I have a long history of buying edible treats for my classes. I started by bringing my students chocolate or cookies when they took exams as a way of trying to take their mind off the stress. I eventually discovered that their appetites are better when they’re not having an exam, and I starting bringing things at other times during the quarter. And I’ve tried just about every treat imaginable including chocolate, cookies, brownies, donuts, and donut holes. My very unscientific study has shown that donuts are by far the most popular treat. Students love donuts with a passion, and I finally have evidence I can post here too. Below is a meme that one of my students spontaneously made for me in response to the donuts I brought today.


I rest my case.
