Rector professor Rik Van de Walle
EEPLY MOVED WHEN THE RECTOR CALLED ME TO ASK ME, BECAUSE GENT IS GRADUALLY BECOMING MY SECOND HOME TOWN. I AM A BIG FAN. WHEN THE RECTOR CALLED ME ABOUT THE HONORARY DOCTORATE, HE SAID THAT THE INTENTION WAS TO KEEP ME HERE AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. I PROMISED HIM I WOULD DO MY BEST."
