Comment:
He was super funny and didn't take himself super seriously; Respects his students and doesn't talk down. The material was really interesting and I never thought I'd like a Geography class. You need to watch the lectures/go to class to pass the tests. I didn't use/need the textbook. Take good notes!

Dr. Graves is really chill. The class was asynchronous and quizzes were easy and short. I got the textbook and I wish I didn't because he teaches everything you need to know in the lectures. Super easy-going. Take his class!

Bill Graves is a wonderful professor - possibly the best I've ever had. Hilarious, informative, and lectures terms in a way you can remember, his lessons will 100% carry on to you after you finish his class. But, be sure to take notes during lectures, as he doesn't place them anywhere online. Attend class, take notes, and you'll love the class.

Hilarious professor, the class is mostly lectures but he makes them interesting. As long as you show up and study notes before the exams you'll do great.

Professor Graves is a really chill, down-to-earth man. Personally, I thought the material was interesting. Ngl tho, his lectures are long. Attendance isnt mandatory but you should definitely go since he does do some pollev questions and he does not post his lectures online. The hw assignments were just readings. Overall, I thought it was an easy A

Good professor and all around cool guy. Not overly strict with rules, grades tests (which aren't terribly difficult and are all multiple choice) on a curve, intermittent in-class quizzes through a polling app, and a relatively easy final project all make his class a home run. He wants you to get an A.

Bill was a great professor for GEOG 1101. I highly recommend you take him for this class. He makes lectures very interesting and has a great sense of humor. He is also very passionate for what he is teaching.

While attendance is not mandatory, he does not post the key information from the powerpoints. The lectures are very interesting. Write down all of the main ideas and some examples. Read the articles he posts; this is the only hw. Try to connect these to the classes, it will make the tests easier.

He is really into the subject but overall it is a pretty boring class. A lot of notes and tests are pretty tough but he lets you use a notecard on it. Good teacher but tough.

As said previously, Graves is a professor you wouldn't mind chilling with on the weekends. He is a fantastic teacher and has a great sense of humor. He's super chill and makes the material (which is bound to be boring no matter who teaches it) clear and understandable. Tests are quite difficult, but I would not choose anyone else for a professor

Graves is a Professor that you wouldn't mind chilling with over the weekend. He answers every question that you have about his class or his lectures. He is usually in his office so there is no problem finding him. Tests can be challenging, but if you read the notes and articles, you should get an A. C test average A in class from the curve given.

Horrible teacher his test relate nothing to his lectures he will not tell you your final grade he says there is a rule preventing him from doing so, his test are painfully hard and his grading scale is even harder to understand if you can find another teacher that teaches the same classes take the other teacher instead do not take Graves

Comment:
Was my professor this semester. He made geography pretty enjoyable. Tests are difficult but he does a huge curve at the end of the semester! Attendance is not necessarily mandatory but he uses clicker questions almost every lecture that go into a participation grade. Look over the notes and read the articles and you should do fine!

My best professor this semester. Cool dude, makes geography interesting. He thoroughly knows what he's talking about, and very approachable. Throws a lot of info at you, but makes it understandable. Test are tough, not impossible. Study your notes, READ THE ARTICLES, and you'll do fine. Also does clicker questions.

This guy is great. He makes this lectures super duper interesting. I can see how some people might think the actual content is boring but professor Graves has great examples and stories that keep everyone's attention. Virtually no homework and tests that are easy if you just listen to his lectures in class and take some notes.

This class is easy if you pay attention, attend class, and read the articles he gives you. His test are difficult because he chooses obscure questions, but he know that and gives awesome curves.

Lesson 1: Geography is NOT maps! Very nice guy but his class is much harder than it needs to be. Tests are very difficult but he does a good job in keeping the grades far. Moves class average up to a 75 at the end of the semester and uses clickers for extra points. If you're not willing to study and read articles he posts, this class isn't for you.

This class is pretty enjoyable. Bill is a laid-back guy and is funny. His 3 exams are hard, and a good bit of studying is required. He curves his tests at the end of the year, and now you can purchase a clicker and answer extra credit questions during class. Recommend taking him

He is a very cool guy. The tests are very hard. There are no other assignments. He curves the tests at the end of the semester.
