Run Osler, Run

Staff Photo by Tim Hawk for

Tom Osler (Courant '69) likes to run. He likes to run so much in fact that he claims he has logged over 100,000 miles.

But it's not as though all the Running Man does is run. A respected Rowan University mathematics professor since 1972, Osler has achieved a classroom trifecta in less than half of 2009. He recently was honored at Monmouth University by the New Jersey Section of the Mathematical Association of America for distinguished teaching. That follows two previous 2009 accolades: AFT Union Gary Hunter Mentoring Award and the Journal of Mathematics and Computer Education Award.

  1. 100,000 miles! Wow! If that's him in the picture, he certainly looks healthy and vibrant! My uncle is a lifetime runner and he always boasts about his 60K achievement. I just emailed him this article in hopes that it will inspire him to get back into it. Very motivating post!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Rudy!
