Loved having Professor Griffis, just an overall fantastic teacher. His lectures are very long and have a lot of information in them, but they are easy to follow and he keeps them interesting with telling personal stories. Wish I could've met him in person. Would 100% recommend to take any of his classes.

Professor Griffis is very helpful and understanding! Lectures have a ton of information in them, but he tells personal stories through out so they don't get too boring. WATCH THE LECTURES and follow along with the notes or you will fail the class. Especially watch and go through his reviews for tests, those were SUPER helpful. Overall great teacher

Mr. Griffis is awesome. He gives review sessions prior to his tests and it really helps. He is lecture heavy, but explains things thoroughly. His stories are funny. I really like him and would definitely take him again!

Professor Griffis is such an amazing guy, hes so funny. He really wants to see all his students succeed, hes always accessible and willing to help. If you have the option to take him I highly recommend it, science has always been my worst subject and he made it so easy to understand.

Honestly dont see why everyone hypes him up. He isnt horrible, but hes one of those teachers who thinks their class is most important or the only one youre taking. Hes a funny guy and makes it interesting. Theres a lot of tests that are long. Homework was easy BUT there was a ton of it. Go over note packets before each test and you will do ok

Prof. Griffis was an extremely knowledgeable and caring for his students. His lectures are packed with information but without it feeling overwhelming. Always has a funny story too. PERFECT class for a non major bio student

I took this as a six week summer course, so it was a little more challenging. He keeps the lectures interesting! I was never good at Biology but this class definitely an easy A if you do the work. He reviews for every test and has fill-in notes for lectures. Labs are easy and there is one group lab report, DO THE ROUGH DRAFT!! Otherwise, he's great

Was a great teacher. He use to do some conservation work in college and talks about growing up on the farm. He uses his life experience as comparisons and was really easy to understand. Didnt do much review before tests, so be prepared!

Best teacher for this course by far. His lecutes are basically the test itself. He gives you ALL the tools to pass with an A. He is extremely helpful in Labs and makes sure that you leave his class knowing exactly what to do on homework assignments and tells you exactly what to study for his tests. Super laid back, hilarious, and genuinely cares!!!

Mr. Griffis was an amazing teacher. I had him for a 6 week summer class! If I could take all of his classes I would, he made learning super easy. He is very lecture heavy but gives breaks. A HUGE PLUS is he gives out lecture notes and all you have to do is fill in blanks. Use your notes to study for test!

Mr Griffis was great! His lectures were long at time but they are available outside of class. He assigns chapters in the textbook to read but I rarely used it. He has a lot of humor he throws in and makes what you learn easy to remember.

Professor Griffis is the best science teacher I've ever had! I've been afraid of science courses since high school, but he truly helped me understand biology. His notes are very clear, and the tests are pretty word-for-word, and when there is a question that's obvious, he makes the wrong answers very obvious.

His real-world observations make the topics understandable, and the long lectures go by fast with his humor. He's always willing to help. Very clear expectations on labs and projects. Before every test, the class plays a review game for extra credit. I'm not a Biology major, but I still think his class was extremely fascinating and fun!

Biology is an OK subject, but he made it really entertaining. The class focuses more on lectures than lab. Take GOOD notes and study, so getting an A will be no problem. He literally tells you what is on the test after each note packet is complete. I work and go to school. This worked for me.

Griffis is one of those teachers whose name you just remember. He is incredibly funny, but also knows his stuff and will also throw in little interesting bits of info during the lecture. That along with the humor makes his lectures easy to survive, and I had 3 hour 15 minute lectures with him. He also gives plenty of extra credit.

Love this guy! Super funny and passionate. I had him for bio 151 and I had no trouble with exams or homework. He enjoys what he does and makes sure you enjoy it, too. Lots of exams, but it's better because if we had less & larger ones, it'd be very, very difficult.

Professor Griffis is one of the best teachers I have had so far. He is clear about what is expected and gives extensive study guides that outline exactly what will be on the tests. You do need to go to class in order to pass. He has an excellent sense of humor and makes long lectures seem shorter than they are. Definitely recommend his classes!
