Really frustrated with his cartography class. Even though he gives you rubric for map projects, my friends and I still can't get his expectation because grading is obscure. Long, redundant lecture, and the first midterm was extremely long with no accommodation for extra time.

Had him for Intro to Environmental. He was a very nice professor. Though his lectures can be quite boring and very repetitive, the content he teaches is not complex. Very approachable and very friendly. Very fair with his tests and he reviews in the classes before exams. Takes attendance randomly, …more but it doesn't make or break your grade. less

No homework, just lecture and powerpoint slides. I only used the textbook to study for midterms and exams. His powerpoint slides can get a little repetitive but overall easy GE class. He's super nice and very passionate about his job. As long as you show up for class most days and briefly study the …more day before a test, you'll pass. less

10 weekly discussion forums, 5 assignments- one every other week, 2 exams and a final. He grades a little hard, but he's pretty clear on what he wants so just follow his guidelines and you'll be fine. He responds to emails quickly so email him if you're unsure of something. The only downside to him …more is that he gives long, pointless, boring lectures. less

He lectures a lot and for the most part they feel repetitive and aimless. An easy GE class but i dont feel like i learned all that much.

Very repetitive and boring lectures. He was very passionate, but his teaching style was very boring and un-engaging. I ultimately don't feel like I learned anything from this class.
