professor sasson is an experience. she's not always the nicest or the wisest (even though she thinks she is), but her classes are always interesting & different. her personality can get a bit unnerving but it's worth it. she knows and loves the course material and she'll change how you think.

A mind-blowing teacher and human being. I took her Education End's class and it changed the way I think and made me a more complete person. She gives value and believe in each of her students. She gives a chance to everyone and she will teach you the more she can. She believes that schooling is to learn, so she doesn't give to much work. Didn't have any exams, only short papers to give in. She is very knowledgeable, she is passionate and it seems you never have enough time in her class.

For those who are considering taking Liberal Arts, make sure that you like every course that is in it. Especially religions, because if you don't like it you will have a hard time like I did. This professor has really seen so much and learned so much and wants to teach everything she knows to her students. She really knows her field and I really respect her. For her exam and assignments though, make sure to NOT do last minute things, it will show in your grades (been there done that).

Love this professor! I've taken her twice and she makes class extremely fun and makes you want to learn. Her JCI final exam sounds scare and the JCI 10 page paper as well, but just know you stuff and you will do super well! Just read the articles in the course pack and memorize them ! She is super kinda and will walk you through your papers and assignments. Please take her if you get the chance

She's an incredibly inspiring and knowledgable human being. If you don't have tough skin before taking her course, you will after. She is bluntly honest and just as caring. Professor Sasson's not a conventional traditional teacher and because of that, I have probably learned more from her in 16 weeks than I have from my entire high school experience. I don't think that anybody can pull off teaching religion like she can.

Omg I love her, love listening to her talk, and I honestly miss her class. She is hands down my fav prof in the school. Will teach you life lessons. You HAVE to take her, she's inspiring and funny. I was always scared to approach her or talk in class but if you're interested shes a great person to converse with. She's not scared to point you out haha, or put you on the spot. About the actual work, you do have to put some effort, but she makes it interesting.

One of the coolest human beings Ive ever met, changed my life. But I dont remember a single thing from the class except one story she told and I got my only tattoo because of it.
She hated me and I did badly, but funny enough I'm an A student. I guess I had a lot to learn about "the way"
Taught me meditation.

She is an inspiration. Her class "education's end" is super fun and involves lots of discussion. There is no tests, but there are a lot of readings and summaries. But it's definitely worth it, I have learned so much in this class and I feel really lucky that I took this course.

She talks a lot about herself and her boxing career. It's really hard to get good grades with her but her classes are also really weird. She's also about 10 mins late every class so don't bother going before. Would recommend her if you want more fireworks in your life.

Would never take this teacher again. Never offered a word of advice in office hours except to rewrite the entire paper. Looks down upon non-liberal arts students. Positive feedback is absent. Always late to class but has zero tolerance for anyone else who steps out of line. Does not provide detailed descriptions of any assignments or tests and only presents tentative dates until the last minute.
