Comment:
Cheryl is great! I took Intro to International Relations with her and found it really interesting & easy. No book but we did have xeroxed packets and assigned readings in them every night. Readings are hard but her lectures are so clear I never even did them. Graded on one hw assignment, three papers, and final (gives you questions ahead of time).

I liked her a lot. Nice to talk to, intelligent, and had a really good grasp on the materials for the class that I took with her.

She goes off on random rants. Started throwing stuff at an internet server that kept making noise. Kinda weird, but knows her stuff.

She is a bit monstrous. She wasn't helfpul either. I also find her quite depressing to be around.

Awful prof. It's a miracle that she made it through grad school. I have actually witnessed her throwing an eraser at another professor. She is an abusive hack. Dido: Publish something besides a travel brochure, you lazy low life.

Horrible Professor and human being. I throw-up in my mouth when I think about working with her. She is not just incompetent, apathetic, and lazy. She is actually evil and insane. A goldfish could teach international law-- or anything, really, better. Also, publish something besides for a travel brochure on your musings about your Caribbean cruise.

Comment:
Mediocre. Course might have been great if it had been taught by someone elsje. Doesn't present many new ideas apart from those in the textbooks. Assigns pretty random essay topics. Kind of horrible personality.

Great prof, although much better in seminar than in lecture. Hilarious and very passionate about her material. She takes some getting used to but if you do your work and are genuinely interested then the class will be very enjoyable.
