VOLUME OF CAMPUS MEMORIES
Influence of a Professor
I recall one winter when I had moved off campus and my car broke down. It was not a long walk, but it was a colder winter than I was used to as I moved to Enid from the southeastern part of the state which generally did not get too terribly cold.
After Professor Jorden saw me walking in to one of his early morning classes, he offered to pick me up every morning and take me to school until I could get my car fixed.
This was just one of the many kind things that he did which were outside of his job description.
We stayed in touch up until shortly before his death. He was a major influence on my career path.

Dr. Bill Snodgrass’s History Courses
“I was significantly influenced and inspired by Dr. Bill Snodgrass’s history courses—his enthusiasm and love of the subjects he taught as well as his “dramatic” teaching style.
It was specifically his influence that led me to my profession as a history museum curator/director.”
- Marsha Trowbridge Ardila ‘78
“All faculty and staff members shared a deep commitment to Phillips University and the students. I remember sitting in the campus café, students and faculty together, visiting over lunch or a cup of coffee. Not only was the faculty dedicated to the quality of our education, they were interested in us as individuals and the development of our character. That is what I believe made my Phillips education and experience superior to what I would have had at another university. That’s the Phillips legacy.”

At Clay Hall
"At Clay Hall, when the weather got really hot, some of us in the wing that had an opening to the roof took our mattresses up there and slept under the stars.”
