Here is a story from the NY Times on the emails that college students send to their teachers. The story says that “e-mail has made professors much more approachable. But many say it has made them too accessible, erasing boundaries that traditionally kept students at a healthy distance.” However, in KSU the story is quite different. I remember one of my biochemistry teachers who told us that if any of us has any question, “he can come to my office at anytime.” He did not provide us with any way to contact him; not even the phone number of his office. So, being the geek that I am, I asked him if he could provide us with at least his email address. “What? What did I just tell you? I said come to my office!” he said angrily. I never found him in his office.
