UMM sings farewell to long-time professor Jim Togeas
MORRIS -- On Friday, May 3, a “flash mob” of University of Minnesota, Morris students, faculty and staff invaded chemistry professor Jim Togeas' last chemistry class at UMM to sing a modified version of the Minnesota Rouser.
When he retires this spring, Togeas will have taught at UMM for 51 years. In that time, he is estimated to have given over 7,000 lectures. He plans to continue teaching honors courses.
The lyrics of the modified rouser are as follows:
Mister Togeas, Hats off to thee!
To your spirit true we shall ever be
Lib'ral Arts for you and for me
It's not only chemistry! History! Cosmology!
Thank you, from all you see
T-O-G-E-A-S ROCKS! Mr. Togeas, Mr. Togeas, YEAHHHHHHHH TOGEAS!
