"I love working with students, both inside and outside the classroom, so being on campus all the time is a perfect way to meet with them on their time and in their space. The informal social gatherings allow students to realize that professors are an excellent resource for all kinds of things, academic or otherwise. Whether it's bike repair or baking supplies or something more serious like academic troubles, paper editing, or graduate school applications, I'm always happy to help. Once a connection is made between a faculty member and a student, then a relationship can be built that can meet whatever the student's needs might be. That's what makes living in a residence hall so special."
