Who was your favorite faculty member?

All the History Profs were excellent. I loved classes with Dr. Nate Smith, Dr. Halstead, Dr. Goodfellow and Dr. Fallaw. What a great bunch!!

I owe Dr. Nancy Tatum for strongly recommending I go to the Writing Lab. Mrs. Goodfellow was a great writing tutor and taught me to be a decent writer.

Sean O’Connor and Jeff Chaffin were memorable influences.

What is your favorite Washington College memory?
