Sticky notes with heartfelt messages to faculty on doors

First-year graduate physician assistant students extended heartfelt wishes, conveying gratitude to their professors who guided them through the challenges and triumphs of this past semester.

Professor Cindy Rossi, clinical professor of physician assistant studies and director of clinical education, said she was extremely surprised when she read some of the sticky notes on her door.

“Some of the students overheard my comments as I was reading them — and heard me saying things like, 'Awww,' and 'That’s so sweet!' said Rossi. “It was such a wonderful surprise! I told the class, It was so thoughtful! You made my day!'"

The notes reflect the gratitude of the students, creating a positive and connected atmosphere within the School of Health Sciences. 

Here are a few of the several dozen notes that were left for the faculty:

  • "Professor Theriault, thank you for your calming presence and for being our biggest supporter every day. You have done so much for us and this program — we appreciate it more than you know!"

  • "Professor Rossi, we always enjoy your lectures and how you try to keep them fun and light. Thank you for prioritizing our success and growth in this program."

  • "Professor Seeger, thank you for the years of support and encouragement through the good and the stressful times."

  • "Professor Freund, thank you for always encouraging us & making us laugh! So grateful to have you as a professor!"

  • "Professor Charboneau, I cannot thank you enough for all the support, advice, and knowledge you've given us 3 for pushing us to be the best we can"
