Dr. Blackstock

From Interviewer to Interviewee

Written by Jessie Fox

It’s a funny thing when the interviewer turns into the interviewee. That’s what happened when I walked into Dr. Robert Blackstock’s office last year to ask him a couple of questions for a Collegian article. He shook my hand, gave me the most quotable responses I could ask for, and then turned the tables on me.

Though we had never met, Dr. Blackstock invested a great deal of interest into hearing about my hometown, my family, and my studies. I was initially cautious, but his warm smile drew me into a genuine conversation that I won’t soon forget. You can be sure that I’m counting down the days until senior year when I can enroll in one of his courses and pick up where we left off.
