Quotes from students/alumni

  • “This was a superb course. Dr. Boxer is knowledgeable, well organized, and congenial. He models the clarity, completeness, and rigor he expects and encourages in his students. I look forward to more courses with him to ensure my CIS degree actually well prepares me for a competitive market in IT.”
  • “A superb course taught by an inspiring professor."
  • “I just wanted to take a moment to articulate the importance of the ridiculously hard class that I took with Dr. Boxer on Algorithm Runtimes (I really don’t remember the name or specifics of the course information)… [Details of how this alumnus uses material from the course professionally are deleted.] I just wanted to take a moment to thank you guys for the hard, but necessary education. A lot of people don’t like it but it’s necessary. I remember the three of us worked our butts off, managing to pull good grades and understand the material. Apparently it paid off.”
  • “I am so glad I had you as a professor because it really helped me get to where I am today.”
  • "Thanks for being so supportive of me.  You made a difference in my life by seeing something in me that I couldn’t see in myself.  I am most grateful to you."
