Comment:
He is very enthusiastic about the class. There are 3 projects (all on the same topic and he is willing to help) and 2 tests. Not too terrible just kind of boring. He takes attendance and takes that into account at the end.

Comment:
Hoeschele is opinionated and will always make sure he has the last word. The readings are boring but he's knowledgeable and will make sure you understand what's going on. You do a partner discussion leadership project for one of the readings, a 10-15 page term paper over anything you want, and then a presentation over that term paper in class.

I loved this professor, he may be boring but his class wasn't hard at all and he is always there to help when you need it. He tends to stray off topic but the conversations had in class are somewhat entertaining. I would definitely take a class of his again.

Comment:
Drink coffee before this class-- you will never every ounce of energy to stay awake. He makes it very difficult to stay focused and care. His a stickler for specificity on tests, but studying should get you by with a B or an A. If you have to take him it's not the end of the world.

Comment:
Dr. H is a strange dude. His classes are really boring and he pronounces a lot of words incorrectly, a lot of words. At first it's funny, but eventually it just pisses you off. Don't take this class. It may be easy, but it's not fun. He's a nice guy, but avoid this if it's not your major

Comment:
This class was so boring. The readings were SUPER long and not that interesting. We had 5 short writing assignments, one 20 page paper and a 25 minute presentation. Attendance wasn't mandatory. He's a nice guy who is willing to help outside of class. I never attended class because of how boring it was.

Comment:
I took Wolfgang for a political geography class and it was probably the best class ever...he is smart and knows what he is talking about. He's very helpful and gives good feedback, allows class discussions to flow. he has his opinions and sticks to them but is willing to test them through his students.. hes brilliant.

Comment:
What a horrible class to take! The readings were so long and boring, and then in class all we did was talk about the readings, which put me to sleep everyday. At least I got points for showing up. The papers were not unbearable, but I waited until the night before to write the 10-12 page paper. NOT FUN!! Don't take him if you can help it!

Comment:
I was really excited to take this class, but after the first day, my interest level died. He is very opinionated and will disagree with almost everything you say. The final was open note, so it was pretty easy. You have to do a large paper and presentation and lead one of the classes with another person. The readings are boring. Do not take him.

For it being a 100 level class, he made it more difficult than it should have been. If you have a deep interest in geography, he would be a good professor, otherwise try to avoid.

Wolfgang is really awkward, but he's not as bad as people say he is. He's VERY opinionated but he's actually really helpful and very knowledgeable about a lot of topics.

What can I say about Wolfgang? Definitely don't take this class just to fulfill a LSP mode of inquiry. If you must take it though, and you have a problem with never learning anything in class and using wikipedia to make your study guide, then don't take Wolfgang.

His class is 100% lecture based, I have never opened a textbook. There are only 3 assignments and 1 test besided the final which means there is not a lot of room to screw up. There are not a lot of points so you have to be in class to get the notes otherwise the tests are impossible.

This class in completely useless. I only took it meet a major requirement. His lectures are completely disorganized and so is his syllabus. Since it's so hard to take notes it makes it near impossible to study for your tests, which there are only 2. I would never take him again. . .BORING!

Comment:
While the class is completely easy beyond belief, with 2 tests only worth 30%, and 3 assignments worth 75% of your grade...EASY! He takes attendance sometimes but nowhere in the syllabus does it say its required. He said "uh" or "um" 562 times in a 50 minute period. horrible speaker! Wait for him to try to pronounce vegetables, you'll die laughing.

Absolutely horrible. I made a habit of falling asleep. He is so boring that you have no chance to learn anything. If you're FORCED to take it, there r 3 assignments and 2 tests. The tests are BS-able, but impossible to really study for b/c you don't learn anything. For the assignments, pick an EASY country and you'll be okay. Just bored and annoyed

Completely boring, I couldn't pay attention for 5 minutes, let alone 80, the reading is hard to understand, and he doesn't really go over the homework, just something vaguely related to it. The only time I ever tried to pay attention in class was when I was trying to count how many times he said "um" in one class(278, no joke).

Comment:
He is not as bad as people make him sound. True he misprounounces words and says um a lot, but he isn't a native English speaker (I think). He knows incredible amounts of info. Like a walking encyclopedia. Go to class, study and you should get an A. I did, I did, and I did.
