Favorite Class as an Undergraduate

"My favorite class as an undergraduate was any course taught by Dr. Jacob Gayle. Gayle taught courses at Kent in the health arena with such a passion and commitment that students wanted to be in class and learning. He encouraged students and expected them to be engaged in the learning process. He pushed, prodded and cajoled students in a lecture class of more than 200, but you never felt overlooked or lost in such a large setting. His delivery of information created a feeling of a much smaller class setting and there was never a day that students did not approach Gayle after class to continue a discussion or ask questions. At such a large institution, he allowed students to feel significant and important.  He inspired me as an undergraduate student to not be intimidated by a professor and to engage in classes."
