Always look into Brother's baby blues. Almost out 30 years and my most vivid accounts of St. Joe's come from this man. Today we're going to learn about the huns.

Brother Mike was so important to St. Joes that there should be a statue of him at the school. Class of 1979

Took his class more than 30 years ago. Most valuable teacher I ever had. Taught me how to think CRITICALLY, speak my mind and stick to my guns. While anyone can tire with age and decline in quality, I think most of the negatives here never gave him a chance. The true test of a teacher is how you think of him 30 years down the road and not when you graduate!

Terrible teacher, really funny person. Tests are pretty challenging for Acc students, not for regular students. Must have teacher in St. Joes. It's a unique experience.

I watched him grade every single one of some 20 six-page papers in 25 minutes. All he did was count footnotes. Still, it's an obscenely easy and often entertaining class...
