This professor is close to his students

Michael Humphrey lives in a dorm on the campus of Boise State University.

But he's not a student.

He's a professor who lives in the residence hall with his wife, 2-year-old daughter and the family dog.

Humphrey is one of five faculty members living in the Idaho dorms.

The idea is to help students cope with the personal and academic challenges of campus life.

He says he's helped with everything from tying a neck tie, to lending a cup of sugar to his student neighbors.

It's also a good deal for the profs.

They get to live rent-free for two years.
