. If you need a lab science credit, you're not a geology major, and you think this is "rocks for jocks", don't take Allen. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: 1206 - I had no idea I could enjoy theatre appreciation so much. He is engaging with students and easy to listen to. Every class is basically copying a powerpoint slide, but he is very interactive so it's not boring. He gives 9 chapter quizzes online that are straight from the book, so those are easy 100s. He gives one midterm and a final, both are easy if you simply pay attention in class. Also he loves Beyonce, so that's basically all you would need to know. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1350 - He randomly gives 10 quizzes over daily reading and drops 4. The tests (multiple choice) are consistent with the subjects he covers in class and the assigned readings. He assigns a 4 page research paper which counts for about 15% of the final grade. Overall, his teaching style is boring. He's not very helpful in office hours. If you can take another professor (Saddler, Moseman, etc.), do it. If not, just be prepared for a boring class that isn't super easy. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 1305 - Pieper is one of the best professors I have taken. He is engaging, helpful, and knowledgable. His lectures are easy to listen to. The tests are consistent with the lecture material. He gives three quizzes over assigned readings that are easy if you read. He also assigns three short essays that are fun if you enjoy social observation. He genuinely cares about the lives of his students. He encouraged me and was a major part of me changing my major. TAKE PIEPER!!! - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: MTH 1308 - Do not take this class if you are not good at math already. She is a nice woman, but I would have completely failed this class if it hadn't been for my SI. In class she doesn't always make sense and she speeds through chapters like nothing. She also loves to say how lazy she is and how she doesn't like to do the arithmetic on the board so "look in the book." I'm awful at math and I needed a teacher who would actually work everything out on the board and explain everything we needed to know for the test. She also is very against any kind of memorization, so when asked if we could put the steps of a problem up on the board so we could memorize them, she refused. Quizzes are simple - just do the homework and copy it. Tests were very difficult for me until I went to SI because I just wasn't actually learning anything. Again, if you want the teacher to teach you what you need to know and are not good at math, I would not recommend this professor. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 1401 - Professor King is very smart and clearly loves what she teaches. This class is not hard so do not worry. If you read the book, you will easily pass the test. If you don't, then chances are the test will be impossible. She can be a little passive aggressive in lab when you don't understand something, but overall she grades very easy. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1412 - ABSOLUTE WORST PROFESSOR DO NOT TAKE. You will think he is so funny the first couple of weeks, but trust me his jokes will get old fast when you realize how ridiculously impossible his class is. He gives about 3 hours of homework PER NIGHT. He wasted 100% of class time going over things that would never be tested. On top of being a very bad teacher, he was beyond rude. There were several occasions where he would specifically call out students and embarrass them in front of the class. His office hours consisted of being insulted when you were clearly there to try and resolve your problems in his class. I ended with a terrible grade in his class, but have an A this semester, so that should show how bad of a professor he is. 1412 is meant to be a difficult class, but this was absolutely unreasonable and a terrible experience overall - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: 3325 - Signed up for a BUBooks account just to lead people away from this man if at all possible. I've been a straight-A math student all throughout my career, put some careful consideration into these ratings, and thought I'd be getting a decent professor for what should've been an easy class. I was fooled. He is very cerebral and abstract with his lectures, offering little to no actual examples, which is crucial for math classes and particularly this course. The harshest grader I've ever experienced--you can arrive at the correct answer differently than the methods he teaches and he will count it all wrong. Partial credit is laughably (and sparingly) distributed. I had to reteach myself most sections from the textbook, which I've never really had to do before for a math class, because the man can lecture for 75 minutes without really saying a thing. This was an eye-opening lesson on just how much a professor can impact your understanding of the material (and consequently your grade) either for better or, in this case, for worse. Don't be fooled like I was by all the rave reviews--steer clear if at all possible. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: English 1302 - DO NOT TAKE HIM! The workload is easy, yes, but good lord he cannot teach and is the most random and tough grader I think i have ever had. I took him last semester, and here is what i wish i knew from these reviews: He does NOT prepare you for the next level of English you have to take. He also will absolutely waste your time, i ended up skipping the last 7 classes because it did not even matter. Please AVOID. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 2310 - He is one of the worst professors I have ever had. If I didn't have any background in Spanish, I would've gotten a "C" or failed this course. He is rude and disrespectful to students. He doesn't ever make his expectations of class/assignments clear and then gets mad when you do them incorrectly. Anything that we were tested on, I had to teach myself all of the information. He takes no class time to discuss the course material and instead discusses random topics in class. I do not think that he should be teaching at all, and I do not recommend that anyone take him. - Grade In Class:A
