The Office of Multicultural Affairs and Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning want you to meet:

Chris Cherry 091613 WEBDr. Chris Cherry

Hometown:  Denison, Texas by way of College Station, Texas

Department or Office:  I supervise the Student Success Team, which includes Academic Advising, Multicultural Affairs, First Year Experience, Career Services, and Student Support Services. I also teach anthropology and sociology courses in the Social Inquiry department from time to time.

Where did you attend college, grad school, doctoral school?:  I attended Texas A&M University (Gig 'em, Aggies!) for my undergraduate and both graduate degrees in anthropology and sociology.

In one sentence what is your advice for students to be successful?:  What your major is in college is less important than what you learn in college.

What is your favorite book?:  My favorite book is On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee. It's good science, fun history, and wonderful writing. Every time I pick it up, I learn something new.

One fun fact about you:  A big part of my doctoral research was on the way men and women lie about the number of people they have sex with throughout their lives.
