My Favorite Professor was Dr. David Waas

From Pat Gundersen Samata, Class of  1974:
I traveled with Dr. Waas 2x's (West Africa & Europe) and also took one of his classes.  His approach to teaching was exciting, fun and positive!  As our travel guide, he was always informative and never lost his patience or sense of humor!

My Favorite Professor was David Waas

From Roger K. Cox, Class of 1968:
After I graduated from Manchester, Dr. Waas stayed in contact with me.  While I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone, West Africa from 1968-1971, he contacted me and I helped arrange part of the Sierra Leone portion of a Manchester College trip.

My Favorite Professor was Jim Streator

From Michael Lantz, Class of  1980:
Dr. Streator inspired my interest in analytical chemistry.  His creation of a criminalistics course predated the popularity boom of interest in CSI-like television shows we enjoy today.

My Favorite Professor was John Planer

From Emily Schieber, Class of  2009:
Professor Planer, JHP, John; all names that I have used in reference to my favorite professor. John was, and still is, the one I go to when I need to talk ethics, personal life, Zorba the Greek, or death. I will always remember the FYC weekend!  :)

A great teacher who taught me to qustion everything.  Also, he has been a life-long friend.

My Favorite Professor was JoElyn McGowan (now Wakefield-Wright)

From Elaine Snyder, Class of 1973:

From Janet Sizemore Schilling, Class of 1976:
Dr. Klingler always helped me to realize my worth as a student, and as a writer...and as a person.

My Favorite Professor was Onita Johnson

From Sandy Monce (Bruch), Class of 1985:
Mrs. J was such an enthusiastic, knowledgeable teacher.  She made learning fun and life long.  I can only hope to inspire my students the way she inspired her college students.

My Favorite Professor was Richard Harshbarger

From Jim Peirce, Class of 1979:
He made economics so easy to understand and enjoyable that I decided to major in it as well as business administration.

My Favorite Professor was Art Gilbert

From David Flora 1999 B.S.; 2000 M.A.:
Some of my classmates and I would have fun pretending to be Professor Gilbert.  One of my classmates sold me out about my impersonations of him, so Prof. Gilbert had me get up in front of the class and teach as him.  Most terrifying moment of my life!

My Favorite Professor was Arthur Gilbert

From Kurt Adams, Class of 1976:
Art knew how to get the most out of me, whether it was challenging for "steaks" in class, or telling me I wouldn't pass the CPA exam if I played baseball my senior year.  He knew I would try my hardest to prove him wrong...and I did!

My Favorite Professor was Dwight Farringer

From Dwayne "Tom" Whitehead, Class of 1967
I was inspired by his kind patient manner with me as a struggling physics student during the 1964-65 school year. I learned how to be an effective teacher by attending his lectures that year.

My Favorite Professor was T. Quentin Evans

From Don Michaelsen, Class of 1967:
He was such an enthusiastic teacher.  He made doing research and accumulating information an experience of wonder!  He was just as curious to learn as his students.

Prof. Eberly helped to inpsire/facilitate my adjustment into the American Academic environment. High sense of purpose/devotion! THANKS ALOT! JAMES

My Favorite Professor was Dr. Karen Doudt

From Brent Kulp, Class of  1993:
Dr. Karen Doudt was my favorite Manchester professor because she was hard, but fair.  She always demanded her education students to be hard working, honest, and the best teachers they could be once they graduated from college.  She was first class.

My Favorite Professor was Gary Deavel

From David Butler, Class of 1968:
Always upbeat, always patient, and always encouraging.

From Tenley Orendorff, Class of 1975:
Through Sam I met my husband Brice Lewis at WBKE.

My Favorite Professor was Rowena Daggett

From Nancy Holdton, Class of 1975:
She had a unique perspective of the English Language.  I'll never forget her telling the class if you learned English in the US, then you spoke proper English.  It was her way of distinguishing the difference between proper English and proper grammar.

My Favorite Professor was Andrew Cordier

From Betty Refior, Class of  1943:
Reality came into stark relief for me during the five terms (freshman and sophomore) that I roomed with one of several German refugees that the European history professor helped to bring to study with us. She became his assistant.
