As editor of the Crusader Student Newspaper in 1963, Gaymon Bennett started interacting and commenting on NNU’s community. Returning in 1971 to teach English, Bennett continued to form and shape culture through his students. With his recent work compiling and editing “Spirit of Place: Recollections & Remembrances of NNC/NNU 1913-2013,” he knows what makes NNU tick.
Bennett says it is the level of commitment from our faculty and staff that make NNU stand out. NNU students learn from truly extraordinary individuals; many professors received offers to teach at larger universities, yet they chose to stay here.
