Babson Professors Tina and Fred Opie along with Bizzy Beaver
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in your class. I plan on taking more of your courses.
Your class made me question previously held beliefs and allowed me to learn new perspectives. You discuss issues that often go ignored.
When I took your class I didn’t recognize my aversion to accepting what I was learning was a result of implicit bias I didn’t know I had until later. Thank you, your class was important to my understanding about historic systemic inequalities (even if retroactively!).
The most important thing I learned in your course was Your Super 7 Success Principles. I loved having a professor that offered such relevant advice to all of us and who understood what it was like to be a student athlete. It made the class that much more valuable for me.
I have learned a tremendous amount by taking your classes. I still think you should teach college writing in your spare time.
Professor Opie motivates you to do your best work, guides you out of your comfort zone, and never stops raising the bar so that you grow and improve both as a scholar and as a human being.
“Fred Opie is a brilliant scholar and one of the most thoughtful, compassionate human beings I know.”
I lamented not having had Fred Opie’s book Start With Your Gift in my hands earlier in life.
Fred Opie was really helpful in developing a culture of character over talent and helping all of us understand what true integrity is and how to pursue it.
What Fred Opie says in his book Start With Your Gift about finding my gift, pursuing my passion, and finding inspiration in mentors carried me through my job search.
“Fred Opie and I have worked side by side to help build Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Lacrosse and promote its message of helping lacrosse coaches and athletes fulfill their God given potential mentally, physically, and spiritually.”
