sam Chung

It is time to wrap up another quarter. Hopefully, these last ten weeks have provided a meaningful learning experience.  A year ago, we implemented Brightspace, our new learning platform. It was a rocky road at first, and in retrospect, a great learning experience. We continue to find ways to enrich course content and provide you with extracurricular opportunities.   

Use this spring break to access those extracurricular activities. Listen to one or all the three Invited Talks from Winter Quarter. Relax, spend time with friends and family, recharge your batteries. Be ready on Monday, April 3rd , to start Spring Quarter refreshed, relaxed, and ready to learn!
