Fall 2020. The start of the next academic year is here – and we’ve had an amazing team prepare for the welcome of new and continuing graduate students and undergraduates! The operative word of these times seems to be flexibility. And, we as a Department community have surely embraced this virtue, with new adventures in remote lab instruction to asynchronous and synchronous teaching to ramping up research efforts. Although the pandemic is still affecting how we carry out activities, the Department who are the people are standing strong. Enjoy the stories and features of our latest happenings.
