Each question was rated on a scale of 1-5, with 1 meaning “strongly agree” and 5 meaning “strongly disagree.” Lower values indicate more positive responses.

Selected Qualitative Student Feedback:

Instruction & Knowledge of Subject

  • Ms. Sneegas is an enthusiastic, brilliant professor. She fosters good conversation and considers participating students’ viewpoints. She incorporates fun, attention-grabbing activities when she can.
  • One of the best things about this class was the professor. She didn’t claim to know an answer to a question if she honestly didn’t know it. She would research the question and come back with an answer the next class period. You can tell how much she loves her subject – it really shows.
  • Ms. Sneegas was always very prepared and presented the information in an interesting way. She made the information relevant to my life and gave me a different perspective on geography.

Assignments & Learning Activities

  • I like that there is a lot of class involvement even though this is a larger lecture hall class.
  • I feel that the photo diaries are very beneficial in terms of applying the notes to our own lives.
  • If I could change one thing it would be the climate change symposium. I thought the groups were too large and unwieldy. In response to this and similar comments from Spring 2017, I made the group project optional as part of a revamped “Choose your own adventure” syllabus, which helped reduce group size.

Student Interaction

  • Professor Sneegas was a good teacher. She cared about her students and understand the material well. Honestly, she is one of the best teachers I’ve had in 5 years at UGA.
  • Ms. Sneegas was very personable and enjoyable to learn from. She did a great job at letting people know that she was available for help if they needed, and went out of her way to answer people’s questions.
  • This was a fun class! I’m sad it’s over. Prof Sneegas worked very hard to make the material engaging and relevant to us. She’s an excellent teacher – organized, informed, and fun.
  • Ms. Sneegas is very kind and does her job well. I can tell she loves what she does.
