Message from the Dean
January 12th, 2009
I just wanted to briefly welcome you all back to campus after what I hope was a relaxing and enjoyable winter break. Happy New Year!
The spring semester will be underway in a couple of days and I’d like to encourage all of our students to continue challenging yourselves in your endeavors at the University, especially our seniors. Even though graduation is fast approaching there are still so many opportunities worth exploring here at the U of R, both in terms of courses and research projects. And do not hesitate to branch out and immerse yourselves in areas of study that are unfamiliar. Whether you plan to pursue graduate education, or dive right into the professional world, you have every reason to keep expanding your knowledge base and honing your skills as engineers and critical thinkers.
Personally, I’m thrilled to be back, and anxious for what promises to be an exciting semester to get started. There will be plenty of SEAS-related happenings to report on in the coming weeks with National Engineers Week scheduled for February 15-21. Pass along any news you would like to share – it is always great for the SEAS community to hear about what everyone is up to.
