How to Ace Professor-Student Relationships?

This week, the tragic death of esteemed Professor Bosco Tjan who was stabbed by his graduate student is heartbreaking for everyone at USC. Even though nobody tends to relate professor-student relationship with a criminal act or a tragedy, negative relationships between professors and students can be distressing.

To international students in American universities, their professors, who are mostly native Americans, are not just their teachers, but also people who share different cultural norms with them. Therefore, I hope that my summary from interviews with 6 professors at USC can help you if you have ever been confused about how to improve professor-student relationships.
