Funny-Professor-Review-Storiesremember I had a disagreement with my old netsec professor... my very first semester in college, and it soured our relationship my entire time in the CS program. The professor always had the class write 2 reviews, one "unofficial" at the beginning of the semester, and one "official", towards the end. I usually always wrote something along the lines of, " I'm only taking you, because you're the only instructor that teaches my subject of interest." For the first unofficial review. The semester would go on some , and remember how much I despised this professor around midterm time, and how much this professor tode my ass all class, every class. For my final, official review, I would always write, "If I could find another professor that teaches near me, and doesn't talk themselves up for 80% of the class...I would tell other students, we'd all drop you for this other instructor, and you'd be without a job" Looking back... I really didn't like that professor. However, because this professor always rode my ass I really know my stuff.
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesI had a couple of professors that were a little bitter about some of their reviews. The professor I did research with had a couple of them that he made fun of: He uses algebra for his problems (this was engineering analysis II so basically solving ODEs with advanced math like calculus and god forbid algebra) He says the same jokes. (he did but he made fun of the guy in class by saying he should have passed the class the first time if he didn't want to hear his jokes more than once) My fluids professor was proud that he had the pepper on ratemyprofessor. But he was also bitter about some of the not so good reviews. Mind you these were probably the two best professors we had in the whole program. Anyone saying anything bad about them was a lazy f*ck who didn't want to put in minimal work.
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesMy professor got reviewed by the cis dept and he said he wanted to shoot the guy that reviewed him. He threatened my grade because he said he saw what I, honestly, rated him. I will never do those stupid evaluations anymore.
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesMy biology professor once read his evaluation surveys in front of the class. His top choice was "He is so great, I would dust my Belgian waffles with his dandruff"
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesMy history professor’s favorite review from a student was “Tried to be a son of b*tch and failed.”
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesThe best professor I ever had opened the first class with his Rate My Professor reviews. Most people said he was too difficult, some said he was absolutely amazing, and one person said that “he stalks about the room like an agitated orangutan.” The class was hard - we went from 30 students to nine, but I liked him so much I took his two other courses, then sent him a thank-you note 12 years later for inspiring me. Fortunately I caught him right before he retired.
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesSeventeen years as a professor, and all I ever got was "You s*ck at teaching, please retire." I can't believe it took me 17 years to realize it was time to retire. Note: no one ever said that to me on a review. Reviews are mixed, half good, half bad. I retired for health reasons, and wish I didn't have to retire. Best job I ever had.
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesI had a professor like this in college -- physics; he was from Boston, had a bit of an accent, irish heritage, funny with a pretty good sense of humor. He starts our first class with a stack of reviews like this, they're ordered from good to bad. He reads the first few, pretty positive, several sentences each; he gets a bit bored of those, so he flips the stack over and reads the very last one. It only says: "You s*ck, I hope you die." Everyone gets a good laugh, including him. This is in like 1998 or so, so after everyone settles down, he says: "To whoever that is, if you're in the class, I just want to assure you, that sometime in the middle of the next century, I will definitely die." Still one of my favorite in-class memories.
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesMy dad teaches art so his students would often draw on the evaluation forms. He received them a semester later and never saw the originals, but some of his favorite transcribed evaluations were "Student drew dragon giving thumbs up sign" and "Student drew stick figure with arrow pointing to feet with label 'Professor Matt rocks my socks'" (in recent years, however, the university has switched to electronic surveys).
Funny-Professor-Review-StoriesI suffered repercussions myself for leaving one review. It still makes me red behind the ears thinking about it: As a somewhat overeager freshman, I was perhaps too honest in a review of my journalism 101 prof; this was my first class of my major, and she failed to live up to my Rory Gilmore-like expectations. The class was very small, and she fawned over a Barbie carbon copy, queen of her HS prom type in the class. I had no problem with the girl herself- she was genuinely interested in the class because her fashion interests stemmed, like many, from magazines and culture setting iconic editors, etc. The problem was the professor: she was an aging dumpy woman and she positively GLOWED having a beauty queen's undivided attention, and the course pretty quickly became tailored toward the girl's interests, and I was left disappointed with my introduction to my major, even more so because this woman was also the wife of the head of the communication's department, and like good little journo I am, I had done my research on her before choosing her class months ahead of time. She was a former editor for our largest local papers and one of the largest in our state, so I thought all of these factors would give me a great foot hold in the door. I was sorely mistaken, I gained absolutely nothing from that class, and a less experienced student not already working the industry would most likely have been turned off on the subject. And I told her so in the review, in a professional but frank manner. Semester ends, summer begins and she calls my phone, leaves a VM asking me to call her back. I just knew it had something to do with the review. I was wrong again- I had no IDEA how truly petty and bat shit she was. She proceeded to call and leave messages, including texts, for the rest of the summer, as well as emails, all of increasing desperation and aggravation, and it was most definitely regarding my review. She openly stated in her messages that she knew it was my hand writing and she demanded to know how I could say such things and to DISCUSS IT WITH HER RIGHT NOW. When I remained radio silent, contemplating and dreading the situation all summer, she then proceeded to somehow convince her husband to contact my guidance counselor and force a meeting of sorts to discuss if my major was the right choice for me, during which time I'm sure she would have been present and ready for a fight. This was years ago but I believe I just continued to ignore her contact and she eventually stopped. Fast forward a few years and I've just left a solid career with a well-read online publication after being contacted and courted heavily by a local paper with a major board of tri state heavyweights, including Geraldo Rivera. I thought I had it made, and they put intense pressure on me to leave my job and work for them within a week, as they had just wiped almost their entire staff and brought in a new editor with a stellar background. I burned that bridge obviously with my old job just to walk in my first Monday with devil professor grinning, holding my set of keys and ready to give me my tour. She apparently was the new star editor, and SEVEN YEARS LATER recognized my name and pushed to hire me. Just so she could complete the psycho picture and torment me in my job and make my work a living nightmare. She crushed my soul within two weeks and I walked out. Couldn't go back to the old job, and it's put a serious dent in my career. It burns me up. Those reviews were anonymous. She abused her powers and harassed me, stalked me, made assumptions right off the bat it was me with accusations, and then plotted and manipulated like a goddamned movie villain to lure me to a new job with burned bridges behind me, just to get her petty little revenge on that review and show me she knows her shit. Congrats old lady, you won. I just loved journalism and my state and wanted to work.
