If you had Calimente as your teacher, you got a treat. The man was so animated, class was always funny. He taught us law and film class over a decade ago, but every student I know from back then agrees that he was an amazing and interesting teacher. I had some depression issues at the time and was very shy, and he seemed sensitive to that. I snapped at him once for talking during the movie in film class and he just smiled, happy I had finally spoken up.

It's been years, but my closest friends and I still agree that Mr. Calimente is the funniest (easily), most creative and, above all, most genuinely capital-G Good instructor/person that we ever had anywhere. You'll find he is what a teacher should be, no matter how you think he runs his classes or plans them. The real heroes of this world were and are the great eccentrics making art out of bureaucracy, and Mr Calimente is here in PC quietly among their ranks, always inspired. God bless him.

In order to get the full PC experience you have to take a class with Cal. If he loves you, you're set for the whole semester. He is the whole package; knowledge, crazy, jokes, etc. I enjoyed ISAP, didn't learn much but his dirty jokes and dramatics made up for it. His unit tests are super easy as long as you just review your notes. Does a lot of power points but it's all good because he includes some interesting 'real life' examples. Just learn how to write notes fast and read between the lines.

He's insane yet amazing at the same time. Stay in his class long enough and he gets to know you well that he'll be really chill. Easy 90's as long as you attend every class and pay attention, he's weird but he makes the dirtiest jokes if you listen. 9.7/10 slamdog millionaire

LEGENDARY!!!! Mr. Cal is possibly the most genius person I have ever met, he encourages you to think outside the box and sees the good in your art even when you don't see it yourself. He is the best teacher I have ever had and I truly wish more teachers were as great as he is :)

Mr. Calimente is very eccentric. He is a very, very curious person and when he teaches, he aims to encourage exploration when learning. Mr. Cal knows a lot about pretty much any topic you can think of and he's very helpful even though he supplies long winded answers when asked about course material. Mr. Calimente is an artist and you have to remember that the way he teaches is the way he creates, that being said, if he mentions an obscure topic, research it. He's a very interesting teacher.

He knows what he is doing especially from his experience. I wish he marked differently because you can definitely tell that he'll only give in marks from the students he sees working or look like they are being productive. He gets a little off topic while explaining but its only to get the point across

He's a pretty smart guy, but in NO MEANS a good teacher. Sorry. He showed favouritism, and to this day I'm still angry about the mark I got in his class. I've gotten lower marks in other classes, and I can quite honestly say that most of the time I've deserved it, but not this time. There was a lot of group work involved in this class
