Insight: May 2010
In this issue of Insight, the undergraduate newsletter of the College of Natural Sciences, we celebrate the end of the school year, the accomplishments of our graduating students, and the birth of a new chapter in the college’s story.

We introduce you to the new Health Science Honors program. We feature profiles of two of our graduating students: Ryan Riddle, a biochemistry major who plans to devote his life to the study and science of food, and Devin Matthews, a quantum chemistry prodigy who’s returning to UT in the fall to continue, as a doctoral students, his investigations into the nature of matter. We go with microbiology majors Kelly Broussard and Sami Miller down to the Texas/Mexico border, where they delve into the mysteries of swine flu and pursue their interest in public health. And we honor the spring’s award-winners, including the Dean’s Honored Graduates and the winners at this year’s Undergraduate Research Forum.

Congratulations to everyone on a school year well achieved, and congratulations, in particular, to the graduating class. You’ve made it. Now go out there and do great things!

check this site out, Good post. I study something tougher on completely different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and follow a bit of one thing from their store. I’d choose to use some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
