Comments:
I know this message board is supposed to be for professors, and Shen-laoshi is still a grad student, but I feel it is my duty to inform my peers that the most beautiful man in the world teaches at DCU. We all gasped out loud when he walked into the lecture hall, and when he smiled, the temperature of the room went up by at least five degrees. He told us this was his first time teaching a class, which is astonishing because he’s a better lecturer than the rest of my professors put together. I mean, I would have been grateful to sit and listen to this man recite the multiplication table, because he has the most soothing and sensual voice ever, but he’s really engaging and knowledgeable, and he has these soft, kind eyes that look into your soul. I don’t know how long he’ll be at DCU but I’m pretty sure he has changed my life just by being in it.

I’m in that class too and I concur. Shen-laoshi (full name Shen Wei, but we are not worthy to speak his name) has a smile that could make flowers grow, and eyelashes that could bring a dying man back to life.

Comments:
http://linguistics.dragoncityu.ca/people/faculty.html I went on the Linguistics Department website and his name and photo were added! He’s staying here permanently! I did some research and I think he’s the youngest professor our school has ever had. It’s so well-deserved; Professor(!!!!) Shen is AMAZING. He’s smart, he’s caring, he’s a FAST MARKER (seriously, I don’t think that man sleeps), and his face is pure artistic perfection. I don’t know what he’ll be teaching next year but I hope it’s some second-year courses because I might wither away otherwise.

I’ve never been more proud to be a Linguistics major. The next time a smarmy engineering student mocks our lack of potential job prospects, I’m just going to shove a photo of Professor Shen at their face and then laugh. I’m so happy for him. My parents are both professors, and they were both shocked at how quickly Professor Shen got a permanent contract. But let’s face it — Professor Shen has raised the collective pretty of the Linguistics Department by a factor of 100 and he is singlehandedly revitalizing public interest in our language.

Okay so I’ve heard about Professor Shen because who hasn’t at this point, but I really thought everyone was just exaggerating until I took this class. And oh my goodness, it’s all true you guys. His beauty is incandescent. His voice sounds like how high quality chocolate tastes. I asked him a question after class and got to see him up close for two whole minutes. I felt like I could die happy afterwards. Does he have grad students who work with him every day? How are they still alive?!

Comments:
Being Professor Shen’s grad student has been both the best and worst experience of my life. He’s absolutely brilliant, of course; he’s probably forgotten more about historical orthography than I’ll ever learn in my entire academic career. And he’s not an asshole about it either, which is refreshingly rare. But he’s also completely ruined me for anyone else, personally AND professionally. One time, I came to class sick, and he used his lunch break to make me soup. Who does that? Professor Shen, that’s who. I’m probably going to be single and lonely forever because no mere mortal could ever compare to his divine perfection.

Because I only took this course as a breadth requirement, and my parents will literally disown me if I don’t become a doctor or dentist or at the very least a pharmacist, but I would follow Professor Shen to Hell if only the university will let me do so.

To answer both your questions: 1) Professor Shen won’t read this. He doesn’t really like technology. I’m pretty sure he only uses email because the Dean makes him. 2) Linguistics Majors get priority in all LIN-coded courses, and the upper year courses tend to cap at about 40-50 students, so you could only get in based on open enrollment if there’s space. I’d recommend getting up early on course selection day and praying to Cangjie. Or maybe Guanyin.

Comments:
Professor Shen has accomplished, in three days, what my parents and a lifetime of formal education have not — he has made me on time for school. Not only on time, I’ve been getting to class EARLY because that’s the only way you can get a seat at the front of the lecture hall. And you WANT a seat at the front, because then you can experience the glory that is Professor Shen bathed in morning sunlight, his porcelain skin glowing like he’s lit from within, his hair painted auburn and chestnut in the golden rays. I’ll probably spend more money on coffee this term than on my textbooks, and it’ll be worth it.

Comments:
Bless this year’s unseasonably warm spring and DCU’s unreliable air conditioning, because today, Professor Shen came to class WITHOUT HIS JACKET. Don’t get me wrong — I love the walking suit porn that is Professor Shen on a regular day, but the vest cradles the lines of his body way better than the jacket does. And it’s short enough so you can see his butt. Which is magnificent, by the way. Also, I don’t know why he feels the need to wear sleeve garters when his shirts are clearly perfectly tailored, but I never want him to stop. I hope someone was able to take notes during today’s class because I heard nothing but wedding bells and the sound of my own pounding heart.

Yesterday, I stayed late at the library and was heading out when Professor Shen came along and offered to WALK ME BACK TO MY DORM. He even lent me his jacket to wear because it’d been weirdly cold right before he arrived. The jacket smelled like him. He spent the entire walk scolding me for being out so late at night and it was still the best six minutes of my life.

First of all, Professor Shen is a gift to academia and to humanity as a whole. But if you’re reading this post, you already know that. Here’s something you don’t know: I dropped by his office to ask a question and he was talking to the Dean, and I KNOW WHAT HE’S TEACHING NEXT YEAR. I could keep this information for myself, but I’m probably going to need the good karma on course selection day, so here goes: in addition to LIN100, he’s also teaching LIN355 (Preservation of Language Through Mythology and Folklore) and LIN401S (Historical Orthography). I’ve already checked, and LIN355 caps at 30 students; LIN401S is a seminar course that caps at 12. Cangjie bless our keyboards on course selection day.

Comments:
My hands are trembling as I type this and I’m still not entirely sure that I didn’t get hit by a car, die, and ascend to heaven, because this morning, as I walked into class, Professor Shen was wearing not his usual suit porn ensemble, but HANFU. All he needed was the long hair and he could have walked out of Nirvana in Fire. As if that wasn’t enough, today’s lesson was a joint venture with Fine Arts, on calligraphy. Which he demonstrated. While wearing hanfu. For the AUTHENTICITY. I don’t even remember what the actual lesson was about; all I could focus on was the delicate elegance of his wrists and fingers as he held his sleeve out of the way of his brush. We watched him grind his own ink and it was indisputably one of the most erotic things I’ve ever witnessed in my life.

It’s finally happened — Professor Shen has killed me. Mourn me not, my friends, for my cause of death was hearing Professor Shen instruct us, in his honey-rich voice, on how to put passion and feeling into our brushstrokes; when to use strength, when to use touch as delicate as a butterfly’s wing. My brain knew that our professor, being as pure and perfect as freshly fallen snow, wasn’t trying to be OVERWHELMINGLY PORNOGRAPHIC, but the… uh, baser parts of me definitely did not.

Comments:
For those of you who were in class today, I’m the loser who dropped all his brushes when he walked into the classroom. In my defense, when our professor said that we were going to have a guest in our art studio today, and that he was going to demonstrate calligraphy and ink wash painting, I was expecting some wrinkled old scholar with gnarled hands and no hair, not the most beautiful man in the world. Professor Shen looks like a creature from a dream, made of ivory and obsidian, with a touch of rosy dawn in his cheeks and lips. I’m going to paint him. I know we’re supposed to do a landscape, but I think my professor will understand.

Comments:
I was initially sad that I couldn’t get into LIN401S (all of you must have fingers like lightning, wow), but LIN355 ended up being probably the best, most interesting and engaging course I’ve ever taken. Granted, we didn’t get to witness the radiant beauty that is Professor Shen in hanfu, but we did get Professor Shen discussing centuries-old texts like he was actually there when they were written. His intimate knowledge of the context surrounding the writings, not to mention his esoteric and poignant anecdotes about the writers make it surprisingly easy to emotionally connect with material that would otherwise be dry as bone dust. Honestly, if I could find a time machine to take me back to the start of the semester so that I could retake this course, I definitely would.

This isn’t a professional review of Professor Shen, but I just needed to share this story. So, I was at the hospital visiting my stupid reckless brother when I ran into Professor Shen. Apparently he was there to visit a student from one of his elective classes. He had also brought food, because he’s actually the nicest man alive. I mean, I have professors who don’t even know their students’ names after a full semester, and here’s Professor Life-Ruiner here bringing food to a hospital to visit a student who has probably only attended one of his classes, given how quickly they fill up. Why does he have to be like this?!

Since he told us that he never closes his door during office hours, I was naturally curious and stuck around so I could see who was inside. About half an hour later, this man walks out and I THINK HE’S PART OF A GANG. He was wearing a leather jacket, and he was smoking, and he left the building in a MOTORCYCLE. But the most awful thing is that he was so rude to Professor Shen! He called Professor Shen by his NAME! And put his HAND on Professor Shen’s shoulder! Even the Dean doesn’t do that! Should I report this to campus security??

I can only assume that he and Professor Shen are good friends, because otherwise, I don’t understand why Professor Shen would allow this man to take so many liberties around him. I mean, yesterday, the office door was open, and I walked past just in time to see the man practically drape himself over Professor Shen’s desk and FONDLE THE BRUSHES he has hanging there. And Professor Shen just smiled politely and LET HIM. If they’re not friends, then the man is actually a gangster and he’s blackmailing Professor Shen with something awful.

All right, after a week of discreet surveillance, I have new information to report to my comrades: 1) Mystery Man is, in fact, SERIOUSLY hot. Admittedly, I like bad boys; I assume Professor Shen, being a man of sophistication and learning, has more refined tastes. 2) Mystery Man is possibly not just a gangster, but a HIGH-RANKING gangster, because I’m pretty sure I heard Professor Shen call him “Chief Zhao.” 3) “Chief Zhao” is clearly, and without any semblance of shame, trying to get into our professor’s perfectly tailored pants. I’m… actually both appalled and kind of impressed that he, a mere mortal, would have the audacity to lust after our professor, who is as beautiful and unattainable as the moon.

Of course Professor Shen is a grown man who can make his own decisions, but – a GANGSTER? No matter how handsome he is, I can’t imagine he’d be a good match for Professor Shen. For all that our professor appears worldly and self-assured, I think he’s actually quite shy. I did my final research paper on homoerotic undertones in poetry from the late Zhou dynasty, and when I presented my findings to the class, he BLUSHED (beautifully, of course, like a ripening peach). And the poem I was discussing was only SUBTLY erotic; it was mostly about a mountain range. Professor Shen seems far too pure for the vice and debauchery that is doubtless rife in the life of a gangster.

A reminder to everyone that this message board is intended for reviews of professors at DCU, not a forum for gossiping about our professors’ personal lives. But also, while I sympathize with your desire to protect Professor Shen from all the lecherously evil gangsters in the world, I’m relatively certain that he can take care of himself. I remember this one time when another scholar criticized one of Professor Shen’s publications; Professor Shen’s rebuttal was so devastating in rebuke and so savage in tone that the other guy left academia entirely. I can’t imagine any gangster being more vicious than the academic vultures we have here.

Will our car break down, stranding us in the mountains and forcing us to defend our beloved professor from ravenous wolves?

Okay, so a lot of weird shit happened on this field trip — possibly, ghosts are real — but that’s not the important thing. The important thing is that we discovered the identity of Improbably Hot Gangster — who, as it turns out, is not a gangster at all, but some kind of police officer! His name is Zhao Yunlan, and he’s actually very nice, despite his slovenly and disreputable appearance. He told us that he was Professor Shen’s “neighbour,” but they’re clearly boyfriends. He ate a fry from Professor Shen’s hand! He touched Professor Shen’s neck! And the way they LOOK at each other — it couldn’t be more obvious.

I will grant that Mr. Zhao is handsome, but I remain suspicious of him. I mean, what kind of police officer goes to fight ghosts in the mountains? Or has an associate who’s a monk? And lest we forget — shortly after he and Professor Shen left from dinner together, Professor Shen HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. I’m not saying supernatural influences were involved, but if anyone has a priest in their family, they might want to make a few phone calls.

I’m still not entirely sure that it wasn’t just a mass delusion caused by toxic mountain gases, but it’s not like anyone will believe me even if I tell them what happened, anyway. I also don’t know how useful this review will be to future students wanting to take this course, because last year’s class didn’t go on a field trip, so this might be a one-off. And just to chime in on Professor Shen and his Undeserving Hot Boyfriend, I don’t think it’s mind control or a curse. Professor Shen was really worried when Mr. Zhao went off into the ghost-infested forest, and Mr. Zhao was frantic when the paramedics took Professor Shen to the hospital. I think they really like each other. Stranger things have happened. I have witnessed them.

Comments:
Everyone, I think Professor Shen and Improbably Hot Boyfriend are living together. Last Monday, I happened to pass by the Languages building on my morning run, and saw Professor Shen get out of the biggest, reddest, most garish car I’ve ever seen. At first, I thought this was a hostage situation, but then I saw: 1) that the driver was Undeserving Hot Boyfriend (who has a new haircut, by the way), and 2) Professor Shen SMILE at said driver. Only through judicious use of agility was I able to keep my footing because Professor Shen’s smile is devastating. Naturally, I changed my running route to always pass by the Languages building at that time of day, and Undeserving Hot Boyfriend has dropped Professor Shen off at work every single day. They must be living together.

Comments:
I was looking through course options for next year, and LIN201 (Introduction to Semantics) is no longer available? I asked around and apparently Professor Shen asked for a reduced course-load because he’s got a “consulting job” with the police?? Is this because of Undeserving Hot Boyfriend??? IS THE GOVERNMENT TRYING TO POACH OUR BELOVED PROFESSOR????

Comments:
Was I the only one who didn’t know that we have a secret police organization dedicated to dealing with ghosts and other paranormal activity? Because there is. And guess who heads it? That’s right, Undeserving Hot Boyfriend. I’m trying not to be overly paranoid here, but between that and the fact that Professor Shen had a bandage on his hand when he came into lecture today, I can only conclude that Undeserving Hot Boyfriend is using our Professor Shen’s blood for his ghost hunting spells. Surely Professor Shen’s purity would be potent ghost-killing magic.

Posting here because a lot of you have been asking why I’ve been subbing in for Professor Shen for the past week. The short answer? Professor Shen has been away due to personal reasons to take care of a family affair. The long answer? I have no idea except I’m pretty sure it has something to do with Undeserving Hot Boyfriend because Professor Shen sounded worried when he called me and I could hear another man’s voice in the background.

Comments:
I have had the pleasure of being Professor Shen’s student for the third consecutive year now, and I have never, ever seen him look like he did yesterday in class. I can’t even really describe it, because it’s not like he was any LESS luminously, heartstoppingly beautiful — he just looked… sad? A little worn down? Just out of sorts, I’d say. And he was making mistakes. He NEVER makes mistakes in class. Professor Shen teaches us not to conjecture without evidence, but I can’t help but wonder if something is amiss with Undeserving Hot Boyfriend again…

Comments:
I vote we all channel our inner aunties and throw eligible men (and women? Might as well cover all our bases) at him. Because if Undeserving Hot Boyfriend isn’t capable of appreciating the paragon of perfection that is our Professor Shen, then he definitely doesn’t deserve to keep him.

Comments:
PROFESSOR SHEN AND UNDESERVING HOT BOYFRIEND GOT MARRIED, YOU GUYS! My brother works for a moving company, and apparently a Zhao Yunlan (yup, THAT Zhao Yunlan) called them and asked for help setting up the new house he bought for his “new bride.” Which, honestly, I know we’ve all had reservations about Undeserving Hot Boyfriend since the beginning, but — dude bought Professor Shen a HOUSE. In THIS economy! Maybe he does love Professor Shen after all?

Comments:
I want to say congratulations to Professor Shen, but let’s be real here — we all know that the real person who should be congratulated is this Zhao Yunlan guy. Seriously, how well did this guy have to live in his previous life to gain THIS much positive karma? Was he like, a literal god or something?

I’m absolutely delighted to have found this message board where I may speak the words of my heart to so many individuals who share my love for the incomparable Professor Shen Wei. What could be more blissful than to be a willing vessel for the heavenly pillar of Professor Shen’s vast and unrelenting knowledge? I am but a parched chrysanthemum, waiting to be reinvigorated by the arrival of clouds and rain. Professor Shen is as kind as an older brother, as honorable as a liege lord, as rare as dragon pearls and as precious as a stalk of finest jade. I am truly blessed.

Comments:
For anyone who actually wants some useful information, here’s a real, unbiased review of Professor Shen. He’s a very good lecturer, and he’s always in his office during office hours, which is good because he only checks his email about once a week. He’s also a tough grader. You basically have to do the required reading or you won’t be able to follow what’s going on in class. Don’t pick this course if you’re looking for an easy way to boost your average.
