Senior Spotlight

At the final department meeting of the year, we stopped to recognize Nathaniel Rodriguez, one of our five seniors completing his degree in December. Nate has many accolades to his name, including Honor Student, Summer Scholar, Math Tutor, and now recipient of our Outstanding Scholarship in Mathematics award.

All our faculty will miss having him in class, but most of all we will miss his presence in the department every day.  Good luck, Nate!
