 Dr. Blewett is my favorite prof. in the Geo. dept. I learned a lot from him. His tests are pretty hard and thereís a 10 point quiz every week, but the quizzes arenít hard. You do need study and go to class, but if you take this prof. ›ou will learn so much about rocks itís not even funny.

 Dr. B is amazing, I never thought that learning about rocks could be fun or interesting but he made it both. He understands that some concepts are difficult to comprehend and he explains them throughly. You have quizzes every week but as long as you come to class and take the notes you'll do well and the exams are based off of the quizzes. I would definitely reccomend this teacher... as long as you come to class every day, he's great!!

 I really enjoyed Dr. Blewett's class. He was very effective at making things easier to understand than they were in the book. He made it easy to take good notes that had just about everything you needed to study for the exams. Exams/quizzes were mostly fill in the blank/short answer and diagrams and were not difficult if you showed up for class and studied your notes. He kept class interesting and liked to make jokes. He also made it very clear that he was always there if you had any questions.

 I love Dr. Blewett. He is my favorite professor at Shippensburg!! He makes class so fun and interesting. He moves at a good pace, and doesn't give you too much information at one time. There are a couple of tests, and quizes every friday to get you a lot of points. He grades based on a curve so that works out well. He loves what he teaches, and it shows. If you love geology... def. take him!!

 I'm not sure if the other comments had the same professor I have. Dr. Blewett makes class so fun to come to. I like how he has quizzes every week because they are easy points to average into your grade. The exams are not hard! First of all, he tells you basically everything that is on them! I got a 95 on the first one and this is coming from a B-C student. He always will say "I get so excited" but he is a fun guy and he makes the national parks fun. Besides, after taking this class you know what the heck is going on geologically in our country!

 Blewett is an good teacher but requires you to memorize stupid facts. i.e Who was the father of Geology, instead of focusing on the whole picture. He is a nice guy but his jokes are not funny but he keeps throwing them out there. I guess this is what one can expect from taking a Geology course taught by a geographer. My grade is good in the class but I am getting sick of all the memorizing and not understanding the whole concept.

 Blewett is a funny nice man. He is really excited about what he teaches and always tries to inject some humor into the dull world of rocks. BUT, and this is a big BUT. Do not take this class if you are not completely positive you know what is going on or if geology is not your thing. Blewett is hard, real hard. You must read and take weekly quizzes (hard). As well he makes the tests, projects, and paper in the class as difficult as possible. Don't expect an easy ride, if you need help he is hard to find and not all tha thelpful when you do find him. HARD HARD HARD, and not all that helpful outside of class is how I explain him. But he is nice and funny. So if you are the shit at geology (or just ultra smart) take him. If not, DO NOT!

 William is a very tough teacher. He is a nice guy, but his tests are very hard and he is not open to change. There are ten point quizzes each week and they all add up to count for a big part of your grade,but instead of having an easy ten points the quizzes are difficult. He also has a habit of giving you a blank sheet of paper where you have to have diagrams memorized without any help. He is hard and I dropped it like a bad habit (too bad he didn't drop his).

 He's a nice person but has hard tests. You need to study! He always is in his office and willing to help if you ask for it.
