Comment:
I had Dr. Mink for my University Perspectives class (Wellness). The only assignments were to journal twice a week, and an easy project about what was learned throughout the course at the end of the semester. Dr. Mink is very passionate about wellness. I looked forward to his class. Just do your assignments. No tests.

Dr. Ed is a sweet sweet man, just wants you to succeed. Genuinely cares about the topics he teaches and doesn't expect too much work, just participation and engagement. Easy A. Have no idea why his rating is so low.

Really nice guy with a lot of enthusiasm and charisma. He taught my Wellness-U course for university perspectives and he was educated and enthusiastic about how work and his students learning. I would take this guy for every class if he taught them all!

Pretty difficult to tolerate for more than twice a week. Definitely try to only take a one hour class if you have to take him.

Comment:
I really was looking for a class that taught the material clearly and concisely but I ended up with an instructor who is more intent on "opening" your eyes to the world around you. Strangely, his demeanor is quite energetic and frenzied which makes for an unusual experience when one is studying exercise to relieve stress.

Dr. Mink might just be my favorite professor at the U of A. Took him for Yoga and Assertivenss Training. Very helpful and super sweet! Always willing to do whatever he needs to do to help you out. Would definitely recommend him to anyone!

I took Resilence and Thriving. He is a wonderful teacher. Very encoraging and really sweet. Attendance isnt required. Only on 2 assignments all semester. Easy grader. I dont understand the negitive reviews his classes are an easy A and hes really nice. Take one of his classes if you need extra easy hours.

I've had a couple classes with Dr. Mink now. He's one of the most good hearted people I've met. He's extremely fair in grading, never tries to trick you and will work with you if you need assisting. The only thing is that, since he is the director of health promotion, he can get really busy and might need reminders on some things.

I took Aikido I and II with him. I was very nervous at first, but he made it fun enough that I have continued to pursue it. Very enthusiastic and interested in his students. Do expect a journal assignment or very short paper (like, a page). As long as you actually try to take advantage of the class instead of slacking, you're going to get an A.

This is not someone i would recommend for any class you take. First of all he is NOT easy and is NOT helpful. He loves to hear himself talk and would not help a student for anything. Very pompous human being, can honestly say that having him as my professor was a waste of my time.

Dr. Mink is an awesome professor. He's very willing to help and he gives you many chances to redeem yourself. You don't even have to attend all the classes.. He's a great role model and everyone else that doesn't like him are probably just miserable.

Pursuing Health & Happiness: Loves his wife. Very content with his life. Doesn't have any kind of outline for the class. Just gives random assingnments. I liked him. It was an okay class. Be prepared to write a daily journal and complete some kind of volunteer work.

Dr. Mink is an awesome person. He really cares about the stuff he teaches. If you think you are taking a blow-off class, you are mistaken. He can make a 1000-level class into an upper level class.

Very good martial arts instructor, very knowledgable, a bit random in class but is nature of his teaching style and nature of the martial arts he teaches. Go to his dojo and will help you as much as you need. Fair grader and not hard to do will if you want to.

Mink seems like a cool guy at first, but I'd agree that he thinks quite highly of himself. I did not appreciate how he tried to put his "Zen" stuff on his students. Sometimes in class I would forget what the topic was supposed to be...he doesn't seem like he comes into class with a plan most of th
