Excellent Prof.! I have taken 2 classes with him and he truly loves what he does. I learned a lot and didn?t mind attending class. 2nd year class: I found that the workload was fair. Study for the test! I also had a seminar and he is great with upper year students. Put in the time, show genuine interest and your grade reflects it nicely.

Amazing professor. Truly cares about his students, and about the world we live in. Passionate, enthusiastic, and an amazing scholar. Tries to spark an interest of learning in his students which is admirable. More professors should take note of this dynamic individual.

Excellent Professor. I am taking two more courses with him next term. He really cares about your progress and even about you, that is, your personal life,etc. He remarked my essay and gave me an extra 7 percent! Great guy. Just keep up with the readings and you'll do fine.

Very inspirational Prof. Even though I didn't do as well, I quite enjoyed the class; it made me want to attend. I could have done better, but my procrastination skills slowed me down. Prof. Westhues has the ability to take a dry subject and turn it into something intriguing using examples and stories and allegories that affect our everyday lives.

Love Westhues. That said, this course is worth-taking on the merits of its content alone. As newbies to the working world most students don't really understand how powerless we've become in the work world. This course illustrates that clearly. The text is great. It's harder to do well in SOC 241 compared to his SOC 101, but you can still get +80%.

he insists on being called 'mr' and will address you in the same fashion. doesn't that say it all? AND remembers everyone's names w/o name tags! =) really cares about people; you can tell by the engaging lectures he prepares, the open discussion environment he fosters...and the readings are WORTH READING. put time into his courses & you'll love it

Comment:
Surprisingly interesting and throught provoking class. Assigned textbook reading and articles were much more interesting than I assumed, and held great "means something" today value, instead of assigning theory which is what was assumed for a class like this. Really showed a great care for students and care for students opinions and thoughts.

The most unique and wonderful professor I have ever had the privilege of being a student of. I took Soc 101 with him after taking an arts 199 seminar with him. He treats you with respect and teaches real world lessons. If you're interested in learning by something other than the book, take his class. Thanks for everything, Mr. Westhues!
