Dean's Message - February 2013

Happy Chinese New Year! This year’s Spring Festival welcomes the Year of the Snake, beginning February 10.

Early numbers show continuing increases in both applications and applicants to our Faculty for 2013 admission.

Welcome to new Communications Officer Anna Beard. Drop by her office Mathematics 3 (M3) room 2113 to say hello.

Vicky Liu, who was based in our Shanghai office, is now working on campus. The Shanghai office is officially closed. Vicky will continue to serve as Recruiting, Admissions and Outreach Officer, Asia but from here with a couple of long trips to China each year.

Those working in Mathematics & Computing Building (MC) will have noticed that the sixth floor renovation project is well underway.

The Faculty's Facebook page continues to grow in popularity with a mix of future and current students, alumni, faculty and staff who ‘like’ it. A Twitter feed has also been introduced. You may wish to join the conversation!
