I took classes from Mr. Miller in 1983-84. I learned so much him. He's was a very nice guy, very knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher.

Professor Miller was very knowledgeable and was always willing to help, encourage, and share his know-how with his students. His allowing students the freedom to create original design work, with his guidance, was a very valuable experience. I'm glad I took the class.

Comment:
Alan Miller has to be the worst design teacher at SDSU. I swear, I came out of this class with nothing to show and it was way too easy. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT get into a conversation with him or ask him something as you will be spending the next 30 minutes talking about god knows what, mostly Brazil. Look elsewhere or take a more challenging class

Comment:
I am usually a positive and outgoing person, but Alan Miller brings me down every time I attend his class because it feels like such an utter waste of one's life to be in his presence. He talks incessantly about anything and everything BUT the class. He shows up 30-45 minutes late. He answers non-pertinent cell phone calls in the middle of class.

I got some good work to use in my portfolio. You usually never stay the entire class time, just get signed off on work. Easy grader. Don't get into a conversation with him - HE WILL GO ON FOREVER!

Waste of time completly, no feedback from teacher, talks about random irrelevant stuff most of the time (e.g. his children), I regret taking him for the second semester in a row.

He's willing to help and will stay after class. VERY long winded. Goes off on irrelevant tangents. Felt that some of his design preferences were out-of-date. I learned some interesting new techniques, but will not take another class with him again.
