The Fall Semester Begins!

And part of the process of starting up is a day of meetings. Since we're all together (one), it seemed like a good time to make a group photo.

From left to right: the back row... Steve Whisnant, Mark Mattson, Geary Albright, Brian Utter, Lynn Lucatorto, Harold Butner, William Alexander, Jim Butt, Thomas O'Neill; The middle row... Bill Ingham, Art Fovargue, Sean Scully, Chris Hughes, Scott Paulson, Anca Constantin, Gabriel Niculescu; The front row... Kevin Giovanetti, Joe Rudmin, Dorn Peterson, Giovanna Scarel, Ioana Niculescu, Don Chodrow.

There are 22 of us in the picture, 21 full time. We're now a pretty big department. Just one big happy family.
