Comment:
Mr. Turpin is a great professor!!! He's super enthusiastic about his course and makes you enjoy it as well. You get homework as a physical worksheet, like high school, which stinks but it takes 20 min. tops and is easy. I really enjoyed this class!! Easy easy A!

If the comments so far haven't convinced you to take whatever class he teaches that you're considering, you must be some sort of robot. He's my favorite professor, and I didn't even like insects going into this class!

Comment:
Turpin is awesome! I went out of my way to take his Insects in Prose and Poetry course because I had heard such rave reviews from friends of mine. I loved his sense of humor and easy going personality. I also like that he is fun but still holds you accountable for yourself. The work you do reflects how you do in his class. Great experience!

You should take this class despite your feelings of insects. It's great to take a class taught by a professor that is so well known around and beyond Purdue!

If there's one professor I recommend beyond all others at purdue it's Tom Turpin. He is absolutely entertaining and hilarious... I never skipped his class because it was always so enticing to go and see what antics would be projected that day. He's amazing and the class is pretty easy.

A great class! Lots of busy work and the weekly quizes can be difficult. The final was a piece of cake. Once you learn the insect orders your home free. Take in the Spring so you can help with the bug bowl.
