Where do I start with this one...? She is an incredibly bubbly and passionate professor, but she is as disorganized and scatter-brained as they come. This class was an absolute s#*t show. She would say we were going to do one thing in lecture or lab and completely change things up a night before. The labs were not her own, but copied from some other institution. It was obvious she hadn't really gone over them thoroughly because we would hit so many obstacles that she was always surprised by. She was not at all professional and that seems to have a lot to do with where teaching is on her list of priorities. She's obviously very preoccupied with family and the gym since they take up a good portion of lecture time. I don't understand how she is allowed to work here. What a trainwreck. She's the only professor that teaches this course, so we're SOL with this one...

Pros: Dr. Lammert is a very enthusiastic professor who is one of the few professors to make 7:40am classes bearable. She is very knowledgeable in the subject, but often does not have time to dedicate to her students. She is also very understanding if there are issues in the assignment and pushed the due date back.Cons: This class is a shitshow. I love Dr. Lammert as a person, but she does not know how to run a proper class. She often gives excuses for why she didn't something (her internet was down, so she couldn't answer our questions, ect). There are still assignments that we did over a month ago that still have not yet been graded. No one knows whats going on- labs don't work, things get changed around last minute, and the objectives are unclear. You learn how to do something after you turn in your assignment, not before. Also if you don't know how to use JMP ask your stats professor. Know all the ins and outs of it. I did not know how to use JMP and its the hardest part of the class. RedJade is another program to use, but I still don't understand it. Set up: There are 3 midterms, a final presentational on a sensory test the class conducts, and a handful of lab memos, stats assignments, quizzes, and "questionnaires(like easier versions of the stats assignments)." Most people did poorly on the first midterm, but improved after that (I think, our other midterm grades are still not posted). I have friends in the class who took it last year, so I asked them for help on the stats assignments. The class isn't hard material wise, it's hard because the stats portion of the class isn't clearly explained before you have to do the assignments. When I took the first midterm, I got most of the comprehension questions right, just not the stats. Overall: I wrote something similar on her course evals, so hopefully she improves. She changed some things from last years class, so I think she will take them to heart. Last year students had to do their lab reports after doing the labs during the 3 hour time slot, so I am glad we don't have to do that.

This is the class that finally pushed me to the edge to switch out of food science. I took this class last year and completely hated every second of it. Lammert is such a nice person and bubbly I would love to be her friend but she is THE WORST PROFESSOR. The lab reports were so so so HARD because she was so scatter brained in explaining the information. She would change everything all the time and her grading was so incredibly harsh for her miscommunication of the information. SO unprofessional. I felt like I couldn't trust her as an industry professional and thats how I knew this major was not for me what so ever. The food science department quite frankly really needs to get their shit together because I had several peers who switched out of this major because the program and professors are just so so SO inconsistent. I never had a food science professor in my two years or so in the major that I liked or any particular class that really confirmed I even liked the major at all because the professors were just so bad. The department really needs to up their professionalism. Good luck if you have this class and her.

Dr Lathrop was kind of strict and mean. Her grading was very harsh for the lab reports and she had very strict rules, such as professional dress Tuesday. Her tests were very hard and she went through the slides very quickly in class. Many times you don't have any other option but to take her, especially as an FSN major 1st year, for FSN 125, but just beware that you need to pay super close attention in class and follow some very strict rules.
