      Website places Michigan Tech on worst professors list

      A recent article released by Yahoo! Finance provides a list of the 25 universities with the worst professors, naming Michigan Tech as number two.

      The article cites data from RateMyProfessors.com, a website where students can share their thoughts about their instructors. The website asks for students to rate their profs on a scale of 1 to 5 on helpfulness, clarity, and easiness.

      The school listed as the worst was the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, followed by Michigan Tech in second. Michigan Tech president Glenn Mroz says the website is not a valid source for quality of Tech professors.

      "I don't think 'trash' is too strong of a word. It's not a representative sample, it's not a scientific poll of what students think," said Mroz. "They list 775 faculty members for Michigan Tech; 400 of those people don't work here. So, really, it's garbage."

      Other universities on the list were the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in third and Central Michigan University in twelfth.
