Annette Hamel is one amazing professor to have! She cares about her students and is very passionate about her career in the Communication field. Her exams are pretty straightforward and are easy. She is part of the reason why I am thinking about majoring in the Communication field. 10/10 would recommend taking ant Communication class taught by this professor.

She is an awesome professor. Communication was not my major. I am taking this class for my minor and she makes things interesting during the class. Very nice lady and your exams are 50 multiple choice questions. If you are very good with M/C, this is the class you want to take with her. I did Okay even M/C wasn't my favorite types of exams.

Professor Hamel is one of the most wonderful professors here at WMU. She is funny, caring, and so passionate about the subject, even in an intro class. Her classroom is warm and welcoming and is just a great environment to learn in. There are lots of on the spot presentations but they're nothing to worry about. This was my favorite class this semester.

Didn't do as good as I should have. Gives you around a hundred terms to learn for a test and the test is way different than you imagine. You think you did good but when you get your grade back you are confused about how you got that grade. Extra credit is very rare, a lot of class participation. Kept students involved which were great.

Awesome teacher. Made the class feel like a family. Very clear on what we needed to know for each test and the tests were easy. Assignments we simple but really helped me learn what we needed to know.

Professor Hamel is an amazing educator and has an extremely impressive track record as a researcher. She is your best resource if you want real advice and support in the Communication field. She's pretty much the Holy Grail of the Communication department for assistance/recommendations. Her class rocks and I learned a TON, plus I found my new career. Best professor ever!

Professor Hamel is a very great teacher and nice person. Attend class and follow her slides and you will get an A. The textbook I never bought, but I never needed it. She is very helpful and not much writing involved. Highly recommended.

has been one of my best professors so far. The slides we use are clear and easy to understand. Before the tests, she goes over the study guide to make things a lot easier. The wording on the tests is never ambiguous. She involves the class a lot and when I got 100% on an exam I got the ring of excellence - she rewards it to the highest grade.

The tests are pretty easy. The assignments are kind of graded hard, but you still get 80s or above. 10 quizzes thru the semester and she tells you the questions. Awesome teacher, I would recommend her to all!

This class was cool. The tests were easy but there were a lot of quizzes, which was ok because she usually gave the answers to them in the class before the quiz. Attendance is mandatory if you want to do well. The last test is kind of hard, but manageable. Professor Hamel is pretty nice too.

Made class fun and time pass by fast, actually liked going. There are usually quizzes in every class, but they are very easy and are a big of your grade. There are only have 2 homework assignments otherwise the rest is just group projects and usually gives you a 100 if you do it. Test are have more example questions than definitions but are still not to tough.

Professor Hamel is AWESOME. She is very straightforward with the material and teaches through slide packets u can print off. She tells you EXACTLY what will be on exams u just have to study a bit to get things straight and ur golden. Your grade is based on a few group assignments, quizzes (she gives you the questions the class before), a midterm, and a final.

Professor Hamel is such a great teacher. You have to show up to get the concept of the class, but she makes it worth it. She is a great resource and WMU should be proud to have her as a professor!

Great professor. This is a challenging course but she explains everything very well and is willing to help out anytime. Listens to students and highly regards their input as to what is working in the class. Really sparked my interest in Communication. Very highly recommended.

Professor Hamel is awesome. The test was challenging and covered a lot of material, but if you keep up along the way, there is no problem. The material in class is very relevant and she always teaches in a way that is fun and easy to understand. If she is teaching any class. TAKE IT! P.S. She really cares about the success of her students!

Interpersonal Communication was incredibly easy. The Quiz questions come from the HW so those are easy and a little cramming is needed before tests. I didn't like her teaching style so I only showed up for tests and quizzes then taught myself from the book and got an A. The class also had a huge curve so that was a bonus.

Professor Hamel makes her course easy to pass if you put in the work. There are no homework grade, only quizzes, and exams. The quizzes questions are directly off the homework assignment, so if you do the homework you should get 100% on the quizzes. Very nice, good at teaching, and wants to see you succeed. Just be prepared to work.

Professor Hamel is an excellent professor. She is demanding, yet reasonable. Her board work is extremely clear, and her explanations are easy to understand. I've taken her three times and would recommend her to anybody.

Very easy professor. Read her lectures and do the study guides before the tests and you will receive an A. I loved her, she is easy going, very nice and helpful. She reads off the slides but she knows her material. Her tests are based on her lecture notes so if you study for that for the tests you'll be good.
