I feel like Professor Andalon is one of the best professors at UCLA. Although he is a well-known and very reputable professor, he is very kind and respectful to his students. He is very organized, and his lectures are very clear. One thing I want to point out is that he always dressed in business-casual clothing (dress shirts and suit jackets) to give lectures. He always spoke to us in a professional tone (as if he was speaking to his colleagues). He never demanded respect because he is a professor, but all his students love him and highly respect him because of his character. Regarding the class grade, it is made up of 10% attendance, 20% main exam (open book/multiple choice), 55% group project, and 15% individual assignment. He also gives a 5% extra credit opportunity! Professor Andalon wants you to learn and cares about what you will take away from his class. So, instead of assigning unnecessary busywork, a crazy amount of readings/papers, and nerve-wracking exams, he focuses to engage students in the course material by group collaboration work. I wouldn't say it's a super easy class (because you do have to put in extra hours to work with other group members), but it's rewarding. As long as you put in your work, you are guaranteed a good grade. I really enjoyed his class.

Course: Honors Collegium
The last evaluation has impelled me to make an evaluation of Prof TenHouten. It is true that some students will not like TenHouten. But I don't understand where all the hate is coming from. Sure he talks about his theories and finds his studies important. What professor doesn't? By the way, I remember the exact person that wrote the comment below... Let's just say if you like arguing with the professor every 5 minutes and nitpicking every single mistake/misunderstanding and love rolling your eyes then you will probably have the same experience. It is ok to be smart. And it is possible that you are smarter than a professor at UCLA. But it isn't ok to be arrogant about it. Making comments in class and pretending you are some sort of genius is annoying.

The class is easy. Take it. You might like the subject or you might not. Just try to be open minded. Either way, it's an easy A. The only assignment is a research paper and he gives you a lot of time. There is a midterm/final exam. Just take decent notes and review before class. But like all Honors courses, an A is easy to get with minimal effort.
