There's this creepy old guy in my school that not only is he the shittiest professor out there but probably a sex offender too.
I signed up for his business writing class in summer '05. There was 17 of us in that class. In the end of the summer session there were only 2 people left, and they both got Ds. Of course they were the type of students who are too proud of themselves to drop a class because of an extremely unfair and biased instructor.
He's a real pervert too. His office ir full of celebrity posters in barely any clothes. The girls in his class always got "special" treatment from him and always got the good grades, us dudes always got screwed over. I've heard very disturbing stuff from the girls too when they go to see him at his office.
Also he is always walking around our (tiny) mall during the weekends for hours on end. I was eating lunch at the food court with some friends and we made bets on whether he'd show up or not. Sure enough he did. Then we made bets on how many laps up and down the mall he'd do. The highest we bet was 5 at most. Well, by the time we were done with lunch, he had done 7(!!!). He also follows young girls around the mall.
I dunno why the creep is not in jail.
He is in ratemyprofessors.com and the comments for him are very nasty, but out of (what little) respect I've got for him I'll keep him anonymous.
Some excerpts from ratemyprofessors (this isn't even half of them):
5/29/06 COM221 4 5 4 3 Tech report writing is a boring class, but just go to his office and have him look over your papers and listen to what he suggests. Act interested! Lots of days off from class to conference, and get out early too.
4/10/06 Hu 330 1 1 1 1
330 1 1 1 1 Has a strange desire for furry animals. Talks about gerbils during class excessively and walks around the mall by himself EVERY DAY
3/14/06 COM 221 1 1 1 1 He was the best professor I've ever....errrr...just kidding. He was one of the worst ever.
/5/06 hu 2 3 1 5 must visit his office to do well in the class
2/5/06 HU195H 3 1 1 5 disturbing
9/2/05 all of his 5 3 3 4 For everyone that says it's impossible to get an A in his class haven't gone to his office. Yeah he's a freak but just pretend to really like him and you'll get an A every time!
8/29/05 COM221 1 2 1 4 Totally Horrible. The only way to pass is to have him proof read. Every day. Anybody else would be better... and less creepy.
6/28/05 com221 3 2 3 1 And this guy......hmmm....i see
/3/05 SS300 4 4 4 4 This guy is kinda crazy and kinda spooky. But he is really nice especially to girls, gerbils, and Buffy. SS300 is a great class if you like Science fiction.
4/14/05 COM 221 1 3 3 1 *****!!!!!!!! is what I yell in rage every time I see him. Aced every one of his papers, but got a C in the class (probably for some stupid mistake on the final paper). Oh, oh, and that horrendous 60 page paper on bacon and toast.
1/19/05 COM221 1 2 2 3 ***** isn't particularly clear or helpful, but clear enough if you're gifted, I suppose. He is absent WAY too often, for unexplained reasons. Sarah Michelle Gellar and gerbil fetish (don't ask). Looks like an ex-70's**** star.
11/18/04 COM 221 2 1 1 3 ***** sucks. Avoid his class at all costs. He would miss class with no explination, and not honor appiontments. BAD
4/24/04 COM 221 2 1 1 Worst teacher i've had here not helpful at all
AVOID AT ALL
COSTS. I took this class in summer A. Got an F on all assignments, even with just a few errors. Will not tell you what he expects from you for the assingments. The class is easy, but he makes it f***ing impossible. Me and another 13 dropped the class, at the time of this writing, only 4 (suicidal) students were left.
6/6/05 COM222 1 5 1 1 I can't believe that he takes 30% off your grade for more than 2 errors! WHO DOES THAT
?!? You may work on a paper for 3 hours, and not get any credit because you didn't center a picture to take care of the "white space". I would at least like some credit for the 3 hours of work I did
5/27/05 COM 221 2 5 5 2 I don't understand all the whining is about. If you go to class and conference with him, you'll do fine. He's always willing to help students and is in his office during his office hours. He knows his stuff.
5/26/05 COM 222 1 2 1 2 incompetancy...there is physically no way to get an A in his class and is always setting double standards...avoid at all costs if you would like to have a decent GPA or to only take the class once...
5/25/05 tech 1 1 2 2 to the comment before this...do you know WHY he is nice to girls? Think about that one
4/23/04 COM 221 1 1 1 He says you'll fail if you don't show up for extra help in his office (since he only holds class 1/5 of the time so we can get the help). Too bad he doesn't show up in his office.
4/21/04 HU325 4 5 2 He is always willing to help students out, including teaching independent study classes (which he doesnt get paid for according to unversityu policy. Sometimes a little unclear on what he wants from time to time, but overall not to bad!
3/5/04 COM221 1 1 1 The fact that I wasted my time writing 92 pages on what toast and bacon looks like is ridiculous. His fantasies with gerbils is strange, and he is totally disrespectful of students. Oh, and one more thing: We aren't in 1974 anymore!
2/8/04 COM221 4 5 4
2/5/04 COM 221 1 1 1 This guy has no respect for his students. He tells you to come to his office...even makes an appointment with you, and isn't there. He'll fail you for making FIVE grammatical errors (commas, semicolons, etc. count too)!!!
You do the math
I also find it interesting how even the worst scumbag instructors have one or two "nice" comments by the suck up students who love to take it in the ass. WTF is wrong with those kids?
