I have all the love in the world for Dr. Edwards. She's amazing, inspirational, and makes me realize that there is true hope in the world. Her lectures are almost perfect and she will be there to help you pass the class. For me, I thought this class was going to be difficult, but she made it so much better. Can't wait to have her as a prof again!

This class is required for the school of COM and only offered once a semester so I had to take it with Autumn. Decent class, quiz after every class, 8 homework assignments (easy), 3 exams and a final (the exams are tough. You have to study hard), and some other points. Overall decent class and nice professor. Lectures full of info and lots of writing.

Took for COM 3000, she's brilliant but she doesn't do the best job of explaining things thoroughly and I think it's because she is so smart she kind of expects you to already know since its an upper-level course. it's a lot of information, she doesn't take attendance but you can't afford to miss. would take her again for another course though.

This class was very useful, but it puts your research skills to the test. She gives great feedback and is willing to work with you. I took 2 of her classes and she really knows her stuff. Essentially just do the work and you will get an A. Take detailed notes because she reuses examples in exams.

Autumn's class was a lot of fun. She gives many great examples to go along the text. There's barely any homework and no tests during the semester. Absolutely recommend.

Dr. Edwards is an exceptional professor. Communication Inquiry is not an easy class but she made simple to understand. She's very easy to approach and will make time for her students. Take advantage of office hours. I am very happy to have taken this course with her and to have worked with her in the Communication and Social Robotics Lab.

Dr. Edwards is amazing, and she cares so deeply about the subject she's teaching. She has been endlessly helpful to me, and I've learned so much from her.

Dr. Edwards is very intelligent about the course. The course is difficult, be prepared for math concepts. The incomplete notes do not match lecture and she goes through the 1.5 hour lecture in a half an hour or less. Show up to class, take diligent notes, go to office hours and you will pass. Her humor and southern drawl make the course bearable.

Dr. Edwards is really passionate about what she's teaching, and she's really helpful in explaining stuff that you don't understand immediately. Com 2010 wasn't an easy course, but she definetly helped me understand concepts that didn't come easily to me.

You can tell from the first day that Professor Edwards absolutely LOVES what she does. She is passionate about Communication research and it shines through. Hands down one of the best professors I've had a Western. Highly recommend her!

Great class and great teacher. It is just important to show up to class in order to do well and also important to study quite a bit for the exams.

Absolutely LOVE Autumn! She's great. I have her for Com 2010 AND Com 1700 and I'm bummed I can't find Fall classes with her. Super funny, and very helpful. She's extremly down to earth and dosn't give out too many homework assignments, and gives study guides for her exams. Take a class with her and you will be glad you did.

Autumn is the best professor I've ever had. She is caring and extremely knowledgeable of the topic (which, by the way, was the best class I've ever taken in college as well). Take this class with Autumn... you will love it!

nice friendly cheery teacher. you don't need the book. everything we used out of it she gives you in class. easy homework. little group work. tests are tricky and hard! but she does curve it. u must know every aspect on everything. i am an A student but I got lows C's on all the tests. I passed with a B with 100% on all the homework and attendance.

It's too bad COM2010 is a terrible class because Autumn is great. Go to every class because it is hard material. A good knowledge of Algebra is beneficial. Autumn treats everyone like real people and will fully answer any questions you have. Responds to email very quick. Easy on the eyes with a cute southern laugh.

Dr. Edwards is just a genuinely nice person! She is extremely fair in all aspects. However, her tests are a bit difficult. If you work hard, come to class, and show her you are a good student you will never fail one of her classes.

She is a great teacher - one of the best I've had so far. Do all of your homework, and show up for every class and you'll do fine. Skip a class and you'll regret it.
