It’s hard to believe, but the new year has already arrived, and along with it this year’s first eNewsletter! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season full of new, warm memories.
The start of every year is the perfect time to reflect on the things we’ve accomplished and to set new goals for the new year. Here at CPMS, we certainly have had an eventful twelve months, and this next year is already shaping up to be an exceptional one.
Thinking back, it’s amazing to see the many ways that CPMS has changed over the years, and the many memories that have been created within the college. Certainly we can all remember the many stressful, perhaps sometimes comical, hours we spent here. Maybe a lab mishap left you missing an eyebrow, or maybe you fell victim to a friend’s failed experiment. Perhaps your lab experiences were more meaningful to you and your research. No matter what area of science we specialized in, we’ve all experienced the ups and downs of working with lab equipment as a student!
In fact, we would love to hear about your memorable experiences while you were studying at BYU. Please email us your anecdotes (up to 200 words) at firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Memory Bytes,” in the
subject line. We’ll publish the best stories in the next issue of Frontiers, the college alumni magazine.
As part of the new year, we also have pledged to maintain the highest standard of excellence at the college in order to keep BYU’s environment conducive to providing experiences that result in these cherished memories. After all, those memories are what make the BYU experience so special.
To that end, we are very excited to announce this year’s Izatt-Christensen lecture. World-renowned chemical engineer Robert Langer, from MIT, will be lecturing on February 6 and 7, 2013. The general session will be on February 6 at 4 p.m. in the JSB Auditorium, and the more technical session will be on the following day at 11 a.m. in W111 of the Benson Building. We are honored to have this brilliant scholar—named one of the 100 most important people in America—speak to us this year.
As we move forward into 2013, we will continue to keep you updated about our activities and progress. Thank you for being a part of our college family and for your continued support.
