Intersections - The COSAM Magazine
FROM THE DEAN
Walking through the new Warren J. Baker Center for Science & Mathematics during finals week reminded me why we’re here at Cal Poly: the students. The building was packed with students studying for exams. Groups gathered in the living rooms for impromptu study sessions, and they were surrounded by beautiful, science-based art. These students are inspiring: their energy, their enthusiasm, their excitement about learning. We want to give you a feel of that excitement, a taste of what Cal Poly is today. To do that, you have to get closer. You have to go with the students inside the classrooms and the research labs, onto the first voyage of our new research vessel and into the local community. But it doesn’t stop there. The College of Science & Mathematics isn’t only the students, faculty and staff on campus. It extends into every corner of the globe where our alumni are making a difference. We know you bring your Cal Poly experience into your lives as resourceful professionals and industry leaders. We know you still Learn by Doing as much as you did when you were here, as much as our current students do. We hope this magazine and our quarterly e-newsletters bring you closer to life on campus. Please keep in touch and bring us closer to the Cal Poly life in your corner of the world.
