Selected Student Feedback
Economics of State and Local Government
"I like that the course was not based on power points and was instead notes taken on the board with the professor. This made the material easier to understand and facilitated interaction with the professor. I also believe this stimulated the class's interest on the subject. Cullen Wallace did a great job teaching the course."
"The very best teacher I have ever had at FSU, inspiring teacher with great teaching methods and a friendly personality. Does not test to see if you have absolutely learned and are an expert of a subject but rather tests if you are learning which in turn inspires students to try harder."
"Cullen Wallace was an excellent teacher who was clearly knowledgable and passionate about the course material which made the topics more interesting."
"Absolutely incredible course. It has easily been one of my favorites in my time here. Cullen makes it very easy to get passionate about whatever topic he addresses because he presents so clearly and with such detail. He does a very good job of making sure his students understand concepts before moving along."
"Nothing about his instructional methods need improvement in my opinion! I enjoyed his methods of working on the whiteboard each class because it made you come to class for the course materials and it was very engaging to go through the topics together as a class rather than having a powerpoint up."
