Doug Tobler, Beta Iota Chapter, Phi Alpha Theta, The Thetean


Perhaps the most salient memory I have from my History 200 class, other than Professor Doug Tobler's engaging laugh, is his maxim that writing makes us responsible for our words. This idea has stayed with me through many long nights in front of a computer monitor, and although I still cannot say that I want to be responsible for every word I have written, we learn by doing and the proverb endures.
