b"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. AnonymousWhile 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. - Doris Bitler Davis, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, George Mason UniversityState and National Support22"
