Students pay tribute to instructors in strange ways

March 10, 2016

Some students may take their reverence for their instructors a little too far, and occasionally in quite comical ways, writes Courtney Kueppers of the Chronicle of Higher Education. The article goes on to describe several cases in which students chose particularly strange ways to show admiration to their instructors. One example includes an instructor whose students named their cars after him, while another describes a professor who had four of her students get tattoos of a phrase that she had repeated on a study-abroad trip, a gesture that she felt celebrated the trip more than herself.
