Happy Holidays

Despite the autumnal weather, it's mid-December, which means exams are in full swing and the 2015 Fall Session is coming to a close. The Faculty wishes you good luck on your final exams and a restful break before lectures resume in January.

In this month's Engineering Student e-News, learn about post-exam services offered by the Office of the Registrar, important dates and deadlines for the Winter Session and how three of your fellow Engineering undergrads fared at a recent swim meet.

The Office of the Registrar will remain open until 4 p.m. on December 22 to assist you with any questions or requests you might have before the holiday closure.
