The exuberance with which Bill Hanigsberg approaches the discipline of sociology, specifically the subject of social deviance, left on me an impression and gifted me an experience which has helped keep alive my hearts hunger for knowledge often oppressed, nearly to death, by the praxis of paper assignments and test-taking.
His Sagan-like qualities, steeped in humor, encapsulated in his hopeful encouragement and wonder, deeply affected me as a student in a way I don't think I could ever repay.

He's one of those teachers that loves to talk and changes subjects so often. Hes very helpful when it comes to papers always able to over look them and is usually always in his office for office hrs

He talks so much and so fast,switches from topic to topic (not related to class work) a million times. He is funny and gives you chances to re-do exams but very hard course to follow in terms of notes

really poor teacher, gets off topic too many times but in all wants his students to pass. he's very unclear but he'll give alot of options to redeem your grades.

Bill is an amazing teacher actually learned a lot in his class. I was in his intro class and it was great. But you have to listen of course but dont worry its fun. He wants you to succeed.

AWESOME TEACHER!! Bill is brilliant, friendly, clear and funny. Even when he starts veering off topic, he's fascinating! Just listen, people. Get annoyed and frustrated all you want, but if you just listen to him, you won't believe how much you'll learn. Great guy!

I didn't learn anything from his class. " sociology of health and illness". He is just like talking to and laughing at himself. he has his own world. The good thing is everyone passed in his class.

Thinks he's funny, not very. Talks about random stuff, all you have to do is read what he tells you in the book once the night before and you'll be fine for his tests.
