Comment:
Dr. Browning is extremely intelligent and knows a lot about his topic. The problem is, at 80 years old he really needs to retire. He knows so much that he often over complicates explanations and goes way off topic. He is also fairly opinionated. Environmental Eoncomics has been a struggle to get through and I don't recommend it.

Comment:
Dr. Browning is very nice and quirky. He is rather old and has trouble hearing and can be quite frustrating in class when everyone is shouting the right answer and then he looks around blankly and says the right answer as if no one knew... other than that his class was easy and had interesting course material. Learned a lot.

Comment:
Dr. Browning easily became one of my favorite professors of the semester. His "What's For Dinner?" class offers relevant and thought-provoking information. Expect to make a good grade in this class as long as you read the assigned texts and show up to class. He may be older than most professors, but that doesn't mean that he's senile.

Comment:
Dr. Browning is such a sweet person! The class itself wasn't easy & he does ask you to read a lot, but the class discussions were pretty good. He would get a on a rant though, and when he got going, that could be a little boring. Overall, a really nice person & helpful when needed.

Comment:
Dr. Browning is one of the sweetest professors I've had. Even though he is boring and long winded during class, he seems to enjoy meeting with students, whether it's to talk about the class or just life. Be prepared to work though, it's not an easy ride.

Shirley Browning is an excellent Professor. He encourages students to think about and become involved in important contemporary issues. Within the classroom, Browning is engaging, often wry, and always respectful toward conscientious students. This Prof. represents the best in Liberal Arts teaching.

Comment:
Why didn't someone tell me how utterly boring this prof would be?Honestly, it's not overstating it saying that by attending class for that 1hr & 20+ mins,I lose my will to live.Life loses all color and becomes a tangle of graph lines and more graph lines.It's midway thru the semester and he's still setting up for the main topic. Very few grades!
