Auberon Crocker giving us a quick pose in Phil 302. He lost his bet with Prof. Hight that the Greenbay Packers would make the Super Bowl. After Auberon paid up (cupcakes for the class) Hight did too - homemade brownies.

At right: Prof. Hight poses with Robert Morris and their awards. Robert won the best student trailer!

Neil Smith - philosophy major par excellance who graduated in 2012 - returns to the Hill for the UPLS spring ball in April 2018.


Neil is here surprised that Prof. Hight has not forgotten Neil's promise to send him a copy of his (Neil's) short film project.


In December 2017 Prof. Hight made his first handcrafted soap (with the assistance of Prof. Dunn). Hight was presenting at the HSCG conference in Atlanta in May (on the relevance of behavioral economics to small businesses) and Dunn said he couldn't go without having first made soap.
