Hi Drs. And Advisers,

The College will be hosting a workshop for all students completing a 
thesis or dissertation. Summer's Workshop is Friday, June 15^th at 10 am 
in Aderhold 5.

If possible, please forward this email to all of your graduate students 
(I'm only able to catch the students in the current 2 graduation 
cycles.) We'd love to have them attend prior to writing their theses and 
dissertations.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 
any time.

Thanks,

Gaby
