    Favorite Professor

    Who was your favorite professor at ISU?

    I had to fill an elective once, so I decided to take Intro to Global Politics since I kind of liked the stuff, a little.

    The professor turned out to be Richard Mansbach, who is easily one of the smartest people I've ever been around. He would make the class into a discussion one, but he'd just sit up there reciting from memory EVERYTHING. The guy ******* knew EVERYTHING, and to get you to think, he played devil's advocate. There was one annoying guy in class who would always try and debate him, and Mansbach would just destroy him with bringing up some obscure event that barely anybody knows about. Furthermore, he was from Manhattan and not afraid to speak his mind. He didn't give a ****.

    I had given up on professors being passionate teachers, but this guy proved me wrong. Extremely passionate.

    It was fun too finding out he basically has the credentials to be say, Secretary of State, and was former CIA and formerly a Reagan adviser (I think). I still feel truly grateful to have been taught by that guy. Some people might not like him, but I found him to be my favorite professor at ISU.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    My favorite professors so far in no particular order. Gary Wells (psych 280), Eric Northway (relig 205), and Barbara Macke (JL MC 101).

    Another good one. One of my electives that I thought I'd skip most of the classes, but showed up to every one. Learned a lot.

    LOL he was pretty great, although absent and semi full of himself I found. I did like how on the first day of Psych 280 he shows this collage which nobody knew what it was. Then he's like "Actually guys, this is all porn" and some people semi freaked out. He's just like "exactly. You didn't care what it was when you didn't know"

    Probably Dr. Tuttle in EE. This is my third semester with him, and I'm also a TA for one of his classes. He's very knowledgeable yet approachable. Has a great ability to breakdown complex theory into simple metaphors.
