I trust you had an enjoyable summer. I got to play Ultimate (frisbee) with the Bulgarian team!
We’ve been busy remodeling the front office. Thanks to the hard work of Adam and Petya it looks great. Once again you’ll be able to enjoy daily coffee (and the occasional doughnut).
This year the department will have 15 full time tenured or tenure-earning faculty. This is a peak that was reached only once previously (briefly in 2008).
We welcome seven new doctoral students, one new master student, and 17 MSGIS students.
We have a great lineup of speakers for our colloquium series this semester. Please check the website for updates.
Petya is on a short leave and will return September 18th.
I wish you all the best this academic year.
