By far my favourite professor thus far. Made lectures interesting, and the information easy to follow. No curve balls on the tests, and provided tons of examples for the various papers we did. He truly cares about his students, and wants you to succeed, as long as you show you care.

My favourite professor so far! He cares how you do and will help you, if you show that you care. If you are the kind of student to show a non-caring attitude he will not like you at all.

The best history professor I've had so far in my multiple years at Kings. You really have to work for your grades but this class (and his upper year classes) have been some of the most enriching experiences I have had at University. He will push you to do better and I would recommend visiting his office hours to talk to him. You will learn a lot

Professor Ventresca is great at what he does. Though he does get aggravated at times you can tell he puts time into the course and he wants you to do the same. Though he is a tough marker he is a great professor and I would highly recommend him for first year.

Dr. Ventresca is an interesting Professor. His lectures are always captivating, and never dry. He expects you to work for your grade through numerous readings, but no in class exams except the final. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Ventresca to any students moving forward into history.

A truly wonderful prof. Passionate about what he does and is the reason I switched my major to History. It's a pity he isn't on Main Campus

Prof Ventresca knows everything there is to know about history! Very passionate about the subject. If you pay attention and show interest in his class, you'll do well; however, he gets agitated extremely easily.

Amazing professor. He definitely gets excited while he is talking and is eager to answer any questions you may have. As long as you demonstrate an interest in the class he will be good to you. You can tell that he loves his job, it's awesome. Only downfall is that he teaches at Kings, not Main Campus. :(

Charming, passionate about history, enthusiastic and quite a beautiful man. He has kept me interested in this course, even though I wasn't interested to begin with. He's also adorable when he tries to be "hip" and use well-known, common lingo amongst us younger crowd.
