Looking Back, Looking Forward
May is a time of both reflection and anticipation. In this issue, look back with us on noteworthy moments, such as Professor George Saunders’ celebrated convocation speech of 2013 and the Hall of Languages' "birthday." We also celebrate our recent graduates and award-winning faculty, who, through cutting-edge research and scholarship, are contributing to a healthier, more hopeful and more humane future.
Meantime, stay connected to A&S on social media (search @ArtSciencesSU) and by checking the A&S news page. Keep in touch!
