    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Many people before arriving to this class in person and on ratemyprofessor.com had strong opinions that her class was really hard and that she wasn't the nicest person ever. Honestly, the course is a normal college course and she seems to be a good professor.

    Course highlights:

    She used to give pop quizzes in the beginning of the school year making us if we didn't read the readings for the assigned day. This wasn't necessarily a highlight but it got everyone reading which in then increased our conversation on the readings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ! Whatever she assigns to you on the course calendar or in class or on canvas read it please! You will be lost in class or receive horrible pop quiz grades if you do not read because the questions are specific its is no getting around it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    For one, the teacher is super fun and energetic! She is real and honest with us from the start as well which is helpful. She of course takes class seriously, but she also cares about us getting involved and not letting us be bored to death and fall asleep. Sociology is also very interesting and learning that deviant behavior is relative to each person is also fascinating.

    Course highlights:

    Fun instructor! Also, what deviant behavior is as a whole is interesting because most people would say taking drugs for example is deviant, but there's circumstances that some people might be sick and have to take it. Sociology allows you to think of every scenario and look from others perspectives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't freak out if you don't know anything about sociology, it's a great into and she reviews the basics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Rachael is one of the most down to earth, engaging professors I have been honored to learn from. She strives to make sure her students interact as much as possible, and does not spend the entire class lecturing. She varies her teaching styles so that the class is never boring - lectures, movies, group discussions, she does it all. She uses her own life experience, and makes students expand his or her mind to understand the topics which she is teaching.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I gained more knowledge of the falsity of deviance. I learned such a great amount of the effect of society on the word deviant. I understand how deviance is a socially constructed idea, and more of the effects of labeling one as deviant. I learned how to look beyond what I have been told to see that nothing is truly deviant unless society tells us so.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Speak up in class, and get to know Rachael. Send her an email, meet her during office hours, or simply stay a minute after class. While she does spend a good deal of time getting to know her students, she teaches multiple classes. She better remembers the students that talk during each of her classes, but she absolutely loves hearing from the quieter students. She likes to spread the discussion to those she hears less from, but she never discourages anyone from speaking.
