Student Leader: Jay Favale

Serving as a student leader was very memorable. It was probably one of the first teaching roles that I had and it helped me understand how other people think and learn how to best help people succeed in a course. I was motivated to participate because I wanted to help other students learn and I wanted to be a part of the community that Bill built through the student leader experience."

What did serving as a Student Leader mean to you? What motivated you to participate?
Serving as a student leader was very memorable. It was probably one of the first teaching roles that I had and it helped me understand how other people think and learn how to best help people succeed in a course. I was motivated to participate because I wanted to help other students learn and I wanted to be a part of the community that Bill built through the student leader experience.

A memory that remains with me from my Student Leader days is:
Everything about the experience was wonderful. It creates a great community in the engineering department. One of my favorite memories was when I was a TA and I went to Phil Schneider's lecture so that I could get a feel for how to do it. He pulled a prank by planting someone in the audience with a cell phone, took it away and broke it in front of the class. It was classic Phil.
