Computer and electrical engineering professor Dr. Robert O'Connell stands alongside various memorabilia in his Engineering Building West office on Thursday, Aug. 28. Many of O'Connell's students hail from India, China and other Asian countries, where it is tradition for students to give their teachers gifts. O'Connell has received so many of these gifts that he has run out of places to showcase them in his house and keeps many of them in his office.
