he is a nice guy but EXTREMELY boring. I could never pay attention for more than 10 minutes without getting distracted. Gives a lot of assignments worth 10-15% but are relatively easily, just boring so you end up not wanting to do them. Like I said, he is nice but I definitely would not take him again or reccomend him to anyone

Clifford Hastings hands out exams that are pretty easy if you study for them. However, there is a lot of readings and he can be really boring in class. I know he is seeking for the best in his students but he talks toooo much

I had him for intro to geography. He was a really nice teacher, but I didn't learn anything in his class. His classes were really boring and everyone was on their phones but he wouldn't say anything. He's a very easy teacher and his tests are not that hard.

I am taking Hasting's tourism class. He has the most unclear instructions ever, and rambles on often about nothing. It is never clear when to take notes, and the way he words his questions on essay instructions could NOT BE MORE CONFUSING. Everything he says is contradictory and impossible to understand. I am writing this now as I am working on one of his essays. His instructions are a page and a half long, and it IS SO UNCLEAR what he wants from us. I STRONGLY ADVISE NOT TAKING HIM. SERIOUSLY.

I've had Cliff for geo and IS. Classes can be boring but I loved it anyways. He's a super easy grader and super approachable. He cancels class often and hardly pays attention to due dates. Take him for an easy semester.

A very nice guy. Unfortunately he has very boring lectures, just try to keep your eyes open throughout class and you'll do fine. Class is easy to pass with little effort, tests are usually open book and he's almost always available for help outside and after class.

This teacher is really cool. Although sometimes his class can get boring in terms of the lectures, he can be funny at times. In terms of the course (Intro to Geo) as long as you take notes you'll be able to pass the tests. He's a very generous marker and not tough at all. Is very helpful. But I didn't walk away learning much. All in all an easy class to pass and not stressful whatsoever. He is very lenient with due dates! Awesome guy.

He's a friendly guy and very knowledgeable, but his lectures are monotonous and he is very vague about assignments and due dates. Not very computer literate, so no grades or assignments get posed online, and he takes a long time to respond to MIOs. You really have to go see him during office hours to succeed.
I enjoyed taking his class only because if you go see him in his office, then he'll give you all the help you need. Just don't expect to get much out of the lectures.

had him for QM. He should not be teaching that class. It seems like he's learning the material while he's "teaching" it. Although for Geography he was a good teacher (rated him for QM).

Not a good teacher DO NOT TAKE HIM TRUST ME! He gives study guides for the tests and then nothing he tells you to study is on the test. He pulls stuff out of his ears. Rude and chooses who he likes.
