Choice Student Comments on Your Philosophy Courses

[from an ad for Wolcott’s Instant Pain Annihilator]

Student evaluations of teaching have their problems and limitations, but if they allow for comments, at least there’s a chance that you’ll come across a helpful observation, a bit of appreciative praise, an amusing insult, or even potential advertising copy for your course.

Take a moment to share a favorite student comment or two—positive or negative—from your courses from the past few years.
I have a hunch that there will be a surprising number of references to headaches in what philosophy professors take to be positive comments—a student recently described one of my courses as “brain throbbingly challenging,” which I count as a win—but maybe some other patterns will emerge.
