Jami is so amazing! She made me laugh every class period with her sarcasm and her witty sense of humor. She is a great teacher, grades fairly and cares about all her students. Definitely worth all the reading.

Dr. Ake is the best professor I have had at WUSTL so far. She is fair and cares deeply. She gets to know all of her students on a personal level. She encourages students to disagree with her and promotes amazing discussions.

I've now taken two classes with Jami, and she really didn't disappoint. She is by far the coolest person I know, and serves not only as a role model, but also as a true mentor to those who seek her out. She's a phenomenal lecturer and overall professor and I always look forward to class or just chatting with her!

Jami awake might be the coolest person to ever walk the planet. She's an amazing instructor, underrated lay a genius, and is so passionate not only about what she does, but also about her students and making sure they succeed. Her advice and encouragement is how I discovered my passion and became a WGSS major. She's incredible.

I was told by older students that I had to take a class with her before I graduated -- and it did not disappoint. She makes you think critically about any other class you've taken/ things you think you know and is great at facilitating discussion. She genuinely cares about her students and it shows.

Ake was the best professor I have had yet at WashU. She made Shakespeare so incredibly fun (which honestly is hard). She encourages your opinions and discussion, but led most lectures. Always down to laugh, always happy, really helpful and understanding. Wants all her students to succeed which is amazing

Professor Ake is an incredible professor! I've never been interested in english, but I found myself fully interested and focused in all of our discussions! I would take a class just to have her as my professor again.

Jami Ake is basically my idol. She's a funny lecturer, extremely helpful, and generally personable and wonderful. Some people find that she's a tough grader, but I never thought her grading was anything but reasonable. Anyone and everyone should take Violence Against Women if they can-- you'll look forward to going to class.

A nice balance between lecture and discussion, I learned a lot, and the weekly quizzes weren't that bad. She's one of the few people who is simultaneously brilliant and good at teaching classes, and she actually cares about her students beyond the classroom. If you get the chance to take a class with her, DO!

If you can get into one of her classes, take it! She is probably the smartest woman you will ever meet in your life, and she's hilarious. I still stop by her office just to talk. She's extremely knowledgeable about course material and college life in general.
