To put it simply, THE MAN. Awesome guy, awesome teacher, funny, easy to get along with, very lenient and flexible when it comes to turning in assignments. If you get anything below a B in his class it's because you are at fault and didn't try. TAKE HIM. Best class I had this semester.

Dowdy is AWESOME. He is so open and friendly and is down to talk about everything and anything. His class is easy for a writing class. Assigns papers and journals but has no due dates. Class is all discussion. I have never had a teacher as cool as him. I would take him again in a heartbeat and plan …more to. less

Biggest grades in the class were two research papers and class participation. Discussion class, not a lecture. Was not expecting to be graded as if I was in an English class. He was always ready with a counter-argument if he did not agree with what you were saying.

Discussion based class. For each class a new paper is due and a reading has been posted to be read. You really devote a lot of your time to writing and reading. I probably would not take his class again. I don't feel like I'm learning much of anything and it's taking a lot of time that I could be …more working on something more valuable to my future. less

Classes are discussion based, and if you dont talk he will. He is really intresting and willing to help you if you need it. Easy grader as long as you do what is expected. You have to do a few papers and responses to discussions or reading. Easy class!

Professor Dowdy is by far one of the most interesting people I've ever met. His class deals heavily with theories, specifically regarding controversial topics. The articles he assigns are difficult at first but get much better as the semester progresses. We watched Mean Girls and Fight Club, if …more that helps. Overall he teaches one heck of a class! less

Joseph Dowdy should be in the Dos Equis commercials with the stories he will tell. It's a great first year seminar class where there's about one or 2 articles he will give that challenge you to think but never over 3 pages. Is class is basically all about discussion so just have a view on a topic …more and say it in class and you'll have an A. less

I had Mr. Dowdy for The American Dream freshman seminar. There were lots of shorts responses to write, and a couple longer papers. The class was discussion based, and it was pretty chill. He is an interesting guy and shares many stories about his life. Overall, as long as you did the work and …more put a little effort into the class, its an easy A. less
