Welcome to the first eNewsletter of 2011! We hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season and are experiencing a happy, healthy new year thus far. As alumni and friends of the college, we value your support and look forward to sharing another year with you here at the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
As we enter yet another new semester, we are excited about the many promising activities and events that lie ahead in 2011. As always, we will strive to provide the best possible educational environment for our students, while also promoting a rigorous focus on cutting-edge research and scientific advancement.
To that end, we are very much looking forward to hosting our 25th annual Student Research Conference on Saturday, March 19th. As they do every year, talented students from across the college's scientific and mathematical disciplines will present their individual research to faculty, alumni, friends of the college, and members of the community. This event continues to provide a uniquely wonderful opportunity for students to share what they've
learned and for CPMS to showcase the ground-breaking things happening here on campus.
We invite anyone interested in BYU, the college, our students, or just scientific research in general to join us for this annual event. We relish the opportunity to present our student's top-notch work to a broader audience — they work so hard day in and day out, and it is truly a joy to share the fruits of those labors with all of you. We will share more details as the conference moves closer.
As always, we hope you enjoy the many articles included in this month's eNewsletter. These stories offer a snapshot of the great work currently being done here at BYU — and of the boundless opportunities for learning and scientific advancement that will remain available to our student and faculty members in the coming year.
As we move forward into 2011, we will continue to keep you updated about our activities and progress. We thank you for being a part of our college family and for your continued support.
