Dr. Tom Duck
"Teaching is a huge learning experience" Ñ Tom Duck, winner of the Dr. Forbes Langstroth Memorial Award.

Dalhousie arts graduate Samantha Diamond said it best.

During her valedictory address at Convocation last week, Ms. Diamond described how Halifax's friendly, atmosphere made living and learning at Dalhousie such a pleasure. From Thornhill, Ont., the English major was amazed that Halifax drivers stop for pedestrians, even if they're not waiting at a crosswalk. She drew a comparison to the classroom.

"Our professors, like drivers on the road, stop for us too," she said.
