 Though this class was just a random Gen. Ed for me I really enjoyed going to his class. He has a great sense of humor and always makes amusing or funny comments to break the ice with the class and to get everyone talking. His tests are kind of hard, but it's all multiple choice. So just show up to class and study for his tests and it should be no problem to get a good grade in his class.

 For a 3 hour night class cultural geo wasn't that bad. Kurt made the info easy to understand and he was willing to answer questions. The exams are really easy if you read the book and go to class. But don't be scared... the book is all pictures and fun to read.

 I was formerly a geography major because I thought it was interesting. If you have no interest in it it's not going to be very fun. Cultural geography had a lot of examples which were always interesting. Assignments were easy. Tests were mc and challenging but if you went over the powerpoints, read the book and came to class you shouldn't have any problems. Geo of US and Canada had the map project which WAS time consuming but easy. And the tests were the same format. Hes a great guy. Really nice and if you make the effort you should have no problems!

 This guy is easy, nice, and you learn a lot from him. His tests and quizzes are very easy; I didnít study at all for them and got Bís on every thing. There is some homework but its easy points. I also had him for Geo of US and Canada and he was even easier. And donít think that you wonít learn anything from him either just because heís easy; I still came out of this class with a sh*t load of knowledge. Take this prof. for any class that you can.

 He's the man. Seriously, his classes were interesting. He does a lot of case studies, like places he's been and things he's done, and it's really interesting. He's got this dry sense of humor that I found so hilarious. I would take him again if I had the chance. Oh, make sure you do the readings...the chapters are long, but if you don't like to read...don't take this course.

 Prof Fuellhart was an amazing professor. He was ALWAYS there to talk whenever you needed to about anything. He is very willing to work with you and be available to you. I came to him for help and at the end of a VERY helpful meeting, HE thanked ME, which I thought was extremely nice. He's the type of person who genuinely cares how you do. The class is not rocket science, but its not exactly easy either. Basically, if you come to class, take notes and read the chapters, you'll do fine. I would totally take him again, and DEF recommend him.

 This was by far the hardest 200 level class I've taken. Kurt is tough only in that he expects you to be able to apply what you have learned in class to the exams and group projects. I would definitely take him again because challenging classes are much more fun.

 Prof. Fuellhart has a very good classroom demeanor. The classes were interesting and the workload wasn't too heavy. The only down side to the class were that the exams were challenging and the two group projects hold so much weight for your overall grade...this equivalates to finding "good" group partners to depend on to carry their own weight! Not always an easy task. One plus...you won't have to buy any wordy, unreadable textbooks...everything was handout or online reading and that was all very easy. All-in-all...it was a very good class.

 Kurt has been one of the best professors I've had here at Ship so far. Yes, his class is difficult, but get over it. He tries to make the dry material seem more interesting, and he provides lots of examples to aid understanding. The only pain was the 2 group projects; it's an insane amount of work for the grades he hands out. I would definitely recommend him.

Class:Economic Geography (B)
 9 of 34 students found this review helpful.

 Kurt is a great professor who is enthusiastic about the material he teaches. I had him for Cultural and Geo of US/Canada previously and loved those courses so much I decided to minor in Geography. Econ Geo was a pain, because I do not enjoy economics at all, and the class did not seem as enjoyable as the courses I had taken previously with him because there are group projects which are a pain but he is a pretty easy grader on. The exams were a huge pain because he was a huge stickler on the problems and short answer questions, but on the bright side there are only 2 exams and NO FINAL, but the exams are what brought my grade down to a B. Kurt is a very easy going guy and likes to be referred to on a first name basis which is odd but makes him seem more likable to students and less of an authority figure, plus if you excel in his courses he buys you lunch as I was so fortunate in the first 2 courses I took with him, not so much in Econ Geo. Take him for any of your courses if you can actually get a spot!

 This is the second class that I took with this guy and it is just as good as the first. Kurt is a really cool professor who loves to talk about sports and be more of a friend to his students. You have to study a little bit for his tests but the rest of the class is pretty easy, just taking notes off of a powerpoint. The only problem is that until shearer gets remodeled, his classes are in gilbert and horton and those buildings are trash.

Class:Geog. U.S./Canada (A-)
 9 of 34 students found this review helpful.

 Kurt is the type of professor who is a student's best friend. Basics: He provides all of the information you need on a silver platter, offers a comprehensive and user-friendly website, gives a lot of lead-time for projects, and teaches with enthusiasm. Extra: his assigns a lot of reading and tests you widely on it. I studied for about two weeks and did ALL of the reading for the first test and got a low B. I studied equal or better for second test and got a high C. Wow. However, I learned more than I ever thought I would. I picked my grade up with class participation, good quiz scores, and good map project scores. If you don't do the reading, you are toast. It's not 'memory' reading either, it's 'process what I read' reading. In other words, if you don't understand it, you will not do well on the written part of the test. Final Thoughts: Kurt is what a college professor should be. If you're in college to skate through, get out of college. If you are in to stretch yourself and better prepare yourself for a career, you are in the right place.

 I had Kurt my first semester as a freshman, and I was a little worried at first because what the hell did I give a sh*t about cultural geography for? However, he actually made it interesting. All the notes are from power point, he explains things really well. 3 ridiculously easy quizzes on a packet he gives you, 3 projects that really aren't bad, and 3 exams. Yes, you have to study for the exams, but he gives you a review sheet that tells you EXACTLY what to study. If I had studied slightly harder for the tests I could have easily gotten an A in his class. He's an awesome guy and there whenever you need him to be. I highly recommend.

The map project was a pain but you learn where things are you never knew before...for example i didn't know yosimite was in California, i thought it was in Wyoming?...you will not lose interest in the class...take him!

 Kurt is a very effective professor. I had him for two classes the same semester, and he is always willing to help and encourages students to come by his office for help or just to talk. The map project he assigns is actually interesting. It lets you see certain points all across the country. I maybe a little biased since I am a Geography major, but if you want a great gen ed. and want to learn more about the geography its a great class to take.

 Kurt is a great guy in and out of class, he likes people to be involved but he doesn't make everyone answer. He teaches things in a really understandable format and is always willing to answer questions. He isn't the easiest to find after class but when he says he's going to be in his office, he always is. He has his notes online, all you do is go and print them to follow in class. Tests are kinda hard until you figure out his test style. Know the notes and you'll do well, like I said though, he's a great prof, in and out of class!

 As a professor he is about average. I have had professors that are better at conveying material then he is. However, one day in class while we were talking about age distributions and how certain age groups financially support others, he said "the reason you all will not be able to retire at 65 is because the republicans are taking all the money" or something along those lines. My personal political views aside, that comment was extremely inappropriate and no one should make comments like that while teaching a class full of students. Do not take his class.

 This was one of the toughest classes I ever took. I mean Fuellhart is a nice guy and is willing to help, but class work is another story. His exams are really hard. You have to memorize notes from his powerpoints, plus information from several websites he puts up on his webpage and a lot of locations on google earth. I struggled on the midterm and the final, even after taking a lot of time to study. He also assigns a map project, drawing boundaries and highlighting names of places. He is very picky about how you draw your lines, if it is not how he wants it, you get like 5 points off on each one wrong. You have a guide book to follow and he says to come to his office hours but even then, it's hard to get a good grade on it. There are several quizzes as well, but as long as you study you'll get a good grade. He is a nice guy but I wouldn't suggest taking him.

 Fuellhart's Geography of US and Canada class is seriously OUT OF CONTROL. It is a general education course, but the amount of work you have to do is immense. His lectures are long and boring, and his powerpoints go on and on about nonsense that is completely incomprehensible. Moreover, his lectures aren't at all structured, and I have had difficulty determining what physiographic region we are discussing at any given time. Not surprisingly, my confusion over the lectures is compounded by the vast array of other information he expects us to memorize, including hand-outs, and information on both his Web site and Google Earth. When test time came, I was so perturbed that I wanted to claw my eyes out. The exams literally have 80-100 questions, as well as 3 map sections, in which you must identify and correctly label obscure smudges. I studied and studied, and got a 70% on the first test. I just finished the second exam (of which I haven't seen the grade yet), but know that the outlook isn't good. However, the absolute WORST part of the class is the map project you are required to finish by the end of the semester. The map project is long and laborious, and requires you to map out different physiographic regions of the US and Canada. Instead of giving you simple details on how to get from Point A to Point B, he gives you a 43 page booklet with overly convoluted instructions that are impossible to follow. I forgot to highlight one city (as you are also required to highlight various places) and he docked points off my grade. I would completely understand his method of teaching if this course was solely for geography majors, but this is a general education course that I was forced to take. This class has nothing to do with my major, but it is totally messing up my A average right in time to apply to graduate schools. I think it goes without saying to avoid this course at all costs!

 Kurt's quizzes are very easy but his tests are almost impossible. He teaches by powerpoint that has nothing to do with the text book, so you have to study the book and his notes for the tests. He also has questions on the test about pictures he had on his powerpoints, that you can not print off. If you do not like coming to class, you will not pass this class.

 I don't understand how this class could be a 100 level. The amount of work you have to do is crazy! His tests are horrible...

This class sucks and it kept me off dean's list, so that shows you that I am a good student and this class was the hardest I ever took!

 I was a Geography major until I switched to Political Science; hence I had taken some 100 level Geo. courses prior, I am also a transfer student, whom was forced to take his class...odd enough. I would say that I have great justification for my remarks because the material that he taught I had already been taught and retained, so it was interesting to evaluate his style; what I realized was that he's a blasted moron. This is what he does: He makes the material harder than it is, he talks too long on simple topics that are common sense, he makes mistakes grading your tests, he exacerbates the lectures, he glorifies himself to his students, hes very sarcastic...almost a jerk, and furthermore I felt like an idiot attending his class because I left actually confused about the lecture; which is ironic because I took 3 100 level Geo. courses prior and passed with an average A. So to receive a B in his class, to stuggle with the tests, to feel as though I lost information when I attended, to have him insult me when I went to his office to ask him why he gave me the wrong grade on a test, I guess he can't do simple math...all together I was persuaded to avoid him for the rest of my college career. His tests aren't too bad, they do require some studying and his projects are a joke. Peace...

Even studying will only get you a B. The questions on the test are so remote, that it just makes you want to drop that class but you realize its too late. The map project wouldnt have been that bad if there werent tiny, unreadable places to identify and highlight. The map project was hard because he makes you find things that you can barely see without a microscope. Overall, he knows what hes talking about but the notes and the tests and the map project are extremely difficult and time consuming. I dont recommend taking him for a gen-ed class. It will drop your GPA significantly.

 I honestly wanted to kick Kurt in the teeth today. his class is so obnoxious, he's like the notes Nazi. There's so many out of control questions on his tests and it's just really too much for a f*cking GEN ED class. I mean come on, 85 questions for an exam that doesn't even include the 3 maps? This dude is insane. He's boring, and even when the class is interesting, I don't even really care. I mean it's geography ... I just picked it to fulfill a gen-ed .. and as a result my GPA is probably gonna sink. I wish I never took this class and put myself through this hell! And don't even get me started on his ridiculous map project ... I worked my ass off for 4 days on it and only got a 40/50 because my one line was about an inch off. He can seriously suck it, don't take his class.

 He is a decent guy. Young, and talks in plain sense. Seems well but be warned he is a LOT harder than necessary. He gives a map project which is BEYOND ridiculous and he is anal about it. If you mess up by a milimeter (very easy to do) he'll punish your score. His tests are also very difficult and long. Expects you to memorize a LOT. Very hard and if geography isn't your thing you might be hit hard by him. Wouldn't take him.

 Don't take him for night class because he is simply not a night person. He seems to be more effective in the day because, when he gives his night class a test, there are questions in it that are neither in the book nor in the lecture he gave during the class. What happened? The tests have questions that are addressed in the day time, not the night time. This is especially true because he doesn't really cancel day classes. He doesn't have much of a problem shortening or cancelling night classes though. Your grade will most likely take a hit if you take him at night.

 A good teacher he makes class interesting.The tests are easy if you study for them and the quizes are even easier than the tests. My only complaint is that he gives a pain in the ass map project that is due at the end of the semester. All and all I would deinately recommend taking him though.

 Fuellhart knows how to lecture. Most of his exams are based off of lectures,but you do need to study the book too. You will have 3 exams, and the average of those exams are 70% of your grade. The rest of the class is very easy. Attendance isn't required, but you need to go to class to pass the exams.

 Tests were hard. Questions were sometimes super super specific and your grade was basically all test. Expected you to remember the random stuff but not really the important stuff.

 Prof. Fuellhart is a great guy, very nice and personable. And the material in this class was fun and actually relevant to real life. His tests were pretty challenging, I would think I did alright and I would get a D on them. Make sure you know the math and formulas front to back because they pop up on the exams. ALSO, he grades the group projects/memo's harshly. Make sure you have done it in the proper format or else he will take off a lot of points. In general, he grades pretty intensely. Do not be thrown off by his kindness.

 Fuellhart is a great guy. He's not boring and he let's you out early a lot of times. The only bad thing are his exams. They're pretty difficult and long. If you study you'll do fine though.

 Kurt as he likes to be called is a pretty cool prof. Being an education major I could tell he really is passionate about what he teaches. Even though he knows his stuff, I think he goes a bit to the extreme when it comes to exam time. Honestly you have to know EVERYTHING in the text and in his lecture notes. His exams are worth ungodly amounts of points... MC, slides, map identification. I know most people think MC is easy and so on but not in this class. When he asks a test question he wants a specific answer... an example would be after reading a passage about George Washington crossing the Delaware River you'd expect a question as to which river did he cross or as to why he crossed it... oh no Kurt's question would ask you to identify what color shoes Washington wore or how many buttons were on his shirt... If you like to skip class, show up late, or not read the book then don't waste your time... you will not do good in his class!

 Way too many notes! I thought I was going to die. Don't ever take him for a night class. He's a really nice guy, and he means well, but it's so boring. All you do is take notes and then take some more notes. If you're looking for an easy A, this is not the prof to take. His tests are extremely long, and the multiple choice questions are just ridiculous. You know, the ones that say, A and B, or A and C. They're just annoying and I really disliked the class. Don't get me wrong, he's a nice guy, but I did not like the way he taught.

 Kurt, as he likes to be called, is a decent prof. I did actually learn stuff. However, I had him for a 3 hour night class on Monday. That sucks!! He is a young guy, loves the boston red socks and people that play sports expecially basketball and baseball. His exams are kinda hard. I usually don't get anything under a B. But his exams left me with two big fat C's. He requires 3 small projects that are so easy and 3 small quizes on current events. Does not offer extra credit!

 Kurt is an extremely cool guy. He is kinda laid back and makes class fun. However, even though he doesn't take attendance his classes do require a lot of note taking and reading. He puts practically everythign he talks about on the tests and his quizzes are about the only "easy" grades. The class isn't difficult if you do the assigned readings.
