Sherrer had lived and worked in Snow, Oklahoma for many years where he raised a family while working at his family’s combination service station/convenience store. Known for his pleasant personality and incredible stamina he was one of Snow’s longstanding residents.
Sherrer is an extremely engaging professor who takes great care in his teaching of material. His lectures were always captivating and even included some hilarious anecdotes! Readings included Washington Post articles and NYT pieces (in addition to voter psychology studies from UCLA). Assignments were fair: there was a midterm test, short written assignment (completed on paper), an infographic project and final exam that Sherrer graciously graded himself – making this class my favorite at UCLA and one I would strongly suggest anyone interested in political science! Overall this class was excellent and I recommend it highly to any political science enthusiast or political science major!
