Once again, I pull on my tweed jacket with the patches at the elbows, grab my battered attache case, and slip on my black horn-rimmed glasses. Yes, Professor Clint McElroy once again heads to the Marshall campus to ruin the minds of young people.

I consider it a privilege to teach at Marshall. It's my alma mater, and to think that they trust me enough to teach sometimes marvel me. But I love it. Getting the chance to get to know 115 brand new students is one of the high points of my year.

I can't wait to meet the INTRO TO ACTING students and the THEATRE APPRECIATION students for FALL 2014 term. They always introduce me to new ideas, new challenges.

BUT...no one --in ten years of teaching-- has given me an apple. NOT ONE!!
