If you've taken classes on campus, there's a good chance you've met Professor John Ryan. Having taught at Capitol from 1968 to 1973 and again from 1994 to the present, you'd think he would have learned everything there is to know about his courses.
"I learn something new every time I teach a course," Ryan said. "My students have taught me that there is always something new to learn, even if I've been teaching a class for years."
