Fall semester officially began this week, and the department was thrilled to welcome our incoming class of graduate students with a picnic at Spring Canyon Park. Faculty introduced their new students and shared a little about the research each student will be doing. The whole department was invited and enjoyed barbecue catered by Famous Dave’s and music by Chad Fell Down, a band comprised mainly of Atmos and CIRA staff. Graduate Representative Jakob Lindaas announced the recipient of the Professor of the Year Award, Dave Randall, and presented him with a plaque.
