Comment:
Worst professor I've ever had, probably ever will have. I go to class with a solid idea of a concept, and leave confused. Unclear grading scale, very difficult to understand, and his entire class is centered around a book. Get prepared to spend an average of two hours daily on this class. Gives no practice problems with relation to exam problems

Comment:
He's a very smart man, but literally the worst professor I've ever had. Spends an entire lecture on one example and then tells you to read the book. Doesn't actually teach anything. 1/10 would not recommend.

Comment:
Gets a bad rap, but coming from someone who had to take Orgo 1 twice, he's actually great. Follows the textbook in the order the author wrote it, exactly section by section, so it's always easy to know what you need to know (which is not quite the case with Falzone and Greenberg). Tests were hard but rarely unfair. He's hilarious and very nice.

Comment:
Townsend is the best chemistry teacher I've ever had. He is very approachable and explains the reasoning behind reactions and mechanisms. In retrospect his tests were pretty easy and as long as put in the work you'll do well. I hope he teaches Orgo II.

Teaches directly from the book. He is a great prof. who loves the material, and what he does. He made me want to be a chemistry major. If you get the chance definitely take a class with him.

Great Professor. He's helpful in office hours and conducts fascinating research. Teaches and tests directly from the textbook. If you put in the time you can get a good grade.

Inspiring, brilliant, interesting, and hilarious. IDK where all the hate for this guy comes from. Maybe its the sonic boom I hear from his jokes going over everyone's head. Talk to him. He will make you love chemistry.

Comment:
Dr. Townsend is a great professor who writes extremely fair tests that enable you to apply the concepts well. He tends to mumble sometimes while he's writing on the board, but I prefer his old-fashioned chalkboard style of teaching to PowerPoints any day. It allows you to follow him much more easily.

A little pompous, a little gray, definitely hardcore. Failed a good amount of students; heard the average was a C.

Prof Townsend is a great guy, if a hard prof. I know him personally, and he really is a kind and caring guy once you get to know him. Give him a chance.
