I probably pulled a total of 4 overnighters finishing Skinner papers during the year. They're long and boring. The class itself is fun, though. He's funny, quirky, and calls you Mr./Ms. _____.

Skinner is cool, but he pushes his opinions on you too much. He tends to make your decisions for you, which can be annoying. But you learn a lot in the class.
