We celebrated!

Our colleague Casey McGinnis completed his Ph.D. this spring while teaching a raft of new classes at UMD. We celebrated his achievement at a party Friday May 16th, the night before UMD Commencement. So it was also a little bit of an end-of-the-year party. Philosophers Sean Walsh, David Cole, Jason Ford, Mark Newman, Eve Browning (hosting) and of course the guest of honor 'Exploding Philosopher' McGinnis were all in attendance, along with honorary department members Krista Twu, John Schwetman, and their sons. A number of our graduating seniors and other students also were able to attend.
