This issue, we asked, “In two sentences, who was your favorite professor and why?
Kevin Cox ’15: “Dr. Nick Scoville - He was the first math teacher I had that truly made math about beautiful problem solving. He was approachable, genuine and humble at all times.”
Sydney Rotman ’15: “Dr. Alice Leppert - My all-time favorite professor. I asked her to be my honors advisor because I truly enjoyed working with her. She is a very important person from my academic career.”
Nina Petry ’16: “Dr. Rebecca Jaroff - She’s an incredible teacher who manages to weave important, topical issues seamlessly into class discussions. I always felt that I got more from her classes than just the subject-at-hand, and she worked with each of her students at his or her own pace.”
Mary Schardt ’15: “Professor Heather O’Neill - She is super knowledgeable, but also super approachable. I feel like I learned more from her class than I did in any other at UC.”
Brett Hillsberg ’13: “Dr. Becky Evans. She is an inspiration to humanity. Understanding, brilliant, kind and an excellent teacher.”
