A well liked and highly respected professor in the program retired at the end of the semester, our class was his last. While many of us were sad to learn of his departure it has gives him the chance to engage with his students in ways he previously could not because of boundaries.
At the end of the semester he reached out to myself and two of the women who I worked on a group project with. He has asked if we would be interested in meeting with him, in a more social context, to have philosophical conversations about life and its meaning. We all agreed and are scheduled to meet this week.
I look forward to this opportunity, I feel like I have much more to learn from this man and am grateful he sees something in me as well.
