UNIV 1113
University Success for Freshmen
5*****
Pros: He is a great professor!! I definitely recommend him. If you try hard on the assignments, he will give you a good grade. He is really enthusiastic. You have one big project but it's really easy and a bunch of little projects.
Cons: Some of the written assignments are a little tedious and some have to be three pages, but they are still really easy.
Favorite class! And you actually learn a lot about time management and other skills that will help you succeed. You also take a lot of personality tests which are really interesting and fun.

5*****
Pros: WORLD'S NICEST TEACHER
Cons: Only counts as an elective.
Dr. Pisarik might be the nicest man on this campus, if not on God's green earth. He is sincerely invested in encouraging his students to fulfill their potential. After taking his class, my grades turned around. It sounds ridiculous, but he reminded me to believe in myself, and it made all of the difference in the world. I learned so much about myself, and it was very beneficial to the rest of my college career. HE IS AWESOME. TAKE THIS CLASS.

5*****
Pros: He is so nice! He always asks you how you are doing and seems to truly care about what you gain from his course. I learned a lot of valuable life lessons from this class.
Cons: There are quite a few random essays that he assigns. They are a little annoying because they are so simple, but long and mandatory. Also, don't take a morning class. He only allows one absence and its hard waking up for such an easy class.
Take this class as a senior.

A great class to take if you have a heavy workload and need a chill class to fulfill your hours. Chris is an extremely nice and highly energetic man, and his class is pretty interesting. He does a good job of getting personal with all the students, and he makes you feel special when you walk inside. The class is mainly a discussion class, but he will sometimes give you a writing assignment. These assignments are generally 2-3 pages long but are very informal so there is no pressure. Overall, I'm very glad i took this course, it actually changed my perspective in some important aspects of life, and I became friends with the teacher.

UNIV 1103
Strategies and Life-Skills Needed for Success
5*****
Pros: No exams/quizzes, easy homework, light workload, watch videos, great teacher
Cons: None!
Pisarik is hands down the best teacher I've ever had! He's so happy and energetic that it's hard for it not to rub off on you. And he really truly cares about each student that walks into his room; he wants to know what's going on in your life and if you're feeling ok (guess that's his counselor side showing). I thought this class would just be an overview of basic, obvious tips for success in college but you learn SO much more, especially things about yourself that otherwise might have never crossed your mind.

UNIV 1113

5*****
Pros: -Extremely personable guy

-Really cares about the students learning and well being

-Really easy to understand

-Engaging lectures

-Very enthusiastic about his classes and students
Cons: NONE!
The homework that Pisarik does give is all reflective writing, meaning writing about yourself. This makes the assignments super easy. He also grades everything really easily. Basically, if you just put some effort into your papers and turn them in, you will get a 100. Anyone will get a lot out of his class, no matter how much you put into it. I couldn't ever recommend someone/a class more!!

UNIV 1103

5*****
Pros: An INCREDIBLY energetic and passionate man. He loves his students and his material. It can be a little hokey, but you learn to enjoy it. One of the only classes I've ever looked forward to going to.
Cons: Everyone seems to register for the class with a friend, so it might be a drag for you if you didn't.
It's an enjoyable way to get a pretty easy A. All the work is about yourself, so it's not like you can go wrong. Take this class!

Pros: Amazing professor

Fun class

Easy A
Cons: None!
Pisarik is a great guy. I always looked forward to this class and I never had to stress about it which was great. He always has a smile on his face and finds the time to ask how each student's day is going. You have quite a few projects but they are super easy and honestly they can be pretty fun. I don't see how anyone could not love this class. He even brought us cookies one day!

Pros: He cares about students individually and homework is easy.
Cons: Attendance is mandatory
He is a great teacher and really easy to talk to. If you have any problems you could speak to him. The homework is almost mundane but its really based on your personal reflection. The Two projects were the same but you are always given opportunities to redeem yourself as long as you are trying.
