Scripps College students voted Winston Ou, assistant professor in mathematics, their Student Choice Professor of the Year for 2010, making him the third recipient in the history of the award. Previous winners are Tony Crowley, in humanities, and Marina Perez de Mendiola, in Hispanic studies. Aside from accolades and a surprise party in The Motley in his honor, Ou received the commemorative stuffed squirrel that students present to the victor from year to year.
Students also presented personal notes to Ou, including the following from Annie Dreshfield ’13: “You were a joy to have as a math teacher! Even though I never particularly loved math, you showed me the beautiful side of a world I had never explored before.”
The Student Choice Award for Professor of the Year is sponsored by Scripps Associated Students, and all Scripps College students are eligible to vote.
