~ History 102gm, Medieval People: EarlyEurope and its Neighbors, 400-1500

so much that I am going to think about incorporating green ocean saving designs in all of my future projects.  No seriously.  I intend to do that!”

~ Earth Science 107Lg, Oceanography


Frank Corsetti, Earth Sciences

“This course has been the best G.E. experience I’ve had so far.  I learned a lot about geology and can apply it to my personal life and things around me.  God job Corsetti!”

Brett Sheehan, History

“Professor Sheehan’s lectures were highly engaging and inspiring.  He taught us to think rather than regurgitate and related course material to real life connections.  If he taught all the history courses, I would major in history.”

David St. John, English
