  • Dr Silva has been the best teacher/professor/guide/communicator/academician/educator/mentor I have ever-ever had. My second concentration is Portuguese because he motivates students to fall in love with the language, so you start taking the class as a ‘requirement’ of a language credit and then fall in love with Portuguese -language, culture, music, film, literature, arts, history, politics , and the unique and gorgeous Brazil- and then wind up enrolling in a Port. course every semester. You better not be absent to any class, or you will miss a whole adventure of really cool knowledge. Dr Silva, obrigado pela qualidade do ensino que você tem para nós.

In addition when I had her class the next semester, it was one of the few up to that point that really made me step outside of something I was used to (my decision making processes) and gave me more tools in order to fit any situation. I can honestly say without her I wouldn't be where I am now, so thanks Dr. Smith!

With a variety of teaching styles, you helped bring the courses in which you have team-taught incredible energy, enthusiasm, personality, understanding, and excellence. In ways you probably have not realized, you each have taught your students AND your faculty colleagues invaluable lessons. Thanks so much.

  • Dr. Foresta is flat-out one of the most influential educators I have ever had the privilege of getting to know. His teaching style is energetic, passionate, informational, and incredibly inspiring. He's such a genuine person inside and out, and you can tell he really believes in what he is talking about. He never makes a student feel stupid for asking a question and always helps in any way he can. He really is a great teacher and great man. I feel honored to sit in his classroom.

She planted the idea in my mind that I could be a leader on campus, and there's no way I would be where I am now without her encouragement my freshman year. You will be greatly missed, Dr. Rudolph

I'm in his sculpture class and he always makes sure that every single student in his class has all the materials they need to work on their project. He's more interested in teaching you and helping you learn more about sculpture than any kind of quiz or test.

Lane cares about students and wants them to be their best, even when that means a "kick in the pants!" I am proud to be a VFL because of Lane Morris.
