Hello, alumni, supporters and friends of CEOE,

I hope you are all enjoying the arrival of spring weather. I know I have been grateful for the longer days and warmer temperatures this month.

We have had a lot happening at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment so far this year, and there is much more to look forward to in the months to come.

I want to personally invite all of our CEOE alumni to join me at a reception to kick off Alumni Weekend, at 6 p.m. on June 1. You can register here for the reception and the many exciting events afterwards, from Dela-bration later that evening to the Meet the Fleet activity CEOE is hosting on Saturday to introduce our UD community to the robotic research tools used in the School of Marine Science and Policy.

As always, please stay in touch. I hope to see you at Alumni Weekend!
Warm regards,
Estella Atekwana
