Checking in with Dean Forbes -- October 2021

This fall's incoming class of undergraduate students was our largest yet at nearly 700 students. Our continued growth means we now have one of the larger cohorts of incoming students at the University. We even added a new CBS guild to accommodate the growing number of students!

Checking in with Dean Forbes -- September 2021

While the resurgence of COVID cases means we must remain cautious, it’s wonderful to be back on campus. The start of a new semester is always a time of high energy and some anxiety, particularly for students new to campus and college life. Not only are we welcoming our largest incoming class to date, but many students who started last fall will attend classes and labs on campus for the first time in person this fall as well. Please make them feel welcome (and stop to give directions when you see confused expressions!).
