Powerpoints
This course was a lot to learn specially a lot of business vocabulary words. i found it really helpful that for every chapter you throughly explained the materials in a very understanding and easy to follow. Powerpoints was very helpful, also defining each definitions was good because some of those words are so hard to understand.
She put us in groups and had us work together...
This course helps me to know more about business, and Mrs. Blalock have a good job teaching BUS120.
I learned how business operates.
Mrs. V had a great teaching style. Very aid back and relaxed. I feel so comfortable in her class.
Well what I found most valuable is that there are things that mrs. Blalock thought us that I has no idea could be interesting. She really taught the principles of business fun and exciting.
Practical application towards everyday business operations, and group projects helped brainstorm ideas that I probably wouldn't have thought of.
She really made me think about the real world and not follow what is on the T.v to do my own research and find my own solution and how to think like C.E.O.
Being able to contribute as an individual to my group and class.
the knowledge and the teacher.
The things that I found most helpful and valuable in this course, was the fact that Mrs. Blalock is a very inspiring yet a very knowledgeable instructor. She know a lot about what she is teaching and she engages with us to get involved. Mrs. Blalock also makes a point that causes us to want to come to class and learn. Overall she is an awesome teacher. I really enjoyed being in her class.
Learning the different components of business and I think that the group project we had to complete was valuable because we got to take the concepts we learned in class and apply them to a business that we know of or liked.
The ability to work in teams through out the whole semester.

Vera Blalock is a supper teacher. She needs a raise.
I WISH THAT THERE WERE MORE INSTRUCTORS LIKE MRS. BLALOCK, AND I WISH SHE INSTRUCTED MORE COURSES.
Mrs. Blalock is very funny. She has a great personality she could make the most boring material interesting with the way that she would go over it in class. I very much enjoyed having her as a teacher.
I recommend others to take this course. There is a lot of content, but the class is enjoyable!

4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
What I found most valuable about the course was the different elements of a business. The course really went into detail of what helps a business succeed and what makes a business.
The overall course covering all aspects within business.
The structure of the course helped me learn effectively.
The material was great and the book was very good. The information was easy enough to understand for someone just learning about business.
Through out this whole online course I found that Mrs. Blalock offered numerous resources to assist us the students in succeeding in her class. The curriculum was perfect for a college level course and helped me to have a better business mindset when approaching this type of field of study.
Questions that I had towards this course, was clearly explained to me in details by mrs. Blalock. Assignments were made easy for us to understand.
I love that Ms. Blalock was consistent in communicating with the class and answering questions regarding homework assignments and group project material throughout the semester. I value a teacher ethic and standards toward students and Ms. Blalock has been very straight forward and clear on her rules and her policies for us students to get work turned into and on time. I notice that even though I was not able to physically meet with my instructor, I felt her sincerity and concern for the well-being of my education and for her class. She has helped me to gain a better understanding on business and economics of finances and management to broaden my horizons on businesses, employment, and dynamics in business. Especially with all of the helpful power points and reminders via laulima for our assignments.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
For an online class she is very efficient in responding back to students, whether it is through email or by phone if there is a problem or a question that you need to ask her, she responds right away.
She always was organized and had a timely manner for beginning course material and was specific on what assignment needs to be done and when to have it submitted by.
She responds quickly to emails.
I found that the class was easy to navigate and that everything was laid out well and plenty of communication was sent out.
Vera Blalock is a marvelous instructor who does not see her job as just an occupation, but she takes pride and effort in making sure that all her students have the necessary tools to succeed in her class.
She answered my questions in a timely matter that made it easy for me to understand the work forth is course.
She truly makes the effort to help and assist my needs as her student and being very open minded to what situations us students face.
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
For the weekly assignments the workload is okay, but maybe make the assignments worth more points, since the there is a lot to the assignments.
I think it was really good any improvements would be nonsense.
Keep everything the same.
Don't have any improvements.
The only thing I would have to say is to keep the deadline for assignments consistent on Sunday's only instead of having certain assignments due on Friday or Wednesday.
Keep on doing what your doing because it is working.

I find that it was really helpful to rethink about my career and Mrs. Blalock helped me to see what I can do in the future.
Learned more knowledge about hotel and what they do
go through course deatailed
that there are different types of hospitality in the world
This particular course is exactly where I want to be. These islands thrive on tourism. Learning on what the trends are, why hotels and other guest friendly businesses are organized the way they are. This in turn helps me understand everything more about how the island I live on works to help me achieve a great work opportunity.
The most valuable and helpful thing I learned about this course was just how big the hospitality industry is and just how big apart it is to our state and island economy.

I learned more about the food service industry.
Making a mock restaurant n understanding the way it develops
Being a college student and having had the privilege to have taken some of her classes throughout the semesters that I've been at Kauai Community College. I have found that instructor Blalock has a lot of field experience in the courses that she teaches. I would also like to mention as a instructor she goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She puts in a lot of time in trying to organize events as to where her students can be faced with real life scenarios. One example of this was when I had to participate in the career fair at the convention hall. At the time I had a really shy personality when it came to socializing with people I didn't know. So what she did was placed me at the main entrance and had me greet everyone coming into the event and give them flyers of all the vendors at the event. Through experiences like this which was one of many experiences, I have found that I have developed on a personal level to have became a more matured and socially confident individual. I would also like to mention that because of her aggressive real life simulation scenario method of teaching and her push to have her students to do more than what is just expected of them . I have gained a drive in pursuing a career in the hospitality field. This is mainly because of having such an inspirational instructor like her it makes a student like me to really want to pursue and further my studies in the field of hospitality. KCC Student Kimo Koa Palama
The most valuable thing I learned in this class to to have confidence in myself.
The daily participation activities helped with the concepts from the chapter.
I think learning the kitchen/restaurant layouts were very helpful. I also really liked the hand on experience like the pot washing. I mean actually I hated it, but that's a good thing because it makes you think twice about working in food and beverage. No just kidding Mrs. Blalock. You know I'm just kidding. I also like the fine dining!! Of course who didn't like that?
this course gave me a better understanding of food and beverage. i really enjoyed this class.
Professor Blalock went into great depth on how to quite literally open up your own F&B establishment, and what the underlying research and development should be when deciding certain factors. I feel confident in the information I need to gain in starting my own establishment, based on information Professor Blalock has either discussed or demonstrated.
It was full of insight and knowledge
One thing i found most valuable and helpful about this course overall i learned so many different aspects in the hospitality and tourism industry specially in the food and beverage. I could distinguish the differences of every material need for this course. Powerpoint's and having discussion for every chapters was very helpful.This class was very informative and i enjoyed it a lot.
everything she taught pertains to real life situations in food and beverage

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I learned how to make a running restaurant with my group.
When ever I don't understand something she helps me.to understand.
The thing that I found most valuable about Vera Blalock is that she has a abundance of knowledge/experience pertaining to the classes that she is teaching here at KCC.
Her knowledge was very helpful to the material we are trying to learn really helpful with assignments that is hard to do on your own.
She has a unique way of teaching and I love her jokes. Too be honest, it's not fooling around kind of jokes. It's the "making sure the kids are paying attention" kind of jokes. So that is good.
She is always willing to help you. i feel she understands what its like to be a student and would move deadlines around to help students complete there work.
Professor Blalock has a great style of teaching that keeps class lighthearted and fun, but still is able to maintain a learning environment. I find that to be very valuable as a student to find in a professor. She was very good with explanations, and with her expectations as well.
She's the best teacher and relatable
She treated every student with respect, and she was very knowledgeable about the subject she answered our questions in a way we could easily comprehend. She's amazing (: Although she assigned many homework's and assignments it benefited me at the end of the course.
She was accommodating for any of my concerns.
The fact that she was always there to help when needed and always made learning fun and interesting.
She makes class fun and interesting.

25. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Her overall knowledge in business and business management was very helpful during her lectures. Her education and previous work experienced tied directly into what she was teaching us and it gave strength to what she was lecturing on. Her continued willingness to give and receive extra-credit work allowed me to test my skills of what I learned in her class as well as test myself on time management. She was very fair in regards to her homework and assignments.
26. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
My only problem with this course is the group projects and that's only because so many students in the class just gave up and stopped coming. Making the group members who were left in the class on their own. Although I was fortunate to get the chance to work on my group project. It helped me to learn a lot about the inner workings of a large business as well as how to do proper research to learn about the business. I have no suggestions on how to make this portion any better. I think it is probably good though, it is just like the real world of business. You have no choice but to count on and rely on your team members and inevitably a few of them will let you down or leave you with no notice.

I really enjoyed this class and Ms. Blalock's teaching. She is very passionate and knowledgeable about the course material. I not only learned a lot about business inside and out I learned a lot about myself. The group participation and the group projects brought me out of my shell.

5. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Learning what really goes on behind the scenes of a food service operation.
Mrs. Blalock was very helpful with all the work we had to do. And she was very informational for class. I enjoyed her class alot.
very inspirational instructor
Concepts I learned from this course are very informative to my life and career
the ending project really put alot of the concepts we've learned through out the semester to use. i understand the importance of working with other team members because that is the reality. When you work in a business as an executive, you brainstorm with other team members, but its quite difficult to get together with other team members in class. We all are full time students, and most of us are also full time workers. its hard to meet and fit everyones schedule. It sometimes leads some to do more work than others becuase they want the good grade. but it was a great project.
What I found that was the most valuable about this course was that, it taught us how to open up a business of our own and how to communicate with other from our class. What I also thought was valuable about this class, was that Mrs. Blalock would take her students on field trips to restaurants hotels, and even gardens to show us how difficult it is to run a business and all the hard work it takes for that business to become successful. What I thought was helpful about this class was that Mrs. Blalock would assist us in class whenever we needed help by showing videos about things that we would learn from our books just to make sure we understood what we were learning.
I learned about some very important food and business operations I got some experience as to what really goes on behind the scenes of a food and beverage operation.
ms. vera blalock taught me i could be a very good manager in the food and beverage field. ms blalock's method of teaching made me feel very comfortable and very easy for me to understand what needs to be done to become a great manager. there is nothing i can say to improve ms. blalock's class, but to say that she is nothing less than a great teacher.
the most valuable and helpful in this class was the tours that we had to do outside the school. and the group project that we needed to do.
