Comment:
I really liked Dr. Arke's Media Matters class. There were a good bit of papers, but definitely not more than any other writing class. He's a pretty easy grader if you pay attention to his feedback. There was a lot of class discussion, and I feel like I actually learned a lot.

Dr. Arke is a great guy, super nice , but unfortunately has a very boring class style and uninteresting lectures. He is a tough grader on papers and you have to study for tests or you wont pass. Tests are hard and cumulative.

Dr. Arke was a kind and funny person, and was pretty easygoing. There were quizzes after each reading, so make sure you do the readings. There were 3 presentations, with 2 being group presentations. The peer reviews were helpful, and he gives a lot of feedback. Study guides for midterm and final. Participate in class, study, and read. 10/10 class.

Comment:
Dr. Arke is certainly well experienced and his Newswriting class has a lot of great connections to the real world of journalism, however it is hard to get on his good side. He is very stern and can be easily angered, especially during the television unit. Overall you can learn a lot from him, but he is definitely very dry.

He is a personable professor who makes you work for your grade. He always reached out to the individuals in my class and asked for feedback constantly. He does grade tough, so you have to put effort into his class and focus on what he personally wants. He does meet outside of class and is super understanding though!

Doesn't give much project information and just expects you to know how to do things. Has berated students in front of the whole class. Has refused to meet with students outside of class.

Lecture heavy but open to suggestions. He is the liaison for student athletes and understands if you are late to class due to practice (I had practice 6-8 am and his class was an 8 am). He can be a tough grader, but it's all constructive criticism that is helpful.

Dr. Arke is an awesome guy. Slightly dorky and lectures can be a little bland, but knows his stuff and wants you to succeed. Not the easiest grader, but if you do the work it really isn't hard to get an A or A-. Definitely would take again, he's open to criticism and does his best to teach in the most effective way possible.

He's a great professor, and he's a wonderful man. Dr. Arke's approval doesn't come easy, and his temper is quick- usually understandable. Goes above and beyond to defend student media and mentor. Awkwardly hysterical and fairly entertaining lecturer. Very intelligent, represents all view points- devil's advocate. Get to know Dr. Arke. He's a great.

Dr. Arke can come across boring or a little dry, but give him a chance. The more you get to know him, the more you love him. He's not the easiest grader, but in order to get a good grade, you need to know the information and earn it. He is willing to meet with students and help them out. He's let me into courses and has been a great guide. love him

Dr. Arke is an excellent communications professor. He is a fair grader and his test and assignments are not too easy but not too difficult. If you listen in class, hand in work on time (diligently completed), and do what your supposed to do, you will not have any problems. He is willing to help you and makes the class interesting most of the time.

He is very helpful in answering all of your wonders and questions. For the clas, there is a research paper which is 35% of the total grade. Others are mainly tests about chapters in book and personal reason. He is a rather tough grader because he teaches journalism so he has a high requirement for a writing. Overall, a good professor!

He is a very tough grader. His quiz questions are often very specific and irrelevant to the subject and what you need to know about it later in life. Classes consist of reading, quiz lecture, reading, quiz, lecture. No projects and application of content other than quizzes, tests and a research paper.

Arke is great! Really knows the journalism field and is hilarious. He may seem dull but when you get to know him he's fantastic. He's a bit of a tough grader on papers.

Arke really loves what he does and teaches from the experience he's had in the field as well as his knowledge as a professor. Plus, Sports Broadcasting was the best class ever.

While monotonous, Arke is a very nice professor, and he is very knowledgeable about his subject- he's willing to help and clarify as much as you need and he's very fair with grading- is not afraid to be corrected either if he makes a mistake. Has available office hours for extra assistance. I would recommend taking him for any class :)

Prof Arke is very very nice. His lectures are very long and dry and hard to stay awake in but he is fair and cares about his students. Try not to take a Tuesday-Thursday class with him because it's long and incredibly boring. Overall, though, he gives an easy A if you show up and can take tests on common sense.
