During the rush of the end of the Spring 2017 semester, faculty and students paused to honor our majors for their excellence, hard work, and contribution to community in and outside of Ebaugh. The department gathered at our annual Alumni Speaker and Awards Ceremony to honor Class of 2017 graduates, celebrate award winners, and hear from our guest speaker, Dr. Erica Smith ’96. Dr. Smith is a Research Assistant Professor in the Kosak Lab in the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.
