Comment:
Dr. Galbus Kiesel is a great professor. She is understanding and really wants you to ask questions so you can better understand the material. Be ready to read, she gives little pop quizzes over the material you were supposed to read for homework to make sure you did it. Also be ready to write, lots of papers and writing. Tough but great teacher.

Comment:
Kiesel is ALL about herself. When she would discuss the readings, she would go off on a tangent about herself. You will know her better than the book. Completely self absorbed. She is a very tough grader, she is solely focused on word count and does not give good feedback about content. At least 3 readings and a 200+ word response due each class

She's a very nice person and cares about what she does. When I took her Brit-Lit class participation was such a large portion of our grade and this really affected me. If you are not one to enjoy classes that treat you like you are still in high school by a "the students doing the talking" this professor is not for you.

The first time i met Dr. Galbus, i was like "here we go." She is a tough professor, but you can easily get an A by reading, coming to class, and doing the homework. I was one of 3 people in a class of 20 to get an A, and those were my keys to success. ASK for help if needed. She is very intelligent and WILL help you. Do your part, and an A is easy

Dr. Galbus is a great professor, and I really enjoyed her 205 class. I was able to get extra feedback on my assignments if I wanted, and she was always willing to take the time to help me out. She will not hold your hand though. You have to read what's assigned, and be ready to participate.

Comment:
Dr. Galbus is definitely not the easiest professor, but you will without a doubt learn something from her. As long as you go to class and do the readings, the class is not ridiculously hard. She doesn't hold students' hands; she actually makes you learn something.

Dr. Galbus is a tough professor, but she challenges you and makes you think deeper. I didn't like her at first, but as the semester went on I started appreciating how difficult she was. I've probably grown more as an English Teaching major with her class than I have almost any other professor. 10/10 will for sure take again.

Only two options for this particular semester were to take the class at either 7:30am or 9am. She's very chipper and ready to teach, but classes aren't that interesting.

Dr. Galbus is an amazingly resilient woman with a wonderfully large and compassionate heart- and she's incredibly intelligent! I loved just listening to her, because I knew my worldview grew each day just listing to hers. If you need help, she is definitely there for you, but don't just expect it- ask! Changed how I view the world in some ways.

Comment:
Dr. Galbus is a wonderful person and is EXTREMELY SMART. I felt like I was getting smarter by listening to her and she makes class fun and interesting but she is a hard grader. She expects you to write your papers like she would which is impossible. I got all As on my papers in high school and thought I was a good writer, but I got Bs from her.

Dr. Galbus is an incredibly insightful teacher. She is fair to all students who put forth the effort. Exceptional teacher! I loved the way she spoke her mind and allowed you to do the same with no consequences. I loved her class, you just have to be prepared to work.

This was a great class! I really enjoy Mrs. Galbus' classes. She is so smart and I gain so much from her classes. Some people don't like her but she is a great professor and always willing to help. She is also really funny!

Dr. Galbus was my all-time favorite professor for my first semester. She is a thorough teacher, and though it is a difficult class, she is extremely helpful and encouraging. She pushes you to be better than you were. She speaks intelligently and is extremely interesting. I would recommend her to anyone taking ENG 201.

She is a very good teacher when it comes down to a Junior to Senior level. Her grades are all over the place, they are never consent and she doesn't post grades. If you don't do so good on a test, but do really good on in class short essays and extra credit assignments and ask about your grade mid way she bases it off of that one bad test.

I absolutely loved her class. She is so helpful and she uses so many metaphors that make things so much more clear. She is funny and always willing to help you if you have questions. She's an incredibly smart lady and she really taught me alot!

I don't know why anyone would think this class is hard. She practically gave us every test question before the midterm and final. As long as you read the material the class is cake. I'm not an English major. So anyone who says this class is hard, and you're majoring in English, I suggest you reconsider.

She's a hard professor and she demands excellence and high performance. But trust me, it's worth it! I loved this class. A lot of work, but you'll actually learn something. Don't take this class if you want something to just skate through, but if you want to learn its great!

Very interesting person, personality wise and teaching wise. A LOT of reading, at least one story assigned per class. Test are difficult and you have to read EVERY story and study to expect a passing grade. But I appreciate that because slackers shouldn't get the same grade as people who try.

I'm actually surprised by any negative comments about Dr Galbus. She is a wonderful instructor and a very sweet person! Her midterm and final was hard but only if you didn't do any of the readings. If you skip a lot, DO NOT take this class as the class discussions are key!
