Comment:
I took Jane's class in the 80's. I can't remember the title of the course but it was a fascinating look at the types of literature in the Bible. Bible as Literature, I believe, was its title. I would rate Jane as one of the most memorable and thought provoking instructors I ever had, along with Willis McNelly. Absolutely amazing!!!

She's difficult, no doubt. You have to love the texts to enjoy the class. You WILL learn though. I have all kinds of personal issues with her, but very few academic complaints. Her classes were extremely valuable.

Expect to write about the text every day. Expect to get a C or less on all the work until you go to her office hours. Your opinion means nothing to her. Think like her and write your answers like she would. I pulled a B by 2/3s of the way through after going to office hours. If she likes you, you're golden. If not, enjoy your F.

Comment:
I didn't believe that all of these comments on ratemyprofessors.com could be true, but after taking her class I agree with every one of them! There was not a single lecture, discussion, or test (aside from the final exam), and although this may sound nice to some of you, TRUST ME IT'S NOT. I dreaded this class every single day, and you will, too.

Comment:
I am an easy going person by nature but when I leave that class I would like nothing more than to kick her out a window. I took this class expecting to actually learn something and for it to be a semi easy class but what I got was a nightmare where I have yet to learn anything I would not have on my own. Biggest waste of time EVER. DON'T take her!

Often has very specific requirements for written assignments which she does not always state clearly. But you get opportunities to redo some work for credit-- take them! Also a lot of in-class writing(and drawing); almost no class discussion.

Comment:
Horrible. Long-winded in class assignments with little time to work on them. Confusing to understand and please her. A LOT of in class work. Passive aggressive woman. Let's you make up work, but not helpful at all. Must throw your values out the window to get a good grade. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IT MAKES ME WANT TO DROP MY LIT. MAJOR. BLAH

Comment:
I never thought i'd create an account on this page, but she definitely inspired me to do this! Mrs. Hipolito is a difficult woman to comprehend. She seems very sweet when explains our assignments to us, and when SHE discusses the answers of our quiz questions, but when you have a question her tone completely changes, and not in a good way at all.

Comment:
Her class is impossible. You have two exercises per day which are exactly like quizzes. She tests you on the introduction to the literature you read. Tedious history information that you must memorize every detail in order to pass the quiz. You do not focus at all on the literature you read. And there are no discusses. You work alone on the quizzes

Comment:
This lady is horrible most of the time. She definitely does not like it when you have your own opinion and will definitely make you feel dumb. Go to class ALL THE TIME or you will definitely miss out. Take advantage of doing assignments over again if you can. Think like her&you'll be fine. This class was definitely the definition of hard work.

Comment:
Four words: Den Mom From Hell! She's extremely hard. Even the English majors in my class are reconsidering thier major because of her. Greek Mythology never got this hard. It's not just Comparative Lit, it's also Psychology, Philosophy, and a Art class... DON't take her!

Comment:
I read all these comments and I still took her... THE WOMAN IS UNBEARABLE! so apparently she's been a horrible teacher since 2002, that's how far the comments date back too. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN! Ok so being an English major revolves around individual interpretation and analysis, however there is only ONE and I repeat ONE correct answer in her class

Comment:
I'm a diligent student, go to class everyday. She does grade based on her own opinion, even when you write clearly and use evidence from the text to back up your points. It's week 3 of class, but I quickly learned you need to answer questions HER way to pass. To get a good grade, you'll find yourself redoing more than half of all your work.

This is one of the most dedicated instructor's I have had the priviledge to know. Yes she is hard but she is more than willing to work with anyone who asks. If you work hard, what you will get out of this class is immeasurable. Of course those who want to skate through class without learning or working should avoid her. She means to teach you!

Comment:
Bad bad professor!! You write a ton and she grades off her own opinion. If you answer something clearly with back up she will still give a bad grade if you dont answer the way she feels about the subject...even though its an opinion based paper!! she gives alot of attitude if you ask a question and is overall just ridiculous. DONT TAKE HER!!

Worst teacher ever!!!! STAY AWAY!! Gives very long confusing in-class assignments, then does not give enough time to complete! Assigns a ton of group work that you must present in front of the class. She makes you do dumb, embarrassing things like "still frames" and dumb drawings that teach us nothing about mythology. Her grading makes NO SENSE!!

Comment:
I'm here to warn anyone who is thinking about taking one of her classes. Do NOT! I should have looked her up here before I took her for a Lit/Bible class. My only tip is to ask for help and see her everyday outside of class, She loves to feel important and all-knowing. To her, she is God on Earth.

Comment:
Professor Hipolito is tough, no doubt. But get on her good side and you're in like Flynn. I didn't do much of my work this 1st 1/2 of the semester, hustled the last month, and finished w/ a B. She makes Greek Myth very interesting and knows her stuff.....but she is a bit kooky.
