I've taken two classes with her now and she's absolutely amazing, maybe my favorite professor at Hamilton. She cares more about whether you're learning than giving you actual letter grades.

Comment:
Grades essays very hard, and rewrites never improve a full letter grade (and rewrites and original grade are averaged together). Class was extremely boring and she didn't make enough effort to push the conversation forward, leading to long, awkward silences. Some books were enjoyable, others were not great reads.

Prof. Thickstun is tough, but she's got a really quirky sense of humor that makes the class fun. However, if you're not interested in the subject of the course, you'll hate it. For interested students, she's a joy to have. Approachable, extremely willing to help, and an all around nice person.

Comment:
She really knows her stuff and she is very enthusiastic. When getting feedback on draft essays, she will point out postives and negatives as expected, but when you fix them for the final draft, she will tear the paper to shreads, bringing up new negatives not mentioned earlier. She's a great professor but a very VERY tough grader.

Margie is great. Classes are very laid back but she expects a lot on essays. Take advantage of writing center and even more so her office hours to go over drafts.

She seems okay in class, but I can't get a flippin' A on any paper. When I go to talk to her about my papers, she gives me really convoluted and weird answers, if you could call them answers.

a rediculous grader... her classes are easy and not too much work (alot of reading), but you will NEVER get an A on an essay no matter how hard you try
