Comment:
Prof. Barber has been one of my favorite professors I have had at URI so far. I took his ENG383 class admits the COVID-19 pandemic, and he was always very understanding of what we as students were going through during this time. His lectures were more like discussions (which I love), and he always brought fourth a caring and positive attitude!

Such a sweet man, assignments are easy and if you take good notes, the lectures in class will literally help you write your paper. There is a lot of reading and participation matters but you will be prepared to do any assignment. I thought this class was an Easy A

A caring, gentle personality who makes everyone feel as if their opinion matters, his passion for English is contagious and inspiring. Along with being one of the nicest people I have ever met, his obvious intellect leads to interesting class discussions and different points of view being brought up. I feel lucky to have taken this class with him.

Probably the nicest professor I've ever had. He's happy with the class as long as they're engaged in the reading and participate in the discussions. You can really tell he cares about you as well as the material he teaches. Very passionate.

I would die for this man. He is not only one of the nicest professors I've ever had, but one of the kindest people. He's a little crazy but he makes class fun and he doesn't dock points for missing class.

Professor Barber is the nicest person I have ever met in my entire life. He is brilliant, and he keeps lectures interesting. He does not take attendance, but he makes you want to go. I can not say enough nice things about this man. You will learn a lot in his class without even realizing it. I highly recommend you take a course with him.

He was an incredible teacher! Obviously loves what he does. I recommend going to class because he just lectures about the readings. But he is always willing to help, and makes the material interesting and relavent. I would definitely take a class with him!

Stephen Barber is hands down the best professor I've ever experienced. His intelligence is matched by his kindness, grace, and ability to teach complicated material with ease. If you enjoy learning, do yourself a favor and take any of his courses. I absolutely love this man. You will too!

I was in the same class. We had to read seven books, not five. Way too many because they were hard. Prof Barber did a good job in explaining them but only the smartest students could understand them. He is a hard grader but an interesting teacher.

Comment:
Professor Barber is pretty much the nicest guy ever. You read around five books (he had to drop one for our class because of time constraints) and write three essays. He likes you to come to class, but if you have to miss some, he doesn't get angry or lower your grade. It's a good idea to attend, though. Do the work and you'll get a good grade.

Absolutely an amazing individual. Prof Barber is who comes to mind when someone says "ideal professor." English majors at URI are seriously missing out if they do not take a class with him. Few people come close to his level of concern for subject and students.

Stephen Barber opened a whole world of learning to me, shows great love for what he does and challenges students to be their best. He is the best professor I have ever had, is extremely bright, highly ethical and valued. I intend to take other courses with him and regard the University of Rhode Island all the more due to him. He is truly great!

The class was hard but I learned a lot! Prof. Barber works hard for each class making sure that we're all on board. Lectures and class discussion. I'll take other classes with him for sure. By the way, who ever said he's not hot is just mean and doesn't know what taste is. But so is Rate My Prof. for including this as a category.
