Call for Favorite Faculty Nominations

The Department of Housing and Residence Life is seeking Fall “Favorite Faculty” nominations from students who live on campus. A reception honoring faculty who are nominated and the students who submitted nominations will be held early April. Teaching/Research and Administrative/Professional Faculty are eligible to be nominated.

The “Favorite Faculty” program is an effort to encourage students to recognize the positive impact that faculty have had on them and their college experiences. The reception for the nominators and nominees provides a forum for students and faculty to spend time together outside of the classroom and celebrate their positive interactions.

All on campus residents are eligible to nominate up to two faculty members per semester for their outstanding contributions, dedication to students, or personal influence. Nominated faculty will receive a letter in the spring with their nomination(s). Students can submit their nominations online by going to:

Nominations will be accepted until December 9, 2015.  For questions regarding this event please contact James Penven at (540) 231-6205,

Personal wireless routers will no longer be needed, but consumer-grade Ethernet switches can be used if desired. More information can be found on the Residential Network Upgrade page along with status updates.
