Professor Bays is a great professor. I took her Asian American Studies 187C course (which is not listed below). At first she did seem a bit intimidating but she is an extremely sweet person who truly cares about her students. Throughout the course and lectures it was clear how passionate she was about the material she taught. Every discussion was very interactive and productive. She was always clear on what she wanted from her students and the high expectations she held. She always gave positive and encouraging feedback on writing assignments. But also gave constructive criticism when necessary.

When I took her course she was recovering from a back injury. There were times when she was not available for office hours, but she always made an effort to make up for it. She was always available to discuss any coursework and more than willing to help during office hours.

After finishing her course I continued to stay in contact with her. She was more than willing to write me a letter of recommendation. Most Professors write a letter of recommendation and leave it as that. However, Professor Bays assisted me every step of the way in my application for graduate school. She also helped edit my personal statement. She's done more for me than what I could have ever asked for. To me that is what a great professor does and all it took was taking the time to go to her office hours to get to know her a little more. The support and help that she has done for me, both in undergrad and after, truly speaks to me what a true genuine professor she is. It is definitely difficult to find a professor like her at UCLA.

Professor Bays is an amazing professor! Her class is really interesting and she is a very understanding person. Her tests are easy because she gives you a study guide beforehand, which she goes over in detail before the midterm and final. you will learn so much and leave with an A or an A+! definitely take her
