Welcome to the April edition of our eNewsletter. As the current semester comes to a close in Provo, we look forward to the many new possibilities that the impending summer will bring to the college – including warmer weather!
Last month, we held our 24th annual Spring Research Conference on campus. About 350 students – over half of them undergraduates – were able to participate and present their original research to a diverse audience. This was not only a stimulating event for us to showcase the great work being performed here at BYU, but it also represented a terrific opportunity for the students to gain valuable experience presenting and explaining their research to an outside audience, ultimately preparing them for their future endeavors.
During the conference, we were also pleased to host our College Volunteer Leadership Council for its semi-annual meetings. This generous group of individuals has dedicated significant time and effort to improving the resources and opportunities available in the college, and we are thankful for their continued service. A number of our students
are currently obtaining a quality education and peforming hands-on undergraduate research because of their support of our programs.
We are excited about the many opportunities that lie ahead for our faculty and our students. While our faculty members will diligently continue to conduct cutting-edge scientific research on-campus this summer, many students will be putting their knowledge to work in internships that will expand their understanding and prepare them for their respective careers. We are proud of our students and alumni, and their continued impact on industry and academia.
In that spirit, we’d like to know where you are and what you are doing. We now regularly feature alumni in our college magazine, Frontiers, and it helps us tremendously to receive communication from you to keep us informed about the great things you are involved with. We are proud of the work being performed by our alumni and we want to highlight those achievements. Please keep in touch with the college by sending us an update at firstname.lastname@example.org.
