I took Prof Snow's online Fantasy/Science Fiction course. The content is fascinating, however,I'm very glad I took this online. She is very rude, as I emailed her once and she responded with a misspelled, condescending message. Her opinions are the only opinions, so don't come up with your own interpretation of the course content.

I agree with 90% of these comments. Avoid her as much as possible! Very opinionated, rude, and grades papers awfully.

Class was not fascinating at all. She missed class several times. Papers were not super difficult, but she did not grade super simple. It may not be the worst class I took, but I would take it with someone else if there is an option.

terrible prof., she skips class more than the students do, teaches nothing, but her own rules, and everything has to be her way 100% of the time.

She is a very mean person. I liked English before I took her class. She never helps you. We spent more time being graded on the format and line spacing of papers rather than the actual content. I would never recommend taking her as a prof..

I took her Fantasy class online and there is No gray area with her. Shes right PERIOD, EVEN when you prover her wrong. The class was all about HER opinions, yours didn't matter and nether did professionals. If your a mindless drone you will do well in her class.

Took the class online, She records her courses and will tell you this book is "answer" and then does not tell you why. Then she will ask the question on an exam and want to know why. She give grades but does not give corrections so you never know what you did wrong. Very bad prof, exams are really difficult do not take her if you can avoid it.

prof. Snow is a friendly lady once you get to know her. Get past the gruffness and she really cares about her students doing well. The first paper did not have much clarification, but the remaining papers she was always open to questions. A little bit of a difficult grader, but try your great and you should do okay.

prof. Snow may seem a little rough or mean at first, but she is a FANTASTIC teacher. Seriously, if you have any questions or need help, JUST ASK. Learned a TON of useful information in this class. Don't be intimidated by her style- she is effective! I would take her for ENG 201 if she taught it!

Took class in person as opposed to online because I needed extra help. Well, that extra help never came and I learned nothing. Although, she was open to questions she did absolutely no teaching. She could be a bit blunt and short with students. Which I could deal with, but her lack of interest to help students succeed gives prof.s a bad name.

Worst online class I've ever taken! very rude and was not understanding of students' needs. Some books/movies were fascinating however, the questions for some of the weeks were obnoxiously long. Final exam requires to talk to her on the phone, creepy. Never take her class.

Attendance is mandatory in this class, even though half the time you sit there and write your paper, and often she doesn't even show up for class but won't even post anything on blackboard. Sign up for someone else.

I did not learn from prof. Snow. When I took her class I realized how much I appreciate my high school english prof.s. I only got 3 papers returned out of the 6 or so I wrote. I was unimpressed I did not learn anything new in this class.

prof. Snow is not the most exciting or welcoming prof. in the world, but her class is accommodating and she goes above and beyond the call of duty to be accommodating. I admidt, she has been known to call people out in class, she says it how it is! Be prepared to be graded on attendance, and dont plan on slacking off.

She is not bad, but the laziest pro I've met,seriously. Also, her class is really dull. If you wanna have fun in class, don't take her's. Just, you won't have the interest to go to class.

Snow is an AMAZING prof.! One of Central Michigans great by far. Everyday you can tell she really enjoys her job. Very accommodating and approachable for all students. Gives great directions for her papers and always makes sure that everyone understands the projects. Learned way more than I ever anticipated, I highly recommend taking her.

She is such a great teacher and is super friendly. She grades papers in a reasonable amount of time for their length and she has a lot of them to grade so be patient. I would recommend her for any freshman student, she will teach you a lot and is very precise when it comes to the papers. She is very accommodating and cares so much about her students!

I have never learned as much as I have learned from prof. Snow. She is by far the great English teacher I have ever had. The papers are lengthy so grading takes a while, as expected. She will help with ANY questions you have. I RECOMMEND her for all College Freshman!

The class is somewhat difficult. Going to class really doesnt do anything, but is required. she will answer all the qustions you ask her and she does care a lot about her students and takes pride in her job. she does want students to pass so if you treat her friendly she will pass you. not a bad class
