“I was having trouble with Math 111 and spoke
with my professor. He was encouraging and
informed me about other resources for help. Even
just meeting with him twice during the semester
really helped a lot; it kept me motivated and made
me feel like I was not anonymous in the class and
that he really cared. In the end, I performed well. I
think it was because my professor was so kind and
let me know that he was there for me.”

“While I can lend a sympathetic and non-judgmental ear to
students in need, I think it's important to be aware of campus
resources in order to provide them with knowledgeable
referrals to professionals who can help them address their
psychological, emotional and academic concerns.”
