As we draw closer  to the end of the semester, I’ve been on a quest to watch new things on Netflix. I’ve succeeded.

I find myself rewatching a lot of comedic shows for background noise, especially...

The changes we see on campus never come easily, but the university's outreach and fellowship never stop even though it may come in different forms. It took a lot of work to plan, construct and pay for the buildings that we walk by every day. Grants had to be sought and secured, contracts had to be signed, and many decisions ha...
