Quarter Taken: Fall 2019 Submitted Dec. 8, 2019 Grade Received: P

Super passionate guy who is very into his research. However, the workload was a bit much for a one unit class (short assignments every week--on average takes 20 minutes and a 2 page paper due at the end of the quarter); nothing crazy, but still more than I expected from taking a fiat lux. He tends to talk AT the class for long periods of time rather than formatting it seminar-style. The name of the class, "why am I crying over these kittens?", is also a bit deceiving, it's really a class about an emotion being researched by him and his colleagues (think: the feeling you get watching military reunions, wedding proposals, cute animals, a particularly touching movie scene). Overall interesting topic and super nice professor but the class itself was unfortunately not interesting.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2017 Submitted May 31, 2017 Grade Received: P

Very boring seminar. I would avoid taking any future classes with this professor. Was a lot of work for a 2 unit class.
