I looked at the faculty evaluations for the other Section 2 professors to see if we had any particularly horrible profs, and from the evaluations that are available, it seems that they're all pretty good.
The only one that didn't have any evals (other than the visiting prof) was Prof. Jim Greiner (Civ Pro), but then I found out why: he's been appointed as an Assistant Professor starting this year!!! From what is listed in his bio, he hasn't taught anywhere else before, so he'll be completely new. That's a little bit scary, and I guess it sucks that we won't have any old exams of his to look at (as well as old student outlines for his course). Grrrrrr.
Anyways, someone mentioned earlier that there was a way of buying books beforehand: How??? Is there a way that we can get our hands on our book lists before orientation so that we can save some $$$?
