What is the most influential thing a professor has ever taught you on campus and why?

As a freshman it was really nice when we had all those hand outs and papers that told you to go to the TLC or go to the library because everyone goes to the library which I didn’t really know last year. Just all the extra study help stuff they would give you, like how to actively read. That was nice.”

Do you think that professors always get as much credit as they deserve for being in the profession that they are?

“No, I don’t think they do. I think they deserve a lot more than what they do because they have to put up with a lot I feel like and they know a lot. They have a lot of education, so I feel like they deserve more credit than what they do, especially when students can be kind of rude to them.”

What has been your favorite college class and why?

“I like English, but that’s just because I love English.”

Dikshya Rajendran is a freshman with a business administration major

What is the most influential thing a professor has ever taught you on campus and why?

“I think the best thing my professor has ever taught me is to skim through the text books and understand them while you skim it instead of reading part of every chapter. Just to skim through everything and try to know what they’re trying to give you, so I think that is really influential to me. As a freshman reading 80 pages of a text book like in the first week is hard for anyone. When it comes to things like history, I took history 101, and I had to read 180 pages for two week and that was really hard for me. I really couldn’t read each and every word, so being told to skim through everything and take notes was really helpful.”

Do you think that professors always get as much credit as they deserve for being in the profession that they are?

“I don’t know about that, but honestly I think that they give their best for the students. Like we as students don’t even think about them much after we pass out of college or something, and once we graduate we’re just doing our own career and stuff. We don’t realize who was behind that, so I think that’s a sad part. One should remember their professors. You’re being a successful person now obviously because of your parents and your professors, so you’ve gotta look back sometimes, you know?”

What has been your favorite college class and why?

“As for now, I think human development. It’s like 250 students in a lecture class. It’s the best class because we have less homework compared to the other classes and not a lot of stuff to do, so I think that class is really good.”
