Professors share their secrets of how they feel about the semester ending and what they are going to do in their free time.
“I am excited for the semester to come to an end because it will be nice to have some days off where I do not have to work on a computer,” said Albert Karevy, Visual & Performing Arts professor. “Although, I always feel like I could have gotten more work done with my students, but that’s just me. I am a full time photographer, so I plan to spend my time doing that and catching up on my long to do list.”
Students are not the only ones excited for this long break. Professors say that they put in just as much as hard work throughout the semester as well as the students and plan to take advantage of the down time they have for the next month.
“I love teaching, but it can definitely get a bit tiring,” said Heather Tullio, Mass Communications professor. “I recently adopted a one year old American eskimo mix name Lilah, so one of my big goals this break is to spend a lot of time house training her. Oh, and of course I am going to spend lots of time with my family and friends.”
Even though most professors are using this break to take some time off, some are utilizing this time to teach more.
“We are definitely just as happy to wrap up the semester as you are,” said Frederick Rogers, Natural Sciences professor. “In my down time I am teaching two courses off campus with two different nonacademic groups for intellectual discussions. So I am going to be here most of the time, but I will also be spending time with family and friends. And I can’t forget about winter hiking and cross country skiing.”
Students, before you think that you are the only ones thrilled for finals to be over, think again!
