Comment:
Honestly the worst professor I have ever had. His class isnt hard but its extremely tedious and time consuming when I rather be doing more important stuff for other classes. Communication is terrible and he never responds to emails. Directions are always unclear and assignments are tedious. Class is a waste of time I havent learned anything.

Landscape Planning is essentially a course title assigned to a once-a-week class where students work individually on their own research projects, and Dr. Kulhavy meets with you and helps your progress. Dr. Kulhavy is awesome! He's calm, organized, and genuinely cares about his students. He's very knowledgable and aims for every project to be great!

Comment:
Dr. Kulhavy is a crazy man. You will not learn much about whatever the class title is. His upper level courses are designed for one thing: to produce undergraduate research for SFA and ATCOFA. That being said, make the most out of your project. It can give you crazy opportunities to publish research and boost your resume. It is what you make of it.

Comment:
Dr Kulhavy made this class unbearable. His slides had entire novels on them and he blew through them fast. We barely learned anything about landscape ecology. Instead he rambled on and on about drones which had nothing to do with the class. Overall this class was made to test our patience instead of teach us anything. It's easy but its not worth it

He is crazy as all get out but can be extremely funny. The class could never be hard but I took it as an honors class and it was awesome. We took walks in the arboretum and stuff like that to get out of the classroom. My only problem with him is he never stops talking. Easy Class. No real work.

This class is pretty easy. Just go to class, make friends, and learn about different things at SFA. There are lots of fun activity days such as pumpkin carving and scavenger hunts, and several speakers came to talk to the class about different services available at the university.

You go into this class knowing it will be a blow-off. Having said that, Kulhavy is helpful regarding scheduling and how to change your major. He knows a lot about different majors and tells you who to talk to. You also do fun things like carve pumpkins and plant trees. Overall, an easy and honors credit.

Fantastic professor! It seems like he's a little off his rocker, but he really knows his stuff. All you have to do is ask and he'll help you with anything. The class really helps when you take Management Plans because you know how to look for high risk disease spots and how to rate stands for bug hazards. Work hard on the project and the song.

Very hard to figure out exactly what he is wanting from projects. He also DOES NOT know his stuff. The winning project from last semester contained incorrect definitions and quotes taken out of context. It is difficult to trust what you learn from professors like this.

There aren't any grades in this class. Basically everyday we just went over any issues people were having with classes and roommates. We also had some help with academic advising and learned about study abroad programs. Interesting professor

Yes it's supposed to be a blow off class, but he took such an interest in helping all of us that you couldn't help but be taught some of the basics to survival. He helps to give you some Schedule Advising before you actually go to your advisor. If everyone could just sit down with him to discuss their plans in college, he could help them succeed.

Not a real class, but he is a great guy. Took a personal interest in everyone in the room. Thinks outside the box.

Great guy and will do anything to help out students. He really loves his job. He really knows his stuff, but those who are more traditional or "factual" type thinkers might have a hard time. His teaching style is unorganized and abstract a lot of times, and hard for some (like me!) to follow. Show interest and write good papers and you will be fine

He is a very hip teacher, had a lot of fun in the 60's. This class is not hard and is really fun. For his papers just add lots of pictures
