May 1:  THE LAST LECTURE: Please join the Honors Program and the CBU community for the 7th Annual CBU “Last Lecture” on May 1 at 12:45 p.m. in Spain Auditorium, during which Dr. Holmes Peacher-Ryan, Associate Professor of Mathematics, will give his hypothetical “Last Lecture.” Last Lectures usually include the professor’s reflections on their academic career, advice for better living, and even a few laughs. Known for great stories and funny quotes, Dr. Peacher-Ryan will not disappoint. Light refreshments will be served at 12:30. RSVP by 8:00 p.m. the day before, but attend even if you didn’t RSVP (just be sure to sign in). This is open to the entire University and, based on past Last Lectures, this is a not-to-be-missed event!

May 3: The CBU Department of Chemistry will host the 4th Annual Undergraduate Research  Conference.  Please come join us as our Senior Chemistry and Biochemistry majors present their senior research projects.

Br. Edward Salgado, Professor Emeritus, will be taking four students to Haiti for about 8 days in May.

Final Exams:  Wednesday, May 7 through Monday, May 12.  Dr. Pascal Bedrossian has created a final exam schedule where there are no conflicts and no student has four exams on one day – quite a feat.  This year he was asked to do all of this in 16 time periods instead of 18 as in the past, and he managed to do it!

Graduation:  Saturday, May 17!
