Quarter Taken: Spring 2021
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
Submitted July 15, 2021
Grade Received: A

Easy A-- Von Blum cares about the impact he leaves on his students, not the grades he gives out. He cares about his students more than any professor I've ever had. Here's what you should know. He gives 2 large essays per quarter, and then an extremely fair quiz at the end of the quarter.

Essays are worth 45% each, and the quiz is worth 10% of the grade.

Essays are 6-7 double spaced pages, several topics are provided and you choose one that you feel most comfortable about. TA's grade the essays.

The quiz is like 5 questions, open book, and didn't require any studying honestly. You walk out of his class with more empathy for others and a larger perspective. Just take the damn class, the man is GOOD at what he does, and he walks the walk too. It was an honor meeting him throughout my academic endeavors and being a student of his.

Great professor. Current subject matter is tied into the historical text.
