Final exams are over, papers have been handed in, our students have returned home for rest and rejuvenation, and many of us will spend the joyous Christmas season with family and loved ones. In a season of giving and receiving, I offer you, as a gift, some of the wonderful moments and memories created by our students who have achieved so much. I hope from these stories you sense the positive impact they make on our campus life and in the larger community. I also want to share some of the exciting events that have happened at the university. Here are just a few snapshots from the semester.
