Mary Hudachek-Buswell, a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics in Clayton State University’s College if Information and Mathematical Sciences, was recently serenaded by a group of students as she walked to her car after a day of meetings and the Annual New Student Convocation.
“It was late and everyone was happy as they were moving to the parking lot,” she says. “The group of students were singing in the parking lot. I had had a couple of them in a math class and waved to them. I started joking about how sweet it was they were singing to me on my way to the car. That's all it took for them to stop and begin following me to my car. I put my things down and fumbled for my phone to record them. As I did so, there was another faculty member who came from another spot farther away to listen.”
Hudachek- Buswell was rewarded by the experience and appreciated ending her day with music.
“It meant a great deal to me,” she says. “The laughter, music, and the connection with the students was something we all needed. The students loved the attention as I did. It was a beautiful way to start a school year that holds so much promise and hope for the future.”
