Staff Perspective

I love working in the Department of Philosophy. The philosophy faculty are all very friendly, considerate, and professional. They work hard with their students and care about them. Many of our majors stay in touch with their professors for years, frequently stopping by the department when they are in town to visit and let us know how they are doing.
