    David Dudley is an English professor and department chair at Georgia Southern University whose favorite aspect about teaching is being in the classroom, where he is able to reach his students through the relationships he builds with them.
    Dudley grew up in a Maryland suburb outside of Washington, D.C. For college, he attended Duke University, where he says he developed fond memories during the time he spent there.
    “I had the opportunity to study in Rome spring semester of junior year. During that time, I was also able to visit Sicily, Greece, Turkey and Switzerland,” he said. “I also remember going to Shoney’s in the middle of the night with friends for hot fudge ice cream cake while having to study late.”
    During his free time, Dudley keeps busy with many hobbies. He loves gardening and working in his yard, cooking and reading. He says that one day he would like to learn a new craft like woodworking or furniture refinishing.
    In the 25 years that Dudley has been at GSU, he says he definitely has noticed a difference in the university’s students.
    “I think students, like all of us, have changed due to the changes in technology. Twenty-five years ago, there were no cell phones or iPads,” he said. “The quality of students has improved. By and large, GSU students are a pretty decent group.”
    Dudley says that if he could give his younger self a piece of advice, it would be to slow down a bit and enjoy the ride.
    “It would be to enjoy, rest, relax and play,” Dudley said. “Also, to be more people oriented versus task oriented.”
