Opinion: ANT 1305 - Carol is a sweet, friendly, and fun professor! She clearly loves anthropology and makes her lectures interesting and relatable! Her class is purely lecture-based with four tests, so if you read the assigned chapters and articles and go to class (she DOES take attendance) you should do well. (Bonus tip: sit in the front and talk to her often--otherwise she will not remember your name!!!) - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: HIS 2365 - Dr. Poor is extremely passionate about History!! She cares for every student and is always there to help. This course is a pretty heavy workload. You have five homework assignments that take some time, random reading quizzes, three papers and a midterm and final. As long as you take REALLY detailed notes and pay attention then you should be fine for the tests. TAKE HER - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: History - I took Dr. Morera a couple years ago for a history elective for my BBA curriculum. After completing my degree at Baylor, I felt it necessary to leave a review for my absolute favorite teacher on campus. Dr. Morera teaches with so much passion you cannot help but be interested in the subject matter, if solely only because his interest in it is so radiant. On top of that, the assignments are not over the top and the tests are graded very fairly. You will do well in this course if you care even a little, and will excel if you also enjoy history. In short, you'd be mistaken to take any other history professor if you can help it. And personally I think his < 70 rating is a joke that shows most students, like myself, that enjoyed his class didn't think to write a review for it. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: HEB 1301/1302 - Dr. Fulton is a great professor. She knows a lot of fun and interesting things about Hebrew and the Bible. She is nice but expects you to do the work. You will not do well in this class if you don't study the vocab and charts. Dr. Fulton does take attendance and grades participation by volunteering the answers to homework translations, so speaking up (even if you got the wrong answer) is the best way to make her like you. She is also a stickler on reading properly, so at some point you will have to do an oral exam reading aloud in Hebrew for her. This will not be scary if you give yourself ample time to practice. I highly recommend Dr. Fulton for first-year Hebrew, she is definitely one of the easier and nicer Hebrew profs. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: REL 1310 - Dr. King (Professor when I had him) is a very nice guy but can be kind of boring in class--would not recommend choosing an 8 am with him. The homework is mostly reading to prepare for lectures in class, and he usually had a quiz each day. The quizzes were hard if you did not do the reading well. The tests were much easier and he usually threw out a couple questions. He is very helpful in office hours. Overall, meh, but if you make the effort to get to know him he will like you and be nice to you. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: GTX 2301 - This class in general is very difficult, but Dr. McCune made it slightly better. She is friendly and kind of nerdy in a nice way. The class is very demanding, almost 100 pages of reading a night, and completely discussion based--but no way to get around that if you are Uschol. There are also two papers, a mid-term, and a final. You will have to read the papers out loud to her in her office, and she grades them in front of you. The grading will probably be at least 5-10% lower than you think you should have gotten (was given an A- and B+ on my papers). But she is a nicer grader than some of the other professors, and you will do better if you come see her during office hours for help on your papers. If you like Roman history and the Aeneid, Dr. McCune is your girl for Ancient Great Texts. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: REL 1350 - I took the Honors College section of this course. Most of the reviews below are true- Dr. Tran is hilarious and very invested in his students thinking critically and intellectually about various issues the Christian church has faced through the centuries. However, structure is not his strong point. Although I really wanted to engage in discussion, I did get a little bored with the weekly rehash of themes. I liked the readings, they were not difficult at all, but the test/quiz things were weird and I could not figure out what he wanted until I just started restating basically what he argued in class. As a result, I was disappointed that it seemed like he wanted us to admit his view was right even though he told us to think for ourselves. And as a white girl, I did feel a bit like I was being targeted or blamed for the world's problems. Dr. Tran says what he feels like saying because he is "a minority with tenure" (his words, not mine) so he can be both uproariously funny and a little shocking. Like others have said, if you are easily offended or don't want to think, this class is not for you. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1305 - She's a great professor and extremely nice!! She does go a couple minutes over time though, so if you're headed across campus, you have to pretty much speedwalk. Go to class and buy the book (she's okay with the 14th edition)because the test questions come from mainly her lectures and sometimes the book. She offers extra credit readings, and they show up as multiple choice questions at the end of the test. The grade is made up of 4 tests, no other homework, and the final is not cumulative. If you go in and talk about the test, she might give you points back. It's a super easy class and would totally recommend her!! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1322 and 2321 - Ms. Elliott is a grad student that is very helpful when you ask her questions. She may not explain some of the difficult material clearly the first time, but she always is willing to explain again until you understand. Ask questions in class, attend office hours, or schedule an appointment with her! She has a strict no electronics and no disruptions policy while she's lecturing. Approximately 15 homework problems were collected every week for a grade. Problems were not easy, but that will be true no matter the professor. Tests were mostly straightforward if you understood the homework and class examples. She awarded partial credit on all test problems that were at least started correctly. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: 1302 - Dr. Herrera is an amazing professor that truly cares about his students. He's a young Baylor grad who understands and emphasizes real world engineering applications. Herrera works at the BRIC, but he came to campus to hold office hours and help sessions that generally lasted a few hours (he won't leave until you grasp the concept or have finished the assignment). He had occasional reading quizzes, which were guaranteed 100's if you did them. His homework could be somewhat lengthy, but he was willing to help work through problems during class, after class, or during office hours. Tests were a thorough test of your understanding of the material. Though difficult, the tests were very doable if you understood the concepts and didn't have someone else do your homework for you. I loved Dr. Herrera and would definitely recommend him! - Grade In Class:A
