Highly Engaged Faculty

“Dr. Bringle is a world-renowned hymn writer and has had her music published in many spiritual music contexts - but she also uses her musical talent to teach mnemonic devices in my Symbolic Logic class. She sets logical rules as lyrics to common tunes, and it helped me ace the class by humming through every test.”
