Knows his stuff. He jokes around and acts crazy (the good kind) in class! His lectures have comments and remarks that keep you awake and laughing. I'd take his class again if I could

I feel sorry for everyone who has never experienced one of Mr. Murphy's classes. He is the funniest, most entertaining teacher I have ever had. He's insane, but you really do learn a lot in his class and he's such a nice guy. Seriously, take him. If you can't get into one of his main courses, take one of his electives. You will NOT regret it!
