College is an incredibly stressful time for students. From 10-page essays to comprehensive exams, getting through college is a handful. However, the college experience can certainly be enjoyable when you have wonderful professors to help you. One student soon learned what a difference it makes when you interact with a professor that is genuinely there to support you.
College is a stressful period for any students looking to get a higher education. It’s not all about partying and joining fraternities. A lot of college is just a bunch of studying and writing papers.

While regular students have it rough enough throughout college, single mom’s especially have to work hard to make it through. Dealing with exams and the stress of raising a child all on their own is incredible difficult. Those were the difficulties one student was facing…
18. One Student
Morgan King is a college student as well as a single mom. Navigating through college was a real challenge for this young woman as she also worked hard to raise her daughter, Korbyn. However, she knew it was worth working hard for.

Each day, Morgan would wake up and work hard at school while also caring for her daughter. Throughout the process she learned how to balance out her responsibilities without letting anything fall apart. However, everything didn’t always work according to plan.
16. Falling Apart
Not everything in life can work according to plan and that was a lesson that Morgan was about to learn. As hard as she worked to keep up with both Korbyn and her schoolwork, sometimes things didn’t always work out. This was one of those times.

On this particular day, Morgan had to unfortunately miss class. Instead of just missing class without saying anything, she decided to email her professor. She sent the professor a long apology email for missing class.

In fact, the response was so shocking that Morgan decided to share it on Twitter with all of her followers. She posted it with the following caption: “Told my professor I missed class yesterday bc I couldn’t find childcare & this was her response. I’m literally crying.

It seems that Professor Sally B. Hunter completely understood Morgan’s reasons for missing class. In fact, she was so understanding that she told Morgan that she could also hand in her work online. However, the response doesn’t end there!
