MSHA Conference ’15

V-BAL had a great showing at the MSHA Conference held in East Lansing this weekend (March 26-28).

We shouldn’t have been surprised to see that 40 (yes, FORTY) percent of the undergraduate projects came from MSU’s CSD Department—and most of those were from V-BAL!

 Good job, V-BAL!

V-BAL’s Russ Receives Research Award

banksA hearty congratulations to V-BAL’s Russ Banks, recipient of the 2015 Contributions to Research (MA) Award.

Russ has regularly presented his research at local and national conferences. He will be completing his MA thesis this Spring and plans to begin his PhD next Fall.

This award, among others, was presented at the CSD department’s annual student awards ceremony on March 6. That same day, the department also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Herbert J. and E. Jane Oyer Lecture with a full schedule of events.
