Comment:
This man was a genius. The students who didn't understand this or his class are those who conform to conventional teaching methods and look for ways to play into the institution rather than ones that desire betterment of self and intellect. I pity them their inability to "get it" and would take Dan McGuiness a million times over.

Comment:
he was the worst teacher i have ever had in my life. he would come to class and hand us an assignment to start writing about and not explain it at all. he never handed back any papers and grades ridiculously. he will not respond to you if you try and contact him. he is awful and useless and should retire.

Nice and funny teacher. Full of irony and sarcasm. Interesting to talk to him. The best part is free topics. If he likes your choise of topic, you'll get a good great. a bit strange class and most of the times there is not a lot to do, but write papers.

I had him for my senior writing seminar and Wet Ink: Literary Magazines. Caustic, cynical, brilliant, awesome professor. If you disliked his class or didn't understand him, well, you shouldn't have been there. Great man.

Awesome teacher with a quirky sense of humor. The class itself was a breeze--no lectures, all papers, free range of paper topics. I loved it.

He was the best! You could write about whatever you want, regardless of how off the wall it is. Extremely easy. Could just walk out and he wouldn't notice. Cool guy.

NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY! you learn nothing, he never teaches, all he does is read students papers and tell stories, his papers are often very unclear and he gives you no assistance.

All you do is sit around and maybe take a nap here and there. His papers are sometimes unclear, but you'll get a B if you do it. Never any notes, tests, quizzes, or exams. I recommend taking this class if you don't like to do work.

Oh Dr McGuiness. What can i say. He is interesting. Class was cool because we never did anything. Ended up with an A-, but he grades pretty hard.

I got absolutely nothing from this class. He is knowledgable,but cynical and completely unhelpful. If you like writing about anything that matters, don't take him...ever! Worked my ass off and got a B-. This guy is a waste of time

Dr. McGuiness is a wonderful professor. He narrates entertaining stories from his past experiences. His assignment due dates are specific but sometimes the assignments can be a little unclear. He is always on campus and available for advise.

Basically, he's crazy. He does not teach at all, he cuts things out of the newspaper and makes you read and talk about them. That's fine, but not in a poetry class. He is not clear at all and does not teach at all.

Great guy, very funny, but he grades really hard, and his advice, although funny, is not all too helpful at pulling your grade up. Very hard to understand what an A-Paper consists of. Take him if you want a fun guy, but not a good grade.

excellent teacher.... can be very funny when you get to talk to him about your paper. on days when you don't have a paper due, you can sit in class and do nothing, is there anything better than that??

Great teacher, hard grader. But he lets you write about anything you want and doesn't require structured papers, so it's free write which is awesome. Def. take him.
