Dean's Update: August 2022

Aug 18 2022 - 10:00am

For our students, the start of the fall semester is filled with excitement and new opportunities. For our alumni, the start of the new school year likely stirs up fond memories of what college life was like “back in the day.” In my visits with alumni, I’ve heard stories of nefarious activities between the Kissing Columns, late-night food runs while live on KRNU and incredible newsroom take-overs during summer reporting classes. However, my favorite stories are about the impact our professors have had on the lives and livelihoods of students. Inspired by a conversation with 1969 grad Glenn Friendt, we collected stories about the impact Professor Al Book had on his students over the years. I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I did!
