LBS Advising 1967-1999

Lyman Briggs School has given me the opportunity to work with some of the finest undergraduates at Michigan State University. I chose to join the Lyman Briggs staff in 1967 because I felt the residential programs were excellent options for Michigan State students. I was also impressed with the liberal arts curriculum in Briggs that included course work in the history, philosophy, and sociology of science and stressed the importance of writing. What I did not realize is this program would attract some of the best students in the United States and throughout the world. Each summer I experience great joy in welcoming a new class of first-rate students. And each spring during graduation, I am so grateful for the years they have shared with us. It is a privilege to work with them-I learn so much from our time together. I find myself saying to our graduates "Always feel free to come Īhomeā to Briggs and may your lives bring you as many rewards as you have given me."
