Director's Update January 2016
Well, it is mid-January here in Happy Valley and winter has finally arrived. At last, there IS snow on the Lion.
And like the snow, the students have come back and classes are underway. Spring semester always brings one of the highlights of the year—THON. I am proud to say that LER students are again in the thick of the world’s largest student-run charitable fund-raiser. But to break last year’s record and add to the $127 million THON has raised since its inception ($127 MILLION!!), they need your help. Take a look at the article below and, if you can, contribute to one of the greatest causes possible—pediatric cancer research.
Spring semester also brings our second Alumni Weekend of the year. On April 14 and 15 the LER Alumni Board and other interested alums will return to campus to meet and mentor our students, participate in our annual student/alumni forum, and reconnect with LER faculty and other alums. We will be sending out details in the weeks ahead, but block off the dates and make plans to come to campus in the spring. After the snow melts.
