George Field on

"George genuinely cares about each and every student in his class. This is a class you will look forward to going to. You will leave as a changed person and will undoubtedly see the world and everyone in it in a new light. He is extremely knowledgable and passionate about what he does. Fantastic lectures, overall couldn't ask for a better professor."

"He is by far the most amazing professor I have ever had. He doesn't teach from a powerpoint or read off of something another professor made. He speaks from experience and in a way that makes it easy to learn. He also refuses to take an quizzes unless he knows the whole class is ready to pass. He is the only professor I've had 100% attendance with!"

"This man is a genius."

Sad that this man has been trusted by so many people.
