Behind the Syllabus: Robert Phillips

Courtesy of Robert Phillips

What do you do on the weekends?

Some combination of work (school, scholarship and yard), and sports watching (season tickets to UR football and basketball, large HD-TV, and myriad Little League events).

What's the craziest thing you did when you were in college?

In the immortal words of Tron Carter, "I plead the fif."

What's one thing your students would never guess about you?

I'm surprisingly good at Super Mario.

If you could take a year off to do anything, what would you do?

If I could take a year off, I would see a lot of live music, mountain bike/snowboard depending on the season and play poker.
