"The connections Joe made between the language of the poems and the life experiences of the poet worked very well."
"One of the best courses I've taken because of Joe—great depth of knowledge, knows when to guide the class and when to let it go where it's going."
Course Title: Aristotle's Ethics: What is a Good Life? (Spring Term 2018)
"Relaxed and informative with good class discussion. Mr. Rowan was very knowledgeable and a good presenter."
