On Thursday, May 15, 2014, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics bid a fond farewell to another exceptional group of graduates. After the students processed in before their proud families and friends, the department co-chairs, Dr. Cathy Liebars and Dr. Thomas Hagedorn, gave a brief welcome and then read out the long list of student achievements. Dr. Carlos Alves stepped up to the podium and gave a speech that touched on how we will all miss this extraordinary group of young people. Then our own Elizabeth Sweeney ’14 introduced a slideshow of pictures and quotes that she had put together (Part 1 and Part 2). Finally the degrees were conferred and, after a few more words from the co-chairs, everyone reassembled in the Science Complex courtyard to mingle and take pictures.
Although we will miss them terribly, we wish our Class of 2014 great joy in all that they do, and we look forward to hearing all about their future successes.
