Marie-Rose Logan

Aug 2005

Taking Lit Hum with Professor Logan might have been one of my most painful college experiences ever. She is very hard of hearing, focuses on the most inane topics of a book, and is incapable of leading a compelling class discussion. Sitting through the two hours was excruciating. My advice to any student with a chance to transfer out: DO IT. She's a fairly easy teacher, but the light workload and easy grading don't make up for the awfully boring class.

What can I say, this lady is fantastic! I absolutely love her! She's so easy, and she loves to teach. Her lectures are boring, and I never do all the reading. But she's still great because she doesnt assign a gazillion writing assignments, just 2 papers, midterm, and a final. Just write good notes, and you'd do fine on it all. She's the best teacher if your premed. If you hear your friend's in this class, switch into it quick! If you're lucky enough to have her, then count your blessings!

oooh, Marie. As another reviewer stated, she is quite hard of hearing, and speaks with what at first appears to be an accent, but I think is actually some sort of speach impediment. One cannot hold this against her, however it can be frustrating when you make a valid point on a text and it is completely lost on her. However, besides this slight disability Prof. Logan is good person to have for lit hum. We moved slower than the other classes, but still managed to cover almost everything. I felt well-prepared for the final. She does, however, place unnecessary emphasis on the historical aspects of the books. She frequently points out locations on maps, or writes-out the Greek lettering of certain words, which is lost on the entire class. But you just sit and nod and don't worry about it. She tends to play favorites, if not in grading, at least in the treatment of students in class and will poke fun at some, but all these minor faults are more humorous than anything else. Prof. Logan likes and wants what's best for her students, will look at drafts, and gives less work than many professors-- that's what counts.

Professor Logan is a little hard to sum up. At the beginning of the semester everyone in class seemed anxious about the upcoming term. She spoke with an incredible lisp and clearly needed to see her gerontologist about some hearing aids. She agreed with students when it was clear she hadn't even heard what they said, and corrected students for answers which were acutally right - she just hadn't heard them correctly. To make matters worse, she was living in Philadelphia for the first half of the semester and ended up missing class several times due to the long commute. Amazingly, though, only one student switched sections. By the middle of the semester, though, Professor Logan was easy to tolerate as long as you didn't take her corrections and hearing loss to personally. She proved to be a very fair, if not easy, grader and gave a midterm that was not bad at all. She even tried to make class more fun by taking us to a play in the Village and allowing us to write a review of it for extra-credit. She constantly reminded us that puntcuality and attendance were mandatory, but she often forgot to take attendance or was late herself. I missed class 6-8 times during the semester and still got a B+. At the end of the semester, Professor Logan's eccentricities were nothing short of humorous. She continued to be a fair grader, moved to Manhattan, and despite having not covered all the material from the syllabus had prepared us well for the final.
