John Jacoby was one of my professors for “the living and learning” experiment that was launched my freshman year. Everyone in the humanities class lived on the same floor of the dormitory. I so enjoyed the class with Dr. Jacoby that I went on to take classes with him throughout my years at SMU. I’m sure he was not surprised to see me on his roster year after year. He was an amazing teacher and introduced me to literature I would have never chosen for myself. He opened my eyes to a whole new way of looking at the world.
