There is one professor in particular who provided a negative experience—Prof. Richard Borie. He was the only professor teaching certain major-required courses. He was unapproachable for help, a hard grader, gave really hard exams suitable more for graduate student-level work and was the reason I ended up with a lower than expected GPA. The Borie courses were combined grad/undergraduate courses, but the course work was not leveled. Everyone took the same tests and the curve was based on graduate and undergraduate performance. I felt the expectations for success were unrealistic. I was constantly struggling in Borie's class due to the lack of help or additional explanation when I asked for it. The department should look for a replacement for him.
