We Want To Hear About Your Most Awkward Professor Encounters

During your four (or maybe more) years spent on campus, you’re bound to have a couple awkward professor encounters. They can happen inside or outside the classroom, and can come at any moment.

You know the type of encouragers we’re talking about. You pass by your English lit professor during a Saturday morning walk of shame. You frantically emailed your chem professor saying you couldn’t take today’s exam because you were stuck out of town, only to see them in Target.

Send your uncomfortable tale to [email protected] and you could see your story featured on the site next week.
