What’s the Best Way to Find the Right College Professor?

Andrey Burmakin

-by Reagan Wempe

Your class schedule is perfectly made where you have just enough time for a power nap right after lunch – because you’ll probably need it before that dreaded afternoon chemistry class.  You have no idea who your professor is yet: male or female, easy or hard, are they even a good teacher?  Check them out on RateMyProfessor!

I’ll be honest – I’ve used this website on multiple occasions when I was in college.  You simply type in your school and search for the class and section you’re signed up for.  Thanks to classmates who’ve gone before you, the professors have ratings beside their name on:

  • Overall Quality
  • Helpfulness
  • Clarity
  • Easiness
  • **and if you’re lucky the chili pepper will be colored red meaning you’re professor is HOT!

Previous students have posted their reviews about classes taken under this professor, but I definitely took them with a grain of salt because for those that never showed up to class, of course the professor isn’t going to be terribly helpful to them.  Just things to keep in mind.

In my experience, they’ve been mostly accurate with professor descriptions.  This is a neat website if you want to scratch that curiosity itch!  So before that first day of class, make a little visit to and see what “extra” information you find!
