    Greatest professor you had while in school

    my best professor was one that I had during freshman year that had us go to their house for a learning community project and allowed us to empty his liquor cabinet. probably the single greatest thing i ever did for a class. ive heard that they also brought 40s to class and drank them during class. for obvious reasons i probably shouldnt release their name

    John Jack Hagge! - Classical Western Literature and History of the English Language. He had a beard that would make the most masculine of men swoon.

    I never took any of his classes, but Dr. Youngs was my favorite professor. I had to opportunity to get to know him during my years there.

    Re: Greatest professor you had while in school

    Mathematics Prof. Alexander Abian. He theorized by removing part of the Earth's moon mass, it would alter the Earth's orbit, causing a Summer-like season all over the planet year round. It made the National Enquirer, I believe he spent a number of years teaching Math 105 to football players as a result of the poor publicity the theory brought to the University.


    There can be only one.

    Professor Boone in the Design College - he was brilliant and could have been a top-notch motivational speaker. SIBKIS is still a motto I live by.


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    I thought of him right away too. I'd add Barbara Mack and Allen Michie as honorable mentions.

    Was Michie the guy that taught Brit Lit up until about... 2007ish and then quit? His wife taught at Iowa, and they lived in the middle between the two Universities?
