Missouri Winter Buds
Message from the Chair
Spring is a beautiful time of year at WashU. New blooms on campus remind us that we did it - we got through a long, dark, and physically distant winter. Spring is also the time we celebrate faculty promotions, undergraduate and graduate student awards, and Commencement.
Celebrations often acknowledge accomplishments with social gatherings. We are again celebrating in the physical presence of mentors, colleagues, friends, and loved ones. These celebrations, although modified, are a significant accomplishment. Let's pause for a moment to reflect on the extraordinary scientific and medical efforts that make it possible for us to be together again.
Please also join me in welcoming our newest alumni. We could not be prouder of how they adapted to and persevered in a challenging situation. We are confident that they will face future challenges with compassion and kindness while being the strong and skilled leaders our society needs. Congratulations, Class of 2021!
We hope you can take a minute to update us on your personal and professional accomplishments. We also welcome you to share your memories of your time spent at Washington University.
