Al Schoffstall

Al Schoffstall, Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, shared an encouraging message that he recently received from one of his students: “I just wanted to express my appreciation for all of the efforts you have put into the transition to remote learning. I think it’s easy for us students to forget that this situation sucks for the professors just as much as it does for us. You guys have made this transition much less grueling than it could have been. I know I speak for myself as well as others when I say your efforts at being great educators do not go unnoticed. You guys are awesome. Thanks for doing what you do.”
