Welcome to the June edition of our eNewsletter. With spring and summer upon us, we are excited about the research opportunities afforded our students during these months. BYU’s schedule provides a substantial amount of time during these summer months for our students to pursue research and internships.
Within the college, we have students studying mechanisms for combatting HIV, how glaciers can give us information regarding climate change, nanoscience applications that can contribute to energy solutions, and how separation analysis can be performed with smaller, cheaper equipment—just to name a few.
The Department of Geological Sciences becomes especially active during these summer months, with field camps operating all over Utah in places like Green River, Wendover, Kanarraville, Fillmore and the San Rafael Swell. Summer is ideal for taking advantage of the unique location of BYU and its surrounding geological formations, and the students participating with professors in each of these field camps are doing just that.
As our readers, there are several areas where we are always interested in hearing your feedback. As alumni, you are already well aware of the great education CPMS offers.
We’d like to hear from you about where your degree has taken you. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any news about your career or your family. We’ll be publishing this in the upcoming issue of Frontiers, coming out in September. Speaking of Frontiers, we are still accepting submissions for the Memory Bytes section of Frontiers. You can email us (email@example.com) with your anecdotes (of up to 200 words) about balancing religion and science.
Finally, if you have any feedback regarding our websites or any other materials we produce, we welcome that feedback. We would like to know if the articles, subject matter, and quantity, are serving your needs. We truly appreciate hearing from you.
You may also be interested to know that we have hired some great new faculty in the college this year. We look forward to introducing our exceptional new hires of 2012 to you in the near future. We are certain you will also enjoy getting acquainted with them through this newsletter.
Warm and safe June to all,
