“As dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, I think it is vitally important to celebrate the fine work done by our students and enabled by the fine work of our faculty,” said Dr. Rose. “Students who have accomplished literally ‘outstanding’ work deserve to have their achievement note,” Rose said. “This happy event allows the celebration to be shared by students, their families, and their professors.”
