Check out the next installment of our new Tiger Pride Student Profiles series. This summer we will highlight students who earned "Student of the Week" recognition from our faculty during the 2017-2018 academic year. Each student of the week was highlighted on our departmental announcement board located on the second floor of Bacoats Hall.
