Giving Thanks, and Working Toward the Semester’s End

A Short Week Before the Big Push

With the Thanksgiving Holiday on many of our minds, the work week and class days last only through Wednesday. Following that, there is one more week of classes and exams won’t be far behind. We hope that each of you has something for which to be thankful, and we will do out best to helpmake your academic semester a success.
