This class could have been incredibly boring as, though I love Anthropology, australopithicines can be very dry. But it WASN'T! Dr. Coffing is a great professor. She's engaging, aware of the curent developments in the field, and encourages you to think for yourself. The midterm and final come almost entirely from the questions the students submit, so you have a very fair idea of what to know. She's very dedicated and interested in making you interested in the subject. I can't wait to take another class with her.
