Qualitative Student Evaluations

“She was enthusiastic and very creative in her way of teaching different aspects of sociology. As an exchange student I didn’t have any difficulties to understand the material. She spoke clearly. Her course was well organized and I really liked it. The atmosphere in the class was very good. She gave a lot of time for discussions about relevant topics. This was my favorite sociology course that I have done in my studies and I am a senior.” (Fall 2018)

“Professor Wilcox was very receptive and clear about what was expected and would be addressed in the class and on exams. I found that professor Wilcox explained material well and used useful examples and activities to aid in concepts.” (Fall 2018)

“I didn’t expect Ms. Wilcox to be my favorite teacher of the semester because I only needed SOC 202 as a GEP, but I thoroughly enjoyed her class. She had a really good mix of lectures, interactive activity, small group discussion, and large group discussion, all which helped me learn. Whenever I had a reason to be out of class, she was very understanding and helped me with what I needed to do to stay caught up. Her exams were very fair and a good resemblance of what she taught in the course.” (Spring 2019)

“Professor Wilcox was constantly prepared for class and made the material very engaging.” (Summer 2019)
