Tom Long is Professor of the year

On Tuesday, March 3, Tom Long, CSUSB associate professor of history, was ambushed during his Historical Documentaries lecture and awarded the Golden Apple Award. 

For the CSUSB community, the Golden Apple Award is also known as the Outstanding Professor of the year award, according to the San Bernardino Sun.

The decision of who becomes the professor of the year is solely up to students and alumni who nominate the professor by writing recommendations.

Every year, there is a traditional ambushing where the CSUSB president interrupts the professor’s class to present him with the award. This has been a tradition since the early 1990s.

Along with the award, Long will also receive a $2,000 educational grant and will be recognized further at a recognition ceremony that takes place in the end of the academic school year.
