Awful

Prof. Dickie is the worst prof I've ever had. He isn't available during his office hours, he locks people out of class even if they're only a minute late, he isn't responsive to emails, and he reads verbatim out of the textbook for a three hour lecture without a break. Lastly, he brushes you off if you try to ask for help. Avoid him at all costs.

Awful

Professor Dickie is so awful. His lectures were shallow and did not help towards understanding anything. He's also extremely unhelpful and uncaring too.

Good

Prof. Simon is amazing! He's very interested in the social, historical, and political contexts of the text he teaches; thus adding more depth to his lectures. Sometimes though it feels like he's reading the text back at us and interpreting it line by line which can be really tedious but it's honestly helpful for better understanding.
