The American Renaissance

Dec 2006

There are no other words to describe Prof. Claybaugh than brilliant. I'm not sure what it is about her, but everyone in my seminar was simply awestruck by how intelligent she is. It's as if she is superhuman and her superpower is clear-thinking. Claybaugh is able to grasp complex concepts very quickly and articulate them incredibly clearly. I have never seen any professor be so on-the-ball all the freaking time. Having said that, her seminar was absolutely wonderful. The material was good, the discussions were good, and the homework assignments helped tremendously. The only tough part about her class was the she demanded so much out of her students in terms of thinking and writing. I don't think I've ever had a professor expect such logical and well thought-out papers. In the end, though, you'll appreciate the difficulty. Take any class this woman offers. You won't regret it.
