Message from the Department Head
Welcome to that great week before the storm when our students tend to be more interested in working on their projects instead of talking to you. I guess this is a good thing overall, but if they would just make that small little change it would be so much better. I want to thank the Graduate and Faculty Affairs committees for their work last week on ironing out the PB MARCH details and the post-tenure review process.
Regarding the first, I had a nice conversation today with a student working on her civil engineering degree who is already planning on joining our PB MARCH when she is done in several years. I guess if you build it, they will come.
Even though the winter sapped much of my motivation to run this year, I ran the Garmin Marathon Saturday in Olathe. We had the pleasure of running through a good size thunderstorm toward the beginning, leaving soaked shoes along with puddles and mud to make it interesting. I keep saying I will stop after reaching milestones like number 15, but with 16 down I have no choice but to push for 20 before stopping. To get there sooner I will be running the New York City Marathon in November and then Dallas in December. I am already signed up for both so I can't slack off.
Final reviews start on Friday so please encourage your students to stop by as many as possible to see what their peers have been doing.
Have a great week.
