  • Class rating 4/5
    You definitely have to read the book in order to pass this class. Just, ok. He's really nothing special tbh. He does give ton of extra credit, but the only grades you get in his class are tests. If you're not a good test taker, you won't do good in this class. No homework, no quizzes. Just tests. You have 3 tests that u must take and the final is optional. ...Continue reading

    Watson is an awesome professor. I would not take this class if you do not like to read however. Reading the textbook is essential. I didn't read the book and definitely regretted it, but I really loved this class. He knows his stuff and makes sure you do too. Take him and you won't regret it! Yes, you do have to read and actually try but it's worth it. He gives TONS of extra credit opportunities to help you out. He's also hilarious which makes the class actually interesting. Just remember one thing, all things are complex. ...Continue reading

    Watson is ok. Make sure that you purchase the book and start reading the chapters when he tells you to . Each of the test contain at least 4-5 chapters worth of material, so it's a lot to cover. The final is option and he gives AT LEAST 20 points worth of extra credit (do it , it's easy). ...Continue reading

    ALL YOU DO IS READ!!! He gets off topic in lecture and complains the whole time. Your grade is just three tests and the final is optional. Be ready to constantly be reading and studying for you next test. He gives a lot of extra credit opportunities, though. ...Continue reading

    SHEENA! She is the coolest professor ever. She isn't someone who just wants you to regurgitate material she actually cares about your understanding. Sweet as can be with the mouth of a sailor, but it's hilarious. She's different than most professors because she actually speaks her mind. Really cares for students individually. Makes material fun! ...Continue reading

    Although I hate math, she was a great teacher. Make sure you go to class,do your time in a Math Lab and homework and you will easily pass this class. I ended up being exempt because she is such a great teacher!!! I highly recommend you take her class!! ...Continue reading

    She was alright. I suck at math but that doesn't really reflect her valor as a professor. The tests don't mimic or even remotely resemble the homework, but they are pretty similar to the quizzes. I failed every test but managed to a C. Make sure you pass all the quizzes, do the homework, and attend the hour at the Math Plaza and should be alright. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    No textbook, just readings for each class. The readings are not too bad and there is an extra credit quiz for each of them. The tests are hard, but since it is graded on a curve it is not too bad. If you stay on top of things and do the extra credit it is an easy class. ...Continue reading

    He's very old and isn't very clear with assignments. You never know what to study for the tests. Although he is a very sweet old man, he has no idea what is going on when it comes to computers. ...Continue reading

    Professor Atkinson genuinely cares about your success in her class, that is if you do the readings. DO NOT SPARKNOTE. I tried to spark note the first test and got a 27, I then had to work extremely hard to play catch up the rest of the semester. Do the readings, think out of the box on test essays. You will be fine. She either likes your essays or you need major work on it. Honestly, I'd recommend not taking her class. She's the hardest English teacher in UTC, in my opinion. If you want to be challenged, take her. But if you want an easy A, don't take her. You will not have an easy A. ...Continue reading

    Nice lady, but not always easy to understand. If you have no prior music experience, some listening exercises will kill you. She wrote the textbook, which makes her harder to understand because she isn't clear on anything. You have to pay to go to at least one professional orchestra concert. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    This is a wonderful class...Beware though if you are literally 8 points away from 490> what you need to get an A. .She will give you no pity nor accept re-do in assignments. Does not allow any extra credit and pray to Jesus you get a good group, everything is group work. ...Continue reading

    He loves to put people on the spot. He challenges you, and pushes you to your limits in writing... I hated english with a passion before. . but now I have honestly become 10x the writer that i was when i first walked into that classroom. He's a very rough grader, but you definitely get the grade you deserve. Take him if at all possible!! ...Continue reading

    He was okay. You write A LOT of papers and he grades them hard. Even if you fix everything he points out, he will still say you didn't. I wrote what he commented word for word on every paper and he still gave me a bad grade. He's a cool person and I like to talk to him, but I wouldn't take him again. ...Continue reading

    Awesome teacher to take for any class. Math in Modern World was hard at first because if you don't have a good foundation in Math, it will be a struggle. But luckily this professor was extremely helpful and knew what he was talking about. Online homework helps you learn a lot as well as the problems he goes over in class. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Lundgrin is so awesome. Very smart and well read. Very simple and extremely understanding. You will love it. she is very nice and is always willing to help you out.

It is mandatory to attend but he class isn't boring and like i said you will usually get to leave early. ...Continue reading

    The goal of any general education course is to spark interest in the field. I love art, but this professor is making me hate it. Her expectations for this 100 level class outweigh the expectations for most of my 300 levels in my major (Psychology). I highly recommend selecting a different professor or taking an alternate class. ...Continue reading

    Very easy. Did zero work in the class, hardly ever came, and didn't study for any of the test and made a C. Test are online. Kinda hard to understand so if you are weird and care about history and want to learn about it take someone else. Would recommend him for all the world civ classes! Awesome guy! ...Continue reading

    Lee is a nice guy. He is a very nice man and helpful if you ask, but he teaches chemistry like an upper level class.

    What I learned in highschool chemistry is the only reason did as well as I did. He really is. I enjoyed speaking with him one-on-one. However, I would not recommend for 1010. He complicates the material, and if you cannot teach yourself, do not take this class. The tests are not easy, but they are manageable if you STUDY. Take another prof if possible. If not, don't be freaked out- it's not THAT bad! ...Continue reading

I would definitely recommend her for Spanish 1010! ...Continue reading

AVOID!! ...Continue reading
