Comment:
Extremely intelligent never uses lecture notes he's studied in Europe and can give accurate descriptions of places. Does not have unreasonable expectations just wants college level work & tells you what to know for quizzes, essays are easy as well. He will answer specific questions but wont proof read your papers. I liked him & learned a lot.

Dr. Nash has interesting lectures and knows a lot but doesn't know how to make quizzes or assignments. Only 25 question quizzes on extremely little details that he never mentioned at all. I'm a freshman with a 3.7 GPA last semester, and this class is really going to pull my GPA down. He's not helpful with what he expects so you just have to guess.

Incredibly easy lecture class. Two quizzes, a "paper", and a final exam. I literally didn't open the textbook once.

Comment:
a nice old guy who kind of reminds me of my grandfather. he knows a lot of history but remember to sit in the front, you can barely hear him in the second row. multiple choice test (2) are so so if you read and go over your notes just like the midterm and the final. the paper is hard but can be done. not an easy or hard class but he knows his stuff

Comment:
Mr. Nash is a very smart man but it is the most boring class i have ever endured. Nothing he says in lecture is ever on the quizzes and half the time the readings from the textbook don't correlate with what we are learning. The final paper has no direct prompt and is impossible due to the fact you pretty much have to guess what he wants.

Nash is awesome. Old school, southern style, and extremly knowledgable on the content. He calls out roll every class just like high school. As long as you study fairly often and read you'll be fine. Great class

Comment:
Dr. Nash was wonderful. I'm fairly good at history and I just showed up to his classes and got an A. Even though he said we would need to read to do well, I never opened the book, just took lecture notes. He was very funny, cared about the content, and really knew what he was talking about. Solid teacher. Made a gened interesting.

Comment:
I have a great gpa and I'm going to get a C in this class because it is so hard. It is a freshman level course and it is harder than my upper level courses. You have to be interested in wars and love to read every night. Also you only have 2 quizzes, a midterm writing assignment, an analytical paper, and a final writing assignment.

Comment:
He knows everything about history. He's not really clear on what he wants on his test or quizes, except for "everything we covered". like history, and I liked this class. It's a full lecture and he stands at the front of the class for the entire time. No extra credit. He also doesn't explain what he wants on the final paper. I liked him though!

Comment:
Nash is so adorable and funny, but this class is no joke. The tests are pretty difficult and he doesn't ever really tell you what he wants in the writings. It's honestly just a hit or miss with him. But he is the biggest wealth of knowledge I've ever crossed paths with. If you really want to learn, take him. If you want an easy A, don't.

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. He's a tough grader and only has a few grades for the semester. His class is all lecture and some book, but his lectures are hard to stay awake it. He can sometimes be funny but he's overall really hard and unclear about assignments.

HARD. don't take if you don't want to put work into it. 5 grades, 2 quizzes worth 25%, midterm writing exercise worth 25%, analytical paper worth 25%, and final writing exercise worth 25%. very interesting class, straight lectures, allows 6 absences, just a very tough grader. he knows his history though.

Comment:
Very cool guy. His class consists of lecture, and reading from the textbook. If you really enjoy listening to military exploits throughout history, this is your man. I loved going to class. He cracks jokes in a very unique, mature way and they came off hilarious to my class. Two 2-page essays, a few quizzes and a midterm and an exam. Take him.

The class starts real slow, but he loves the World Wars. Once you hit there, it gets very interesting. He knows so much about them. Attendance is required, but he takes "I was sick" as an excused absence. It is all lecture and reading (not much though). The quizzes can be tough, but the writings aren't bad. He makes a hilarious joke every class.

Comment:
Professor Nash is a good professor but his lectures are very long and he sometimes goes off on tangents. In a whole semester we only covered from the industrial revolution to WWII, when we were supposed to get to the end of the cold war and then discuss current issues. His grading on papers is somewhat unclear and he grades like its a writing class

Comment:
The beginning of the semester was really boring. However, once he started lecturing (it's 100% lecture) about topics that interested him the class was extremely interesting. Make sure you read the textbook because he only covers certain topics in class. The class isn't extremely difficult, just show up and pay attention, he's very old-school

Okay everyone keeps saying this class is hard but here's the trick. Go to class and literally...write down EVERYTHING HE SAYS. Then memorize it, and you're golden. It wasn't that hard for me to remember the stuff cause I like history. But people keep failing his tests and papers when all you have to do on them is regurgitate what he says in class.

I loved him. I actually looked forward to his class. His classes are ALL lecture and he takes history from a mostly military standpoint. I think it was because he was a Colonel in the army. Anyways, there are only three papers (one page) and two tests. He doesn;t give any guidance on papers though. Overall, the class is an easy A or B.

Nash is extremely boring! the only grades are 3 papers, which he never tells you anything about, and a midterm/final, both which he gives almost no information about. I wouldnt recommend this class.
