She was very rude throughout the year. She said many inappropriate things during class. She makes the class a lot more difficult that necessary.

I took theater for a GPA booster and at best I will probably get a low B. She lectures daily and her tests are difficult. You also have to see a play that depends on 200 points of your grade.

The BEST acting teacher that there is! However, do not take this class just to take it. She treats you as if you want to become an actor/actress. Be prepared to perform in front of people daily and without notice. Always do your work, and be willing to get better. That's all she asks of you. And ALWAYS go to class!

Awesome and gives great feedback. Doesnt give herself enough credit. Acting 220 was fun and she graded us based on if we listened and tried her suggestions and put in effort. Just show up and try and youll get an A or high B

I cant tell you how much I loved this class. Half of the semester is costuming, half is makeup. For makeup, we learn cuts and bruises, old age, etc., and she lets us have a lot of creative license. Shell give you notes and youre graded on how you listen and respond to the notes and how it shows in your work. Plus you get to keep your makeup kit.

No textbook required, woohoo! Get ready to write, and make sure you put your phone up, but I loved the class. Participation is really important though, so take this class when you know youll get up and actually go. We have to go watch a play, but sometimes we have movie/play days where you can bring food and watch the shows on the projector.

While the class wasn't too difficult, I found her to be just rude. I didn't like her or her attitude. If you want to make a good grade, go to class because the powerpoints aren't online and she has a certain amount of absences. You also have to go to a play.

Hollis wasnt the best teacher I have had but not the worse. She was okay. This class you have to actually put a little effort into. If you're looking for an easy A I wouldnt suggest her. Attendance is mandatory. Also just talks the whole time and occasionally uses a powerpoint so you never really know what to write down nor what will be on the test

Very rude and not helpful. Purposefully blows off questions and does not ever give full answers. Disorganized and does not go by the syllabus. Not a class to take if you want an easy A or if you aren't genuinely interested in theatre and fine arts.

Highly do not recommend this class. She makes a syllabus but by the third week, we were way off schedule, and no revised syllabus was provided. She is so incredibly rude and hateful. Makes you feel like an idiot for asking questions. This is a freshman level class, but will NOT boost your GPA. Don't take unless you're already familiar with theatre.

Moody and Hateful! She really felt like degrading her students this semester. If you asked for help, she would look at you like you were an idiot and make some sarcastic remark without even answering your question. I loved the material and am breezing through the class with minimal effort, but I wish she cared more! Never had a professor this rude!

You can take her class and really enjoy being there because she's just a fun person. That being said, the quizzes are tough unless you know the material like the back of your hand and have a working knowledge of it. Not an easy A teacher. She does appreciate students coming to see her though--so take advantage of office hours.

The class I had with her was half online and half in classroom, we met together as a class every two weeks. I really enjoyed Mrs. Hollis's class. You have to do your work, don't expect a free ride. She will call you out on sleeping or texting in class but tells you up front not to do either one.

I liked having this teacher for theatre class it was fairly easy as long as you attended class and stayed awake. She is very outspoken and will call on you in a heartbeat if you are texting or sleeping in her class.

The quality of her lectures depends on her mood. You can tell when she's not really into it. There were a few times when she was a little crass with students, some of which deserved it, others not so much. Write down any random or obscure talking points she makes because she likes to include oddball lecture stuff on the test. Easy course.

Mrs. Hollis is a great teacher and keeps you entertained! There are daily assignments, but they are easy. Class is not hard as long as you study for tests and pay attention.
