by Ruth E. Nalliah , Erika L. James and Annie K. Seboe

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Among Huntington College emeriti, what were their most unusual classroom experiences, and their most treasured moments? Their worst nightmares? When offered more lucrative jobs elsewhere, why did they choose to stay? And what did they find most worthwhile about an ordinary class, taught on an ordinary day? Also find the answers to the following questions. What pranks have been pulled by Huntington College faculty? Which time period produced the wildest students: the 1960s, the 1980s, or now? Which professor used a snowblower on a roof after the Blizzard of 1978? Which president walked 25-mile walkathons to raise money? Which emeritus serves on the editorial boards of twelve journals, in retirement? In Their Labor of Love, you'll read about what sparked an enduring passion for teaching within the long-term twentieth-century Huntington College faculty, and their experiences which established and sustained them in that role. You'll also be inspired by complementary views of the academic landscape through the eyes of long-serving campus leaders and student support personnel who have held the rank of Faculty. The accounting of these experiences is a testament to our mission in Christian higher education, and why we do what we do. This memoir does not read like a novel. It contains interesting, passionate, and humorous excerpts from emeriti essays and interviews, organized by topics of interest. The emeriti stories and wisdom will be loved by those who knew them, or knew of them.
