Beth Yen and Kristen Jellison
Lehigh Athletics Department
Friends at Lehigh and from school's clubs
I would like to thank Dr.Marilisa Jimenez for being such an understanding professor and being there for us during these changes. She has gone out of her way to make sure we are not overwhelmed with work but also has made sure we are still engaged in the course.
All my professors
Professor Diggs and Amanda Cortezzo
Professor Vilanova. I have not personally had any issues, but he has been a constant source of positivity and always offering to help the students in his class in any way that he can. He realizes that this is a big change, and not everyone has the resources available to them that they would have had at Lehigh, and he wants us to know that he understands and will do anything that he can to help.
Sabrina Jedlicka, Brian Slocum
My professor Kristen Jellison has been very understanding of the situation we’re in, and has been lenient in terms of when things should be competed. She’s been very fair, very helpful and very kind.
Dr. Marilisa Jimenez has been very understanding if student's situations and has probably checked in to make sure everything is okay.
Dr. John Smith has also checked in and tried to accommodate to students.
Professor Virginia McSwain has been wonderful.
While her lectures have changed little, she's been very open with us about COVID and even gave a few lectures about epidemiology to give us an open forum to discuss the effects of this together.
Professor Manzo (ACCT) and Professor Farnin (BIS) for their understanding and help in arranging projects/tests to fit with my sporadic schedule
Professor Jennifer Gross has really given us a lot of flexibility which I really appreciate. She was one of the only teachers to allow us to have the exam open to take at any time during the day. I really appreciated that because I am in a different time zone and I am sure lots of other students are also in different time zones which makes it harder to do everything on east coast time. She also allowed us to write out our calculations so we could get partial credit and a reasonable grade.
Aliana Lungu has become like a grandmother to the orgo 2 lab students. Please thank her for being so kind
Most of my professors as well as my advisor
Professor Diggs, Director of the Marching 97
Michelle Conrad (academic coaching) and Lori McClaind from Student Affairs, Chris Bilder from UCPS, Professor Swann for academic coaching
Katherine Robinson was helpful and supportive to me durning this time and also other teachers/TAs for making some accommodations for me because of my work schedule like Shawn Hutchinson, Econ TA.
Advisor - Javier Buceta and coach Sean Leary along with all athletics leadership directors.
My english professor Laura Marciano has been the only professor of mine who continues to reassure us and reach out to let us know that we can talk to her about anything, whether it be her class, another class, or anything personal that we need to get off of our chest. She is also the only one who has acknowledged many times how she understands that this was a difficult transition for us.
Joshua Ehrig has done a wonderful job making the best of this situation and continuing to make class engaging
Professor Marsh and Katy Rene!!
Prof. John Smith in the history department did a really good job adjusting to online classes.
Professor Nick Strandwitz
Emma Dillon, Lehigh university graduate this fall who stayed to intern with office of communications. She has relayed information from President Simon regarding reassurance and graduation.
Professor Jim Dearden is really good at teaching online through zoom. I recommend sharing his lecture recordings with other faculty, so they can gain insight into what makes a successful online lecture.
Prof. Monica Miller has been the most helpful! Scott Burden is also great and checked in with me. Other people who have been very kind/understanding are Prof. Lindsey Reuben Muñoz, Greg Skutches (& the TRAC fellow leadership team) and Chelsea Gilbert. Prof. Adriana Perez Limón has done a great job at transitioning her class to an online setting, motivating us but also being very accommodating.
Dr. Allison Mickel has gone above and beyond to check on the wellbeing of her students throughout this time.
Robert Duquette, Olena Nikolai-Rzhevska, Chitra Nayar, James Brennan
Professor Stephanie Gresh, she has been extremely understanding of everyone's current situation, and has made adjustments as needed to accommodate the students.
My friends have been the most uplifting part of this whole experience. They're right there with me in what I am experiencing, they understand my frustrations, my loss of motivation, my depleting mental health, anything about school that is getting me down---which happens to be a lot, if not, most of it right now---I can reach out to them and they'll talk with me.
Most of my professors.
Carol Hill and Graduate Assistant Abby Voelkner have been amazing at providing work opportunities for students who received work study or were on staff as a building supervisor of the UC. They have also both done a great job of checking in with students and making sure everyone is staying healthy and safe.
Everyone in the Office of Student Engagement (especially Aarsenio, Alfredo, and Nick Christy) have also been doing a great job of keeping in contact with students and providing them with opportunities to stay involved and busy during this time.
Anyone involved with the efficient and effective communication of information to students about the ever-evolving situation.
My professors. Especially Phillip Coles and Dr. Mawritz who have been exceptional and understanding teachers.
Chelsea Gilbert & Scott Burden
Dr. Emily Pope - Obeda and Professor Mary Anne Madeira
Professor Justin Corvino in the Math Department and Professor Paul Quinn in the Physics Department have been both extremely helpful and paramount in making online learning effective.
One of the most helpful professors was Professor Hugo Ceron-Anaya, my SOC 001 professor. He has made the transition easier by lessening the workload for students, as it is difficult for us to focus on classwork when we are dealing with such a large global issue that is impacting us and our families. He has even gone so far as to cancel the final exam we previously had scheduled, relieving the stress of it for students.
Academic advisor and Taryn Gall
Dr Bilder and Eric Markovcy and Alex Stadler are the only ones.
My advisor Lisa and all my professors in this semester

Ken Peifer, an Assisstant Director in the Office of Residence Life. He has been my boss for the past two years (I am a gryphon) and he has been so amazing to us throughout the two years and especially now. He deserves so much.
Professor Angela Brown has been doing an excellent job as well as Breena Holland on being receptive to the issues of online learning and made themselves extremely open for feedback and help.
Micha Fell - Student Affairs Office
The whole CSO office
My rowing coach Coach Conley
Professor Margaret Kenna
My professors have been helpful.
Dr. Marangos (from the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department) has been SOOOOOO helpful and understanding. He is going out of his way to be accommodating to students, offering one-on-one office hours whenever students are available, responding quickly to emails, and adjusting assignments to be more accessible for students. With my laptop broken, Dr. Marangos gave me a super generous extension on my assignment, and has done a great job of helping those of us struggling with access to CAD, and the VPN by recording lectures. He is so kind, and Lehigh is lucky to have him!
Two of my professors have been particularly accommodating for our needs. I would like to thank Prof Ochs and Prof Matthews.
Amanda Brandone has helped me a TON with my class scheduling for next semester because I am working on switching colleges.
Nick Rousinello (my math 081 professor) and Seth Richard-Shubik (my ECO 045 professor) have been extremely helpful with office hours.
I am a tour guide, and I would like to thank Danielle Schlough in the office of admissions because she has reached out to the tour guides several times during this transition to check in on us, and I want her to know her efforts have not gone unnoticed.

Professor Don Davis and Professor Rob McCloskey have been very helpful in explaining and teaching Math 52 despite the difficulties that come with teaching online. Rob's email explanations of how the class is running are very much appreciated and Davis' lectures and lecture notes explain the material well. Professor Lawrence Tartaglia of BIOS 41 has been working very hard to give all his students the same quality lectures he provided while on campus and I know that he has put many extra hours of his own time into setting up the class and helping students out, for which I am very grateful. I am also very grateful that Eugene Albulescu set up a Zoom meeting so that everyone in the Lehigh Philharmonic could meet together and say goodbye to the seniors.
Emily Ford was very helpful in planning my classes to take next semester and provided me with a plan that is easy to follow. She also offered her additional academic help and guidance until we return to campus. She has been a fantastic resource and I feel less stressed knowing she is there to help.
Mythri Sekar, Emory Zimmers, Derya Perkucku, Bob Storer, Surresh Bolessani, Martin Takac
Michael Kashurba, Montell Allen

Don Davis in the math department and Lawrence Tartaglia have been very kind and understanding of the situation.
Cynthia Fianu-Velgus, a lab TA in the chemistry department, was very accommodative to my situation of being unable to go back to campus to get my things (in this case, my lab notebook).
Edward Whitley - English Professor
Mary Ellen Kitchen
Aliana Lungue (CHEM 113 professor) She has been the most accommodating and uplifting professor
I really appreciated my Professor Jenna Lay for reaching it to me and my classmates from ECK 081 last semester. Not only is she no longer our teacher, but she is also on sabbatical, and I found it very thoughtful for her to reach out and offer support.
I think that the most helpful was my Lussi mentor and Donnie Roberts.
Nick Christy, my boss at lamberton hall. He has connected me and continued to help me find all the resources I need to make this transition as smooth as possible. He also checks up on my mental health and is an open ear to listen whenever I need to talk.
Holly Zakos who happens to be my international family has been more than helpful to me and without her it would have not been the same.
The counseling center has been extremely helpful. I also want to thank my professors Amerdeep Singh and Hugo Ceron Anaya for being very helping in our transition to online learning.

Dr. Brooke DeSipio
Carol Hill. Best boss I could ever ask for.
Stravola Physics professor
Aarsenio Perry, Eric Kaiser
Joann Deppert from the Financial Aid Office has been one of the most helpful people during this transition. She offered me guidance and help when I had concerns about my finances. She also used our communication through emails as away to check on my well-being that did not center on my financial status.
Professor Karen Beck-Pooley has been incredibly understanding and accommodating for her students.
All of my Professors: Professor Zeitler, Professor Licini, Professor Morris, Professor Jellison, and Professor Brown. Also, my TAs Cat Tomkiel and Andrew Spatz.

Alison Valish, Beth Pelton, Melissa Phelps, Nik Nikolov, William Best, Kate Arrington
My professors have been helpful through this change, adjusting workload and timelines to help ease the transition/new normal. In particular, Spencer Quiel, Timothy Lomauro, and Mesut Pervizpour have done their best to make the transition smooth.
Mr. Marco Barbesta, who connected with me through the International Friends & Family at Lehigh since my first year here. He's been providing me with tremendous mental support and offered to assist me with getting food and any necessities I need.

Alishya Almeida, my english teacher, has been lenient and supportive during this time, which has been helpful.
Professor Aliana Lungu (CHM 113) has been incredibly helpful. She is realistic about her expectations, is always in touch with her students, and placed a meaningful significance on learning and comprehension over worrying over grades during this transition. Her course is an organic chemistry lab. When I first heard about the transition to remote learning, this class and how it could possibly be conducted remotely was my first concern. Professor Lungu rose to the occasion and I feel like I am getting as much out of this class as I potentially can considering I am taking it from my dining room rather than in a laboratory. Her positivity, adaptability, and compassion for educating the next generation of scientists deserves recognition.
Professor teboh-Ewungkem and
Chris bilder (sports psychology in health and wellness)
Miranda Teboh-Ewungkem - math professor

I am a Gryphon, so I have had communication with the office of Residence Life through all of this. I really appreciate their willingness to reach out to us Gryphons to make sure we are okay and transitioning well. Through the entire remote learning process I have felt that if I needed anything I could talk to Keith Blankenship or Monica Carson, or anyone else in the Office of Res life should I need anything.

Professors Nied and Ozturk adapted their exam to be more suitable for the online learning style. They and Professor Dailey were understanding of technical difficulties that happened on my end.

Professor Carr and Erle have been handling this very well.
Professor Yuval has been incredibly understanding of the current situation and flexible on deadlines.
Professor Greg Reihman is my philosophy professor (Phil 145, Philosophy of Technology; how apt) and he has not only kept his class exemplary, but also given us insight into his role as CITL director and how that plays into the discussions we have in class, as well as personal insight into how our other professors interpreted those guides.
Tess Pyne, Rita Jones, Leslie Pearson, and Angel Cheng (the CGE pro staff and graduate assistant) have also fostered as good of a community as they can for those of us who work and find community there.
Chelsea Gilbert has also been more than helpful in her support of Spectrum, offering to be a resource even with her coming departure. Even when we don't need anything specific, she offers her assistance and thoughts.

Professor Monica Najar
Robert Storer, Arrsenio Perry, Counseling Center
Nicholas Sawicki! He is always available to talk about the class I’m taking with him or any classes I may have questions about and he’s not even my advisor! He responded immediately to emails and although our class is not a zoom class, (because is is a huge lecture) Professor Sawaicki finds a way to make his podcast for art history 2 still so engaging. I’m so thankful to have him this semester. Thank you, professor Sawaicki!!
The pride center staff has been extremely caring and closely connected. love them
Academic advisors for CAS in general. I really needed direction. It's hard to find out who I want to be/ what I want to do alone at home. They helped tremendously.
Nick Christy is my boss at Lamberton and has been very helpful in making sure I still get paid, offering extra job assignments if we need more money. I'm also living close to campus and he has told me that if I ever need food or anything essential to let him know and he'll make sure I get it. He's been amazing!
My academic advisor, Emily Ford, has been extremely accessible and her responses are always very straightforward. I had a question and soon after I sent her an email she replied with the correct form I needed to fill out linked, as well as any other information I needed. She has made me feel so much less stressed regarding this whole situation.
I think most professors are doing their best in this situation. There is no one I can think of that stands out as going above and beyond; however, there is no professor that I feel is not trying his/her best.

They are also reasonable about the amount of work assigned to us each week.
I have two classes with professors Nobuko Yamasaki and Kiri Lee that are both extremely reliant on in-person interaction, and they have done an amazing job dealing with the transition in a professional way. With Professor Lee, the class is Advanced Japanese, and she has dealt with this so professionally that I feel like nothing is being lost in terms of the learning experience. Additionally, Professor Yamasaki has been gone above and beyond to ensure everyone is comfortable and able to do the best they can with this situation -- she even amended her syllabus to address the situation and assure everyone that they don't have to worry.
Professor Nayar has taken this transition in great stride. He has been super understanding and has adjusted his course so that it does not overwhelm his students, but we are still able to learn what we intended to. He really lessened my anxiety about how everything was going to work and cares a lot about his student's well-being.
I really think that my professors for WGSS 001, Scott Burden and Suzanne Edwards have been great during this whole process. With adjusting the syllabus, and being understanding to everyone’s personal issues going on I have felt comfortable talking to them about how I feel. They have truly been great.
Professor Emily Pope-Obieda did an exceptional job communicating with us and making sure we knew how the class was going to continue going forward.
Professor Susan Perry has been a huge help to me in planning my schedule even with all the changes to the course schedules.

Katie Guynn, Erin Matyus, Professor Madiera
Professor Richards-Shubik has been extremely encouraging as well as understanding of the difficulties many of us may be facing.
Professor John Fox has gone above and beyond to make his students feel heard and respected! He has done everything and more to make sure we are prepared for exams etc. and his friendly demeanor goes a long way! Many thanks and much love!
Dr. Holona Ochs in the Political Science Department has been amazing. She consistently checks in with her class, she repeatedly sends resources to us whether it be how to cope with mental health challenges or food insecurity, and she has restructured the class to ensure that all learning is asynchronous. She has been so helpful, kind, and understanding during this crisis and she deserves so much praise for her dedication to student wellbeing.

My advisor, Professor Littau: he sends emails with very helpful information and records fireside chats to help us.

David Anastasio (EES Professor) - Professor Anastasio has made the transition to online classes seamless. He has accommodated students by keeping flexible deadlines and being available for zoom office hours, which has taken a lot of weight off of my shoulders during a very stressful time. My research studies with him are also seemingly impossible because we cannot access our lab. However, his encouragement has helped me to see how the work I have completed up to this point is still worthy of presentation.
Douglas Mahony is my MGT143 professor and he continually provides clarity of the situation to our class. He helps solidify the difference between the truth and rumors during this time where rumors seem to be overtaking our campus.
All the women in the Center for Career and Professional development!
Jenna Papaz- only teacher that has been realistic and understanding of circumstances
My very accommodating and understanding professors
Coach Conley has been really helpful during this time. He has been scheduling meetings with all classes on the rowing team and with the other coaches. What we all miss the most is seeing everyone at practice everyday and Coach Conley has helped make this transition easier from being in person to being on zoom.
Everyone at the mail center
Cleaning staff lady for farrington A
Carol Strange and Alfredo Ramirez have been very helpful in many different ways. Even though my Iacocca Internship got canceled, Carol Strange stayed in touch, and within the span of a week she provided us with different options and was there for us if we needed assistance in anything this semester. Alfredo is always checking up on the SOURCE employees by holding weekly meetings where we talk about how we are feeling, and it’s those little questions that matter.
Eric Markovsky, Bernadette Devaney,
Professor Josh Ehrig really understood how much of a change this shift to work from home was going to be and helped to make sure that no student was left behind in the transition to online learning.

Prof Andy Ho, Prof. Xiofeng Sun, Prof Vincent Coll, Prof. Christine Ussler, and Mary Jo Brown

Professor Wright has done an outstanding job working with me and ensuring that the course-load was nothing that I could not handle between the continuing demand of my job as well as other courses. He was always cognizant of my schedule in addition to work he was assigning and he made a huge impact on my capability of working on his course as well as my others. He certainly deserves recognition where fit.
The faculty members in Registration office help me lots. Especially as a transfer student, they do a lot to ensure my schedule would not be impacted too much because of transferring.

My history professor, Emily Pope-Obeda has been the most flexible and understanding of my professors, she’s always checking in with her students, and has been willing to change a lot of her course to make it easier on us during remote learning - including changing a lot of the format of the class, pushing back some due dates for us, and generally being great and understanding.
