  1. I agree with Rich–kudos to all! Although I know only Susan, I know what a high bar she sets for herself (and by extension, others). Congratulations!

  2. Warmest congratulations to all the winners, but especially to those I know personally–Susan, Jane, and Millie. The recent book How to Succeed in College: Advice to Students from How College Works by Daniel F. Chambliss and Christopher G. Takacs [Harvard Univ. Press, 2014] reminds us of the importance to good advising: “The people (friends, acquaintances, teachers, staff) whom a student encounters matter more than the [university] programs because the people are alive–or more precisely, because they can instantaneously adjust to the shifting needs and interests of their fellow creatures, the student.” (5)
