Victoria Olsen

This professor has earned a CULPA gold nugget

Professor Olsen is sweet and she tries hard, but there were only a handful of stimulating discussions. She seemed to have a hard time accepting unusual ways of writing an essay, and her comments on the essays exposed this. She does let you do a first and then a final draft, though, which is really nice. Sadly, if you want a good grade, you have to sacrifice your style and just do what she wants.

REALLY NICE and sweet! She really tries to help you with your writing. She even emailed our class a long email asking us what we wanted her to do differently to help us more in writing. She also is really understanding about demanding workloads and will extend deadlines if you're swamped. I loved her as a professor. She's not the kind of professor who will yell at you if you didn't read. I didn't partiicpate much in class and still got an A, but it is important toshow her that you work hard on your essays. She is really open to meeting with you to help you on your essays. I met with her several times about my rough drafts any time i was stuck. She helped me find certain ideas to expand in my paper so that i could make the paper longer. And she's really cool with email. One time, during the weekend before a paper was due on Monday, I had major writer's block and couldn't expand my paper anymore. I just emailed the paper to her and she got back to me quickly with advise. She's also very understanding for writing recommendations. AWESOME TEACHER!!! Really nice! loved her!

Professor Olsen's class was by far my favorite class this semester. She is one of the nicest women you'll ever meet... so cute and very understanding! You don't have to do all of the readings, but be warned: she's a very fair grader so be sure to read the books that you chose to write your papers on. She's awesome!
