Professor Celebrates His Birthday By Treating All His Students To Acai Bowls During Class

A man smiles as he takes a selfie outside. Behind him is a group of his students, who are also smiling.

No matter your age, everyone deserves a nice treat on their birthday. Even if you have to work, that doesn’t mean you can’t make your big day special. If you need an example of how that’s possible, look no further than this Purdue University professor. Although this professor had classes to teach on the day he turned 50 years old, this didn’t stop him from getting a tasty acai bowl — in fact, he did so much more!

According to one of his students, Ashtyn Huber, he didn’t want to be the only one enjoying a nice treat during class. So, instead, he gathered his entire class for a trip to get acai bowls. Best of all, he paid for it all! Excited about this surprise, Ashtyn documented the birthday festivities.

In the video, we can see that the class is not particularly small. Still, this generous professor doesn’t hesitate to treat his class on his own birthday. And based on the looks on the students’ faces, they couldn’t be happier about it! Over a million people have seen Ashtyn’s video, and the consensus is clear: This is one incredible professor!
