Comment:
Relational comm is one of my favorite courses I've taken from Bill. It's his pet subject, so you really get to see the passion he has for the topic, and you learn a lot about yourself and the relationships you have.

Comment:
Strom claims to be fun and upbeat, but his classes are beyond boring. You can learn everything from the slides that he uploads (which have terrible formatting), but most information is just common sense with a fancy new term to give you something to memorize. He marks very hard and weighs assignments differently than he tells you on the rubric.

Comment:
I thought that this public speaking class would be an easy A but it is in fact not. Unless you wish to dedicate your life, soul, and time to this class you won't get an A. The class average for the midterm was 68% and he said he only reserves 'A's' for those going above and beyond. Not worth the time and effort and not that helpful for life.

Comment:
all we did in that class was give speeches. he also required us to pay for a $180 text book (thats how much mine was used) and we opened it once, when i tried to sell it back to the book store they offered me seven dollars. he will also likely show you his disturbing ventriloquism without a puppet, stay away

Comment:
Bill was an awesome prof, I really respect him. His course load is pretty light, however take these assignments seriously as they are each weighted heavily. He gives plenty of opportunity for personal insight in his paper and is a fair marker. Using scripture and references from the book gets you a good mark. For exams, study the terminology!

He's an awesome professor. You can tell he knows his material inside and out. Out of all of our COMM profs he is the most organized and whose classes go the smoothest. He presents his material clearly and is obviously passionate about it. Great social skills (obviously), fair grader and a really enjoyable class overall.

Comment:
Took public speaking with him. He is a nice man who will help you if you need it. But extremely hard marker. Tells you what he wants but if you don't do it perfectly he slashes your grade. Very dry and boring information. I suggest not taking this class with him unless you are a great public speaker to begin with.

Strom's a decent man. Yes, his jokes are corny, but at least he's trying to entertain the class. If you don't read the book, you can still get a C plus or B in his class if you participate and work hard in the group stuff.

I think Strom is the best prof ever, I don't see how he has a dry sense of humor I think he's rather nice. As for you guys who didn't like him what you put into the class is what you get out of it, so obviousely you don't know what you're talking about.

This was one class I didn't hesitate to skip. If you took any sort of high school communications class you could get by in this class. Although his cheesy jokes are somewhat amusing, there was really not much that could be had from his dry sense of humor and teaching style.

dry enough to cause jealousy in a desert... also, unchallenging... part of the reason why I changed my major.

What can I say? He's overly conservative, and far too legalistic. He can teach and everything, but I don't share many of his views.

If you're older than, say 17, you probably have enough life experience to never read the text books. Basic concepts in the first year are reitereated throughout the next three.
