Comment: Gutterriez was very into making the abstract materials found in Rhet 10 your own. He would provide his own, albeit sometimes hard to relate, examples. Be sure to stay focused and pay attention in class; the material is very abstract. Let your mind wander for five minutes and you won't be able to reconnect with the rest of lecture. And ABOVE ALL, do the required readings. Life would be so much easier for you.

Comment: Gutterriez is by far one of my favorite professors on campus. He's engaging, smart and witty. He'll tell it like it is and sprinkle class time with stories from his lawyer days. He's also very helpful. Office hours were never a chore. Lastly, he's a fair grader and doesn't assign overwhelming work or readings. TAKE HIS CLASSES. It definitely affirmed my choice as a rhetoric major. That is all.

Comment: Gutterriez is a witty professor who is very engaging. He really wants you to make a point, and his grading isn't too tough. However, sometimes it is easy to get lost in his lecture. However, he tries his best to make himself available students and is very accommodating if you need help.

Comment: The material covered in this course is esoteric. Very esoteric. Fortunately, Professor Gutterriez tries really hard to give students a clear understanding of the concepts. One problem with the course, however, was that there were some readings assigned around mid-semester that contained vital background info, so they probably should have been assigned earlier. In general though, the readings are interesting if you are in to academics writing about other academics. Regardless, the professor puts an honest effort in to keeping class relatively entertaining. If all else fails you can always visit his office hours, during which Professor Gutterriez's expertise in explaining complex material truly shines. Visit with dumb questions, leave with smart answers, 110% of the time. Exams are essays with choice of prompts; some specific, some open ended, with midterm being graded harsher than final, generally speaking. Everything is about the readings, so you better understand them. Finally, his humor is really hit-or-miss, and even if it's a miss for you, class will still be reasonably enjoyable if you are interested in theories that criticize other theories that criticize postmodern society.
