 I had Dr.Konetschni for both the intro to Soc. course and Minority Groups. He's a great guy...and it's obvious he knows a lot about what he's talking about. I found his Minority Groups class to be pretty interesting. The tests were somewhat difficult, but definitely fair. If you have the chance, take him!

 I like this professor alot. He is very smart and he has alot of knowledge to spread. The only way you wouldn't like him is if youre lazy and you don't try to learn. I recommend this prof. to anyone.

Subject: He's a cool dude  (Mar 28 2004, 08:48PM)

 Dr. K is very fatherly. He has a lot of books and a lot of knowledge, and I wish he was my dad. He applies a lot of social problems with stories from his life and also general knowledge. You may wanna watch out if you tend to be late to class--I heard him complain to some dude about his consistent lateness. He made a point about that the first day of class, so it's not like they didn't get fair warning. He doesn't really allow for much discussion in his class, he does most of the talking, and I kind of wish that he would ask questions sometimes, but I guess that's just not his thing. I would still take him though because you DEFINITELY can learn a lot.

 If you are academically challenged or prone to laziness, I would not recommend taking Dr. Konetschni. You have to pay attention, take notes, and study...but it is worth it. I loved the class, the information was important and interesting, and Dr. Konetschni is the greatest person. He is very understanding and nice, and he has a great sense of humor. Respect him and he will respect you, take the class!

 Dr. K is a pretty cool guy even at his age. He is actually up to date in most aspects. He dresses well and tells cool stories. A little advice though: READ THE BOOK!!! and TAKE HIS NOTES. he puts questions on the exam based on his stories and case studies. You need to apply the info from the notes and book to test questions. There are only 2 exams before the finial and he requires one 5-paged paper. He also offers extra credit that is applied directly to your finial grade. 3 whole points!! this can bring your finial grade from a 87 to a 90! Take advantage!! And take Him.

 Dr. Konetschni is a really cool teacher. He teaches slow enough that everyone can understand the material well. And a lot of the material is actually INTERESTING! On top of Intro to Sociology, he also teaches a course on Minority Groups. If you have to take Intro to Sociology, give Dr. Konetschni a try.

 This guy is a good prof. You learn a lot about what it means to be a minorty group. He is objective, not subjective, when it comes to his lectures. He will show you the darker side of society that you may have never seen. He's not hard, either. The tests aren't difficult and he doesn't grade papers hard either. Overall a great prof! And if your class likes to participate in discussions, then class will be even better too. He likes to spark a little controversy in the classroom.

Subject: Boring asshole  (Mar 31 2004, 02:28PM)

  This profs classes are boring as hell. Every class he would lecture for over a hour. His tests were not real hard, but if ya don't do good on one ya gotta do good on the rest of the grades because there are only 4 total. A problem I had with him is I almost failed his class because he did not accept my paper because i was late to class. I could understand if i tried to hand the paper in late or somthing along those lines, but what asshole doesn't accept a paper that was due that class period!!!

 This guy has all these good comments, so I take him and he is as boring as hell. I studied, didn't miss a class, and read the book and still got an 82 on both tests. His questions on tests do not make sense. Also, we had to write a paper, he gave me a B, but didn't write any comments on it. He could have at least said what was wrong with it. I wouldn't take him again if I had to.

 Dr. K is ok, if you like to do nothing but listen to lecture, take tons of notes, and take tests that have nothing to do with the notes. The class was more boring than watching grass grow, and he even kicked someone out of class when their cell phone went off. Don't take him if you want to enjoy a class!
