First Day of Class Feel-Good Moment

A nice moment in the first day of class in my introductory business class (BUS-110), mostly first year students:

We were doing introductions and I had asked the students to share their answers to several “self intro” questions. When Jeff Baur spoke, he answered the question “something that makes you unique?” with, “I recently completed four years service in the Army including several tours in Afghanistan.”

USArmyBefore I could say “thank you for your service,” the class erupted into spontaneous enthusiastic applause and a torrent of thank yous.

This was a high spot, but in general I was very impressed by the maturity and enthusiasm of this group of students.
