I know this is somewhat of an irrelevant topic but this apparently
bothers many of you "professors" out there. I am an undergrad and call
my professors what they wish to be called. On the first day the teacher
usually tells us what he/she prefers to be called, whether it be Dr.,
professor,or by their first names. Most of my professors prefer to be
called by their first names because they think the term professor is just
an arbritary title. The lack of formality really helps interaction
between the students and teacher.
