I took Latin 1,2,3 with Professor Beckelhymer and he is the best Professor I have ever had. He cares so much about his students and that they are enjoying his class and learning the material. He hosts office hours everyday I think? But is also willing to schedule meetings whenever a student needs. He is also fluent in ?7? other languages and is so knowledgeable about Latin and Classics in general. I think he's even the head of the Classics/Latin department so he's super dedicated to his teachings and really wants everyone to succeed in his classes. Highly highly highly recommend Latin as your foreign language requirement (especially if you don't like speaking new languages because all of Latin 1,2,3 is written or read) and Sam is the best professor to take it with for sure.

Sam is an absolutely amazing professor, I took all three Latin classes with him. He was very accommodating during COVID and BLM protests, and genuinely cared about our mental health and well being. He is such a kind person and a great professor, although latin is not easy and the vocabulary and syntax pile on pretty fast but overall this series was very doable and enjoyable.

Only COVID-19 has this professor hanging in and hanging on. Poor dude, couldn't spell multiple medical terms, including on the exams he provided. The weirdest bit? His obsession with genitalia medical terms surrounding women's bodies and his frequent if not weekly use of the word sphincter in quizzes. This professor will remind you white men fail upwards all the time.

This professor made countless of my classmates feel stupid when meanwhile he himself was a moron; and I don't provide that review lightly. Why are all the lecturers on this campus so often white, so often male and so weird about talking about bodies like we're not adults? Can they enter this century and discuss bodies without a giggle? This guy needs to get reported but even sitting across from him again to do that would give me the heebie jeebies. You been warned.

You want a paper/post a week on medical terminology, 20 hours of work if you can't find the right answers on the internet and more?
HARD PASS.
SKIP.
AVOID LIKE RONA.
Oh, and I'm pretty sure he adds himself to the GroupMe, posing as a student like that's not creepy. I hope more of his real students start reviewing him cause this one's a mess.
