I had him for the sports and culture freshman seminar. Stay away. He is a really cool person but if you would like to keep a nice GPA, do not take this class. You talk about the same thing often times and he grades hard. Like I say, really cool person but the class is not anything that anyone …more expected. less

It is really hard to get a good grade unless he really likes you. Extremely hard grader. Class is very repetitive. I got the impression that if you did not agree with his opinion he would think you were wrong.

Class was nothing close to what I expected. He was an extremely hard grader, would never explain assignments, and refused to take your opinion on anything. Out of two sections in Sports & Culture, only one person made an A. Great guy, horrible teacher.

If you want to keep a solid GPA don't take. Hard as hell, awesome guy like they said but tough grader, a lot of tedious class assignments and a presentation, paper and debate that were picked apart and they are most of your grade..

This class is the hardest class I have taken in college. I thought Sports and Culture would be easy but I was wrong. Though it was really difficult, it was also interesting. Ended up with an A, but if you don't work really hard, you will be lucky to leave with a C

Great class, extremely difficult paper. This was by far my hardest class so far in college. It wasn't what I expected at all, but I did learn a lot. Lots of research projects involved. Lots of work.

He's a cool guy but not the easy freshman seminar you are looking for. There are a few papers, a presentation, debate and one pretty hard paper at the end of semester. Follow the rubric exactly and back up your thoughts. Only a few people in his 20 yrs of teaching have gotten A's. Lots of class …more discussion so it's fun but not an easy A at all. less

I am a sports guru but the class makes sports not fun at all. If you are interested in sports do not take! Davies is an impossible grader and will kill your grade if you do not bust your butt on every assignment. He's an okay guy but not a very good teacher.

Dr. Davies is as vague as his assigments. He requires a lot of work for just a freshman seminar with little explaination on what he wants. Australian teaching Influences on US culture with sports focus?!? Can't follow at all. :(
