Gregg Marshall

Being a college professor has been the most enriching and surprising experience of my life. On this journey, I have learned to sample with great joy and anticipation the opportunities, people, circumstances, and perseverance needed for the trek. I love reminding my students that life truly is a JOURNEY and the opening (and closing) doors ahead will make it awesome adventure. My 29 years in academe have allowed me to be a part of the lives of so many students in class and in student organizations. What a privilege and honor to serve young people in this way!
