Welcome to the latest edition of our alumni eNewsletter! As summer winds down and autumn begins, classes for our CPMS students kick off, and we couldn’t be more excited about what our fall semester has to offer.
Last year’s students set a high standard of excellence in not only class performance but also in hands-on research. But we are confident that this year’s students will exceed our expectations. We welcome our students’ return and hopefully yours as well for Homecoming activities coming up in October.
This fall, we have an array of distinguished lecturers coming to the college to speak. On September 6, the Department of Physics & Astronomy presented a public lecture by Dr. Steven Spangler, of the University of Iowa. Dr. Spangler spoke about the sun in its year of solar maximum, a topic that impacts all of us. Two weeks later, the department will welcome another great speaker, David Grandy, from BYU’s Department of
Philosophy, for the
Summerhays Lecture which will take place September 21. The Summerhays Lecture annually brings together science and religion, exhibiting that although at times the two may seem incompatible, they actually complement one another beautifully.
The annual Izatt-Christensen Lecture in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry will be presented by Dr. Adam Woolley, who specializes in analyzing the relationship between chemistry, engineering, and biology. We’re looking forward to these lectures so that our students and our alumni can both benefit from the insights of these intellectual giants.
We hope to see you at some of these lectures, so that you too may rub shoulders with our CPMS students, some of the greatest young minds in the country. We are grateful for the start of this new school year and for the generosity of you, our alumni. I know that if we expand our minds together, we will expand our world as well.
