After a semester of leading discussion sections, on Wednesday TA Michael Mulligan left his students in the room for Evaluations. While he had hoped that he did a good enough job as a TA to warrant a good eval, there was consensus among students that he just wasn't hot enough.
"He was probably a good TA," said student Candace Howe. "I just had trouble finding a reason to pay much attention cause of the not-hot thing, y'know?"
"I always came to section," said student Nate Lee. "But I was mostly just doing homework for my classes with hotter TA's."
Mulligan wrongly attributed low participation to the difficulty of making students care about learning, when it was really due to the difficulty of making students care about a TA that isn't hot.
