    I would highly recommend taking this professor. I had to take this class for grade forgiveness with an awful professor, and she went out of her way to help me. The class was full, but she happily overrode it for me. She makes philosophy relate to everyday life which really helps. Easy A if you do what you're supposed to. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    very detailed oriented class attendance and PARTICIPATION are 30% of your grade. She makes you participate and gives extra points at the end of the semester for participation. If you do the reading (which isn't a lot) you'll do well on the quizzes which are only 5 questions. She makes the class interesting and understandable. She's definitely my favorite teacher so far. tests are common sense mainly with some facts you have to know from the notes. dont really need to read. make sure you staple your paper before handing it in!! ...Continue reading

    This class is really interesting, attendance is a grade and extra credit, also she does offer participation as extra credit. She really cares about the subject and it comes out in her lectures. I had no desire for this class before it started, but she changed my mind and I really enjoyed it. The work is not hard, and she really explains it. You must participate in class, but she makes it fun. w ...Continue reading

    Bristow is an easy A. 3 tests and 3 HW grades basically make up your grade, so make it all count. Extra credit for attending classes. No quizzes. Requires discussion in her class, if it isn't talkative...she'll threaten quizzes, but never gives em. Only 2 papers, but given the option to make the grade from the first paper carry over to the second...so if you do well on the first paper, you don't have to write a second! Take her ...Continue reading

    Easy enough class if you attend. Journals and participation is what will help you to pass this class.test are directly related to the class no trick questions and if you just review the review sheet you got an A on the test I knew nothing about philosophy and thought it would be a horrible class. After the class, I love it and want to take more. She makes sure that you understand the material and is very clear about her expectations! Follow them and you get an A. It would be very hard to fail this class. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She has a very long syllabus with everything you need to know, and she is good about using blackboard for ODU. Homework assignments are CRAZY hard. Take this class only if you want to do A LOT of work. I thought it was way too much for a one hundred level class. This class was my most intensive one of the whole semester, hated it. She is very easy to understand, and if you study, her tests are very straightforward. She lists all the requirements of her class and sticks to them. She is always willing to help her students. Highly recommended! :) ...Continue reading

    You will learn a lot in her class but she is way too hard on students. She really cares about the subject, and you can see it in her classes. You must participate in her classes, but it really helps The class is very thought provoking and fun. I wish more profs were like her. w Pretty much the easiest class I've ever taken. Lots of reading but it's important because everything from the test is from the reading. She loves philosophy, you can tell. Definitely eliminates all stereotypes of philosophy. I've actually really started to like philosophy. Class is very interesting. ...Continue reading

    If you go to class, do the reading, make sure you expand on your papers,and speak up in class then you should be able to get an A or at least a B+ She is very kind, and willing to explain things that you are confused about Anyone who doesn't understand Ms. Longo must be stupid because she is incredibly clear and will do whatever she can to help if you are lost. She is definitely hot but just as smart! Highly recommend! ...Continue reading

    Very nice Professor, assignments are fairly easy, class discussions are fun (participation is 15% of your grade and you can earn extra credit for ectrodinary participation if you also do your homework) Very nice teacher and she knows philosphy (it was her major). She depends on discussion, and if she doesn't get it, she gets irritated. Super boring. Maybe it was just my class, but it seems like she's teaching like she's teaching to high schoolers. This class was a constant pain in my side. ...Continue reading

I can tell she loves what she does and cares about her students. ...Continue reading

    Easy professor. If you got anything less than a C in this class you either didn't do any work or you aren't good at writing. If you email her with a question, she won't just give you a yes/no, but a paragraph explanation. No Final. Just 3 tests, not cumulative.

    Very nice and a good teacher. If she gives a reading assignment your best bet is to read because she gives quizzes on the reading assignments. If you read the quizzes are easy.

    probably the hottest philosopher ever. Only wants to teach into because she wants kids to have a good understanding of phil.

    Professor Bristow is a good teacher, a little uptight, but she loves what she teaches and that helps. Philosophy is a hard subject and she is a hard grader but if you go to class and take notes you'll do just fine. She also gives extra credit for participating in class, so don't be afraid to speak up. Her voice is whiny, there is WAY too much reading and writing. Here test are open NOTES but after all the note taking, some questions were never discussed. She is kinda cute, so I'll give her that. I hope she reads this! People take more than THREE credits, so CHILL on the workload! Says said Aristotle cute too:) ...Continue reading
