Welcome to the Fall Semester

It’s my pleasure to welcome you to another academic year and hope that you are settling into a new routine. The 2008-09 year should prove to be high-paced and exciting with many events and activities already planned for the year.

One of our more fun events is the AOSS Afternoon Tea. Everyday at 3:00 PM faculty, students and staff gather in the second floor lounge to enjoy espresso, tea, hot chocolate, biscotti, and, most of all, a time to talk and get to know each other. Please plan on joining us starting this afternoon.

On Friday, September 26, AOSS is co-sponsoring a visit and lecture by a Hall of Fame Astronaut Jim McDivitt. The lecture, at 12:30 PM, will be held in the Boeing Auditorium in the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) Building. On October 16-17, we will be celebrating the Space Physics Research Laboratory’s history with a two-day symposium, SPRL at 60: Universities and Space Exploration. These and other events and news can be found on the AOSS web site: Be sure to check it often.

Questions? Need assistance? Please ask your advisor, our student services coordinator Margaret Reid or any of the staff. I hope your year is exciting and educational.
