Retired in Georgia - after military service, business management and helping to prepare students to succeed at private boarding schools.
How has professor Aveni influenced who you are today?
Taught me to keep learning new things - don't stop.
Dear Professor Aveni, as the first student to enter your classroom on your first day teaching at Colgate in 1963, let me also congratulate you on your retirement. Your Astroomy101, “Descriptive Astronomy” was so interesting that it kept me wanting to learn more new things – so I took “Frontiers of Astronomy” the next semester.
Based on your tremendous research, last year, my wife and I were privately escorted through many of the Mayan ruins in San Ignacio and Caracol by the decedents of two Mayan Chiefs. They mentioned astronomy and both said that there is so much more to find. Thank you so much!
