Steve Surace
Professor,  Mathematics & Computer Science

Student Comments:

“He is the first professor that I took a class with at Drew in my freshman year. Although I liked math before coming to college attending various challenging math courses with prof. Surace’s high energy made them the best classes that I took in college. I am grateful to meet with someone who is so smart in his profession and still down to earth, thoughtful, understanding, witty and easy to talk with over anything. I am very grateful for everything you have contributed to me!”


Christopher Fazen
Assistant Professor, Chemistry

Student Comments:

“The professor made my love for chemistry grow”

“I am an INTO student so it is not easy for me to take science classes especially the chemistry since there are many weird names for chemicals. However, My professor can explain everything very well and I can understand everything he teaches and he says.”


Katherine Brown
Director, Theological School Language and Learning Center

Student Comments:

“Professor Katherine Brown helped us not only to improve our English skills but also to take root in Drew community. When we were wondering, not knowing what to do in classes, she was always there to help us.
All staffs and professors really helped me a lot in many ways, I especially want to thank her for everything she has done for international students!”


Sandra Keyser

“The professor always welcomes me when I visit her and tries to help me with any problem that I encounter. Although she taught one of my toughest classes, I really appreciate her for the additional help and care she offers to any of her students.”


Akwasi Nti-Addae
Assistant Professor, Economics

Student Comments:

“He invited me to his office a few weeks into the first semester just so that we could talk about university life and how I’m coping as an international student. I’ve been back to his office multiple times, even though he’s not currently teaching me, as I enjoy getting advice from him. He’s always willing to provide a different perspective and encourages me to take courses that may be out of my comfort zone but will help me in the future.”


Jennifer Kohn
Associate Professor, Economics

Student Comments:

“I like how strong and independent person Professor Kohn is. She motivates me not to give up on anything. If there is something that is hard for me, she helps me to achieve it and realize that gaining my goal by overcoming difficulties makes me smarter and stronger. Professor Kohn is my inspiration to work hard and try to be like her. I will always remember her saying, The sun will shine tomorrow meaning if it is a dark and difficult day today, it does not mean the darkness will not go away.”

Raymond Stein
Professor, Art

Student Comments:

“As a first year student I was very nervous my first semester but he made me feel as I have a place here. He would always check in on me even though he wasn’t my adviser. He would take an interest in my culture and talk to me about how I was transitioning here in terms of food and following my holidays, and missing family. He even played a song from my culture and language during class! I felt very comfortable in his class and appreciate the effort to make me feel at home! Additionally he’s a great teacher and always gave me honest feedback about my work in a positive way.”
