Every year the Department holds a Show of Appreciation Day. This is a special day for the Department, which is held on a selected day in the month the Department put out its very first graduates. On this day, the Department recognizes and appreciates selected faculty members, University administrators, students, support staff, alumni, and other key stakeholders of the University for their outstanding roles, contributions, and services to the Department in particular and the University. It is a day of acknowledgment and celebration, a day to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions and services of those working very hard to see our Department, College, and University strong and successful.
