Comment:
Ljungquist is the man, he's funny, extremely personable and helpful. His lectures can get a little boring but his tests are super easy if you take notes and mark down what passages he analyzes in class. You do have to read or at least look up the book online because otherwise you'll be lost but if you show you care even a little, you'll get an A.

Professor Ljungquist is really good at making his 9 AM lecture something you ACTUALLY want to wake up for and go to. He is really funny and grades well and fair. I LOVED THIS CLASS. I would most definitely take his class again. Besides the Junto was lowkey his fav group. :P

Professor Ljungquist is arguably one of the best professors I have had at WPI. Although English and Literature might feel like chores at times, he makes the class pretty easy to deal with considering all the discussions, grades fairly, and is a tremendous help. Definitely take his class I took 4 classes with him in all.

Best professor I ever had. Very fun and always keeps the class interested, and extremely helpful! He's really encouraging too, gives great advice and suggestions for improvement, and always has a compliment for the students' work. I thought I'd hate English class- Ljungquist made it worthwhile.

I ended up in his class completely on accident and I seriously thought i wouldn't like it, but he turned out to be a GREAT teacher and he makes the classes interesting. It's an 8am class but i dont mind waking up for it in the morning. You'll love this man!

I had Professor Ljungquist 3 times while a student at WPI. Easily my favorite professor on campus, and I asked him to become my advisor. He knows his stuff, but like it was said earlier he doesn't flaunt it. Fun, interesting classes with great discussion.

I had him for Amer Realism. He makes the class very interesting- you cannot fall asleep! Good teacher, knows his stuff well but does not show off. I learnt a lot from his class. I just didn't find the subject matter, the American Realist movement, very interesting...

He is just a wealth of info. I had him one-on-one. Quite funny, and always very excited about the material. He won't BS you about the material

I had KPL for both id2050 and IQP. he is a bit of an oddball, but he is smart and helpfull. He is also very open, atleast as far as i found from my iqp, to not following the line with the igsd.

A little long-winded at times, but generally very interesting. Always helpful, and while he doesn't like to flaunt it like other WPI HU@A professors, he knows his subject matter inside and out.
