Pete Nelson is an incredible professor who is undoubtedly passionate about what he does. I found this course to be incredibly interesting. While there was a lot of reading, and getting started with GIS was certainly a learning curve, Prof Nelson is accommodating and easy to learn from. Additionally, the work, while sometimes a lot, is incredibly valuable and deeply interesting so that it often it doesn't feel like work. Would highly recommend this class.

Peter Nelson is phenomenal - really smart, very passionate, so so nice and caring about his students. But Place and Society is the dumbest class if you're not a geography major, and the only people who take it are geography majors because they have to and it helps them decide what to focus their major on in the future.

Professor Nelson is the real deal. Class material was interesting and he is probably the best lecturer I have had at midd. Most of the grade is from three fairly easy but relatively time intensive projects and a take home midterm.
