University students can be a tough crowd. For proof, look no further than an anonymous course evaluation or a ratemyprofessors.com review that pulls no punches. So maybe it’s a good thing some professors aren’t taking their reviews to heart – a few even agreed to read them on camera.
Here’s our round-up of self-deprecating humour brought to you by students at The Varsity newspaper at the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia Law Revue, The Peak newspaper at Simon Fraser University, and Studio Q at Queen’s University.
University of Toronto
“The traits that distinguish a good philosopher are sorely missing in this professor of mediocre verbal and analytical skills.”
University of British Columbia
“2005 called. It wants its pop culture references back.”
Simon Fraser University
“She will mock your aspirations then cackle over the remains of your spirit.”
Reviewer 1: “I thought the course moved at a good pace and a good pattern.”
Reviewer 2: “I thought the course moved far too quickly and was very difficult to understand.”
