Professors from California Lutheran University, Clarke University and The College of New Rochelle voted college students’ favorite instructors in the nation
This spring, college students from around the country were given the rare opportunity to nominate and vote for their Most Valuable Professor. Today, with a combined total of over 2,500 votes, the three winners are announced. Congratulations to:
- Dr. Laurie Looker – California Lutheran University
- Prof. George Towific – Clarke University
- Dr. Veronie Lawrence-Wright – The College of New Rochelle
In addition to receiving the title of MVP, Questia.com, the premier online research and paper-writing tool for students, will create one $2,500 scholarship in the name of each winning MVP, all of whom will help determine the scholarships’ criteria and recipients. These three professors are playing important roles in students’ lives—not only guiding their education but also sculpting their journey to become life-long learners.
See what their students had to say about them!
“Dr. Looker deserves the title because she is, in short, amazing! She’s a school counselor at Westlake High School by day, professor at Cal Lutheran University during the evening, and superwoman by night.” “She is also extremely personable and really connects with students; advice or gossip related, she’s all ears. You can always count on her to complete whatever is asked of her on time, and I owe her my college success. Thank you for all you do!” — Jane of California Lutheran University
“This is the best professor that I have encountered at Clarke University. He is very knowledgeable and willing to help, not only during class time but also when he is just in his office, he will stop what he is doing and help anyway that he can.” — Brenda of Clarke University
“I wish to enter – Dr. Veronie Lawrence-Wright as the most Valuable Professor because although she is stern, “0” tolerance and with character she is in a very low profile, discreetly speaking, considerate, passionate and compassionate to all students. We all come from different cultures and Dr. Lawrence-Wright is approachable and diligently flows so well.” “Dr. Lawrence-Wright will work with each student individually, stay after class and address any concerns students may have very positively listen and encourage each and every one of us to hang in there.” — Frances of The College of New Rochelle
Questia’s Most Valuable Professors Competition allowed college students to thank the professors who made the greatest impacts on their educations as well as that of their classmates. Professors are a go-to source for more than just homework questions, they are advisors, mentors and MVPs!
