Comments:Survey/CSI/Bloodstain - Excellent. Only professor that I feel cared about the students instead of their own ego at Baylor.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:CSI - First off, Dr. Huggins real name is "Sarge". Sarge is a great lecturer and he is a great overall human being. He needs to win an award for how great of a professor he is. He is also very funny. Course= 3 exams and a final (MC, T/F). Very straightforward tests. Sarge is the best  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:3320 - Sgt is super helpful and cares for his students. Like the earlier comments, if you like blood, gore, and guts - take him. If not, then don't. He's very attentive to student's needs. We had 3 exams and a final that were all MC and T/F. He gave us study hints, but I typed my notes in class because his powerpoints usually have a lot of writing on them. Overall, this is my minor and he makes it so much homework.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:ALL FORS - I've completed a minor in Forensic Science and taken five classes from Sarge (Intro, CSI, Impression, Firearms, and Bloodstain) and recieved A's in all five courses. Every class is pretty much the same (from a set up point of view) with 3 tests and a final. The tests are fairly easy and Sarge sends out Study Hints a couple days before the test - study those and you'll be on track to an A. I've loved every minute of my FORS track and really wish I had more time to take a couple more classes with him. If you are looking for an awesome hands-on style learning environment, this is for you. If you don't like blood, gore, graphic photos... these classes aren't for you. Sarge is a retired Texas State Trooper and Texas Ranger so he brings case files with him to review to give you a reality check in the legitimacy of his course. Be ready to work, learn, and have fun because Sarge will teach you the life of an investigator!  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:FORS 2357 - I solely took this class to boost my struggling GPA some, turns out this guy is a class act crime scene investigator who knows his stuff and is teaching the class to educate you on what it's actually like in the worse of CSI. 3 tests and a final. You need to make A's on all his exams, because his final is worth 40% of your total grade. You DO NOT need a book for this class trust me, quizlet and taking a couple notes from the class will get you an A on the tests. This guy isn't trying to make things hard on you. He's a g  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:2357 - Crime Scene Investigation - Sarge is the bomb. It's literally storytime every class about his life as a Texas Ranger. Most of the examples are cases that he has worked. He makes it to where you enjoy class because of his stories. 3 exams and a final (I think he drops the lowest one). Made A's on all the tests. If you do the extra credit he offers, there's no way you won't make an A  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:3370 - I love fors. This is my minor and it is so interesting. Srgt does repeat stories, but to me they seem to get more detailed as the level of forensics classes increase. If you need a fun credit, take his CSI or Survey class because those are super fun.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:2357 - This is my minor and Srgt. is the reason why. He is so sweet and funny. Though if you take survey, a lot of CSI class are repeated stories. Overall, the class is interesting and he is fun. This is a required class to take upper levels, but I highly suggest it. I can't express how much this stuff/topics interest and intrigue me.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1390 - Such a wonderful professor and man! Take this class. There are 3 tests, one paper, and the final. The final was cumulative but it wasn't too bad and the paper wasn't either. He's such a nice man and since he's a fomer Texas Ranger, you get to see pictures and talk through his old cases.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:FORS 1390 - So thankful that the forensics department at Baylor was blessed with Professor Huggins. He is HANDS DOWN my favorite professor at Baylor, and he comes with years of incredible experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:2357 - I've had the pleasure of doing forensic field work and taking two of Sarge's classes (CSI and Forensic Firearm Analysis). This man is a wonderful teacher because of his Texas Ranger background. It's not a history class- it's story time, which I find to be more helpful in a practical sense. He is eager to meet with students outside of class and genuinely has his students' best interests at heart. Great man, great classes.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1390 - Survey of Fors. Science - Sgt. Huggins was BY FAR my favorite teacher this semester. He is super laid back and has the most interesting stories to tell. His class is easy, but you still want to lean just because he's so interesting. Can't wait to take one of his other classes  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1390 - Sgt. Huggins is one of the best professors at Baylor. He always keeps his class interesting. He is a retired Texas Ranger so he always has the best stories! I would definitely recommend taking his class!!!! He doesn't give too much homework. We have had one paper of case scenarios, but they were really fun to work on. He gives 3 exams plus a final.   - Grade In Class:A
