Teaching professor of accounting Anne Clem introduces herself to students at the outset of her Accounting 284 -- Financial Accounting class Tuesday, the first day of the semester. Clem is in her 28th year teaching the course for the business college, reaching 600-800 students per term.

"Every semester is an opportunity to share with a new group of students as they discover their passions, interests and strengths. It is amazing to get to be a small part of their journey while they're at Iowa State. The first days of class are among my favorite days of each year," Clem said.
