Honors Prof. Ralkowski to Live on Vern

5 Apr

If you haven’t seen this great article over at the Hatchet, go read it now. Our own Prof. Mark Ralkowski will be living on Mt. Vernon campus next year as a “faculty in residence.”

From the article: 

“The faculty-in-residence program is an educational idea. It’s a chance to live the life of the mind,” Ralkowski, who will likely live in Somers Hall, said.

He will plan trips to museums, theater performances and an occasional D.C. United game as a way for students to get more out of their classroom experience “without the pressure of writing papers or studying for a test.” He said he thinks the experience will make him a better teacher.

This is a sweet deal for next year’s UHP freshmen who choose to live on the Vern — Prof. Ralkowski is great!  We envision there will be a fair amount of philosophy-frisbee on the quad.
