Worst Professor I’ve ever had. I’m a 4.0 student and this is the only class I couldn’t succeed in…let that sink in. Dr. Midgette is a nice guy but he prepares you for failure. He will rush through lectures and then exam you on topics he spent 5 minutes on. By the time of the midterm, the class average was a C. If you want to succeed don’t take Dr. Midgette

Prof Midgette might honestly be one of the worst professors I have ever had. His lecture notes are often difficult to understand and unexplanatory. During his live lectures, he moves incredibly fast and gets off track. He often describes the importance of what we're learning versus actually TEACHING us what we're supposed to be learning. He rarely shows examples of how to solve formulas and rarely shows the application of these formulas (as you would need to do on an exam). His exam questions are also overly complicated and worded incredibly strangely. He often applies his formulas in excel even though we will need to do the math manually on tests, which leaves me more confused. I really do not recommend taking this class with him. He is the only teacher to have ever caused me an immense amount of stress.

Prof Midgette is the 2nd worst professor I've taken in my entire college career. He rushes through lectures so fast you can't even take notes. If you're someone that needs to see examples of problems being done in class to understand concepts in math, don't take him. He write's out very few examples, and the ones he does are confusing because he doesn't explain why he's doing what he's doing. During COVID I think that this class was probably much easier because you can pause and resume video lectures, but you don't have that option in a classroom. I'm expecting all A's this semester, and I'm a good student. I've never rated a professor before, but this class caused an astounding amount of stress and strife in my life.

Prof Midgette definitely wants his students to succeed. He does try to make the class as interesting as possible since it's a mandatory class for CCJS majors and the subject can be boring. As for the class itself, the content starts off not too bad with difficulty but progressively gets harder. In terms of grades, there are weekly quizzes that aren't too hard as long as you look at the lectures and 6 excel assignments where you take data and apply the concepts you learn to them. Overall, you will have to put some effort in but thankfully, Midgette can be very helpful if you need him.

Amazing professor. I thought his lectures were very straightforward and easy to understand. Even though its not the most interesting/easy subject, he really tried to help students do well by thoroughly explaining how to do the questions on the problem sets. Ultimately, really great guy and professor.

Midgette was super helpful during COVID and shaped his course to be manageable while being online. He gives you all the materials you need to do well in the class. The class isn't necessarily easy but he certainly doesn't make it any harder than it has to be.

Greg is probably one of the cooler crim professors you'll have. He's done a lot of prior research on drugs and their relation to crime so he has a good understanding of what he's teaching. He has post lecture quizzes that are basically freebies if you just attend class and take a couple notes. There are memos you have to write as a group which are graded pretty leniently. For exams, he gives out review sheets and does jeopardy for extra credit. The readings are optional since he just goes over the main points during lecture. Very likable guy, 5/5.
