    Montez is really clear about all assignments and isn't a super tough grader. Not only is he a cool dude but he makes learning about communications much more fun and interesting. He makes the class have an amazing atmosphere and always puts a smile on the classes face. I feel like he is a professor that will always listen and understand and is reasonable. TAKE MR MONTEZ! he is great. Not a lot of homework. Take his class if you have the opportunity ...Continue reading

    Biggers is awesome! She's always smiling and happy in the mornings. You can tell she really loves her students. Forewarning - She grades harder with each speech, but don't worry. She really helps students prepare. She is super fun and she cares a lot about her students. She makes you feel very welcomed and comfortable in the class and when giving a speech. Would definitely recommend her! ...Continue reading

    Miss Hensley is very witty and fun to talk to. Speeches in this class are graded fairly and she works hard to help you improve and increase your confidence. She's a bit of a tough grader but you can get around that by asking her for extra help/feedback. You'll become a better and more confident public speaker without even realizing it with her as your instructor. Her puns are pretty dorky and they're even worse at 8 am but it adds to her charm. ...Continue reading

    Katie is a fun, helpful, and friendly teacher. If topics are not that interesting, she knows how to keep students entertained while still making them learn.

    Took her for my Comm103 class (a general elective course) and felt that she was a very unfair grader. On our first intro speech she gave me and the 8 kids sitting around me D's on a very simple prompt. Went to her office hours and worked very hard the rest of the semester and only ended up with a C in the course. She alone brought down my whole gpa ...Continue reading

    If you took the liberal agenda and formed a person out of it, this would be that person. She forces gender and race into every single class conversation regardless of its relevance to the topic.
