Linda Marangia in her officeThe Early Bird is seeking nominations for the popular Professor’s Room series.

If your faculty colleagues surround themselves with outrageous objects, alluring artwork or noteworthy knickknacks, please email with the subject line “Professor’s Room” to see them featured (or to nominate yourself).

The series gives Metropolitan State University of Denver faculty members opportunities to share their passions and hobbies — both personal and academic — while also providing some great conversation starters for upcoming Inauguration events.

Revisit some of our staff favorites:

  • Sociology Professor Linda Marangia, Ph.D., has in her office colorful artwork that doesn’t shy away from social commentary.
  • The office of Iowa Hawkeyes fan and Assistant Professor of Communications Samuel Jay, Ph.D., includes sports memorabilia and the poster that might be responsible for his marriage.
  • Professor of English and Department Chair Rebecca Gorman-O’Neill outfitted her space with reminders of favorite places and a “ridiculously adorable” animal.
  • The international vibe in the office of Political Science Chair Robert Hazan, Ph.D., is very intentional and helps him connect with MSU Denver’s diverse student body.
  • Adam Graves, Ph.D., associate professor of philosophy, displays souvenirs of his solo trip to Western New Guinea and a gift from a mysterious donor.
