Will is an amazing teacher and I recommend taking a class with him if possible. Sometimes he says that we is disorganized but I think that he is too harsh on himself. The classes are a flipped model so we watch videos outside of class and do activities in class. Great class highly recommend.

Most homework was watching videos. These came in place of lectures, so instead of lectures during class time, we did group activities. I really liked this and found it to be beneficial, however it does mean that you need to focus when watching video lectures outside of class. The labs are mostly outdoors and so cool. Really recommend this course.

I had a great time in this class! Even though we only met twice a week, the class atmosphere was very fun and relaxed, and my classmates felt like friends. We laughed a lot. The course material was pretty easy and covered a lot of ground without going very deeply into any one subject (but that was to be expected, as it is a 100 level class). Overall, absolutely a positive experience, and I definitely want to be an ECSC major now!

Will is an amazing professor who is super passionate about the material. The class is flipped, so you watch the lectures and take notes before the class. The labs are mostly outdoors and are a lot of fun. Highly recommend this course.

Will is an awesome professor. A little all over the place at times but he’s super into what he does and is very passionate about the class. Flipped classroom format, so generally need to spend about an hour watching lecture videos before class. Class time he lectures a little, answers questions, and you work on worksheets. The labs are all just field trips. Lab reports can be a little tedious but overall pretty fun. Exams cover a lot and can be challenging but he tells you exactly what to study. If you put a little time in to study it’s a pretty easy A, but if you get behind it can get tough quickly. Highly recommend the class and Will as a prof.

Will is an amazing professor. This class is taught in a flipped-classroom style. As long as you watch the videos before you come to class, you will do fine. I loved this class and would recommend it for anyone!

This course was so much fun. Will is such a great professor and is super nice and funny. He is really passionate about geology and his enthusiasm was contagious. The labs in this class are fantastic; most of them are outdoors and are a lot of fun. I would 100% recommend taking this course or any class that Will teaches.
