He loves his subject but loves his students even more. Made lectures very interesting and interactive and was always available to help out with assignments and give feedback. Made me not hate Monday mornings. Is a little homework heavy but it's always very easy, and there was only one major essay. Makes an effort to get to know his students

You can tell how much he enjoys teaching this sort of subject matter and how much he cares about his students. He was also funny and assigned homework that was fairly easy to complete, but helped us learn nonetheless. The only problem I had is his unclear grading criteria.

Dr. Faber is definitely one of the best, if not the best professor I had at UW so far. He cares about students, and often accessible outside class. Recommended!

Faber is one of the best profs I've had at UW! Very straight forward and makes long lectures interesting. Has a good sense of humour, and is always willing to answer any questions you have. The tests are hard for this course, and textbook and attendance is mandatory. Great prof overall! Hard course, but I thought he did a great job.

Dr. Faber is a fabulous teacher. He clearly loves classics, and manages to engage even the non-classics students. If you have any experience in classics, literature, or ancient history, this will be one of the easiest courses you'll ever take.

Professor Faber is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very knowledgeable, passionate about his field, and intelligent! Within the first week he knew all his students by name in a rather large class. He is also very kind and approachable. A language course is time-consuming, but I would definitely recommend it if you have the time for it!

He is an amazing professor. I have never encountered someone with more passion for what he teaches. His excitement and love for classics is inspiring and makes going to class a pleasure. If you have the option of taking one of his courses, you should. He is fair, respectful and will make you love what you learn.

An amazing professor. The content of the course was really hard, but Faber delved right into the complex grammar of the language with epic enthusiasm. His tests are really hard, but so is the content; I would happily be taught by him again.

It was an absolute PRIVILEGE to have Dr. Faber as a professor. His passion for teaching was immense and kept my interest even in topics I did not think would be interesting. His tests were a piece of cake too. Thank you for your time, Dr. Faber!

Faber is a very effective prof. He is very interested in his work and it shows. The classes were very exciting and interesting. The workload was reasonable, just do what he suggests and you can get a good mark. The text, notes and lectures are key in getting a good mark. Take his course!

By far the best professor I have had! Most well spoken lecturer in the university. He keeps you excited to come to each class and really makes it enjoyable to learn this material. His tests are reasonable, not meant to trick you just to see if you know your stuff.

It has been 2 years since i had this class and i actually miss it! To this day i tell people to take this class because his passion for teaching ancient greek society made me want to learn. Don't take it if you are looking for a bird course, work is required. I find i still use what i have learned from the class.. AWESOME PROF!!

Knows his subject and loves what he does, which makes it a pleasure to listen to his lectures. Down side of his very, very high expectations is that tests are tests of retention and memory. 75 questions in 50 minutes where dates, times, and details count. Overall, great course (even if my mark sucks compared to other courses!).
