Professors. We love them. We hate them. If you go to a small college, like myself, then you will definitely get to know all of your professors thanks to your super small classes. You may even have one professor more than once! You have probably had one, maybe two of these types of professors but they all certainly exist.
1. The General
This is the professor that teaches that Biology class that you have to take and treats all of his students like they are Bio majors. Attendance is always big with them. Being an athlete and having a game out of state is not an excuse either.
2. The Nut
This is that professor that wears sandals in December and smells kinda like jerky but you love them anyways because they make punny jokes on a regular basis and have the most memorable stories.
3. The Artist
This is that professor that wears really loose clothing and is always making analogies for things that don’t need them. This professor also takes the arts super seriously and applies them to all topics. They have probably said something like "If you think about it, business is a lot like theater..."
4. The Coach
This is that professor that is probably teaching a physical education class or health topics. Sometimes your class feels like a locker room with all of the sports references that you don't get. This professor also picks on the athletes and not you...unless you’re an athlete. If you are, I’m sorry.
5. The Parent
This is the professor that is constantly complaining about their kids and passive aggressively mentions them in class. They are often late to class and send emails explaining how their kid ruined something. If you're lucky their kids are toddlers, and they will make a surprise appearance in class. It will be very hard to focus.
6. The Hippie
This is the professor that never really seems to be 100 percent there in class. What he/she does before and after class…. Well, that is for you to decide.
7. The Retiree
This is the professor that is retiring after this semester and doesn’t care about anything. They will often times never return work because, let's face it, they didn’t look at it. They also won't hesitate to say what they are thinking, even about you.
8. The Student Teacher
Wait, you’re not a student? You're the Professor? Oh…. Awkward.
If you're really lucky he/she is hot. Possibly in your league. But many times, they are either married, look like your awkward neighbor that moved back home last summer and really creeps you out, or not your professor.
