Dr. Z,

Retire happily.

Aw-sum Jobb
Zim University

Dear Mr. Zimbardo,

Warm wishes from Iceland on your retirement day (although it's quite cold up here). It's actually inspiring for an undergraduate psychology student to know already that you can have people eat grasshoppers when you graduate.

Sigrúnsif Jóelsdóttir
University of Iceland

Dr. Zimbardo,

Your handed-down knowledge and experience has been extremely influential in my growing love for psychology. Thank you for that gift. Good luck in the future.

Lia Jordano

Thank you for your tremendous contributions to the field and laying down a strong foundation upon which new generations of psychologists can build.

Matthew Keck
Boston College

I very recently met you through a twist of fate, and it was a wonderful experience! Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge with us all and for helping us learn a lot and laugh a lot. Maybe I'll see you at the Ig Nobel Prizes someday!

Erin Kennedy

Congratulations from 85 AP Psychology students in Connecticut. While none of my students have had you or seen you live -- they feel like they know you from the Discovering Psychology series. I do, too! Enjoy your retirement and realize how many people you have touched.
