"Dr. Widen is an excellent instructor. She was extremely understanding and accommodating with assignments. Many students work full time and are full time students. Dr. Widen was very understanding with deadlines and I really appreciated it. She also challenged students with the reading and complicated interpretations. She is a fantastic instructor and I highly recommend her."
