    Anyone taking physics at SUU is doing themselves a disservice if they don't take this class from Brandon. He makes learning fun and interesting. He knows people have other classes that they may prioritize more, so he tries to keep that in mind while still teaching the most important parts of the class. He does really cool demos almost everyday to demonstrate the concepts he is teaching and he always comes to class with a good sense of humor. Highly rec'd. ...Continue reading

    Professor Wiggins is the man. Though physics itself was hard & not an enjoyable subject, Wiggins made it much more tolerable & understandable. He made due dates & tests very doable. He understood how busy college students were & made sure to not drown us in misery. Homework about every night but only due once a week. Was great about outside help. Definitely one of the best professors on campus. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    I really felt like he made complex concepts easy to understand and work with. There are lots of demonstrations that make understanding easier. Homework is focused on what we talked about that day and it really helps solidify the knowledge necessary to do well in this course. However the homework does not go well with the lecture or prepare me well for the test. The homework is often very time consuming and seems pointless and unrelated to his tests and quizzes. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Wiggins is by far the best physics professor at SUU. He likes making lectures enjoyable by using humor throughout and by using interesting demos.

He is very fair and actually cares about his students' success. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    I really like Prof Wiggins. He still remembers the perspective of the students and because of that he is very relatable and understanding Andy realistic in his expectations. Funny. Constantly makes jokes and doesn't take himself too seriously. The course is still tough because the subject matter requires a lot of work. We have an object lesson everyday in class which usually involves combustion!! :) Our very first day, we were covering easy topics such as displacement. To teach this, he used analogies such as as hobbit traveling to Mordor. ...Continue reading

    He's a great professor, the lecture relates to the homework and he is accessible outside of class.

He makes sure you understand the material and grades fairly. His tests are easy. Weekly homework is good for studying. ...Continue reading

    Maybe my favorite professor at this college. He clearly cares about his students success as well as the course material. He is real with you about what matters long term and makes sure that you have the tools you need to do well in his class and on standardized exams. 10/10 He makes lecture fun and easy. Gives help on HW, gives practice tests before each test and makes the material, which could be difficult, very easy. There are daily homework and weekly quizzes, but these are not stressful at all. Wonderful professor! Take physics with Wiggins! ...Continue reading

AVOID her, unless your an athlete or a male because she caters to them. She is brilliant but has no interest in trying to share her knowledge. Instead she ridicules you for asking questions. She is also incredibly particular about her answers on exams, I swear there is not a correct enough answer. If your male or an athlete that you will be fine if not AVOID her. ...Continue reading
