Coe is a great person. You can tell that she loves what she does. The class was mostly her talking about what you read in the homework. She gave good feedback for essays and offered to rewrite your essays after shes gave some comments on how to improve them. Overall, it was a good class.

A great introduction to Middlebury's liberal arts curriculum (FYSE). Coe was such a cool and amazing professor who's super down to earth and you can tell from her enthusiasm and passion that she really love teaching. You learn a lot of very important things in class that are valuable. Great professor, great class! 10/10 would recommend.

This course was overall engaging. Professor Coe is very passionate about Desert Ecology. She helps her students debunk all sorts of desert myths that have been normalized for generations. There are weekly readings and questions that she covers in class. She also encourages discussion throughout the lectures.

The course material primarily centers on biology and ecology, but it also weaves elements of the humanities. Prof. Coe pays close attention to detail. The course itself is well-rounded and highly engaging.

Despite not being an ES major, I enjoyed my time in Kirsten's class. If you choose to engage, the material can be very interesting and I definitely learned a lot. She also helps prepare you for future courses in the department as there is a large emphasis on proper research and paper structure (which she guides you through). There is a fair amount of reading required, but Kirsten is one of the coolest professors I've had, and I would recommend this course.

Deserts is an amazing first-year seminar. Kirsten is one of my favorite professors. They are very passionate and knowledgeable about dryland systems. The class was not too difficult, and I felt that I learned a lot. Would highly recommend it.
