About the blog:

Professors are much more than an ass who gave you a B or someone who puts you to sleep at 9 a.m. every Tuesdays and Thursdays. They are living legends. The type of people who show up in textbooks because they know what the heck they are talking about. Recognize the greatness that surrounds us – recognize the life accomplishments of these legends. Be inspired. Put your phones away, get off Facebook, and wake the eff up. Next time you walk into a lecture hall, know the story behind the person standing in front of you.

About me: 

I am a rising Senior at Johns Hopkins University. An average student living a typical college life. Let me rephrase that. I should be honest. A below average student living a typical Hopkins life.

About why I got started: 

While signing up for classes, I realized that I was signing up for classes that I wasn’t even interested in. Usually because I heard it was an easy class. Some of these easy A classes turned out to be actually interesting. Others turned out to be a waste of tuition. Because my focus was on the credit, quality, and difficulty of the course, I would walk into class first day of class, knowing almost nothing about the professor. I would walk out the last class of the semester knowing almost nothing about the professor.

Then one day I checked the Economics department faculty on the school website. Johns Hopkins, known for cultivating future doctors, has the reputation of a weak economics department. However, these professors were absolutely brilliant. Not only were they outstanding at a young age (degrees in universities such as Harvard, Yale, UC Berkeley, Princeton, University of Chicago), their life time accomplishments were noteworthy. Even one of the weakest majors at the school had some of brightest mind in the field. Knowing what the professors research, what they accomplished, what they were recognized for sparked a sudden interest.

I looked around and saw the over-achieving geniuses around me. Students always talk about the success of their peers. “Oh damn, he got into Hopkins Med.”  “She’s so effin smart. She got like a 3.9 as a BME (Biomedical Engineer).” Then I thought, these professors are them, just some years later (many, many years for some others). It is time for students to also talk about the success of the professors. So search your professor or start here.
