Students tend to find Crow's classes fascinating, exciting and inspiring. In recognition of his excellence in teaching, he was awarded the Regents Award for Superior Teaching in 2008 and again in 2010. Despite his reputation as an outstanding teacher, however, Crow is probably best recognized on campus as the sponsor of the largest student club at USAO, The Zombie Survivalists' Club.
