Prof Crosby is a great professor and somehow managed to get us to participate in an 8am class. I also learned a lot about the world and myself in this class, which i am very thankful about.
Nevertheless, here are some important points to consider:
- attendance is required. You get one unexcused absence. After that, your grade drops a whole letter for every class missed. Two tardies count as an absence
- this class has a huge workload. The homework took me more time than chem, bio and math combined.
- you need to participate in class.

Next to that, the class is really fun and truly an easy A or even A+

This professor is as simple and easy as it can get. Show up to class, do your homework, you get an A+. Professor grades on completion, so if you don't get an A, that's on you.

I love this class. Professor Crosby never failed to entertain us and keep us engaged. He was very understanding of online learning. However, there was a lot of busy work assigned. The readings are interesting as they are pretty universal. Professor Crosby values learning, which is apparent when he gives intense feedback on essays and held mandatory individual meetings with each student. I recommend taking this class, there are only 3 essays plus homework assignments.

Great professor, great class. It was a pity not taking this one as an in-person class due to the pandemic.

I loved Dr. Crosby! He was so nice and funny and enthusiastic at 8AM. You are essentially guaranteed an A+ as long as you do all the assignments and go to class everyday. I don't know one person who didn't ace this class. He's not out to tank your grade. If you get the chance to take him, TAKE IT!

Crosby is a G. My friend took another ENGCOMP 3 prof and got destroyed. Take it with Crosby, do the readings, and enjoy your grade.

Dude was so chill. I actually learned a lot of life lessons from him. He’s a very admirable guy who used to work with kids who had severe autism and you can see that just by how chill and lax he is. Dresses like the whitest African-American guy I know and I love it. Underarmour hat, flannel, blue jeans, and converse haha, he’s a figure. Class was super easy, even though he gives busy work it’s very manageable and boosts your grade to where you can’t get a bad grade unless you just don’t do the work. Some of the articles were actually very interesting! Loved the guy, totally recommend taking his class... we only had to write one in depth essay and it was very fun. He really cares about his students.
