Comment:
Just an awful teacher. He is unclear, and unhelpful. If you ask a question in class, chances are you will end up more confused than when you started. Do yourself a favor and don't take this professor.

Comment:
If you truly want to understand how our government works, take this class. You do have to study for the blue books, but he begins the lecture for each blue book by giving you the exact questions he may ask. No surprises! He lectures on each question & provides guidance on what he is looking for in the exam. Don't miss any classes. Hard A, EZ B

Comment:
Dr. Safford is a highly erudite philosopher and is genuinely STILL interested in the subject and how it affects the world we live in. For most, his classes can be a bit "sadistic." In his class you WILL work. You WILL study. You will be stressed to no end. But, you WILL LEARN! He is always available and immediately responds to emails.

Comment:
Dr. Safford is one of the best teachers of philosophy 102. Many people find the class very hard but the effort will pay off if you push through. Dr. Safford really knows the material and often gives you extra background information when you ask him a question. He has geared the class toward us who have to work and attend school. He is quite funny.

Comment:
I love this class. Dr. Safford is a super intelligent man. He is very demanding, but if you have the right attitude, you will not only learn the material, but you will also have knowledge that will go with you no matter what field you enter. He does help if you ask for it, but he doesn't GIVE you the answer. You have to find it.

Comment:
Dr. Safford has a tough rep, but he just demands that his students EARN their grade. I was afraid to take his course, but it turned out to be one of the best I have ever had. He's always willing to help and likes it when people utilize his office hours if you have questions, just make sure you go in prepared and know what you want to ask.

It is interesting to read what has been written about Dr. Safford. I found him to be very helpful when taking his class. He is demanding; people need to realize that they are now taking college level courses. Freshmen - what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger!

Give the guy a break. He tries very hard. He is very difficult, but if you do your work, then you will come out with tons of new knowledge. I like Dr. Safford a lot.

Dr. Safford is sooo hard, he has one of the most demanding classes and workload. Two books are required for this class, one he doesnt go by and the other he wrote. he responds to question by talking in circles....AGGERVATING...Wouldnt take again unless i absolutely had too.

Comment:
I am going to be uber unpopular for saying this but I loved his class. It was super demanding, but really taught me alot. I think this was the most useful class I have taken to date. though, it is not a class for the casual student. If you take his classes, be ready to study and to learn. Especially in the papers. He demands the best from you.

Comment:
Dr.Safford was not helpful at all. When you asked for futher explanation, it just made matters worse. He rambles on about things that aren't important and has very messy handwriting so it's difficult to take notes. He doesn't go by the book HE chose to use, so it's pointless to read it.

dr. safford is difficult to understand, and at times, his lectures make no sense at all. he is a total perfectionist. once, we were supposed to write as best as we could this short brief. i wrote it word for word and he still counted off.
