We had a lot of people come out in 2006, and we all had a great time. We had another great reception including some top-notch poster presentations by our students doing research in the department. We also had a really fun show in our new and improved planetarium. And the Homecoming Spectacular was perfectly executed, as usuall.
We did some new things in 2006. First of all, instead of attending the university alumni dinner, our excellent staff put together a fabulous buffet dinner in the Eyring science center. If you graduated recently, you know that our department really does food right. We also had an outstanding physics demo show by the department's demonstration master, Wayne Peterson. We received many nice compliments about both of these events, so we're doing them again in 2007.
I hope to see many new and familiar faces at our homecoming activities in 2007. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list so that you will get the announcement about next year's activities.
