Erin Golub

Third year

 "I want to have him for a class. People say he's a really good professor, and he teaches really well."

 


David Kehlenbeck

Second year

 "I haven't really followed it that closely, so I don't have thoughts on it one way or the other."

 


Josh Willey

First year

 "Friendship with a professor is okay, but there's a line. I really have no idea if he crossed it."

 


Alex Schad

Third year

 "I think he should get a hearing."

 


Lizzie Spavins

Second year, Echols scholar

 "I've never heard of anyone who had a bad experience with him."

 


Meereena Kim

Third year, onetime Echols Scholar, now in the Commerce School

 "I think he's a very wonderful professor. I really wanted to send him a card that said, 'I believe in you.' I hope everything works out for him career-wise and in what he thinks of himself. When you put someone down like this, the self-doubt can be devastating."
