Fall is officially here: there is a chill in the air, the leaves are changing, Halloween is just around the corner, and students are settling into classes and homework schedules.
As the semester gets into full swing, we are grateful to have everyone back at BYU. Autumn is time for back-to-school, and we are excited about the great things we have already seen from our students, alumni, and faculty. We love to watch students succeed and find joy in their studies. We know there are only more good things to come at CPMS this year, and we are eager to share them with you.
The October calendar is packed full of events. Homecoming week is October 14–18, and the football game isn’t the only thing you shouldn’t miss.
Events will be held throughout the week, both within the college and across the university. The college will be hosting the annual Honored Alumni Lecture on October 16 at 11:00 a.m. Gregory Hebertson, Senior Vice President of Exploration at Midstates Petroleum, will deliver a lecture titled, “Mastering Your Fate: A Few Insights from a Career in Science.” The lecture will take place in room 1170 of the Talmage building.
Check your department website to find out what other events we will be hosting.
We value Homecoming week as an opportunity to celebrate BYU and to welcome our alumni back onto campus.
Additionally, National Chemistry Week is October 20–27. BYU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will join with enthusiasts around the country to promote and increase awareness of chemistry’s effect on our daily lives.
We hope you will come see us on campus and participate in as many of these events as interest you.
Finally, we are working on the Spring 2015 issue of Frontiers magazine, and we are in need of alumni news to update our readers on the interesting endeavors of their colleagues and fellow alumni.
Please email cpms.byu.edu and tell us where you are working, what you are working on (research, etc.), and any other interesting endeavors you are involved in. Include what degrees you have received, the years you received them, and the institutions where you received them. Please also give us your current city of residence so we can give accurate information in the magazine. We look forward to reading about what you are up to!
