Comment:
My experience with Prof Powers was very positive. While I found him to be a hard marker, it seemed that things worked out in the end. I believe he was encouraging students to work to their full potential, and perhaps, change their style to incorporate this advanced PR material. What I really liked was that he did not cater to cry babies. He is

Comment:
I found Prof. Powers to be one of the worse teachers I have ever had. He puts zero effort into his classes. He gives a heavy reading load to over compensate for lack of course substance. He must be great in the PR field because this guy is full of BS! I would personally stay away from his class if you value education.

Great prof! Lessons were well structured. If you do the work you will do really well. Not much use of coursepack as he went over readings in class. Great speakers!

This was the one class I actually wanted to get up and go to! Lectures were fun and interesting and he told it like it is. Be careful, although he is an awesome prof. he doesn't give out marks for nothing.

Tim Powers is nothing short of a God. Let's face it he is both kind and brilliant. He's plugged in and he knows how to judge talent. He told me once that I am going to be famous. And tada! I am hosting my own tv show on Bravo

I did fine in his class, but as long as you're a flighty female in love with hot guest-speakers you'll do fine in his class. Make sure to flash him smile or two...it will help, trust me.

Somewhat interesting.Too bad everything he talked about was related to the gov't.Would've been nice to hear about non-gov't PR. Upside: he had a HOT guest speaker, the one with the shaved head (Jamie Christophe?),who was press secretary for Pierre Pettigrew.VERY HOT!(Jamie...not Pierre)

A tough but fair marker. Just be sure to NEVER USE 'I' OR 'WE' ON AN EXAM/PAPER and you'll be fine. An endless array of guest speakers and opportunities to become involved in the industry. An engaging, helpful prof.-in short, a good soul.

we are lucky to have a professor like mr powers. he is a professional PR guy, so we gained practical knowledge and we learned the reasons behind why things are done the way they are in the indsutry. good guest speakers, open essay topic is great and marking is reasonable

Powers'is definitly a man of many words. PR is an awesome class, I know many of us look forward to it (either that or to the single* guest speakers he brings in). Overall: Great class with a Hot & Empowering Prof.

I disagree with those who are in love. He seems cocky and is not very helpful. The only answers are his answers, the marking is unclear and confusing. It's nice to have guest speakers though. I wish we learned more. It's true that he is funny. Overall: Ok class.

The only thing I can say about Powers is that I am totally in love with the man. His love for life and creative spirit are incredible. He is absolutely brilliant, and I love his eyes. He's super sweet and very handsome. I'm in love. :)

Prof Powers makes the boring subject of Public Relations into a fun class. He even created the analogy of the Communication's condom,which was very effective. He's also a total hottie,except for the fact that his socks didn't match one day (He has a tendency to put his legs up on the front desk)

Provides interesting look at real world examples of Public Relations, however not an engaging professor. A class that I was very much looking forward to, yet walked away from with little knowledge.
