#48: Exceptionally Thoughtful Professors

cookies in class - awesome.

We have a tremendous number of amazingly talented professors at Stony Brook. They are researchers, writers, and all around brilliant. The fact that we get to learn from these great minds is awesome in and of itself. What’s also awesome is when these professors make the classroom experience personal. Eva M., an English major, told us, “I’ve had a professor for a three hour night class who brought in different kind of cookies each week to help get us through the long class. A writing professor I had used to put snack out for us during our conferences. Another professor baked the class a cherry pie! One thing a professor did that was truly above and beyond was hosting a dinner at his house! It was a small honors seminar and for the last class we gathered at his home and he and his wife prepared us a delicious meal.” Having professors who work hard not only to teach but also to make students feel at home and comfortable in the classroom is remarkable experience. Thank you to all those professors out there who go above and beyond each day for their students!!
