John Rocco Varamo

GIS is really cool and the class wasn't that hard, but it was really boring and the work was rather tedious. This was Professor Varamo's first semester teaching and he also has a full time job as a GIS professional, so he didn't have time to make his own lesson plan. This meant we just used the textbook for everything, which was why the class was so boring. Also, Professor Varamo told us that people are transitioning away from traditional ArcGis, which is what the class covers, and will probably only use ArcGis Online by the time we enter the workforce, which was highly frustrating. I'd recommend taking this class if you are going into a profession that needs GIS, but I don't know if I would take it otherwise.
