"Rate My Professor" and other websites dedicated to giving angry (or occasionally complimentary) students a voice, can also sometimes be hilariously cruel. Professors reading their own reviews can feel like celebrities reading Tweets from nasty trolls and bots, and students can often get oddly specific with their descriptions of teaching practices. Then, of course, there are the reviews based strictly on how attractive a professor is measured in hot peppers. The internet for college students is the wild West.
So, when a recent Reddit user asked, "Professors of Reddit: Do you ever look yourself up on RateMyProfessor and if so, what is the funniest review someone has ever left about you?" professors were ready to share their most memorable "student evaluations." Remember, that professor you think is mean for making you work hard is also a person with feelings! Be nice-especially if you're leaving a review before winter break and their whole family is about to make fun of them over the holidays for their "wicked witch of the campus-avoid like plague-smells weird, but pretty hot" review.
