An email I received from a former student. The eyes are everywhere, people:
Long time no talk. I hope all is going well this semester at UMW. I miss the environment there greatly. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been following along with the Exploring Whitman blog as much as possible, and I have learned from, enjoyed and been in awe of some of your students’ insight. It must be a fun class!
Anyways, I thought you would like to hear that even though I have a diploma I am still as inspired and eager to learn as ever. I wish I could be there to go along for the ride. Alas, I will just have to look on from afar. So make sure the students know just how valuable and important their work is– on such a variety of levels– because I’ll be reading. Thanks again for what you do, and good luck with the rest of the semester.
