Comment:
Marguerite is a perfectly fine professor--but a truly awful advisor. She has very little concern for her advisees and fails to provide much in the way of academic support. Take classes with her, but if she's your advisor, apply for a new one.

Comment:
Great teacher! Less reading than other classes, but had great discussions where we deeply dived into the readings. Expects a lot of her students, but not unrealistically. Encourages you to do your best. Passionate and knowledgable. Class was challenging and fun. I would definitely recommend studying with her if you get the chance.

Comment:
She is absolutely horrible. Worst class I have ever taken. She targets individuals in class and is extremely rude. There is no use going to her for extra help because she will only insult you. Do not take a class with her if you want to further yourself as a student or learn new material.

She is incredibly smart and sharp. I feel lucky to have taken a class with her, and she is always available to meet outside of class and give students feedback. She is also very intuitive, and extremely passionate about literature and languages. Her classes encouraged me to produce my best work, without exception.

Comment:
I got a marginal pass in her class and she's not my advisory, but she is one of my favorite professors. I love how excited she is about what she teaches and she really wants everyone to do well. I am going to improve my writing and take another class with her because I know she wants to see me succeed.

Comment:
There is no other more worthy of praise. How lucky I was to study with her. I will never forget her fierceness, intuition and love of the work. Some say she is critical, and for that she ought to be commended. She asks for the best and pulls greatness where greatness is to be found. I miss her much.

Marguerite's incredibly sharp intelligence is intimidating at first, but really she is very kind and supportive. She is also incredibly eloquent and focused.

Comment:
Art of Portraiture is a paradigm-shifting course for those interested in the articulation of character, personality, idenity, etc, in visual arts, and, more importantly, how one can incorporate concepts in visual art in one's writing. Marguerite has obvious passion for this subject, and is highly engaging.

Marguerite is an amazing professor and person whose intelligence amazes me regularly. She is understanding along with open to hear about you, not just in the context of her course, but in your everyday struggles. She truly cares about her students and their well being while encouraging them to study what they love, literature or not.

A real monster. Childish and insults her students. Vindictive and egar to assert power over others. Only open to her own opinion.

A professor with a cult of women followers. Sometimes too heavy handed. A smart lady. Good with written assignment feedback. Supports most students in class. Sometimes plays favorites.
