What MSC professor has influenced you and why?
“Professor Rogers, who teaches biology influenced me. I find it interesting to learn facts about biology, knowing the itsy-bitsy things about your body. It’s pretty cool. Professor Rogers teaches the class in a way where you want to go home, go over your notes and actually study. I would come back to class rejuvenated and excited to participate in the discussion and to learn more things. Professor Rogers is awesome!”
