Comment:
I had Dr. Alkemade for first year seminar not whatever English 106 is. She was the sweetest lady and understood student situations. She is flexible with work as as long as you aren't taking advantage of her. We had a lot of grades, but the work was not hard. If I'm able I would definitely take a class with her again.

Dr. Van Alkemade is by far my FAVORITE! She is very caring and thinks about her students. She gives great feedback and lets you fix your papers for a better grade. There are a total of 3 paper and they are easy. There is no final! I am planning to take more of her classes in the future.

Dr. Van Alkemade is one of the best professors Ship has to offer. She's published two NYT Best Selling books, she's super accessible outside of class, and she truly cares about the work you're crafting. Mostly a fiction/creative nonfiction writing professor, I like taking classes with her because she gives us time to write/revise/workshop in class.

Great professor!! She really cares about her students and offers great instruction. There are a total of 4 essays you must write which are around 4ish pages; not bad. She gives specific instructions on what she expects you to write in each paragraph which makes it not so stressful. Also NO MIDTERM OR FINAL!!! Her classes usually end 30min early!

Dr. van Alkemade is a very sweet and easy going professor. She outlines every single one of your papers for you and allows you to revise them. She even offers you 20 extra bonus points for going to a lecture.

I had Professor Van Alkemade for WIFYS and it was a wonderful class. Just do your work and you will get an easy A. She was always willing to help and gave extra credit for us to go to a tutoring session. Would highly recommend.

Good WIFYS teacher. Fairly generous grader. Understands that it's just a gen ed. Gives very clear instructions on papers, which you only have 4 of. Good office hours. Show up, write the papers somewhat decently, and you'll be good. I'd take her again.

Van Alkemade is by far one of my favorite professors at Ship so far. Her assignments are always clear, she treats her students like adults, and she's a fairly easy grader. If you show up and pay attention in class, do your work & put some effort into it, there is no reason why you shouldn't get an A. I highly recommend her.

My favorite teacher at Shippensburg. Grades fairly and is willing to help you out in any way. Class consists of several small projects, a midterm, and one large research paper (5-10 pages). I recommend this class and teacher to everyone.
