Singh, Sonam
[FYSB BC1156/69] First Year Seminar: Legacy of the Mediterranean I

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

AVOID THIS PROFESSOR IF POSSIBLE. His lectures were terribly boring, he never actually grades our papers, holds meetings at random times and only when you remind him, and he is extremely condescending. I had to make my papers 'interesting' or else I wouldn't get a good grade. He likes when you think out of the box - meaning completely unfounded utterly ridiculous fluff based on nothing.

I couldn't avoid it because first year professors are random assignments, but if he ever starts teaching other classes here, AVOID.

Oh, and he loves mentioning how he went to a much more superior institution than Columbia: Cornell.

Workload:

easy, breezy, but he harshly grades. 3 papers. no need to take notes.
