I had to drop this class because of a scheduling conflict, but since there are so little reviews about him, I thought I would still share my experience. This review is for religion 55 by the way

Ryan Gillespie is super engaging and you can tell he really cares about his students and our opinions. I have never had a teacher so eager to read one of my essays (he would go on in class about how excited he was to read our interpretations and opinions, and you could really tell that he was being genuine). Hence, he really is an engaging lecturer and I loved talking to him

One thing that I struggled with was how quickly he went over the slides in class and all in all the pace of the class was super quick. I love writing my notes by hand, but in this class, this was simply not possible if you wanted to gather a lot of information.

If I ever need to cover a GE again, I would love to take him again! I am not at all interested in religion, but his way of talking and his enthusiasm is contagious. He was really kind and I think that he also has a great grade distribution...

I took Religion 55 with him, and his lectures were all very engaging, especially for a topic that can get boring very easily.
I’m selling required books for this class at less than new value!! (Balboni, Barnes, and Kidder books) Text at 6502733904
