A few of our favorite professors
Ever wonder how much difference a great teacher can make in a student’s life? Then check out these responses to a question we posted to our Facebook followers last fall: Who is or was your favorite professor?
Raghav Desai took two classes from music professor Loren Kajikawa (pictured above) — history of hip-hop and music of the Americas — “and both were exceptional.”
Kenny Short said he learned from astronomy professor Robert Zimmerman that “we are all made of star dust!”
“She keeps things interesting and checks numerous times to see if anyone has questions about the material,” Logan said. “I hope I can take a class with her again.”
“Her passion for opening students' eyes to alternative methods of healing psychiatric ailments was evident in every chapter we read and every assignment we completed,” Wallace said. “She was easily the most accessible professor I ever had, with office hours that were convenient and was always willing to meet her students outside of those hours.”
If not for Baumgold, Marks said he would not have gone to earn a master’s degree in public administration.
