MATHEMATICALLY MINDED: “Graduation day—my roommates and I walking up the hill from Jefferson House to Donahue Hall, arm in arm, to line up for the processional. It is a moment that is etched in my mind and in my heart.” - Timothy Woodcock '93, Associate Professor of Mathematics
Meet Professor Woodcock here.

LEGENDARY LEGACY: “I grew up as one of five kids in the projects in Brighton. My father repaired typewriters for the Remington Rand company, and my mother worked long before most mothers worked.
