Professor Jamie Fader

School of Criminal Justice

Professor Fader's advice:

Get to know your professors. We may seem intimidating at first, but don’t forget most of us went into teaching because we enjoy interacting with students. Stay after class to ask a question, come to office hours, demonstrate intellectual curiosity, or ask about opportunities to do research with faculty who work in your areas of interest. These small efforts can have a huge payoff in the end. When you develop working relationships with professors, you can transform a big university experience into a small university experience.
