From his teaching methods to his appearance, Ryan Vaughan is someone you remember. He’s that funny professor who’s not afraid to be bold, but he’s also much more than that. Vaughan held his annual final lecture Wednesday night in the Anderson Center for the performing arts at 7pm in front of of hundreds of students, faculty and community members.
“I can’t make fun of you unless I know a lot about you. Learning is like exercise it’s painful. As you can see I do not like exercise. But I like laughing.”
