Comment:
The worst thing about Cindy is that she's so busy all the time, but that speaks to how much everybody loves her. She cares so, so, so much about what she studies, and it comes through. If you ask a question and she doesn't know the answer, she will literally come to class the next day and tell everyone what she found. SO GOOD!

A truly wonderful human being. Great advisor, easy to talk to, and passionate about what she teaches. Assigns a lot of readings, but they are worth reading. This was a seminar course in social conflict so participation was very important.

Comment:
Social Psych was one of the most influential courses I took at Oberlin, and Cindy made everything very clear and relevant. Even if I don't remember specific terms, she was incredibly effective at communicating different concepts in a way that was easy to grasp. Social psych will change the way you move through the world. Take this class!

Cindy is by far my favorite professor on campus. She is engaging and funny. Both of her social psych classes have completely changed the way I think about the world, and she is a wonderful mentor. She is always busy, but that is because she is too wonderful, so she is in high demand.

I adore Cindy. The class is difficult, but she explains the concepts well and is always more than happy to go over something again if you don't understand it. So understanding one-on-one. Talk to her and she will help you.

Best class I've ever taken - brilliant professor and awesome material (social psych). This class should be required of all OC students. Exams are based on real-life situations - even they are kind of fun!

Good professor, especially after DeWinstanley. Her exam was fair and true to the ideas covered. She's an interesting lecturer and covers really cool stuff in the few lectures she is able to give. I would love to take more classes with her.

She's a pretty good prof. Her lectures were very interesting, and when you came to her for help, she'd be a bit snippy but in the end she'd help. Her exam was easy enough (if you studied for it). She restored my faith in PSYC 100 after the train wreck that was Patty DeWinstanley.

Cindy Frantz is one of the most amazing psych professors and people in general. She's ridiculously clear during lectures, very helpful, and really fun to talk to. I adore her! Taking a class with her should become a new requirement. :-)

I must have taken 8 or so classes with Cindy and she's just fantastic. A really tremendous person with a passion for teaching and a refreshing, progressive way of approaching serious academic study. Very intelligent, available during office hours and over email, great research topics, extremely collaborative. A.

I had her for part of psych 100, social psych, and her seminar in social conflict. She is awesome and kind. I still use social psych all the time. It's not even my major and it's the class that had the greatest impact on me.
