Student Reviews of Professor Kathleen Kreamelmeyer

“I love Dr. K! If I could have her for more EDEL courses, I definitely would. Few things she grades you on, so you gotta do well on what you’re assigned. She really cares, and honestly, is just the cutest lil’ lady. She’s genuine and will sincerely listen to you with any concerns you have.”

“She is by far my favorite professor! She doesn’t give a lot of homework, just a few reading assignments. She is a very caring and understanding teacher. All she really asks of you is to participate in her lectures. If you have a chance to sign up for her class, SIGN UP!”

“By far the best professor I have ever had! Her love for teaching shows in her lectures. She inspires me to be just like her! AMAZING PROFESSOR!!”

Student Reviews of Professor Srikant Devaraj

“Great and caring teacher. He puts a lot of effort into this course to make sure that his students succeed. The only downside is that he doesn’t normally allow laptops in class, but even then he would print out the lecture slides and hand them out if needed. Great guy.”

“Prof. Devaraj is hands down my favorite professor at Ball State. The class assignments are mostly done online, and you get multiple chances to get a perfect score. This makes the class easy, but you also end up learning the material from his lectures and the help you receive from the online material. Great guy overall!”

“I really enjoyed his class. Dr. Deveraj made Econ fairly interesting and simplified the material. If you do decent on the two midterms and do all of the APLIA and Problem sets you will get a high grade. Final is tough, cumulative and worth 30% other than that great class”

Student Reviews of Professor Kathryn Gardiner

“Professor Gardiner is amazing! She really wants her students to succeed in her classroom. She provides great feedback and is always willing to help.”

“Gardiner is a great choice of professor for scriptwriting! She’s extremely caring, funny, and gives great lectures on useful topics. I learned a lot in her class and ended up signing up for another of her classes the next semester.”

“My favorite professor and only had her for 5 weeks. She’s thoughtful and very helpful. Such a fun and interesting class. I actually WANTED to go to class every time. A lot of movie clips were shown, which was awesome, but they actually taught so much as well.”

Student Reviews of Professor Jason Dunham

“Great Chemistry teacher who cared about his students and made it so that everyone could be successful. He never gave out anything for free but helped guide us to success. Amazing professor and I have nothing but good things to say about him.”

“He is the best prof I’ve had at Ball State. There was a time where I had missed class and missed a homework because of it and the next time he saw me he said I could take a pic and email it to him for full credit. He is such a funny, caring professor who does everything he can to help his students.”

“Really great guy. You can tell he cares about his work and his students. I broke my leg halfway through the semester, and he was more than accommodating to my situation. Met with me outside of class to help me, as well as to let me take tests. If you show up and pay attention, then you will do fine. Decent amount of homework, but its not that hard.”

Student Reviews of Professor Carolyn Malone

“I absolutely adore Dr. Malone! Her HIST 452 class was so informational and interesting. She has cute jokes and keeps you intrigued. She gives tests, but with a study guide beforehand. A couple of essay’s which are simple. She gives homework sometimes, which is also simple. Extra credit available, too! 100% recommend.”

“Dr. Malone is SO passionate and enthusiastic about history. She genuinely cares about her students and wants them to succeed. There are 5 exams, and 2 extra credit opportunities, no assignments. You do not need to read the textbook except for the pages that she tells you to look over on each study guide. It is important to take good lecture notes.”

“I was fully expecting a boring history class. I was so wrong. She’s a wonderful teacher, loves her work and deeply cares. Her excitement for the material is infectious and engaging. I’m sad about the semester coming and already looking into her other classes. If you’re present to take notes, the material and tests are straight forward & manageable.”

Student Reviews of Professor Abera Zegeye

“Horrible”

“He is a terrible teacher DO NOT TAKE UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE NO CHOICE! He is really strict and doesn’t allow phones. If you mess up he will embarrass you and won’t care. I have experienced this first hand, I was yelled at and kicked out for having my phone on my lap for a split second. If you miss a test day and try taking it he will chew u out”

“WORST PROFESSOR EVER! He is one of the hardest people to understand and will kick you out of class immediately if he even catches a glimpse of your phone. Class is all notes unless you are taking a quiz or test which are the hardest worded most confusing things on this planet, the class average one of the quizzes was a D if that tell you anything”

Student Reviews of Professor Roger McConnell

“Roger does the point system where each assignment is worth a certain amount of points and to get an A you have to get between 900-1000 points. He’s a creep old man and boring. If you miss 3 DAYS he will take off 50 points. Pretty ridiculous.”

“Don’t take this class with him. Don’t do it. He will grade you on criteria never mentioned and tell you about assignments days before they’re due. This Professor needs to retire.”

“Take your computer to the test days, he doesn’t watch your screen… a very easy class but it will cost you time and money to go see shows outside of class for credit.”

Student Reviews of Professor Ira Rice

“Very tough class. The assignments were easy but also hardly did anything for your grade even with a 100%. His lectures had nothing to do w/ the quizzes which were trick questions mostly. Lectures were boring and very strict about attendance. I studied for about 8-10 hours for the final and still received a C. I highly recommend a different prof.”

“Assigned seating, points off if you are late. 6-8 pages of notes every day. His lectures are all over the place and annoying to listen to. Impossible exams with trick questions and he doesn’t care if you pass or fail, I would strongly recommend getting a new professor! Worst history class for sure.”

“Assigned seats. Mandatory attendance. If you miss a class, you miss getting any notes. Showed up to every class and still struggled through the course. No late assignments. No make-up anything. Nothing covered in class is on the Exams! Definitely harder than a 100 level course. I recommend getting a different professor. Nice guy. Awful professor.”

“Awful.”

“Drop if you can. This is hands down the worst professor. She mostly talks about her dying husband and her granddaughter. No cell phone use, and she yells at anyone she can. I dropped within three weeks, best choice I’ve made.”

“Worst teacher I’ve ever had. Rarely teaches about the subject. Talks mostly about dying husband and favorite granddaughter. Cannot have phones/laptops. Yells at people randomly. Get out now before it’s too late.”
