The holiday season is here! This winter is off to a cold start, but here at the college we are staying warm in labs and classrooms. We hope this newsletter finds you well and enjoying the holiday season.
The college has kept busy with several events. Earlier this semester the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry hosted Chem Week, where families came to experience the “sweet” side of chemistry, as the theme this year included the chemistry behind candy making.
Technical director Chris Buck visited BYU to talk to computer science students about his experience co-directing Frozen, as well as other experiences he’s had in his career. Jacob Merrell, from Pixar Animation Studios, also visited campus to give a lecture on lessons he’s learned while working at Pixar
Along with these activities, we have also had some exciting events and discoveries. The Department of Physics and Astronomy was well represented at this year’s Four Corners Meeting at Utah Valley University. There, students were able to present research and network with professional physicists.
This year has been a successful one for the college. Many of our faculty and students have been involved in groundbreaking research, helping to develop such things as at-home disease testing technology and innovative digital storage devices. Throughout the year, our students have excelled in the classroom and in research projects.
We are proud of our graduates, and we look forward to the things they will accomplish in the future, whether in further studies or in the workforce. We also anticipate many good things to come from new incoming students; our students are some of the best and brightest, and we have high confidence in them.
The holiday season is a time for reflection and gratitude. At the end of another great year, we are pleased with the progress we are seeing at CPMS. We look forward to even more progress and growth for next year. We are also thankful for the involvement and support of our alumni. You are an integral part of the college’s success, and we are blessed by your service. We hope to continue to include you in our progress.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from CPMS!
