Your Professor’s Closing Remarks

Doesn’t this cute little mushroom deserve attention?

On the last day, professors like to make some sort of concluding remarks. Whether emotional, full of advice, or just plain weird, we’ve collected some of the best things your professors have said to share with you.  

  • “I’ve never seen this before I’m just making it up” – Math Methods for Economics, Sharon Harrison
  • “I’m a very social museum goer. It’s like drinking. I prefer not to do it alone.”
    – Anne Higonnet, Collecting
  • “It’s not just the curators of the Met either, okay? Curators everywhere have no sense of humor.” – Anne Higonnet, Collecting
  • “Sometimes I get a little annoyed,as a microecologist, that large mammals get all the focus… like, mushrooms are cute, too!”  – Krista McGuire, Tropical Ecology:
  • “When i think about the modern terminology for Mr. Ramsey, you know, i feel like it has to be mansplaining” – Thomas Austin Graham, LitHum
  • “Global warming will have severe effects. I’ll be fine because my apartment and my office are both on the 15th floor. But if you live on lower floors, or are planning to live longer, you’re out of luck.” -Robert Jervis, International Politics
  • “When you need to explain any American institution, Slavery is often a good bet.”  – Josh Whitford, Economy and Society.
