POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – One of Marist College’s own faculty members has pulled off a stunning local political upset.
On Tuesday, Sept. 12, Dr. Lynn Eckert defeated Peter Loughran in the Democratic primary election to represent the Ulser County Legislature’s 5th District. Eckert, who is an associate professor of political science at Marist, defeated the 23-year incumbent by accumulating nearly 75 percent of the vote.
Fighting through a semester with a hard professor is a right of passage in college.
Often before meeting a difficult professor, anxious students depend on RatemyProfessor’s 1 to 5 rating scale and other student’s comments to set the precedent for the class.
But you don’t need RatemyProfessor to find a brutally honest opinion about Zu-Hsu Lee, or who business majors better know as Professor Jason Lee. In fact, many of his students were in utter disbelief, and even took issue with the validity of his ratings, “There is no way this many students have had a positive experience in his class. He must have written these reviews himself.” said senior business major Harrison Felman.
