College professors are supposed to be old men with gray beards and patches on their coat elbows, filled with years of knowledge from their worldly adventures, right? That's why it's especially disarming when faced with a professor who looks like he just stepped out of a modeling photo shoot.
Some college professors can't resist the opportunity to engage an audience, even if they are paying good money to be learning. When these teachers lecture, it's sometimes debatable whether education or entertainment is their primary goal.
Tries Too Hard to Relate
There's often a generational disconnect between professors and students, and that's to be expected. There are always those college professors, however, that want to prove youth hasn't passed them by, and it's pretty obvious how much they want the students to agree with that notion.
Hard to Understand
College professors come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, and sometimes their accents and dialects aren't very well geared toward the natives in the region. Be prepared to spend the entire semester straining to understand every utterance, hoping that a misunderstood word doesn't mean the difference between passing and failing.
Some professors take their classes a little too seriously. When the mid-terms roll around and you find half your fellow classmates have failing grades, you'll know when you've happened across one of these teachers.
The curriculum in most college courses doesn't read like a best-selling fiction novel. Add a teacher with a monotone delivery who lacks the ability to keep his students engaged into the mix, and you have a perfect recipe for dozing off.
