        Had Haug, Ford and Lang. Remember almost everything from their classes 5 years later. Haug and Ford were hard as balls though, Lang was hilarious. Those would have been my 3, but I would choose Lang because his class didn't take 4 years off of my life like Tax with Ford and Stats with Haug did.

                1) Ed McBride of the Civil Dept. was the most effective teacher in the School of Engineering by a wide margin.

                2) Stanley Lombardo's Greek and Roman Mythology was amazing. Some lectures he would read passages from the assigned reading (he'd even do the voices). It was like getting read bedtime stories about great warriors, monsters and adventure.

                2a) Pelle' - He was an Ethiopian Philosophy Grad Student. The guy was totally off the wall, but was one of the most kind and energetic people I've met. It was so much fun just to hear the guy talk and outwit the snarky kids in debate.

                  Ford was probably the most knowledgeable and biggest hardass I ever had. I respect the guy, but that's about it.

                  Dennis Karney was one of the best professors I had at KU.

                              The four volume series he edited are the foundation of Science Fiction. He's a fair, if dry, writer himself.
