Dear Student: Some Things You Should Know

“Dear Student” is a compilation of letters written from a professor to anonymous students that covers a variety of different issues they face, yet written pointedly from a professor’s perspective. From the beginning of the semester to the end of the semester, from interacting with professors to dealing with procrastination, from following instructions to taking the feedback from professors in stride—it’s all addressed. A short section treats what it’s like to be a female minister who teaches in the field of Biblical Studies.Whether you are a professor, an administrator, a parent, a student, a former student, or a future student, this book was written with you in mind.
