I think she is new to teaching and it shows. She has a tendency to let students take the reigns of the class and oftentimes you will have one or two motor-mouths pontificating back and forth until you want to shove a pencil in your eye. Despite this I liked her because she was very nice, a fair …more grader, and presented the material in a concise way. less

She was a pretty good professor. She presents the material in a good enough way for you to understand what point she's trying to get through to you. The work load isn't too bad and the assignments are generally pretty easy and you feel like you really learned something. I definitely recommend her!

Take her for a higher level course so the non-philosophy-savvy students don't bring the class down for you. She's an amazing professor, a fair grader, will help you to understand exactly what shes looking for. Very interesting (often mindblowing) classes that she teaches. In 103 you dont really DO …more philosophy but you learn about certain phils ideas. less

Very inconsistent teaching and grading style. Randomly graded homework assignments, and gave seemingly arbitrary grades on certain assignments. I tend to think that she grades based on how much she likes you, or your attitude in class. If you're Christian, you'll do extra well. She's very …more condescending toward godless worldviews less

This class was decent. Doctor Sutton lectures most of the time but allows time for discussions as well. You will have a lot of reading hw, but they are short, and reading questions to do. The tests are somewhat challenging but you should be able to get a B. Just show up to class and take detailed …more notes and you'll be fine. Sutton knows her subject. less

She knows her stuff and you will learn if you come to class and take notes. The homework really isnt bad and she even gives you page numbers so you can find it easily in the text. i def recommend her. also if you raise your hand and say a few words in class, it goes a long way.

She's super helpful and objective in her teaching. Very friendly in and out of class. Your grades come from small homework assignments / quizzes, one paper, a midterm, and a final. She does not ask tricky questions; tests are clear and managable. Getting an A is not a problem. Hope to take from her …more in the future! less

I've always feared to take philosophy, thinking that it might be esoteric and too difficult to grasp, but Professor Sutton was crystal clear and made everything so interesting to learn. (attendance wasn't mandatory, but I have yet to miss a class)She's approachable, understanding, very intelligent …more and deeply inspiring. Would take again! less

Sutton is a great professor, obviously passionate and knowledgeable about the subject matter. I do wish she would go over the reading questions more, but that is perhaps a minor quibble. I would also like to note that her class isn't as easy as some people make it out to be. Definitely worth …more taking one of her classes before you graduate! less

Loved Professor Sutton. She is incredibly intelligent and capable of making a very difficult concept easy for students to build on and develop over the course of the semester. Her tests are not nearly as challenging as you anticipate and she is always willing to go over something you are not …more clear on. less
