In case you missed it (ICYMI): students love their classes and their faculty. U ROCK!
For Valentine’s Day, NIU Today asked students to share stories about an NIU faculty member of class that they love. They shared touching stories about faculty who cared, such as Madelyn Anderson from the Department of Communication, who cheered on her students in the marching band during the Sycamore Pumpkin Parade, or Lisa Finkelstein from the Department of Psychology, who stays late to help students during finals. ]
Some students value being challenged by their faculty, such as Joe Bonomo from the Department of English who opens his students minds to critical thinking or inspired, as Ted Hatmaker from the School of Music does.
Check out all of the stories in the full article or watch the video below for a few of the highlights.

A big thank you to everyone from the Division of Marketing and Communication who reached out to students for their stories, and to all of the faculty, instructors, and teaching assistants who make a difference in their students lives. Those of us in the Faculty Development & Instructional Design Center feel the same as the students: U ROCK!
