03/10/13 - Incredible teacher! Extremely knowledgeable and very clear in his expectations and grading policies. His tests (all essays) are pretty difficult but if you are determined and put in effort you will adapt quickly. He has faith in the students he sees potential in, and he will push you to develop as a scholar and a writer. Show More Show Less

10/14/10 - It's 5:30 in the morning, I'm tired and feeling sick and I've been studying for Gurry's IR class, as well as another, most of the evening. I do not at all regret taking the class. Gurry is fantastic: he is the man and does not mind too much when Philippe is late to class- which Philippe appreciate Show More Show Less

Mr. Gurry's classes are fun, he loves to engage the students, and loves those who genuinly work hard. Plus, he was in the movie Love Story at Harvard. 'nuff said. He is the best. dont sass him though Show More Show Less
