Remarks from 2012 Donor Appreciation Dinner

Gary Bertoline, dean of the College of Technology, delivered these remarks (with assistance with faculty and students) during the Donor Appreciation Dinner this fall. Next year’s event is set for Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013.


Last week, I started a meeting with my leadership team by saying “I had a dream last night. A dream that I worked at the world’s greatest university. And then I woke up, and it was true.”

Sukumar focuses on athlete's spatial ability, not tuition bill

Karthik Sukumar splits his time between teaching, taking classes and completing his master’s thesis on spatial ability in athletes. It doesn’t leave much time for other activities or part-time jobs.

Which is why he is thankful for the funding he receives as a teaching assistant and the Sriver Graduate Scholarship in Computer Graphics Technology. “It is so important. I don't have to worry about the money aspect,” Sukumar said. “I can focus on what I came here to do.”
