Thank you for dropping in to visit and we hope you'll have an enjoyable experience as you see familiar faces and names.

Please keep in touch by whatever means are most convenient; indeed, we welcome alumni visitors whether announced or not. I know University Park is a little (or a lot) out of the way; however, there is no substitute for seeing Buckhout Lab and other sights once again.
