Roy Campbell Symposium a success
Friday was spent sharing laughter, memories, and of course research, as we celebrated the decorated career of Roy Campbell. His students have gone on to careers all over the world from industry, to academia, to starting their own companies; the impact of Roy’s 40+ year career will last long after this past week.
Anyone who knows Roy knows his “retirement” means we’re likely to see him back around campus, but we have enjoyed celebrating his successful career
Congratulations Roy, from everyone at CSL!
