Thanks to all of you for a good semester. You were kind to each other. You were curious. You asked excellent questions.
You challenged me when I needed to be challenged.

You were open to new and odd experiences.. like smashing granite, walking around campus, drawing cows on white boards.
You were fun! I looked forward to each Tuesday and Thursday.

I hope you learned something along the way and that you will look at our planet a bit differently and treat it a bit more thoughtfully.
