Comment:
Took Prof. Callaway's Old Testament class for my sacred texts requirement, would not recommend for a core class. Very tough grader and often gives unclear and ambiguous feedback, but is very knowledgeable ab the OT and also pretty funny. Would be a great prof for theo majors, but not for core. Light on work, but harsh grading for papers and exams.

Comment:
My friend had her for a dif class and said it was amazing. This class was NOT it. She is SO nice but her grading is tough. The one pagers are 1.5 spaced. A lot of history. She seems to be a prof that thinks a B is an amazing grade. I would take her for a different course (aka the good reviews) but I unfortunately did not enjoy this one.

Professor Callaway is amazing. She runs a discussion-based class and encourages students to participate. I love her teaching style so muchI really feel like I connected to the texts. She gives amazing feedback on papers and makes her expectations clear for exams. If you have the chance, definitely take a class with Professor Callaway!

Professor Callaway is knowledgeable about the Old Testament and the kindest professor. Learned a lot about the OT that made the class really interesting. The microtheme grading was pretty fair in my opinion, and both of the exams have a study guide identical to the test. Would highly recommend especially for a core requirement.

Callaway knows her stuff, but that makes her a really harsh grader on papers and microthemes. She's super clear about what she wants from you on the midterm exam, so study and you'll do well. She always offers opportunity to revise your work and improve your grade, and is always available for office hours to help with whatever you need.

Comment:
Insanely hard grader on 8 micro-themes and 1 paper worth 25% of your grade. She's very intelligent but expects us all to teach her something new about the Old Testament which is nearly impossible so unless you're willing to devout your whole life to this one class do not expect an easy A. The midterm + final are long and require lots of writing

Comment:
She was a really hard grader which was extremely frustrating. You have to write 8 one-paged "microthemes" for the class and it was almost impossible to get higher than an 8/10. She was super nice and cared about the class and knew her stuff, but also made the midterm and final really long and hard. Overall I liked her, but you have to work hard

Mary Callaway is a legend. She teaches by asking questions and encouraging you to come up with meaningful and well informed answers. She runs an engaging and relaxed classroom, and her assignments are geared toward your freedom. For example, a good chunk of the grade comes from writing 8 micro essays, but you have dozens of options to choose from.

Comment:
One of my fav profs at Fordham. SO smart. Wasn't looking forward to taking this cause I'm not religious but she taught the Old Testament as stories, not religion so it was very interesting. 8 one page papers throughout but super easy. Actually made me enjoy the Bible which I wasn't expecting. She always held my attention and is so kind and caring.

Dr. Callaway is a passionate, Knowledgable, and caring professor. Her lectures are incredibly interesting, and her class isn't too hard, but she grades papers and micro-themes toughly. She does however allow revisions on the papers, and gives really good feedback on it. She will make you want to continue classes in theology, even as a finance major

Took her for Into to old testament. She was okay. Made you write 8 1 page responses for the whole semester. Readings you should do because they will help you in class and finals. I stopped reading because I already knew about the Bible and I got a B+ on the Midterm. Grading, maybe kind of hard, the usual.

She's really nice and willing to help if you go to her office hours. However, yes, she's quite a tough grader. She's very specific and wants it done her way. I feel like I never really got to know her personally, though. Kind of removed and forgetful about individual students.

She's knowledgable and can make any class exciting, even when it's on the Old Testament, which is often considered dry subject material. Yes, she is a tough grader, but her assignments are not difficult; for example, you might wind up with a B+ when you figured you earned an A. She can be funny and makes you think. No complaints here.

Dr. Callaway is the most influential professor I've taken at Fordham. She is willing to help you do well in the class if you feel you are struggling. Read the book and do the papers and she will give you a good grade. She gives you the exam questions before the test. This class could have been boring, but this down to earth kind soul made it fun!

Professor Callaway is one of the most delightful people at Fordham. Her class on the Old Testament, which had the potential to be incredibly boring, was one of the most interesting classes I have taken at Fordham. She is a tough grader, so be prepared to do the work, but it never feels like a chore because she makes the OT interesting.

Dr. Callaway is a very kind woman, but as a professor she can feel a little removed and intimidating. Her class is sort of dry and uninteresting. The readings are not long but are constant. A VERY VERY HARSH grader, on papers and exams. I personally think the class is not worth taking, but she is worth getting to know.

Professor Callaway's Ancient Literature course was my favorite class this semester. She is very engaging and passionate about her students. The class is very reading-intensive, but the discussions in class makes doing the reading worthwhile. She is a tough grader on her tree open-topic papers, but she will let you re-write the if you don't do well.

Sweetest thing. She is a tough grader, but she will let you rewrite things. we had 2 exams with a few papers. she wants you to ask questions and participate and loves those who do. i would recommend giving her drafts and still rewriting it. she gives you study guides for the exams which you have to know inside and out. go to her. sweetest thing!

She is extremely nice and understanding to the fact that students have a lot going on. She definitely LOVES students who go to her office hours. That being said, the class is HARD. I'm not a theology major, but I had some knowledge prior to the course. I struggled to get a B. She has very precise expectations and does not articulate them well.
