Love for Eastern Professors: Students reflect on the instructors that helped them during their college careers.

An Appreciation for Professor Gidjunis

      I love Professor Rebecca Gidjunis because she was really the first professor here at Eastern that made me feel excited to be here! Before even meeting her, I was immediately drawn to her course description for Intro to Creative Writing. I am an English Writing major, so of course I had to be in this class and it was definitely God-ordained for me to be a student in her classroom. She sparked so many images in me through the way she taught the course. It is because of her that now I am obsessed with matching words to images that I may see in my mind or just out in nature.

      She has helped me to grow so much as a writer. Never in a million years did I think I would be writing a 3,000-5,000 word story my freshman year in college, yet there I was doing just that in her Short Fiction class! She has gently yet firmly pushed me to become a more well-rounded writer and I thank God that I have had the pleasure of meeting her along my journey through life as a creative writer for the homie Jesus. I love that she incorporated Scripture into her lessons because it helped me to see just how colorful God’s Word is. She is absolutely amazing and I hope and I pray I have the pleasure of taking another course with her again. I LOVE YA PROFESSOR GIDJUNIS!
