Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity, I genuinely feel like I learned a lot throughout the semester and I really enjoyed it (much more than I expected to admittedly). Though I realize that I'm going to be back in Atlanta next semester, I'm not sure how realistic any research opportunities would be through you, but I figure it's worth asking regardless. I would be very interested in continuing to do some kind of research through you if there was any method of doing that at a remote campus like Atlanta, though I realize it's a stretch. Thanks again for the opportunity and I hope you have a fantastic holiday season! (2017p)

2015

Dr. Declercq, Although I've only known you for the short time in your thermodynamics class this summer, this was one of the most heartfelt messages I've ever read. I know you have probably gotten many messages with their sympathies, but I wanted to simply thank you for still teaching us this semester. Your father sounds like a wonderful man who touched the lives of many people. It must be incredibly sad to face this, but I am blown away with you still coming back to help us through this class (believe me I could not learn this material myself). I believe he would be very proud. Thank you for all that you do. (2015a, one of the messages after Declercq’s father’s death.)

In another account I would just like to mention again that this has been a great semester and I very much enjoyed our short conversations on random topics ranging from Shahrukh's acting to thermo-economics. Also your analogies in class made thermo much less dry. Thank you so much for all the effort you have put in into teaching us. You are greatly appreciated. (2015b)
*
It was a very interesting semester and I wanted to thank you for that. Good continuation. (2015c)

Hello Professor, I wanted to email you and tell you I really loved thermo this semester. It was an awesome class and I was very happy with the class in terms of what I learned. The project was a ton of fun and I appreciated how helpful you were all of the time. I hope you get to see your family more over the summer and I hope that you get a nice break in between semesters. Thank you for all of your help and Teaching. (2014c)

Once again, thank you for having been such a great professor this semester- I really enjoyed the class. Hopefully I will get to see you while I'm at GTL in a couple of months time. (2014d)

Fall 2013
Fall 2013 The students designed a noteboard at the GTL lobby to thank whoever they liked to thank, and included several notes to thank Declercq.

Despite having to rush at the end, you remained enthusiastic and covered what we needed to go through in Fluid Mechanics. Thanks for everything! (2013a)

Professor,Thanks for a great semester. In these 5 weeks I have learned better and performed ten times better…. Your class made me learn the material and enjoy the subject.

*
Greetings Prof. Nico, Thanks for the great semester, I learned a lot from this course. I hope it will help me in my future. What a humble Professor you are. (2012c)
*
Dear Dr. Declercq, First of all, I want you to know I really enjoyed having you as a teacher for the summer and If I ever go to GTL for the fall or spring I will be sure to say hello. Secondly, I've always enjoyed playing music and when you discussed your research it really interested me into looking more into it later on for the future. And some other ideas for when your family comes to Atlanta, maybe you could take them to Six flags, to a concert at the Fox theatre or even visit Stone mountain. Thank you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. (2012d)
*
Thank you very much professor for being an excellent teacher. I really feel like I learned a lot. Even though it was only five weeks, I think I will remember this for a long time to come. Have fun with your family in Atlanta! (2012e)
