Events for Prospective Graduate Students

| No Comments

Plans are in process for several events designed to introduce prospective graduate students to our graduate program and the wonders of EMA.

Mark your calendars and join us in welcoming prospective graduate students. We hope to have two students joining us in the Fall 2009. This event swayed prospective graduate students in the past - much of this persuasiveness was due to the participation of current graduate students in these events.

Please confirm with Diane if you can participate in any or all of the events.

Thank you,

Diane
