With the ongoing pandemic, our end-of-semester holiday “outing” moved to a virtual Zoom room. Fun times were had by all (thanks to pre-prepared goodie bags) with an ornament coloring contest, holiday crossword puzzle, and Christmas Scattergories, along with other games and prizes. Wishing everyone a safe and healthy holiday season!

We weren’t able to have our usual lab outing before the holiday break, so we made up for it today. We ventured to Lumberjaxe for an afternoon of axe throwing and food. Everyone had a safe and fun time, with a few bullseyes secured. We’ll have to do this again.
We’re excited for a new year and new semester. Congratulations to undergraduate researchers Kyndra Higgins, Otuto Nwagbata, and Rachel Yu for receiving CURO Research Assistantships for the spring semester!
