Comment:
Friar Tamburello is a very nice professor. This class requires a lot of reading then discussion of that reading. You definitely need to have done the readings for the 3 tests, which are 2 short essay questions and a full essay. The grades on your tests are subjective and you dont have a clear criteria as to why you received that grade.

Comment:
I had Father Dennis for German, and I was not incredibly impressed. I think his knowledge of the language is far too in depth to be teaching a foundational course, as he would often get frustrated when we were not fully clear on the basics. He missed a lot of classes, and gave us a lot of leeway with our grade.

Comment:
Father Dennis is a really good guy who tried his best to make class interesting. However, he would always go off on tangents and sometimes his assignments were confusing. Class would go by slow but it's not totally his fault. Out of the religion teachers he's probably the best so take him

Best professor at Siena, and an amazing man in general. Every student should make it an effort to at least meet Father Dennis during their time there.

Such a nice guy! Good sense of humor and entertaining teacher. He keeps track of who participates, so try to say something every class even if it's a little off base. A few readings for each class but nothing unmanageable. Midterm and final which he gives you a study guide for. 5pg paper on a movie, very easy. Take him!!!!

He is the best teacher I had for my FYS. Was not strict with paper due dates and was always able to give you feedback on your writing. He understand how students are feeling throughout the semester.

Father D is the man. The class material is the class material but the way he presents it is clear and you'll know exactly what he expects of you. Easy grader and a great all around guy. TAKE HIS CLASS

Fr. D is a nice guy. Very enthusiastic about the topics so class is fun. However, it is hard to get an A. He gives out B's all over the place, but rarely higher. A lot of reading and the tests are pretty hard. I had a 4.0 before I took him but I could only get a B+.

I am so glad I met Fr. D. He was my Foundations teacher, relgious studies teacher, and advisor. He is so helpful and caring. He is very energetic about the subjects he teaches and is a very understanding professor. Unfortunatly im not to into religious studies, but If I were I would take everyone taught by him ;-)

Fr. Dennis is great. He's incredibly lenient and understanding when it comes to assignments. He's a fair grader but it's hard to get an A in his class. I highly recommend him for any religion course.

Fr Dennis is a great guy, who is always looking out for students. Tends to be a little self-centered and requires a lot of reading. Quizzes are easy, exam tests are hard. However, he does offer make ups.Go to office hours for help. Take this class only if you have a past knowledge of religious thought

I think Fr. Dennis is a great teacher, however this class might not be the right one to take with him. He's willing to help and is always trying to have the class participate, but he talks alot and often confuses the students. He keeps the class the entire time or even a bit later than scheduled.

I heart Father Dennis. Such a nice guy and good teacher! If you have upper level Religion credits, take a class with him. You won't regret it! However, he grades a little tough, but hey, its college. Definitely one of the best professors at this campus. TAKE HIM NOW!!!!!!!

Great guy who is sincere and caring.Very understanding when it comes to assignments being due. Hard to get an A on an assignment because I get the feeling he sees B s and B+ s as excellent. Always willing to help you in any way he can, whether it is school related or not. Take him.
