↓ I know exactly who wrote the review under mine. She was in my class winter quarter. She stood up in the middle of the final and demanded he remove a question from the IDs (there were 15 ID questions and you only needed to pick 10 of them) I remember thinking: seriously? is this girl nuts?! YUP.

Take cola. He is super chill and down to earth. Definitely go to his office hours, he goes out of his way to help students understand anything they don't get.

DO NOT take this class. WORST class ever. If you are sitting there thinking you can hang in there, you are wrong and you are about to embark on 10 weeks of HELL. The prof. is RUDE and condescending. He will ask a question and if you answer (wrong or right) he will demean you in front of everybody. He is crude and vulgar, not to mention he makes light of mental health. He speaks in mumble so if you do not sit in the first row, you will not hear. Additionally, he openly states the only people who will do well are the ones in the first row. He is also petty and immature. This guy needs to retire. DO NOT TAKE.

This class was great. We went over the Salem Witch Trials and that was REALLY interesting. Come to class on time, take great notes, do the work, go to office hours (he is really nice), and put in effort. He will help you with your papers and he is a chill grader.

Professor Colacurcio is great. His lectures are dense but he is an easy grader. He passes around a role sheet because he takes attendance into consideration. Definitely come to class, he is a great teacher and I learned a lot about American literature/history from him. I received an A- when I really deserved a B.

Quarter Taken: Fall 2013 Submitted Feb. 20, 2016 Grade Received: A

Professor Colacurcio is an outstanding professor. This man is a GRADUATE level professor. The students complaining on this page are just upset that he is not holding their hands every single day. He is very clear and helpful. He is teaching undergraduate level with the excellency of his graduate level knowledge. These 22 year old students just want to be guided because they do not know how to be independent.
