KNES 287 - SPORT+AMER SOCIETY
One of the better professors in the University.
Pros: Takes student's concerns seriously. Answers email super fast, unlike some professors who never respond to your concerns at all. Tests are extremely easy.
Cons: Couple essays that took me a lot of time to finish.

Pros: Very engaging and interesting when lecturing

Exams closely follow the lecture, and I'm pretty sure there are 4 exams, not 100% positive
Cons: Sometimes gets off on tangents and stories, but small complaint usually stays on track

5*****
Pros: I took this course online in the winter, and I enjoyed it very much. Dr. Andrews is very passionate about this course. I got much more out of it than I expected. Also, despite the course being taught online, it was very interactive.
Cons: Since I took the class over the winter, the workload was condensed into only 3 weeks which made the class quite time consuming. Other than that, it was a great class.
